So I was bored and decided to redesign my favorite beat 'em up duo; Sub-Zero and Scorpion.
I distanced myself from their original Ninja design and tried to make them very different from each other. I went with their most basic attributes and also took the chance to try a new style. A rather cartoony one.
I started out with Sub-Zero.
Sub-Zero is a cryomancer, cryomancer are a race of people that can control Ice. When I worked on his redesign I immediately thought about where he would live on this world. I thought about places that are known for cold temperature. Russia came to mind. He would probably wear Winter Clothes, not because of necessity but as a statement. I kind of got stuck on Russian Soviet Uniforms. But I didn't want him to look like some sort of soldier so I gave him that rather goofy looking hat.
He looks more like a contractor now. Some sort of person you'd hire to get things done.
Or some shit.
