I recently discovered my local library in Dingle has a small but pretty interesting DVD collection which happily includes the Japanese movie RAN directed by Akira Kurosawa. Find out about this visually stunning movie on the RAN wiki. Inspired by the sometimes dramatic beauty of this film I just had to do some doodles which you can find below. Ink and felt-tip marker in A6 sketchbook.

Really enjoyed making these sketches, particularly the samurai and his action gesture. It never ceases to amaze me how people can have such different preferences as my fellow Drink & Draw buddies all preferred the horseman sketch below.
