Simon Belmont from the Castlevania series. Based the figure off his artwork for Castlevania Chronicles.

Whoa, incredible detail on the torso! I can tell the base seems to be a Star Wars torso, but are the rest of the details hand-painted? If so, that's some top-notch work!

It's a very good likeness in general though I wish you could have found a better face for him... the face in the artwork you linked has a very confident look, and not as much of a scowl as the face you chose. But on the other hand, part of that could just be that the art style allows for a lot more expressiveness than the heavily-simplified look of minifigure faces.

Thanks. :)

It is the Mola Ram torso with the flesh parts brassoed off. It was the perfect choice to use.

As for the head, yeah I probably could have used the old Luke Skywalker instead. But no turning back now. :P
