Re: The Samurai and the Sea Dragon



Kanji verification: 侍海龍

侍: samurai
海: ocean
龍: Chinese-type dragon

侍海龍: No meaning. There is no known compound 海龍. Supposing that is ignored, to say "samurai and ocean dragon" it would need to say 侍と海龍.

I'm conflicted on this shirt, it looks amazing and I love the design, but just not digging the kanji. I would wear it if not for the hokey japanese writing, I think the art makes a more powerful statement when it's left to speak for itself.

I started out just sketching in photoshop earlier in the evening and ended up staying up all night to finish this piece. Hope you like how it turned out (and hopefully it'll still look the same when I wake up)

動物: Incorrect character (first kanji). The intended character is what I've written here, but in the design it is illegible with a major stroke error. If it were correct it would say animals.

Re: Dragon Maiden



Man I am really not on the ball with this derby- Anyway, this was a sketch that I was working on earlier in the evening and I ended up staying up all night to finish it. I went through a lot of versions of this, so hopefully it'll look the same when I wake up in the morning

But it also depends on the amount of respect you are paying to the person you are thanking so since this was the lowest respect version of the statement, maybe Mr. Roboto was offended and did not want to say "Your welcome."



I'm pretty sure the levels of politeness are more along the lines of

Arigatou (least polite)
Domo Arigatou (Middle)
Domo Arigatou Gozaimasu (most polite)

You also have to keep in mind the musical aspect of rythm, the extra syllables may have been left out for a reason.

The perspective on the umbrella seems a little odd, but the colors really pop on the shirt! Overall, I like it.

I think this is a good effort, Ramy. I appreciate the deviation from your normal style. Just not sure about the teal squiggly/wavey tail - it seems too sketchy and rough to me.

Re: Spirit of the Mountain Pass



Kanji verification: 美永遠

美: beauty
永遠: eternity; immortality, although the second character is illegible; the bottom part of the right radical is distorted beyond readability; the only reason I knew what it was supposed to be is because the artist said what it meant.

美永遠: No meaning.
