^ Just wondering do u want this to be like the painting, more elegant type style.. Or do u want to change to more of a darker style? also u dont get what u would add to that painting to make a japanese influence, only thing i could see is maybe japanese clouds but that might look funny with that painting.. Just a thought, but i just looked at Kore' porfolio and looks like if u were to turn that into a darker type style of the painting(black/gray work) he would be a good idea but ifniot u want go the same way as the painting, then i would go somewhere.. Also great idea for a tattoo and some artists out there this would be a dream tattoo especially if u are doing this as whole back piece!
I would be using that pic as just a reference. I want it to be drawn out in a japanese style, I.E satan looking like a traditonal oni type demon, and michael looking more like a samurai I guess. I keep going back and forth between that, or making it into a darker theme like you mentioned, If that makes any sense. thanks, I like it and it has meaning for me. btw hisshou means certain victory.
