My new SAMURAI image from my artist friend!

My new SAMURAI image from my artist friend!
24 Jan 2010 17:49:36

Wow! I just can't resist posting it everywhere I can! My friend artist Maks Bogdanovsky aka Bo_stitch made a picture of me in a samurai gear!
It was his Christmas present for me and it is just fabulous! The hieroglyphs (obviously) say Usagi Joou, which means Queen Rabbit.

Thing is, this helmet is not Maks's fantasy: it is an actual Middle Age Japanese helmet in a shape of my totem animal^__^
From today this picture is on my profile on MAS^^
And, for a little reference, here are some photos of me^^

I think Maks captured me just perfectly^^ This is even more awesome because we've never met. He lives in a Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine and we just know each other through my blog on Livejournal! Thank you, Bo!

хехехехе)) Долго мы как то с Максом к этому подходили. Я все думала, вот, друг-художник, как же не нарисовать ему меня?

That's very cool. I never knew there were samurai bunny helms. XD
I wonder if they ever made a bat themed samurai helm? That'd be awesome. ^_^

Rabbit is some kind of sacred animal in China and Japan, as far as I know. Eg. a moon rabbit, frequently mentioned in various anime: japanese people believe that this slight darkening on the moon form a rabbit's silhouette^^
BTW, I tried googling samurai rabbit helmet and found many bizzare shapes. Like that:

Hmmm, that design actually looks really familiar, but I'm not sure where I've seen it before.... Most likely in some random anime or something.

Oh, that's impressive! I'd have been very happy if someone had drawn me; so I guess, Usagi no kimochi ga wakaru n da :)
And the photos are lovely :)

I can try drawing you if you want. I can't promise something as awesome as Samurai Usagi, but I was an art student at one point in my life. It'd be fun and good practice for me, too. ^_^

Wow. On the one hand it sounds so curious. I can't remember anyone drawing me... Sugoi! Great!
But on the other one I feel kinda shy. I don't want anyone to waste his time on me... Besides it has no connection to the site.
So, it's completely up to you :)

Oh, drawing is never a waste of time. I really need to start drawing more again. And at least I won't be drawing you in person. That would be something to get shy about. Besides, if I'm not able to draw anything I think is good enough I might be too shy to show it to you anyway. ^_^"

Oh, ok... I see. But if you draw something connected to me, you should show! Otherwise it will be unfair! :D

Ah, guess that just means I have to make sure I draw something worth showing you then. XD
