Don't Let Go - Coloured by lunaSerene Don't Let Go - Coloured by lunaSerene
Original draw from the cover "The Blade of the Immortal" Vol. 15. Ch05.

Finally finished my coloured version. I'm not very satisfied with the final result :p, but i preferred to stop and leave it as it is. One day I might redo and do it better.

Hope you like and I would love to have some feedback from you all =)

Few hours ago I ve just ended reading it. I feel uneasy after it, because its so contrary to my way of thinking.  But this does not change the fact that its one of the best drawn manga Ive readed.
I like this draw:)

Glad you liked ;)
And also is one of my top 10 best mangas I've read.
I too, wasn't very happy with the ending. It wasn't what I thought would be.
I'me not very romantic but I was wishing to end like that haha

Im not very romantic either and I dont think Im childish, but seriously how could she choose past after all that she witnessed and put it above the one and only person who could ever understand her and resonate to her feelings fully. -.-

Yeah! I thought the same. and why did he also left?
It was so long that I don't remember very well, but I'm quite sure that the old lady promissed to give
his mortality back when he finished the mission.... :o
I was expecting that. he mortal and they together. But all just became a loop story :cry:

He left because if I correctly readed the scene, he wanted to give freedom to Anotsu, they clashed their swords in an honorable battle and the outcome was a spiritual death of Anotsu, in a way his redemption. And beside the vengeance of Rin, as she also said, in other circumstances those two men would be comrades. And Rin, despite all her talk, made her choice in that very moment and attemped on sneaky killing wounded Anotsu. I can understand that this was a choice between staying in the past or unknown future. But I dont believe after what she saw, that this was her only right option.
Yes and it really dissapointed me.

Yeah me too. She should stop the vengeance, cause killing only bring more killing (not wanting to sound righteous)
But, it was also a little bit disappointed for me. It felt like he rushed the end, even though he spent 20 years on this
But again, it could be just me..... i just wanted for them to be together.
that is why I coloured this cover!! I think it was when she showed a little bit or her feeling towards him :cry:

I'm not aware of "The Blade of the Immortal" however I absolutely love this image. It is packed with raw emotion and tells a powerful story. I really admire the effects of the sky as well as the blood. It's just such an eye catching piece! Oh, and thanks for the llama. ;p

Great job on Lin and Manji. Samura's manga is one of the best I've ever read.
Maybe you should have put a little more contrast in your picture ( I just say "maybe", I don't want to be rude!).
I don't know if the french versions I have kept the original covers. All the covers I know are black and white and are highly contrasted, which fits quite well with the ambiguity of the two main characters.
Your cover is awesome, anyway, I really like it, and the pose you chose really deserves the relationship between the characters.
And about the swastika, Hitler's spoiled one was right-facing, Manji's one is left-facing and has nothing to do with nazism, as Mutemutable kindly and shortly said before...

Thank you so much!! I really appreciate your comment its so rare for me to receive a review or critique about my work. But I think I know what you mean, the cover, [link] This scene happens around sun set...I think :hmm: :p
But I had sun set on my mind and I wanted to do kinda dark with a few light.
And Definitely, Hitler ruined the symbol, most of people think is "his" symbol and all associate with Nazism all the time unfortunately. thanks again, especially about the info about the symbol :D

:boing: Swastika is a symbol of eternalty, and is a symbol from Asia used in buddhism.^^ Great art! :3 the style reminds me a little of the final fantasy games.^^

Oh thanks a lot for telling me. Now understand why, because the main character is immortal so they put the symbol on his clothes.I always tried to figure it out. :aww: ;)

I don't really know what the creator was thinking when he used this symbol. But it's from manga "The Blade of Immortal"
In the story, they only mention the character when the others clans are looking for him.... what is a holocaust ?

I just went, research it now. I read a lot about history specially this area, don't know why I never kept this word. But this manga has nothing to do with this. Lots of people are killed, definitely! but is a war between martial arts, dojos, whom disagree about the rules certain rules around "samurais". something like this. Really good ;)
