It took me forever to get around to doing it, but I whooped up this drawing for the Hunt sisters’ Art for Japan charity auction today.

I’ll let you know when it goes up for auction.

If you’re interested, read behind the cut to see the process of how I came up with this image!

I knew I wanted to draw a samurai, so we have that element.

But I didn’t know what I wanted to have him doing, so I flipped through my sketchbook and came across this weird drawing:

Then I just decided ‘What the hell’ and threw the two elements together and did this real quick sketch [pardon the low self-esteem that shows up near the sketch]. I liked it and then busted out the final image you see above.

The lesson here is no matter how dumb or weird a drawing in your sketchbook might be, you never know when it’s going to come in handy!
