Here's an illustration I did for a character concept.

Known for his elephant-like thick skin, Tank Hopkins is a grenadier with close-range fighting tendencies. Tank loves and appreciates the aesthetics of aerodynamics, that is, the sight of his enemies flying through the air. Tank has two straps on both wrists that hold several types of grenades. Using these, Tank will grab the top of the straps and use them to bludgeon his enemies into the air, (in all sorts of directions and distances). âEUoeThe farther they go, the longer I can enjoy seeing them flyâEU is Tank's simple-minded and maniacal motto. Despite using grenades to beat his enemies into creatures of flight, Tank's skin absorbs any close range blasts that might occur. Tank does occasionally throw his grenades; the pins are actually hard-fastened to the strap loops for immediate activation once released from their holders.

The only two scars that Tank has are self-inflicted. Since Tank was born without any distinguishing birthmarks, he is said to have given himself two, somewhat identical scars on both arms, with a chainsaw, just for the âEUoeflareâEU. It is not entirely confirmed however how he gave himself these scars. Now where normal humans would have lost the first arm and given up on the attempt at creating the âEUoeother scarâEU, Tank refers to the scars as âEUoescratches with characteristics to attract the ladies.âEU
