Thanks NYP, for posting, for your vote, and for allowing me to compete on a much bigger playground then I am accustomed to.

AJ your piece is great and I have watched you steadily improve month after month and I look forward to seeing more from you now and in the future. Good job!!

NYP, you continue to inspire me and depress me all at the same time.

Yeah thats really good, Erik.

AJ's and Brian's entries are both fine representations of Samurai warriors, but the only one that screams "whoa, BAD@$$ Samurai, do not mess with this guy" is Erik's. Somehow it looks strangely like one of those old Japanese Samurai paintings as reinterpreted by Heavy Metal Magazine. Nice job to all 3, but NYP's got my vote this time out.

Wow NYP, that IS a badass samurai.

Agreed, everyone did a fine job here...I'm especially impressed with AJ of late.... But nothing screams bad ass more than NYP's.
That thing is monstrously awesome.

Great call - you're right on. No question about who's samurai fits the bill. I see all those armor studies are still paying off, Erik!
As for AJ, like the others said you continue to improve - cool to see. BFowler that's looking good but I think a background with some extra flavor would've gone far.
Here I was expecting samurais with 'sensitive stomachs'. j/k NYP went a little over board badass but that tiger won the game. :)

Seems I came back to PJ a little too freakin late. Wish I could jumped in on this one.
Great works on all sides here. Very nice indeed. Gotta hand it to NYP though.

Thanks for the comments guys, and for those of you who could not participate in this draw off I may decide to do another one real soon with a different topic of course and an aggressive deadline.

I rather liked the samurai theme.

That NYP Samurai is indeed badass, but that tiger at his feet is what really sold me. I can almost feel the texture of that fur.

NYP came to win and take no prisoners. That is awesome!
