Haohmaru is my favorite charakter... Nice job here...I would describe it as "edgy".

His expression is so.. sleazy. What has he been doing, to be looking like that? Very effective style on his hair though, and your shading is especially good on the tree.

WOW!!!!!! WOW!!!! WOW!!!! :jawdrop:

Let me first say that I'm completely bias on Haohmaru, a character that really got me interisted into reading about Japanese history. Since I'm a very scruffy looking character, so it's something I could relate with, and at the time when Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat were eating up the arcades Samurai Showdown really did a better job then those two at depicting a Hard core violent fighting game. You drew a character close to my heart...... Kinda wish you animated the intro to SS1, becuase it kinda looks like your about to seting it up he's gonna slice up the tree.

wow! thanks man, means alot to me.
i was actually playing SS4 (they are all good but) and its just so atmospheric and cinematic. Just Awesomeness at its most...uh...awesome. I was inspired :). one of the best fighting games (and characters) ever.

By the way, were you able to find a working copy of SS5? it's been out for over like 8 months, I can't seem to get a copy of it to work anywhere online.

Goddamn Haohmaru is a bad ass. I love how the only color you used is red. It really gives the piece a different feeling. I also like how it looks like you went crazy while doing his hair, but it still looks like Haohmaru's hair. Damn awesome.
