Of all your work, this is probably the most convincing. Keep up the good work.

If you'd like to cosplay as Stung Hornet from the new series I'm doing concept art for, feel free. It should be pretty easy.

A sample is here: [link]

If you let me use a picture of you as Stung Hornet on the wiki, then I'll return the favor by advertising your work on this site in the external links section of mine. It's up to you.

I look at that and I think about "Last samurai" of Mark Ravina. Othervise pose of model is so true. You are very good photographer.

I love the contrast of tones in this picture. And the way the dark trees echo the black robe, and the hard yet impassive look of the model.
Constructive criticism: whilst the posture makes for a nice composition, what's the samurai doing here? Not protecting herself from an oncoming cut or about to make a cut, because the sword's incorrectly placed for either. Yes, I study Japanese swordsmanship but I'm not being pedantic for the sake of it: the better the pose the better the picture will be, surely? A photo of someone running looks better than a photo of someone standing with their legs apart and bent pretending they're running. There's a line where realism and artistry intersect and finding that point makes the best pictures.

I had seen the other photo first and was desperately wising for a sword
but I though "we mustn't ask for too much....oh no, that would not do at all"
until i saw this XD. Thank you for making my day
I love how you picked an authentic woodsy grassland background as well as the color of the kimono

I believe and it is only my opinion this far exceeds your other work. Choice of poses, choice of models, lighting. as well her own expression.

Thankyou! ^__^ This is actually one of my favorites!
Most of the work I post on this gallery were all convention photoshoots shot on convention grounds. This piece was from a planned photoshoot where I was working with an aspiring model and could perfect the lighting and poses without any rush. However, I strive to achieve this sort of quality with my convention photoshoots and only hope to become better at it :)
