My early Victor designs were intended to ground the classic Doom iconography in plausible historic influence. Though horribly altered from the the planet zero disaster, it leaves Victor with the ability to manipulate the matter of planet zero creating what ever he chooses. In this case a suit of armor reflecting the historical heyday of his country Latveria. I combined Turkish and Mongolian influences to come up with his Latverian look. Production eventually went with a very different idea.
