Amazing. Simply amazing. Fresh blood on the swords I see. I gotta wonder who did the three take down before they decided to pose.

Hahaha. I don't know but I feel bad for whoever it was :P
My guess is Yaiba Kamikaze from the upcoming Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z,a spinoff game from the Ninja Gaiden series coming out tomorrow. The idiot thought he could match up to the super ninja and almost died. Not only is he a gigantic asshole for killing off his own clan of ninjas but the game tries way too hard to be cool,edgy, and funny.

At least with Metal Gear Rising Raiden wasn't a complete asshole and didn't need to incorporate excessive swearing and other silliness.

Hell would couldn't Team Ninja come up with a spinoff Ninja Gaiden game featuring Kasumi,Ayane,Momiji and Rachel. Now that there is a game I would really love to play.

This stuff is awesome. I want someone to help me do this as well. Only I have my own character faces, to me the game ones are boring. I also want to make them fight on youtube, not just pictures. I see that you can go right inside the game.

Here is my email. we can chat offline.


We can bring fan fair to another level. Check out my stuff. I can share them with you since I created them myself. Maybe you can enter them in your arena as well.

Oh I'm really sorry for the confusion but this isn't from in game. It's a 2D background that I used 3D software to put the DOA characters in to. A lot of people seem to use Source Film maker for that kind of stuff but I don't really do animations sorry. I never have enough spare time. Thanks for dropping by my page though :)

Awesome looking pic. This could pass as coverart for any DOA game (especially DOA5U could use a good one).
Really nice job.
