I think the problem with it is that it's a bit TOO normal, it just kinda looks like a Gargoyle statue of a Dog, with glowing eyes and wings. I think it's just too plain? I dunno, I like it either way.

Imo it looks excactly as it has to.
The problem is: all other game doesn't fit. When I see "Grim" in the title I don't expect rivers of blood, but the fact that all enviroment around the player is either hostile towards him or simply doesn't care about his actions.
An offtopic all out of sudden.

Grim is a huge buff already. Why not give him a snoddy little dog, or crazy looking Gargoyle, instead? Find a character (trait) you want to go with Grim, first. Then design it and iterate, until you find your guy.

My understanding of the English language is fine, btw.

I like him. Even if you choose not to make the grim look like this it would be awesome if these gargoyles were sort of a living background in the game. Chasing each other around the edge of the rooftops or just creepily following the player with their gaze as you moved around in the game.

Well, if you don't go for a dog, I honestly think Grim should have a Marmot. Seriously, you never get a Marmot for a sidekick-in any game! And just think about how many times a baddie might be thinking---Hey, nice Marmot! And then he gets maimed.

Grim: Marmot...MAIM!

I get the concept and appreciate the sketches here, but to be honest, I've seen this particularly popular " Bizarro world- Scooby Doo " looking beastie in a lot of cartoons and other media. It's just the breed I think.

No disrespect, bit IMO, this specific model would simply be too " expected " and subsequently unremarkable, offering little to compliment Grim's strong character. Personally, I would lean towards a somewhat more traditionally styled gargoyle uniquely designed to compliment Grim's character by reflecting his persona ( psychic bleed through the bond they share ? ) - perhaps resembling him and/or favoring blades for it's attacks as well ? Something to strongly define it's connection to Grim...

Word.
He is straight up the dog from Batman beyond, huh?
He's since been sidelined.
Thanks for the input guys. We'll come back to this issue once the attack is designed out more.

@ Tori.... lol Marmot. They can be nasty things.

Description

Grim has this one attack, almost like the buddy assists from MVC2, and up to now it has been assumed it would be this Gargoyle Dog flying in from off screen.
There is some dissent amongst the team as to what this should be, or if the dog fits?
I think it does, but I'm not completley married to it.
