Of particular note with this update of him is new legs, which are more sleek so as to fit in with his ‘lithe’ design. They also feature thigh sheaths for his daggers. Also of note is new weapons, including the sword, which while simple also fits in with his somewhat spiky vibe, and a blaster/gun. Mind you, this is the first time I’ve attempted a Blaster/gun style weapon so I went with something simple but decent looking.
Aside from those changes there were some other minor ones. I fixed some gaps in his design, notably with the ‘ordeal of fire’ piece on his back, which uses a somewhat illegal/forced connection to be flushed with the rest of the back instead of sticking out awkwardly. I changed his arm pieces a bit to give them more mobility/articulation. Some ‘filler’ pieces were added to the upper arms, and last but not least to go with the thigh sheaths, all his weapons can be stored on him in some manner.
Also for those who are curious about backstory, which I don’t think I ever properly made for him, Valen is basically a Bounty Hunter in the MU. He is efficient enough in his job that his lack of powers in an otherwise overpowered universe is overlooked.
It is a simple background but one that works for this character.
