This picture is probably more Crane-ish than my Crane Bushi. I tried to stay true to Crane Clan colors but its hard when all you got is sky blue and silver. That is why there is some red trim in there. The background is experementation. The poem on the left says: Frail from the journey Across a barren feild blow A wanderer's dream Its one of the last poems written by the master of haiku Matsuo Basho. Cranes are all about that sort of stuff.

Lovely colouring. The background is especially beautiful, and I love her posture. Did you write the Japanese haiku on the side? It looks very professional. Well done.

I really like the positioning of her sword and the light at the base of it. Nice hood. Her outfit looks a little too modern though. Good coloring job, and good anatomy, though her hands look a little big.

AHHH Are you sure this is Manga? This looks like normal AMERICAN comics. A word of advice take some Manga and anime courses I'm sure they'll ..er...teach you better but anyways overall the drawings very good nice backround....

Yea, I can't find the haiku either.

I like her clevage, personally. It's fantasy, right? I don't mean that in a dirty way, but if it's fantasy, outfits can be as impractical as you like.

I really, really like her hands. Well done!
