The camo would make the character look more like a soldier-fighter, and with those soldier boots. And ofcourse h2h fighting and knives... Mmm... :) I personally dream of drawing such a thing, but I lack time and talent. Also, if the bandana would be changed for some sunglasses ( but that could make him look too much like a "be cool" stereotype of a soldier, and we dont want that :P) or just normaln black eyes. Personally, I think the dragon tattoo spoils the look of this guy. It could be cool if he had like a small tattoo on his breast, or better yet an wolf head on the back of his head. In my opinion he should more look like a strict, well trained fighter that kills when needed, but likes woods, wolves (especially)and women :P

Camo? Very interesting! That would have added a whole different dimension to the character! The red was more or less a send-up to Daredevil (I think the game's creators ended up using yellow) but I really like the camo idea.

He looks great. I colored him with my pencils with actually 3 colors only, warm grey, darkgray, and tan :) I could show you it if you want. I find him to suit best my imagination of a peacefull and a brave monk, using his devotion and hard work to accomplish perfection. The one thing I don't like with monks is celibate, but that's another story ;) Great work, again.

Thanks! I actually never really thought about what he would look like under the mask. I never got the story on why he's blind, so I don't know if he's disfigured or what.

Cool, I would like to see him without the bandana on his eyes. It's one of the coolest characters I've ever seen. I like monks very much :)

It's actually a character I designed for :iconeviljester1214:'s video game (he went to school for game design, and had to make a game for his final project).

Is this a cartoon character or have you made him up? I like the Sketch, I got some color pencils and put some color on it :)

"Shooped" is silly slang for "Photoshopped." It's used to describe an image that has another image superimposed onto it. In this case, I found a dragon on the internet and "shooped" it onto his arm :)

Yup. I just changed his pants color (to throw a little nod to Daredevil :D) and found a spiffy tatt (cuz I didn't feel like drawing one), but other than that, he's pretty much the same.

Great colouring dude. I'm not so keen on the split-toe. It looks too pointy, like he's got pincer-feet! Tattoo looks fantastic.
