This is a commission I did a few years back of a character called 'Panzer' I believe (sorry, my 'name' memory sucks!!!)... ALTHOUGH, needless to say this was FUN as hell to draw... the character's features were quite cartoony to begin with, and I LOVE how ridiculously big his tech-arm is (and I mean that as the BIGGEST compliment!!!)
...it is my firm belief that when designing, 'subtlety' most of the times is a waste of time... why? 'cause subtlety doesn't really 'read' visually-speaking... for me, design is FIRST and foremost, about creating interesting silhouettes, and second, coming up with memorable details, AND this character, had plenty of both to play with!
...once gain, a canson gray paper piece with copic markers and white pencil with a bit of Photoshopin' for pop'!
