Art constest special Miura Kentaro Tribute

Even though, i still havent yet read Berserk, its still on my TRL, i know a lot about it, and I can say, Miura's talent is unparalleled, I have skimmed several times, pages of Berserk, i have rarely such a neat and detailed art it really hurts to see such genius dying so young.

I just did quickly that set as an humble tribute.

Mangahelpers Art Tribute - Kentaro Miura | Style: Avatar & Signature Set | "Farewell, Miura-Sensei..." by Seraph



Hey MH-Family,

words couldn't express my shock and sadness over the sudden passing of Kentaro Miura early May. As someone who had been reading his work "Berserk" for years it feels like a close friend decided to move far away without saying Goodbye to me. Berserk was one of the first manga i read, and to this day, one of my all time favorites. I would always be hyped for a new chapter dropping and looking forward to any news in regards to the story's continuation or any interviews that Miura-Sensei gave. His skill and devotion to his work fascinated and inspired me very often, it inspired me to do my best in Life no matter what i'm dealing with and to stand by any decision or action i take.

Miura-Sensei possessed a great gift, he had the ability to draw beautiful panels that didn't just shine because they were very detailed and nice to look at but also because they had emotion in them. You could tell Miura-Sensei's passion for his series with every line he drew, with every action that transpired within the story. Every struggle, every moment of warmth or sadness, Miura would pour his heart into that. Maybe, as a Fan, i'm interpreting a tad too much into this but it just feels that way to me. Miura loved his work, he loved working together with others and he loved being a Mangaka. He was always happy about Berserk's constant growing popularity and the Fans love for his series.

Berserk's story may never come to a conclusion, but with everything that's happened and now Miura-Sensei's passing, i feel like things ended at the point they were meant to. And i'm fine with that. I really am.

May you rest in peace Miura-Sensei, you earned and deserve it. My thoughts and hopes go out to your family and friends.:hi



I chose to make a set that shows Guts,Griffith, Skull Knight/Gaiseric and Zodd the Immortal. Among all the characters in Berserk the 4 of them make for the most impactful and most meaningful moments in the series for me.

I added some visual effects and frame/s to the pictures with Photoscape and GIMP.

avatar pic source
signature pic source
The source pic for avatar turns out to be transparent. Didnt realize it before. When I was doing experiment with it, I found it out xD Added black and red background in it, 50:50. The Japanese font is AA_amakara_sample from The white and black feathers are from Google (I lost the source, but nevertheless credits to the owners), I just adjusted the brightness, color, etc.

And with this entry, I present this to @SirSamuel016. Killing two birds with one stone. Happy wearing, Sammy
