I think you did a great job with Kabal and you have some great talent. Really love the shading on the pants, just looks pretty neat. The shoes looks awesome too. The arms also look great, like the bloody cuts on him. I dont really mind if you used the hook swords or not. Im sure you were just trying to create something else. Would be the same is if I were complaining about you giving him a different attire. You also did a very nice job with the mask. The only thing that would make this look better is if you added more detail to the upper body's clothing. The vest looks rushed and the shirt on him looks too plain. Compared to his lower body, it doesn't look as good.
