Dad's Armor - Samurai Sketch

So this sketch page is where I came up with the name for my sketch sessions.

I broke one of my main rules for this particular sketch. I normally don't allow myself to have any preconceived ideas about what I will be drawing.


In this case I wanted to draw a samurai. But as I got into it I turned it into a child in his dad's armor. Of course this was still done with no reference.

Looking at images of samurai warriors after creating this sketch I realize how many details are missing and many of the mistakes I made.

However I fell in love with the recycled paper and the white colored pencil.
