Ninja Concept: Master Hiroshi by DRa90NBoi Ninja Concept: Master Hiroshi by DRa90NBoi
This is a tribute to all those old people out there, heheh. To the aging, physical appearance does not matter and attaining infinite wisdom is but one of the greatest assets you hold. I know, all of us young people will surely grow old and wrinkly too, but until then, let's just allow your old-people wisdom wash over us, whether we grasp the concept or not. Power to the old people, heheh.

Yea, this is gonna be me in the future, heheh. What I tried to focus on most in this drawing was the face and hands, but I dunno if I've gotten any better at it. I tried to make this character look really pimp (not like a pimp, heheh, but just cool). The influences for this image came from the various Vietnamese-dubbed Hong Kong soap operas my mom used to watch way back when, and those old masters in the kung fu films, like that martial arts master in 'Kill Bill,' heheh.

Every game needs an old, wise person to guide them. I mean what would the 'Tenchu' series be without Master Azuma Shiunsai? And the new 'Ninja Gaiden' without the shopkeeper Muramasa? Also, 'Star Wars' without Yoda, heheh. So I think an aged character with boundless expertise should fit right into this game.

If you're interested, take a look at my 'Ninja Concept: Characters' in my scrap section to see the original designs that I had made before.

Master Hiroshi

Bo Staff

Element Specialty:

Background Info:
A former travelling monk, the man recently known as Master Hiroshi, had decided to settle down and reside in a small village in Japan. On his travels, he would learn various forms of martial arts, and one he took quite profoundly was the ninjutsu arts. He created his own style, blending the various martial arts forms he knew and used it to his advantage. He is quite a peaceful man, yet serious nonetheless. As he grew older, he discovered that he cannot travel like he used to and decides to settle in Japan, where he will teach those who want, and are willing, to follow his methods. He was soon very popular in a small village where he stayed and became an official teacher there. The villagers then entrusted him to live and protect a nearby Buddhist temple. The temple itself was no ordinary temple, but a library to which the many schools of the village kept important documents and ancient scrolls. And as a way of paying back the village for accepting him, he did so. Out of all his students, Ansatsu and Harumi are his top students. He meets his death during an invasion of the village by some unknown enemy.

O_O Scary half bald Hiroshi sensei... No, really, he freaks me out! But he still is kinda classical example of "someone old and wise". His hands are very well done. In fact i think they look realistic.

Great, that's what I was aimin' for: detailed hands. Thanx for the comment. I'm surprised he gives the "scary" effect, because my goal was more of a "hey, that's pimp" or "cool" kind of look. But I guess scary can qualify somehow...

Ah you've gotta make the eyebrows like in the Kill Bill II, huge! ^^
The outfit looks perfect, great job again.
