Rough Ideas for Scars

For a few months, and between freelance gigs, I've been working on a personal project based around an idea for a Batman movie. The Batman movie I'll probably never get to see.

This is my concept for Two-Face. In the story, Two-Face has been established for years. The split personality of Harvey Dent and Two-Face has pretty much merged into one being now. He's desperate, being hunted by rival Black Mask. Trying to survive he's began robbing armoured cars to finance his retaliation.

I tried playing around with lots of scar variations for this design, trying to strike a balance of horrifically scarred but not being 'horror-movie' monstrous or disgusting. Tricky balance! Originally, I thought Jon Hamm would make a great Two-Face, but decided to go with Jon Bernthal instead. I thought he could really nail the intense psychotic moments! Let me know what you think.
