Enter Vykos, the veteran

The last member of our unique trio fo main characters is finally revealed! His name is Vykos and he is the brain and the experience of the squad. After he was dramatically injured in a mission, Vykos needed robotic surgery to survive, so he became a cyborg.

Because of the operation he lost most of his strength but he still preserves his intellect. He is a great support for the group and is capable of creating healing fields, shields and also knows how to set traps.

He always has a plan!

Also, you can se how he looked before this stage after the jump 😀

For Vykos we wanted to express a few key words in its design. In this case, these were: mental profile, cyborg, old soldier/war veteran and support abilities.

One of the first designs for Vykos!

In the firts designs we tended to design him with just one of these words in mind and then juggle with the others to make them fit. This gave us good results for other types of characters but not for the Vykos we wanted to create.

While the left one seems really smart, the one on the right is getting ready to shoot!

Finally we started from scratch and looked at everything that we kept in all the designs. This was a key moment because we discovered we had almost everything we needed, just, we weren’t able to make a composition with the righ posture and proportions. And after this, the actual design was born. What do you think? You like it? Please let us know your opinions 🙂

We decided it ws time to have some more fun designing this character and we came up with this one.

He seems like he's leading the charge!

The hat and the sunglasses were considered for the actual design, but were discarded in the end.
