Did up this bit of art the other night when I started seeing pics tweeted of Masterpiece Exhausts "hidden face" under the visor. My brain couldnt help but concoct a little backstory for the guy, thus giving birth to inspiration
The toy has a big screw-hole in its forehead [where the visor plugs in/screws on] and my brain saw it as a bullet-hole! On top of that Takara painted over his eyes with the same silver they painted the rest of his face so that made me think "okay, he got blasted in the head and now he's blind [thus the visor]"
AND I had to throw a cygarette in there [cuz Marlboro
This character just got a whole lot cooler to me just because of a hidden face on a toy. Now I want to see him show up in the comics or something somewhere xD
