Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

I’m a marvelous fan of Samurai cinema, and that being true, Hiroyuki Sanada is one of my favorite actors. This model is inspired by his later movies like Tasogare Seibei, Last Samurai, and Vengeance for Sale. I spent quite a long time trying to find a suitable hakama for him to wear, and eventually found Portakal’s beautiful mesh to play with. (Sanada at the IMDb)

Thanks for the comments everyone. This being my first upload, I was a little nervous. I'm glad to find other Sanada fans.

What a fantastic looking Sim! He looks great. (Also, totally one of my favourite actors too. I never thought I'd see someone make a Sim for him.)

He has such striking and masculine features, I'm really impressed that you were able to so faithfully replicate his face for the Sims! I can't even imagine the amount of work it must have taken.

I don't know him, but he seems like the kind of guy I need in my game. What an interesting face. Thank you!

Beautiful work. I loved the movie the last samurai. He was one of the best characters in the movie. It would be awesome if you did one of Shin Koyamada. Totally gorgeous.

I noticed that there seems to be something wrong with the animation. The right arm is rigid - this shows up when he shakes hands. The other sim bends the arm normally, but Hiroyuki has a stiff arm.

Imagine a world without hypothetical situations

I keep on getting a funny error that I do not have the right expansion pack. But I have up to Bon Voyage. Do I need to reinstall him with just the base game? I'd really like him for a story line I've got going on. =/

This is just FABULOUS! I love him as an actor and you have recreated him so well in Sim form. The attention to detail in his face is *stunning* And the hair!...Excellent work.
