Samurai - Uma Shika by emersontung Samurai - Uma Shika by emersontung
Another piece for my "Legend of Samurai" project. This is the Uma Shiki, described as a one eyed horned horse, and here is the original painting of it in the Bakemono Zukushi handscroll, painted in the Edo period.-->[link]

I just decided to make it a robot unicorn cyclops motorcycle.

This creature will probably be a boss battle, and once the samurai defeats it, it will become the samurai's mount, and will aid the samurai in battles. Still contemplating if I should make them "gattai."

The one in the Bakemono Zukushi handscroll looks like it has a penis on its head.

I bet their jaws would fall off, their eyes would go like jo-jo:s and then they'd faint.
That's how awesome I think it would be to see that thing in real life. :la:

Cool. Nice painting, about the gattai you can go half way and just have a mode where the samurai attaches Centaur style and uses the horses tail as a lance. There is no reason why all combined modes have to be humanoid.

Keep it up.

emersontung Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
hahaha.. dude, that was exactly the initial sketch I did for the gattai concept! no kidding. the tail as a lance is a pretty sweet idea though. I'll definitely keep that noted.

great minds think alike eh? ;P

Unicorn, cyclops, Motorcycle! - most evil....

Mount up on this unstoppable stag today!
Gattai? GATTAI!!!!

The other front armature is in the distance and in shadow- still... kinda unnoticeable...

And cold steel and deadly red is an awesome combo!
