sub-zero by YoungZer0 sub-zero by YoungZer0
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.

I LOVE your use of colours/light and darks in this pic! Perfect reflection of "cold" and "chilly". Awesome job there - also your attention to detail on the uniform is great, all the folds and buttons . . . :drool:
Nice job! :clap: :nod: :clap: :nod:
