Samurai Thumbnail Sketch

This is a blown up, cleaned up, thumbnail sketch of a Samurai triptych I am planning out. I just wanted to draw a huge battle scene with Samurai. I liked the idea of doing a triptych because I prefer landscape/widescreen orientations and the triptych is new for me and extends the image quite far. My thumbnails probably only make sense to me, but I did try to add some color to sort out the chaos. The colors are completely arbitrary right now. They will likely change drastically. Not sure if I will try to be historically accurate or go crazy with the colors. I just need to take a ton of reference shots and I can begin the rough sketch phase. I intend for the final to be approximately 11" x 51".
