Afro (Final) - Afro Samurai



Photos

 


Information

Well, I did Afro Samurai again but really did the character justice this time in my opinion! This time I had a better headband (Afro Samurai merchandise) and had time to get a wig.

I opted for some martial arts trousers and just cut them to appear like hakama to save me constantly adjusting them after wearing them ages.

The sword was a bokken which I had sprayed chrome for the blade and red for the sheath. It looked quite intimidating, so had to hide it in transit. I was going to change the colour of the handle and guard, but ran out of time.

You definitely did the character justice. And as I said on the Expo Forums, you had drawing that sword down to a fine art...
