Better late then never. I'll start the body and show complete concept......I literally want a samurai. No gimmicks.
And the PhotoChop version.

And yet you put what I only can guess is sunglasses on him? Should be an intresting model.

Trying to see if I can make the head concept a bit more dynamic.

Nose, I dunno what you intended, but every version of this guy looks like 'techno bondage samurai' to me.
I think what we have here is a new character for 'Death Race 2000', THE SHOGUN!!! He needs a hopped-up rice rocket with katana blades all over it, and he's ready to deal death on the roadway...
PhotoCHOP, indeed! KOOL!

I'm basing my concept on the Mask Wearing Armor of the Samurai.....if I can't manage a molded metal type face mask, then yeah...."DEATH RACE 2000....GUNGADHIN SHOGUN!"

Ok. Just a question I have about samurai armor that maybe you might know the answer to.
the shoulder armor is attatched at the top, I see. Is the bottom secured at all? does it just flop around? It doesn't look like the bottom is tied down, around the arm.

This is probably the best reference I've seen. Basically, everything is tied down. Usually the back of the limbs are exposed and the armpits.

It depends on the type of armor, though. The o-yoroi there was the classic style used in the early fuedal perion - it wasn't very mobile when on foot, but this was fine as samurai of that period were more mounted archery units than anything else. By the later fuedal periods, that style of armor was largely out of fashion, with lighter and more mobile armor that better suited hand-to-hand combat. Google for 'domaru' or 'haramaki' and you'll get examples of armor with more flexible leg skirts than the yoroi styles. Most samurai you'd see in film wear variants of haramaki, as most of the samurai stories that get made into film are from later eras.
