A sneak peek, by permission

thelyn said I could post a glimpse of the gorgeous samurai boy she's finishing up for me . . .

The Saiki head is by a Japanese sculptor (http://minawa.main.jp); he's on an SD13 long-legged boy body. His tattoo is the Shinsengumi's motto, makoto: "truth" or "sincerity."

There's going to be a Festival of Grumpiness around my house when he gets home, yes indeedy.

*hugs thelyn*

I keep wandering through the forest of Japanese history and getting lost, myself . . . how I wish I had gotten serious about this stuff twenty years ago, when I was in a place that offered, you know, CLASSES about it. **sigh* for the travails of autodidacticism*

I toyed with the idea of naming this boy Ranmaru, but I just don't like the sound of it. :-( His sculptor is very consciously working from traditional Japanese sources--her blog is a fun read, despite the murk of translation software, because she's always reading/watching/visiting things that connect to the Kabuki theater or feudal Japanese history or Tokugawa-period prints. (One of her recent comments amused me: "The book Bushido and Eros makes the head spin round and round!" Sadly, I can't find a translation of Bushido and Eros anywhere--and I'm dying to read it!)
