So heeeeres Kane!!! D: I love masks. I love the ninja look mix with a bit a military look like a cross of MGS and MK. For years I've been working on a design for the main ''bad guy'' but my choice of color was red and black. This brings back my old pic [link]
Finally I think I found something I like and something I actually took time on my own to make the design of a suit xD It's hard damnit!

So Kane is actually the Leader of the NAKA clan which includes: Nightmare (gona change the name) and Sid. They believe in a prophecy that the dragon king (Kane) has return in another body by spirit and has come back to awaken the army in the lost city of Megetto and make war against the ancient guardians (flash back Izic) to restore order to the clan . Nightmare and Sid are suppose to be like second in command to the king.
The story goes pretty deep and I just wana give just a peak of it so you know at least what he has to do in the story.

Anyway I used the Man on Fire soundtrack to add a bit of tone to the character. Remember he is smart, evil and very aggressive.

A badass ninja with modern equip, what else could you want in a picture? (yeah, robots).

Seriously now, this is one of those pics you see in your devwatch page that you want to open without even knowing what it is about. I was kinda unfamiliar with this character, but you described him well, not to mention the background music that adds to the whole pack.

Art-wise, I must point out the way you used shadows and lightning. As we can see in his mask, there are some bold lines that define the dark areas, but they are somewhat blurred. With that, not only you give the mask that... artificial look, but it also makes the whole picture look smooth witout looking silly (you know what I mean, gaussian blur and all those other effects).

The stylized armor reminds me of Samurai Jack, not because of the theme, but the use of single straight lines to define different elements, giving complexity to a simple lineart. The choice of colors is good too, I just think that his arms and neck are a bit exposed (specially the neck, since we're talking about ninjas).

On the downside, I'd point out the background. The tv-screen effect is a little overused in this one, and the choice of typography for his name and your gallery's URL could be a little better. I'd suggest working out simple background that refer to the character a little more, so we could get further into the description of your awesome characters! :)
