Fun Fact: Mugen (無限, Infinity) is one of the main characters of Samurai Champloo along with Jin and Fuu. Both Mugen and Jin accompany Fuu in her search for "the samurai who smells of sunflowers." Mugen serves as a foil to Jin in terms of personality and disposition. His fighting style is characterized as being reckless and erratic.
This here is my FFXIV Samurai icon design. Big fan of Final Fantasy XIV and always loved all the different class logos/icons. Wanted to capture the color scheme of each class' soul crystal in a unique way. All of my designs can also be found in poster form on my Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/shop/StromDesigns
