I downloaded some flash sketches when I was bored from a torrent, the title of the folder was like horchi or hirishi or something like that. But one of the pieces really grabbed me, it was a man in an oriental type robe wrestling a koi while he had a knife in his mouth. Does this piece have any meaning? it was really sick and I was never into Koi tats, I thought that shit was played, but man this image just gets me excited. I will post it when I get home in a couple hours for you guys, maybe you can give me some history on the artist or something. Also there is a folder out there in torrent land called 108 heroes, I think the drawings are based ont eh suikoden games I am not sure though, some really cool art there.

Cool idead and picture (above) man!

From the wiki link:

"Kintaro (often translated as "Golden Boy") is a folk hero from Japanese folklore. A child of superhuman strength, he was raised by a mountain ogress on Mount Ashigara. He became friendly with the animals of the mountain, and later, after catching the terror of the region around Mount Ooe, Shutendouji, he became a loyal follower of Minamoto no Yorimitsu under the new name Sakata no Kintoki. He is a popular figure in noh and kabuki drama, and it is a custom to put up a Kintar? doll on Boy's Day in the hope that boys will become equally brave and strong."

Images I dug up:
