Final Fight Double Impact got released and I couldn't buy it fast enough, lol! I went through it as one of my favorite Capcom characters, Cody, and when I was done, I took a look at the Cody I had made to honor the Final Fight franchise, and thought, "...not good enough!" so I went to work right away. So here he is, no.60, Cody V.2 for my Final Fight set! I have to be honest in that I didn't come up with this recipe and I really wish I knew who came up with it to give them the credit for it, but thanks to some pics I was given as reference, I was able to make a Cody that I am very proud of...with some of my own touches. Here's the build break down:
Head: Sota Ken alt. head, cut w/sculpt
Body: Sota Guile, sanded, sculpted
Fore-arms & Hands: Scratch build (textured w/engraving bit), Sota Adon
Legs & Shoes: Sota Guile legs w/ heavy sculpting for pant legs, shoes from LCBH Savage Dragon, cut and sculpted
Knife: Vampire Saviour Bulletta (sanded down to a point)
The sculpt job had to be done over the course of 2 days since I did it in layers in order to really sell the effect and look of actual pants, and the fore-arms needed to be made since his arms weren't long enough when taking off the stock Guile hands. I did a 2-tone blue for the pants and took a lot of time to go over the small details, especially in the belt area. I scrapped the old version of Cody I made after I finished this one (back into the parts bin!) and will be doing the same soon for Haggar. I really hope you all like him; Cody is one of my faves along with Dudley (totally awesome to play as them in SSF4!!!) and I really wanted to do him justice. Let me know what you think of V.2!
Until next time,
