Butterflies and Hurricanes by fayrenpickpocket Butterflies and Hurricanes by fayrenpickpocket
My spin on Musashi, for a weekly art challenge. <3 Named after the Muse song, whose title I felt was somewhat applicable. And I suck at naming.

The butterfly tatoo is not my design, but an emblem that was commonly used by warlords and their samurai. I have no idea if it was actually used in the time of Musashi, or if he had it, but it was too neat of a concept to pass up, so take that history!!

Plus I'm pretty sure he didn't have a glowy sword in history either.

The lighting from the sword is amazing, and I love the anatomy and foreshortening in his hair~

Hahah, more than the awesomeness and beauty of the way you drew this, I am in love with...his teeth! Hahaha, once I saw them I can't ignore them! They affect the way I see this picture XD
