I liked what they did with Zero's R2 design, but really liked this one concept art image where there's a giant Geass sign across the chest. I thought that was more "super hero" looking, so I worked from that, but kept the distinctive coat collar from the series design.
The coat is seriously one of the more beautifully constructed things I have ever made.
I think Zero's cape is totally silly, but it actually worked out and I'm kind of pleased with what I managed to do with the collar.
I can't take credit for the mask, since that's all Ashley, but I did give her the idea to use a big egg for the visor.
