Here's the story behing this samurai. When he was a baby he was trainned to follow in his fathers foot-steps. (His father was the General of an army for the Kinto Dynasty) At the age of 12, his father is killed in the middle of a big war and the emporor ordered to get the General's son and make him take over. (The boy's name is Sashi) Sashi took over and won the battle. -Fast forward into his life- He runs away one day in the middle of a battle (age 25) and meets up with the girl that he is going to marrie. They get married and raise a son. (Age 34) His family is killed, his mother and son mudered and his wife raped until she died. Sashi gets to his house and finds his wife and child dead....anyway, this is a drawing of him holding his wife's scarf and his son's practice katana.

Holy crap, that's so sad! He should have called Shiro! ( My character ) She's kinda like a thriller with a switch personality. There's Seirei Shiro, the nice, stupid, hyper girl everyone loves, and Iori, the one who was born from all of Shiro's hate, pain, and sorrow and only lives on killin' others. Other than that, he should have called Shiro/Iori!

PS: Very awsome picture but sad story, somewhat of what happened to Shiro, still, AWSOME WORK~!

PSS: Shiro's crazy but Iori is insane. xD

ok, I know it's been a LONG time since you posted this comment... but now is when I got to reading it... my thoughts are:

Shiro and Sashi would probably make a hilarious duo if put together lol. I like the idea hehehe, I'd be willing to do a collab at some point with those two hehe.

Oh! You're the one guy who made that samurai paintin' when he lost his kid and wife? ;~;

I don't mind if you use my character but just remember to tell people it belongs to me so other sneaky people don't get ideas, know what I mean? <<; If you want a lil' bit more info on my character, just say so. :D
poor Sashi!!! :cry:
... ;_; That is so depressing I'm crying irl. And I can't wipe my eyes 'cause I was picking jalapeños!!! TT_TT I would huggle Sashi if I could... *imaginarily huggles Sashi*
wow! did you come up with all that? well its awesome! what Program did you use? wow very very heart wrenching! I wish it was a anime or manga! great job
oh how sad... such a shame something so horrible could happen to a gentle soul like him (well he looks it to me :)) plus he's very handsome, who would want to hurt him?
beautiful work, i love it! :D
Very nice drawing, very sad story...:cries:

i love the pic and story so very sad.

"Umeko....Yukio....Okaasama....I-I" he sob pulling his beloved wife's scarf and his son's practice katana closer to his face as he fought the tears. "I shouldn't have left you alone like that" as a tear of blood ran down from his fisted hand "those BASTARDERS WILL PAYYYYYYYYYY!" his sword shined diedly in the sunlight as he with drew it. quickly tieing his wife's scarf around the handle and his son's katana to his side. Sashi vowed to slaughter those who killed his family.

sorry couldn't help it ^_^ Umeko means plum blossom child and Yukio means snow and okaasama means mother in japanese.
