While we liked and grew quite attached to the original drummer design, he was really just in a shirt and pants. We’ve livened up his design a bit by making the jagged motif more prominent, added subtle diamond patterns in place of the yellow strips and gave him a hat for good measure among other details.

We wanted to break up the space on his arms a bit too. Bandages were a no go especially after seeing what happens when their inherent coolness is abused…
