Ancient Warriors!!

Before I burry my face in the comic book again, here is a piece for Bobby Chiu's new book. I'm going to ink it and drops some flats in soon. Just a quick update on the grass as I wasnt happy how it was in the earlier version and here is as Dennis DeMercer deduced so well was my influence on this piece the "seven samurai". To be honest i have never seen the film but this image was so stunning that I couldnt resist a little homage. Which is a nice way of simply saying i'm stealing it.hehehheeh!!
