"How to sculpt Samurai armor"
Step 1: Punch yourself in the face for wanting to sculpt samurai armor.

Began working on this guy the same time I started the turtles. Really wanted him to have an intense fuedal look with more of a realistic rabbit head. I saw a sculpture of a frightened rabbit with long ears that were pulled back. That's what inspired me to create his "down" ears look. Took my time to get as much detail as I could. I do think I could have added tons more though. Maybe with the next one ;)

Thanks for looking guys & gals.

This is awe inspiring! I love the realistic take and the articulation you manage to keep in these. The sculpted from scratch everything is UNREAL! This could be CUSTOM OF THE YEAR as well!

Not only is this figure beautifully made, it has that highly rare collectible feel to it. The head sculpt is phenomenal, great choice of paints, and excellent steady hands!

Sir, you just took my favorite TMNT character to a whole new level of awesomeness!!

Beautiful alernate take on Sakai's most famous creation. The downturned ears are definitely a novel look for the character, and I dig the intricate armor.
Jarred706 - Thursday, June 7, 2012
That is just some hoppin' good work (Lame puns away!), seriously though this is fantastic.
ringomendoza - Thursday, June 7, 2012
beautiful piece of art
Spensieri - Thursday, June 7, 2012
That is really amazing. I love the realistic rabbit head sculpt. Very nice work!
claytonemery - Thursday, June 7, 2012
Yep, better to take a hammer and smash your fingers before starting a project as detailed as this. Beautiful work though. The purple colors are glass-smooth and stunning.
blaynescott - Thursday, June 7, 2012
Excellent sculpting job. Looks like super-sculpy? I'm curious how you managed to attach the leg-armor and still have it articulated. There's a few workarounds, and I'm always curious how people approach that (or if they've invented a new way). Awesome job all around.
G Brand - Thursday, June 7, 2012
Thanks Blayne. Regarding the armor on his shoulders, thighs and skirting; the base structure was formed with super-sculpey and detailed with aves. I attached the skirt armor using thin strips cut from a rubber glove, which allows it to be stretchy and durable.
AREZ - Thursday, June 7, 2012
WOW... This is another MASTER PIECE!!!
Wallcrawler Customs - Thursday, June 7, 2012

Darththomas - Thursday, June 7, 2012
