Make him look like a badboy! You’ll probably need tattoos, piercings, leather jackets, that kind of thing, etc.

So I think you could take him one of two ways; very posh or bad boy.

In regards to his outfit, if you want him to look more classy then I’d recommend adding maybe a watch and changing his shoes to that of a more formal attire. With his look, I think he suits a classy guy pretty well.

To go the more bad boy route, I recommend completely changing his outfit. Using dark colors/black, maybe that big chain necklace, piercings, tattoos, maybe a scar lol. Leather jacket, ripped pants etc. I’d recommend changing his hair to something more wild and messy, since his current style is prim and proper. You could also give him some facial scruff as well for that bad boy look :blush:

These options really just depend on how you want him portrayed in the story. Hope this helps! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
