This painting was given to my friend, who is really fascinated by Japanese culture, as a 21st birthday gift. Although I painted it a few days ago, I didn't want to ruin the surprise by posting it on deviantArt and letting him accidentally notice it maybe. And I have to admit, seeing a smile on his face as he saw it was one of the biggest compliments ever to me. Hope that you like it too.
