The lighting is really strange in these photos, and doesn’t quite show the details of the mask properly but here’s the headf which I did decide to attach, with the whole layered-metal style of protection at the back, and I think I managed to make this suit the style quite well, considering I made this part fairly quickly. I made a mask which I tried to make proportional to the samurai’s face as much as possible, but the texture looks a bit messy in these photos too.
I’m wondering whether I should add some “horns” in a samurai style on the head maybe?
In any case, now I’m making the sword and then a base to be able to present my samurai properly.
I was hoping on this model to make it highly detailed, with lots of colourful patterns (like a real samurai armour), and I think that these repetitive line patterns do the job well.
Doing the head and arms next, and then I just need to attach a sword to the protruding bit of frames from the arm and I’m done with this samurai!
I’m starting a new project (straight away again), this time I’m building onto a frame.
Somehow this feels like “real” sculpture…
