Thumbs WAY freakin' up, grey. He's sort of like Crono, Beatrix, Auron, and Sephiroth rolled into one, with your personal touch of course. THAT...is an awesome Crono.

Hell, I'm saving this.

Ooooooh, I like this very much. The face does look a little downs-y, but the overall design is... QUITE badass.

I agree with this statement. He seems a little too depressed, rather than having that badass "I don't give a damn" smirck I think you were going for. I love the eye sash thingy, and his overall samurai feel.

Great work.

Wouldn't you be depressed if your eye was gone?

Love the pic.

I think the pic makes him look older then he should be.

Thought on this a while. If he looks older than the intended age, it's because you put too many details in the expression. It's true that we get little lines in the corners of our mouths when we smile or bags under our eyes when we're tired, but adding these details too solidly on a "cartoonish" face makes them look like wrinkles and makes young characters look old. Kinda like Triana on Venture Bros. It's tough to get it just right!

After looking at the face a bit longer, I think the major problem is that the bottom of his eyes are almost aligned with his nostrils. Lowering the position of the nose and mouth should help, I think.

probably. I don't even really have a color scheme setup for him either.
anybody wanna take a whack at that?

It may be over done to death, but I've always loved white. White with black trim, and of course his bandana has to remain red. Pants can either be black, or another non-white color. What color were they in CT, red or blue?

They were tan in CT, but tan wouldn't go well with white. Maybe a dark navy blue would look nice?

Eh, probably too overdone to look good. Your call of course.
