    Thank you for the submission. Client feedback:


    The right leg needs to be brought in so he is standing straight
    The belt needs to be removed and the pants need a white waistband and Y-front details
    A plain white oval logo needs to be added to the chest

    The Head needs to be bigger and face needs to look MUCH more masculine; bigger jaw line and chin, frowning, bigger hair and thicker side burns, some facial stubble.


    Currently the eye mask looks like sun glasses - they need to be altered to look like a superhero mask

    4) Face - The face needs to be more a lot more handsome with better styled hair. It also needs to be angled with the chin up slighltly. (See 2 examples Below)

    Client Feedback:
    Thanks for a great design!
    1) CAPE - The cape outlines need to be thinner and the pants need y-front details and shape (see above in picture)
    2) BOOTS - Please - remove the boots.
    3) FACE - we need the mask to be more rounded and also I like the general style of the face but it needs to have a bit more detail/character (please see mask pics and face pics)

    Thank you very much!

    Client feedback:


    - Cape: I like the fact the cape is blowing in the wind but its currently about 45 degress from vertical - can we reduce that to about 20 degrees (so not so far to the left).
    - Pants: Can we have the y front detail to match the pictures provided above.
    - Face: The face looks a little robotic - can we give it a little more character - please see superhero face examples above.
    - Mask: Can the mask be altered to be more like the shape of the mask in the pic provided (above, where it's flatter and more rounded.)-
    - The cape must not be stripey, it can have folds, but it needs to appear that it's just 1 colour of fabric.

    More client feedback!:

    - Getting really close now! Just a few minor revisions for this design.
    - Really like the face and shape of the mask - but could the mask be a bit smaller (probably about 80% of the size it is now)
    - There seems to be a tiny bit of the suit colour overlapping the cape around the neck? Could this be removed please
    - Could you remove the stripped effect of the cape? just make it obvious that they are folds, rather than stripes.

    Thanks

    Great!

    There has been some confusion - we want to keep the cape around the neck please - but there was a bit of the suit colour that had overlapped on to it that we didnt want - please put the cape back on the neck but without the overlap from the suit colour.

    the outside of mask is the correct size but could could the 2 holes be bigger so that we can see his eyes properly - This helps show the character's personality more.

    Thank you!
