I've touched up a few places on the samurai, taking the rest of the purple up to the brighter highlights. Aside from that, my focus has been the pattern on the sleeve. I finished the white circles and started working on the lines. Here's where I hit a bit of a block. I started on the back of the sleeve and made them a bit thicker. I went thinner on the front and made some slight changes to the color mix. I like the thinner lines better... but I'm still not sure I'm completely happy with it. What do you all think? What about trying a different color? Something darker like the black on his chest design? I considered purple, but it's already used for small edging details and I'm not sure it would be good to use here too. Keep in mind I plan to add even more lines. Plus there will be designs inside the circles.
And this was my inspiration for the design and why I initially thought to go with a yellow shade. It's more of a metallic yellow here, but I'd rather avoid metallics for the cloth on the figure
