Nick looks like Sullivan from the Uncharted Series which in turn looks like Sean Connery.

Pretty ******* great otherwise.

I still haven't had the pleasure to play Uncharted so can only tell you that both that character and Sean Connery were not influences in the design of Nick. But I suppose unconsciously we all love us some Connery :/

Kinda agree, he should be a shade lighter. This isn't the Jungle. :P

He also has panther eyes, lmao, that is hilarious. Not sure if that was intentional or an over-sight.

He's hardly too dark compared to the real thing, but I suppose we're all a few shades lighter from lack of sun and have lost touch heh. Though it's important to remember these are all in-game WIP assets. Will definitely keep everyone updated on any changes that may come to pass.

Whose call is that? Seriously? He's ******* black and he can be whatever shade he's painted to be.

What is really bad about this shade anyway? He's not even as dark as Louis.

Marcus is awesome. Every zombie game needs a black enforcer.

Note im comparing him to his ZPS counterpart, he was lighter in ZPS, so i think it would be safe to assume he didnt get blacker overnight.
