Prototype Designer: Kamitsure Sayoko
I was aiming to create a model which fans would be able to feel the various and unique mental traits of Hyakkimaru by observing the spirit and the undying determination revealed from his expression, and the different emotions that can be seen from his back and other angles.
I was particularly careful about prosthetic arms and legs. I simulated the range of motion of the joints to make it able to move in a realistic way.
Also, you can take a look at the contrast between the prosthetic and real parts of the body which can be clearly seen in the right foot that steps firmly on the rock and the inorganic left foot laid on the same rock.
