Here's a redesign of my character Hard Knock (formerly Hard 'Nock. Don't ask) who was made around 1990 or so. His outfit has slowly changed from a standard superhero outfit to these street clothes. I'm not happy with the arms (had to digitally fix the right one) but I'm cool with the rest of it. The vest does double duty of bringing the design closer to the old suit and making him look a bit more like the brawler archetype that he was subconsciously based on. I kept the color saturation low (for once) on the outfit to match the character's grit. My favorite part of this one is the aging on the pipe.
