My original sketch of this drawing was a far more ninja type of character. It had the same stance as this, the end result, but somehow it just didn't do it for me. So i took a erasor and changed things around, made him more muscular, and more towards a cyberpunk feel, changed the mask from a typical ninja one to current one and added the long ponytail and 'banners' to add a feeling of movement and flight. As a final touch i made his right arm a cybernatic replacement. In the end it was completely different than i envisioned in the first place. Still for a 'just let it happen' drawing i was pleased with it.
