So, as the year draws closer to conclusion, I give you some WIP sketches for my new, yet unnamed IP (the literary part of which Im planning to start writing ASAP). Mostly it's brainstorming and design streamlining of the two main characters that are now are simply the Operator and the Merc.
Lots of these were grawn on my Galaxy Note, and having obtained the new version of this tablet, I'm planning to devote more time on sketching on the go - showcasing more styles and so on as I do.

Please do look at the full version and comments and crit, as always, welcome. It's a whole new direction I'm going in now, so feedback would be nice.

Huh... This is definitely interesting. Looks a bit like Deus Ex :D

Honestly the only real things I can pick out that look a bit odd is the guy's anatomy on the fully coloured picture. He looks a bit... Waistless, I guess would be the right term. I understand the knives are in the way, but it still doesn't look quite 100%. The sketch of the upper body on the left nails it though xD
What does he operate, if that ainīt spoilers?
Woo wooo! Cyberpunk plus neon lights= win. I dig your color schemes, so bright that it really stands out. Also, the fact that you're making more variants of head shapes really help differentiate the characters.

Which one's the operator and the merc?

Dead Space unfluences on that armor, am i right?
Plus, the guy on the coloured pic looks a bit like Nicolas Cage to me, but don't ask why, I don't know

More Deus Ex than Deadspace)

Yeah, its at that point where I just drew a random face
Seeing more of it, the understructure, the idea behind the design helps one appreciate the armor a lot more!

Up to the left, is that a flying disc leaving his back?
Low-center, to the left of teh operator with side head armor (which is great BTW), is that a head with 7 electronic eyes?
