This Week’s Sanity Drawings: RŌNIN

I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of rōnin. Being a “wave man” who serves no one, pays allegiance to no one, answers to no one, takes jobs as they come along, that way of life sounds like a way made especially for me.

I suppose that’s why I chose to draw my favorite rōnin for this week’s sanity drawing. Or maybe I was just drawn to draw them because I like these characters:


Toshiro Mifune, as Sanjuro in “Yojimbo” and “Sanjuro”


Ogami Itto and Ogami Daigoo, from “Lone Wolf And Cub” by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima


…can’t help wondering if you could recognize this modern-day rōnin…

As usual, I drew directly without any pencil sketch. I made the basic forming lines using the brush and light brown watercolor, then started to fill in the blank areas until I got the shape I wanted to see, and added other colors. That’s how I messed up Daigoro’s cheek and Itto’s hand a bit.


Now, I wonder what next week’s sanity drawing will be. Any idea?
