Miyamoto Bennosuke by RoninsUltramix Miyamoto Bennosuke by RoninsUltramix
Made to be the or a main protagonist in our conceptual comic series along with Arashi Oburumaru. Tried to make research about Musashi (who inspired the character) and made his proportions accordingly since it is said that Musashi is tall for a japanese demograph. Made his hair protrude from one side (it's not because of the wind) like how Kakashi's hair points to one direction, only his point downward. The color scheme is a Seishiro (from samurai shodown) color code done in reverse. Not satisfied really with the swords though, could have done better.

INFO:

Name: Miyamoto Bennosuke
Weapons: Chiisakatana and Odashi (Short and Long Sword)
Style: Switch Blade Raptured Bolt

An upcoming new talent of SDL from the village of Kirae, he is thought by one of the finest swordsman of the land. He is one of the most popular Samurais around is ranked in the top 50 in the league, a considerable feat for a newcomer. With the rumors of the legendary sword being sighted in resent months, he begins his search for the priceless blade. On the way he meets with Oburumaru who joins his journey to find the sword and teach him how to refine his skill although unknown to him that Oburumaru himself is pursuing the sword for himself.

Always serious and works very hard at training, he is rarely seen without his sword. He also possesses an uncanny speed and reflex that enables him to adapt to the situation. His technique's most notable feature is the speed he switches between his two swords. Most accounts tell of tales where his slash hits an opponent before they even see his arm move and a secret move where in the blade of his sword disappears making it hard for opponents to hit it.

Notable also is the fact that 'Osuke cannot read. He says that a swordsmans only weapon is his katana not a pen.

So he's more like a young Miyamoto Musashi...ironic considering that Musashi encouraged calligraphy, tea-ceremony, and the arts. :D

Cool. Actually, Benno-kun over there somehow wriggled his way into my sketchbook--and I get the feeling I'll be drawing fan art of him soon. XD

Mmmhmm, fav all right^^ I like the sword he's holding more, but I get the feeling it needs a lighter colour sheath so it balances with the other sword which has a lighter handle.
