I wanted to make another Japanese theme like "The Samurai" [link]
I did in the past. I kept the painting style I seem to favor, and makes the subjects that I crop and paste seem to blend in better. It took me a great deal to stop messing with this image... I'm almost never really happy of a finished image. I keep going back to it and fixing some imperfection I don't like... and back again.. and back again. I uploaded and updated this image 5x so far haha... you can hardly notice any changes... oh well I should just let it be!Update:
