Bardock SSJ4 by hsvhrt Bardock SSJ4 by hsvhrt
So a few people have asked when I was going to make this one, and it had always been my plain anyway to complete all forms of Bardock. It the first character that I have completed the set, from base to SSJ4.

Bardock is always a lot of fun to make. This one is a little more difficult to make then some of the other forms of him. Not just making the SSJ4 fur and hair but the over all image being on the angle and the stance it self. Over time it's getting a little easier to make the SSJ4 fur, like anything if you do thing over and over again it easier to do. The hair I wonted to be a little more different just a little bit to Goku's SSJ4 hairstyle. Stayed clear of the Budokai Tenkaichi 2 hairstyle of Goku's which has been used about 25000 times already. The shadowing is a little more basic like the Budokai Tenkaichi 3 hairstyle which a lot of people may not know of because most of it is missing due to having writing over it . Also similar showing compared most other pics of Goku's SSJ4 hair, including the anime. Also stayed away from Goku's SSJ4 skin tone and went with a darker tone, similar to Bardock's base form tone. The fur is darker then Goku's too, though that may not to as obvious, Goku's a little pinker and then Vegeta's is even pinker again. Finally I'm not sure he would have his pads/ part of his armor around his hips. More likely he would not, but I felt after loosing such an iconic part of his appearance and that's his armor I felt it was needed to keep him as Bardock like as possible.

Bit Harsh, given he would not have the green pads still around his waist but it would look less like Bardock and more like Goku. Doesn't help that they have the same hair and the fact all SSJ4s have no tops on. So I was trying to keep as much of Bardock's unique features as possible.
