The classic yell of victory from japanese voice announcer from what I consider SNK best fighting game Samurai Shodown
Hi everyone, just having 10 days before ninja contest deadline.I quickly went into my fodder bin & gather whatever I can find for my next contest entry to create mysterious Samurai Shodown 4 ninja Hattori Hanzo in his red/black attire & gold armor. I started with ML Ninja Wolverine torso for its butterfly articulation.Then I removed the arms for ML Ironfist double jointed upper arms & attached sota Ryu forearms to it for a little length because when I sculpt Hanzo wide shoulder armor later on the arm length is needed to hold his sword behind his back.Hands are from (Right)Wolverine &(Left) Gambit.Next I combined the torso to Mcfarlane Onimusha Oda Nobunaga great articulated legs & added LCBH Ripclaw feet because the sculpt is perfect for this custom,then modified the armor to artwork design.
For Hanzo head I used ML Hand ninja..resculpted the side of hood to add the ninja crown he wears under it.Sculpted sandals & armor on shoulders & forearms.I was planning to sculpt his Gi but instead took a Neca Akuma Gi & tailored it smaller to fit onto his torso.Then added ninja fishnets to arms.Repainted katana is from fodder, Shurikens is from Nickelodeon tmnt foot soldier & red wire ribbon was used for his scarf.Painted him up in faded black,gold,red with a touch of midnight blue & high gloss his shoulder armor.
I am satisfied how Hattori Hanzo came out because he is able to do some the actual poses from the game. Hopefully you enjoy this entry of one of the coolest looking game ninjas created.
Hope you like
Thanks for watching
