Gein / Asher

Quick drawing of Gein, main protagonist of Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun, one of the cancelled sequels to the Legacy of Kain video game saga!

As you might know, I am a big fan of this franchise, and I was pretty amazed when gameplay footages and trailers were made available to the public eye, sooner this year (examples here and there). Honestly, even if Dead Sun would not have been directly tied to the Raziel/Kain storylines from the previous games, I really enjoyed some of the revealed aspects of the plot and overal design, and I can't help but feel... "enthusiatic" when I think about what this game would have been.

In my humble opinion, Gein's design is interesting because of its relative minimalism, dark color scheme and intriguing scarifications/war paint. In the game, he would have been able to grow this kind of "forearm blades" during battle, which is badass! Who doesn't like heroes with claws? ^^
