I absolutely love this character. I had a friend introduce me to this character in the 90's. I collected the First publications releases. They were edited from the manga to big comic size with beautiful covers and introductions by Frank Miller. What an orientation to such an amazing body of work! So in honour of writer Kazuo Koike and the artist Goseki Kojima's work I give you my "stab" at a figure for this legendary character.
I finished him last month. Seeing loosecollector's recent addition (that looks amazing by the way), it pushed my butt into gear to do the work in photoshop to get this sucker ready, so thanks loosecollector, for not only inspiring me with your original Lone Wolf entry, but motivating me again with your new one!
This thing is a huge mish-mash of parts. Some parts needed some "special care" to assemble.
torso, and arms to wrist: Legends Punisher
cloak, arm sleeves, and hands: L.O.T.R. Gandalf
legs and feet: Sota Akuma
head and gi: Neca Ryu
The head needed a dremil overhaul in places, so I cleaned it up and sculpted it to what I needed using a 30-minute epoxy. After paints I added the hair. To get his wild unruly look.
I gave it a flat colour paint-over, and dry-brushed layers for flavour for highlights and shadow work. I also gave it a dirt treatment for the mangy mongrel!
Thanks for the view!
