    Yup doji is just about done and off to Luke for the royal treatment !

    And to breath a little more like into the new Doji and his new masks, I created a new head... Well two heads to be exact .. This was a working photo it's more fitted and detailed now.

    On top of that, there is a 2-headed sculpt for our old but new buddy Doji





    I have no idea how Rich is planning to release these, but I hope it includes both heads like how Devils Head does with Alakava. I feel like you get 2 toys for the price of 1, which is great especially as MVH only grows in popularity and gets more difficult to score.

    Hmmm, not hard to tell where the inspiration for this one came from ;)

    Before all the hoopla begins, yes one head is inspired by BEMON 2 head. My entire brand is Influened by BEMON, he's always been my favorite for almost 10 years now.

    Bemon? I was thinking more of this:

    The neck part looks the same, and the heads have a pretty close resemblance too.
    Your version looks also very cool, though.

    Shit didn't realize that. Well looks like I'm gonna have to make some changes.

    No biggie looks like I'm gonna have to do some mods.

    You can only make a neck part so many ways, is a neck after all. But that nose yeah that was a coincidence. The rest I don't think looks the same. The two horned head is a bit of the engineer from Prometheus and some 2 headed BEMON. The other head is a cousin of the cylops scorpion I'm doing now.

    I think besides from looks. Using this method for the two headed aproach works well just for design reasons. You get the neck swivel but you also get the two heads being articulated as well. So the playability gets upped and who knows the neck piece might even fit on a dx body? But I guess we will have to wait and see.

    The first thing the i thought of when i saw this was the left head looked simialr to the bgt head you were originally working on with izumonster

    It is, if you look over its shoulder the head is there. I used it for inspiration.

    But looks like I'll just change it up

    I'm kinda weirded out by how close one of those face looks without me knowing. Very weird. I had originally sculpted the same nose and neck collar as the big cyclops head, but said nah I don't want a mini so maybe a nose like the death head will be cool. Maybe it's all in the same vein , maybe subconscious, and we're all kinda close in design I don't knew.

    I'm still working on the horns and neck for fitting and texture so I'm glad it was caught now, good eyes guys.

    Yeah the two face is off the same time this guy goes out.

    It's incredible what we can store subconsciously in the back of our mind. Happens a lot with art and the zeitgeist. Or, if you believe in it, chalk it up to collective consciousness.

    I think the heads look cool, albeit maybe a little big. They're unmistakably yours, despite the similarities to Uzumark.

    Ugh I second this. I've made designs before thinking I came up with something really cool and original, only to find the "source material" and realizing I based it off of that subconsciously.
    I think it happens somewhat to all of us. Don't sweat it, Rich.

    Did some changes and you know what in the end I much prefer the original design of the nose. I added more details like I planned and more that still needs to be added .


    Maybe I'll make another head but I'm not changing this, I'll just have to take the comparisons o well.

    I've still gonna clean up the neck and bring texture through out. Than these guys are done.

    This looks great Rich. Call me crazy but I don't see much of a similarity beyond the left nose and the two head thing.

    I am happy you decided to keep the original nose design. The overall results as a whole looks amazing and personally stands out differently than Uzumark's version. You have a home run with this sculpt!

    I think at the end of the day you should do what makes you happy. Its pretty clear you weren't referencing any of the existing sculpts. Do your thing!

    It's cool to see all the interchangeability of the parts and how a body can serve multiple purposes... Imagine a different set of arms that could be mixed together with the existing Doji arms.. Maybe the Doji body is around the same size as the other standard figures? So many options!!

    I wouldn't worry, uzumark is probably done with their figure. They tend to do 1 or 2 releases and then it disappears. If they did do another run it would probably be like 15 figures and then they would retire it. I think there is plenty of difference especially with the body.

    The second head is definitely my favorite, I don't know why but there seems to be a certain kind of twisted sorrowful look on his face. Maybe not 100% sure why he exists in such a wretched 2-headed form, sharing one body with his bro. Intended or not, I love it.
