Yeah, haha. I don't mean to imply that you borrowed from his look. Omen's outfit is a lot more real looking, which is why I love it, the hat the cape.. kind of reminds you of a comic book character, but still seems realistic, hard to strike that cool balance in my opinion. Even if you did take inspiration, your spin on the M bison look would be considered a lot more original than well... M Bison's spin on it, that costume was taken pretty much directly from the anime Doomed Megalopolis's villain. Anywhoo, love the character!
He was cool. I wolud have liked it if he would not have dropped his cape so early (would have been a cool effect after damaging him a lot, but it was way to early in the final game in my opinion). Anyway, nice character design.
That guy is quite the badass, indeed. Love his design, his slow, professional voice, and the boss fight against him. The guy disappears without warning and actually sets up traps! And the way he took off his cloak? Badass!
Minor point: interestingly, in his original art he's wearing a red emblem on the cap, but in the game the cap has the eagle with the blue sky and white sun emblem of the Republic of China's National Police Agency. So I suppose that this was never a CSP uniform, but rather a disguise so he looks like a Taiwanese policeman?
I'm not quite sure. I went onto other things while AP was still in production and don't know why the emblem was changed. It's very common though, that the concept will be different than the final result.
