Looks very well blended !
Thanks mate, it was very hard to make this one from different photos, i was about to get an headache ! So i am glad that it blends well
Unfortunatly post 620 doesnt show any pic in the spolier for me. Could you check it please cedric?
No its not the the format . I can see it now too.
Seems like it was temporary prob with hoster or on my side.
Its great cedric, its in with the rest of the pic as if always there and actually more samurai-/sengoku-style than before.
Only the "upper-arm-protection" doesnt look totally right. Could you find a way to let it "hang" - I believe these were mostly fixed at the upper end only - and/or altering/removing the cord with has an "unnatural" position itself?
Well i was also doubting on the position of the right shoulder protection, it is not easy since i made it without any model. I will try to fix it a bit. Is the rest okay ?
EDIT: just checked the fixation and it is fixed directly on the arm, so it does not hang, but follow the arm
Those added protections were somehwat "loose"/"mobil" I think.
The design of the armour looks pretty fine to me - unfortunatly I´m no expert on japanese armour and cant really tell differences between muromachi, sengoku or edo periods.
What I like also it that the ?pattern? "at the neck" is gone. Although it looked fine it was somewhat distracting - now its more focussed on that great, grim face expression.
Well i have remade the neck protection a bit, i think it looks better now:
Sure, only the previous armor was copyrighted (and now i prefer the new one, which looks more real - because it is a real armor).
Hm, so I was wrong on that. Still the band/cord is threatening perfectionEDIT: just checked the fixation and it is fixed directly on the arm, so it does not hang, but follow the arm
Maybe ad another cord that would visuable fix to that position, if changing/removing is to much cost?
What about the background from 'The Last Samurai'?
Latest version ! (remade the head again, and changed the shoulder protection):
EDIT: changed background again + head again
EDIT2: made the character older (he is the shogun, so basically an oldie )
I know the winner!
Wrath of the Norsemen Researcher and Historian and Second Age Total War 2D Helper
Hehe and who is he ? I don't know him
Well i get a funny remark on this contest: it seems there is no limit to the number of entries you can submit. So one guy already submitted 5-6 !! If he continue to spam the submission thread he will get 5 pages of subs for him alone.
Completly different picture now, but an absolutly great one.
Fine job on the cord (much more natural now), well choosen background, the aging does good with the other changings (more "peacefull, less action" backgriound).
Only I miss the "grim face" a bit - maybe readd one scar?
A tiny bit too much green/cyan in the lower parts of face?
