a bit of a back story of the character:

Much is not known about the past of Thanatos. There are records of his association with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Illuminates of Thanateros. It is said that even the infamous Aleister Crowley feared his very presence.

Mastin regards Gotham City as "a breeding ground for viral magick symbols that are at the same time self-obsessed and death-crazed...", which would explain why he setup base for his Mindworks corporation, a leader in technological innovation in this "city of freaks". He sports a fascination for Wayne enterprises and the man at its helm, Bruce Wayne.

He is a highly regarded occult practitioner and believes that the human mind is the ultimate weapon.

Mastin is a paradox of a man. While remaining both cold and calculated, he is also a child of chaos. He has traveled to many parts of the world in search for occult knowledge. His motivations, like his past are filled with shadows and mystery.

A man of technology and science, he sports a variety of lethal weaponry, from his trusty blade, to his favorite, the dart gun, loaded with Datura stramonium extract, a known deliriant, which induces hallucinations, psychosis and even death in his victims.

this comp is for a next gen character though. although it dosn't say you have to use up the poly limit I think you should use up most of it to get more detail in the character. Also it needs to be normal mapped otherwise you will get disqualified. Still a nice game model. You could maximize your texture sheet a bit better as well, as there is a lot of empty space. Would have also been good to see your progress on this. while you made also your concept work.

Out of curiosity, how is the calling card related to the character, they seem like two unrelated themes.
