Not something I've ever tried, and interesting to see. I love the glasses and earpiece, they make us imagine what's going on behind. Plus the red against the greys. That's clever styling. But I wonder why he wore that scabbard on the back of his neck, it spoils the lines, drags my eye away from his face, I really want to clone it out! Particularly in V2 where it is proportionally more important.

Mean and moody, Trev, but the ear piece does look a bit incongruous. I think I'd prefer the whole sword to be in view, just needs to straighten it slightly but a well exposed and captured image.

Moira.... the scabbard/sword on his back keeps it out of the way when not in use, not dangling around his legs and tripping him up, in the normal position.

No messing with this guy, methinks........looks like a samurai sword peeping up from behind.
Looks to me to be a fine capture of the model, Trev, but I am no authority on this genre (or any other really, come to think of it).
Guess others will be a position to offer a more constructive comment, if such be needed.

Much as I dislike studio stuff (hate anything contrived) I have to acknowledge that these two are very well captured and processed and so well worth a vote. I don't care for the scabbard much either but I guess it was part of the contrivance to refer it to Blade.
