Pack Loren Concept art by Natiq Jali

First concept done by New York artist, Natiq Jalil. My first impression is BAM!!! Love it. But I was always hype on Natiqs work so I wasn't surprised. Here the hair isn't the "box" fade that I was using but it's sharp! Thinking about letting that stay! The Visor is too streamlined. It shouldn't conform to fit his face...it should be more like a welders mask. The RED eyes were Natiqs idea. He really employs color well and Pack does need it. But maybe blood red eyes are too much?

Still working his "look". The sabre is gone, and I trashed the tights! I'm not happy with the blade...it needs to be wider...

Trying to get the FEEL of Pack Loren down. Trying to show a more reserved collar and still the over-sized visor

...and I'm the brotha with the high top fade! The more ex-military look for Loren.

There's too much personality in the eyes here. Although they do look a bit...alien and that is HOT! Thinking of a new character now...

Beginning work on my cover design for King's Bounty, my first Dark Universe novel. The "visor" is not where I want it yet...

Close up of the new eyes. Still the hint of pupils but now we're away from the "Batman" look.

Very early character work for Pack Loren. Back when I envisioned him as a "Jedi Hunter"...note the lightsaber on his hip!

Local Philly tattoo artist CHeetah got down on this! Most people narrow the visor and add a point to it. But it loses its "utilitarian" feel. It's not supposed to be dynamic. Also the eyes look like VENTS in the visor. They're supposed to be holographic and lit up. Here his hair is too...what's the word? The ear piece is a nice touch.
