On the heels of the Riot one we have the same efforts with Kongou. Overall our goals are to push the designs and bring the characters a little further into the modern fantasy aesthetic inspired by games like Blazblue and Guilty Gear (especially the Xrd update.) while still keeping our western influence intact. Kongou has long eluded me in terms of finding an outfit that really fits him and some of that is simply due to the evolution of his character profile and arc in the development of the world and story. Now that we're in a place of some solidity we need to really nail his final iconic look. Here we've tried a bunch of variations - some based on older versions and some with new ideas. It's let me pinpoint the ones and ideas I -don't- want for sure while also moving towards ideas I do. Unlike Riot, he's not finished, and we need to move on to others but I thought I'd share. Like Riot I started with him in his skivvies - which resulted in a hilarious image. Hello ladies! lol - but I think for our purposes here there's no need for that and costume alone is fine.
