Vergil - Reboot Redesign by Jarein Vergil - Reboot Redesign by Jarein
EDIT: I redid the face to be clearer and more detailed. I found it best to use a 3/4ths angle for the spikier hair too.

Going back to the upcoming reboot to Devil May Cry (or DMC as the devs affectionately call it), I did a more refined version of Dante as my attempt to clean up the mess they made of his new, urban, punky look.

Now, the new gameplay footage has definitely made up for the aesthetic missteps they've taken, showing off a very impressive combat system, that's fluid, brutal, and stylish all at the same time. But does that mean the game will make old school DMC fan happy? Dunno.

Back to the matter at hand. Since I've gone back and refined the new Dante, I decided not to leave the work "half done" as it were.

So heres my interpretation of the new Vergil, using the setting Ninja Theory is placing for the new reboot. Since the setting is supposedly more grounded in a real-life, street thugish atmosphere, I couldnt really make Vergil look like his ostentatiously royal self - horse riding boots, a crocheted shirt, etc.

So I took cues from crotch rocket, motorcycle riders to give this version of Vergil the "cleaner" look of the two twins, as is his Modus Operandi. Lots of clack, biker leather, heavy duty buckled biker boots, rider's gloves, etc. I kept the coat simpler in design, but added a sweatshirt underneath, to add more of a hipper, more youthful element to his otherwise, adult style. And finally, in all its glory, Yamato, uncut and totally left untouched. Why fix perfection?

So, thoughts, comments, reactions?

*cough*

Okay, since that is out of the way, I'll give you my thoughts on this one.
I think this looks too much like the 'old' Vergil, remember that even he was a bit rebellious teenager before he started studying the history of his family and wanted to be more like his father. But yes, this would be the time he actually started. Maybe you could remove and add something on his coat? Maybe make it shorter, add some little patterns. And you should change the collar of his coat, now it looks even more fancy and mature than the original one. But idk, you choose.
