A fanart sketch of the wandering samurai in a dystopian future, seeking a way back to the past to undue the future of the evil shape shifting master of darkness, Aku.
Samurai Jack is one of my favorite shows from my childhood. It was one of the many shows that got me hooked on drawing and sketching. The art style had this mixture of action and beauty. Some scenes had this comic book like appearance with huge battles and combat. Then other scenes would be toned down to allow for more emotion, letting you take in the scenery.
So when I heard Jack was back, I decided to sketch something up. This sketch was inspired by Jack’s new look. It has been several years since Jack was flung into thw future by the evil Aku. He looks like he’s been through hell. He’s covered in scars and rags from numerous battles. He’s ready to end Aku’s tyranny, so he can finally rest and return to his homeland in the past.
Samurai Jack belongs Genndy Tartakovsky and Cartoon Network/Toonami
