Here it is, the new ExOS Ben! This is a big one for me, because, fun fact, when I made the original? Nothing about the ExOS Story had been written! So, almost a year after I made the Era 1 Ben design, and have written a good part of the plot, I've made a Ben more fitting of the tone of the series. It's also just better from an art standpoint.

As for other interesting facts, the jacket was a late addition, I was out at the store once a few weeks back, and I saw a jacket that looked almost just like this, and I felt it suited Ben pretty well. 

Feel like shooting me a bit of money? Perhaps you want to pay me for a commission?www.paypal.me/projectcarthage

I hope that your version is more humble and less of a selfish, arrogant, and immature douche bag.

For me, in my opinion would prefer the AF version of him.

Vilgax murders his parents. That's why Ben ripped Vilgax into pieces

that's not true Vilgax hurt grandpa max in a fight causing grandpa max to loose his arm and that's when ben lost it and pretty much killed vilgax. However, we don't know exactly what happened. this is wat is implied in the ben 10,000 episode. As for his parents, we have no idea what happened to them.

 silhouette of Vilgax towering over Ben on his hands and knees, with two bodies to either side: An adult male and adult female.]

[Suddenly, it snaps to Ben, with an anguished expression. A green flash consumes the scene, as it cuts to a large alien figure tearing Vilgax apart. This scene then zooms out to reveal Ben’s eyes in the present day, snapping out of his flashback and noticing he’s about to run his bike into a bush.]

Also Ben's parents is nowhere in the first 4 episodes of ExOS. As this is a continuation of Goodbye and Good Riddance, wouldn't he be living with his parents other then his Grandpa?
Also I believe Carth confirmed this on Discord once. So yes, the reason of Ben being cold and serious is because his parents died.
 P.s I don't know why this dark text is here

Nice work. I've been following the progress for a while now and, yeah, I can definitely see the improvement and it just looks good as a final design.

Nice idea the omniverse growing with him but his face still looks a little childish

He's only 16, he's not gonna have the exact same face as Ben 10,000 at Age 16.

I though he was 14-15, that is more older that he looks, maybe more used to UAF design, still Nice design with Omnitrix

I kinda agree with you. The nose makes him look more childish. Even UAF gave his a small like nose to make him look younger

It make it a profile, the nose did looks a little akward too...i think are the eyes, UAF era give ben eyes helped looks older. Maybe the male tennyson are late bloomer anyway, Still this looks very childsh too, like 13 that 16-17
