Damien looks, in my opinion, a lot like how Fox Mask Man would. Anyway, very interesting piece!

I love this piece, but the poses and somehow the outfits for the two characters on the left are
inspired from the RE6 characters Helena & Leon. Anyways good job the designs and colors are solid.

These characters looks pretty epic! My absolute favorites are Alex and Damien^w^ Although, if I hadn't read the description, I would have thought Damien was Death the Kid(albeit without the white marks)

Alex's is the main protagonist in my story, while Damien is one of the main antagonists too. Had to make them differ in style - including in weapons too.

Well if you know a little bit about firearms (I'm a bit of a gun nut myself despite never firing a real gun before), you'll notice the different in their fighting style as well just by the guns they're using.

Care to take a guess at what their style is?

:iconlightthechao:
LighttheChao Featured By Owner May 31, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Haha, I'm actually not one(ironically enough since I adore using them in video games)

But, if I can determine it from the games I've played, I think that Damian(he's the one with the red hair, right?) is using a pistol(or maybe even a makarov). The mere use of that type of gun allows for a more mid-range type of fighting style. It isn't quite as strong as a shotgun, but it stills packs a punch if a person can head a headshot. Anyway, this type of gun is mostly used for close quarters combat, and can be associated with the use of a knife as well. Just in case. However, it is also a defensive gun, if used in that way. This is mostly why it is used for quick draws from the Wild West, but also for "murder weapons" since they can also use a suppressor in case of the need to use it in sneaking missions of sorts.

Alex(the one who has the dark hair?) uses what appears to be a handgun. I'm not quite sure since I do not use guns, but it both his and Damian's guns kind of look similar to each other. I'm probably wrong, but it can be used as more of an offensive shooting style. The way it loads its rounds are probably much more easier than Damian's gun, leaving less room open for an attack from the opposing side. I would suppose it can be used to knock someone off guard, and it can be used effectively in a way that is from its automatic interface.

Uh....If you can understand what I mean exactly, you might then see that I'm not gun expert whatsoever^^ I mostly pulled this out of my butt, but I knew some of it that I learned from Metal Gear Solid 3

Well you were half right on some of the information you gave, but here's the information I wished to give.

Alex's firearm is a Smith & Wesson M1911, which uses the .45 ACP round. The gun has a bit of recoil but can be handled with training, and has a small 7+1 magazine capacity. The .45 was designed to knock down targets with ease - which goes along with Alex's fighting style as well. He prefers to hurt, injure or wound - but not to kill. That's what the .45 is for, to knock down attackers without having to kill them.

Damien on the other hand is using the Belgium made Fabrique Nationale (FN) Five SeveN. It has a much large magazine capacity 20+1, and uses the special 5.7x28mm round. Which is pretty much a smaller version of an assault rifle round. Unlike Alex who prefers to disable or injure his targets - Damien is all about overkill. A lightweight firearm with a large magazine capacity, armor piercing bullets and little to no recoil.

Hmm...Well, I certainly loved that interesting gun lesson^w^ If anyone ever asks in the future, I'll use this just in case. Ha, but I'm surprised I was actually quite close, even though it was only half way^^
