More samurai quilting
I finished the latest batch, but I wasn't ready to stop painting samurai, so I stripped the paint off this guy, repositioned the arms and katana and gave him enough paint to join the hatamoto-yakko.
The haori/jacket was added using green stuff. Since the arms are one piece, it's difficult to pin them to the torso, so the jacket serves to strengthen the joints.
I thought about the paint scheme for a few days before settling on the assymetrical quilt pattern for the jacket, and the floral pattern for the kimono and hakama. I also wanted to keep the colors stylish but not too bright; I think this fellow will fit nicely either in the gangs or as an independent ronin.
