Samurai (侍?) is the term for the military nobility of pre-industrial Japan. In Chinese, the character 侍 was originally a verb meaning to wait upon or accompany a person in the upper ranks of society, and this is also true of the original term in Japanese, saburau. In both countries the terms were nominalized to mean “those who serve in close attendance to the nobility,” the pronunciation in Japanese changing to saburai. By the end of the 12th century, samurai became almost entirely synonymous with bushi (武士), and the word was closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. The samurai followed a set of rules that came to be known as bushidō.
Rogue samurai is basically a swordman without master or known as Ronin.

Step one, I start drawing her head from the side view with under sketch marks for eye, nose, and lips in the correct position and proportion. Step two, then I draw her hair, shoulder and part of her cloth. Step three, now I use soft shading with medium gray on her figure and head. Step four, I add some trees in the background to make it some kind of forest setting. Step five, I went over her face for final drawing since I already have eye, nose and lips established on 1 and 2. Then I shade her hair with very dark gray. Step six, I add medium gray to her cloth, light gray to her skin, then outline the overall drawing. Finished!
