Mokuso in smoke and blood by Deimantas Mokuso in smoke and blood by Deimantas
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

Mokuso concept

No heavy post-production really: some basic adjustments, some burning and dodging, a graduated filter here and there - all within the camera raw.

Thank you all for your faves and comments! I truly appreciate them!

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-02-15
Mokuso in smoke and blood by ~Deimantas feels like seeing the deviantart :meditate: icon in real life. From Wikipedia: Mokuso is a Japanese term for meditation, especially when practiced in the traditional Japanese martial arts. Mokuso (pronounced "moh-kso") is performed before beginning a training session in order to "clear one's mind", very similar to the zen concept of mushin. ( Featured by evanhwong )

ehm, no? this is not cool?
why do i find this under ''bujinkan''????
violence and bloodshed is not and never the aime of this martial art!!! this is so silly, why should there be blood on the ground though it is about to be calm and to meditate in a way, it's a vehement protest, because to meditate does'nt fit to killing somebody.
moreover the costume is so bad and not authentic.

ah, does nobody have any hunch what bujinkan is about? -.-

however... this is only my personal opinion and tell me if i'm wrong...

Chillax already, I perfectly know it has nothing to do with what bujinkan is really about, this is only the omote. Stop being an authentic-tradition-preserving nazi. You are wrong. The more people know about bujinkan the better. And since this photo was featured as a daily deviation, lots of people who never heard of bujinkan before now are aware of it.

yeah, but the picture they get is totally wrong.
how can you say "it has nothing to do with what bujinkan is really about"
and say at the same time that now more people know about bujinkan?
when you never showed a picture about bujinkan, how can people know about it?

do you really think they will google it?

i don't know if a wrong picture is better than no one.
don't be a attention whore...

I'm not an attention whore, and yes, I think some people will google it :) If everything what bujinkan is about would be open, there would be no point in bujinkan. There is ura and there is omote, and this is definitely not ura, I'm sure you know that. Are you sure YOUR picture is perfectly right? I'm not. Furthermore, I don't believe in wrong/right dichotomy :)

ok. now you've got my respect. you're so strong-minded and you stand by your opinion, for me that's very impressive.
i'll backtrack from this and respect your point of view.
