re:armor. Agreed. I see him more in a flat black cloth wrap, much like you would see a classic ninja in. That being said. Amazing art work. Excellent details. Would have been nice to see Retribution and/or the KaKari over his eyes.

this is more like something from assassins creed. mainly because this outfit has white in it and is not mottled black. And i do believe that his wetboy grays are skin tight. this looks more like a suit of armor
I've been reading this lately and was wondering if anyone had done some work about Kylar. Very nice illustration of him. The wetboy greys are pretty much how i pictured them as well. Keep up the good work!

To be honest, I looked at the art, read through the comments, and have come to this conclusion: Brent Weeks did not go into detail about armor, he -was- specific that the wetboys wore 'greys' but... I mean honestly... THIS is the way a proper kicks-others-assassins'-asses-style killer should dress. Lightweight, jointed leather, maybe a metal guard or two thrown in to protect the joints. Obscures the gender, as was intended, and the face even the facial shape. I think after as much damage as Kylar took, he might wise up in his aging time and invest in a bit of other-stuff for his romps around, ka'kari or no. I think it looks marvelous, definitely my favorite. I -adore- the setting, the colors, and especially the sky~
Meh. I'm torn. While this is the best drawn out of all the NA pictures, it isn't right. So I don't whether or not I should like it.
I mean, the weaponry is right, given that this is likely before he got the you know what from Durzo. But... it's too heavy. The grays are just suppose to be clothing, with a hood, and a tiny mask INSIDE the hood. Your depiction has too much armor and other such things.
The Design of the character is really well done, it gives a perfect image of what the wetboys would look like, anonymous, showing no emotion, but as a big fan nut of this series, I have to ask, where is the sword Retribution?
