Daily Deviation

Given 2002-09-17
When I first laid eyes on arcipello's latest piece, my jaw hit my knees. Sure enough, it went Top Daily Favourites in a little under 34 seconds, so it is with utmost respect that I feature Shen Ku - The Dark Samurai, and head off to DAPrints to purchase a copy of it!

i must say the attention to detail in your pieces make them one of a kind. There is a subtle manner in which you draw the eyes through the picture as if saying "and look here, now what of here, oh and here too." You are a master of your craft.
