I'm trying to come up with a design for character. He's an intergalactic warlord who is sentenced to imprisonment in the body of an earth child. So he needs to look ruthless but have a vulnerable side there.

I'm not sure if I even have the ruthless part down, but I thought some of these designs were fun anyway.
