Samurai Bust "The dark warrior"

When I think Japan, I think Samurai. Their appearance has always intrigued me and their way of life was something to behold in itself. When I found this figure/bust, I just knew I had to give my figure modelling another go. With all the different clans and their armour colours, it was hard to decide on what to go with. I knew it had to include some dark colours, preferably black and red. With a few small alterations to the standard model, I think I’ve come up with something unusual and interesting.
