Ok, I changed the shirt of the previous design, and completed the sprite of the fusion form
hope you like it!
actually, the shadow, kinds of reflects the character personality, in this case, he isnt evil, just really serious, as oposite with the shadow of the main character, which is more of a trickster, more Crazy if you want to look at it that way, in an ideal game, this guys would be the main character, with his sence of duty and honor, not to saty the main character is evil, he just care way less that he should.
I think this looks good but next to the other charater it looks less inspired. Honestly I feel this guy's shadow doesnt look evil enough to stand up to the other one, it feels a bit like you're continuing the shadow fusion trend for the sake of it rather than because you have a clear idea of this guy's shadow.
Looks cool; I like your art style!
