WWII Japanese Kamikaze Pilot

Description I have been browsing many WWII stuff recently & came across many WWII Japanese Kamikaze pilot pics,I find the attire/uniform of the kamikaze pilots looks very interesting & Cool.So I attempt to draw a real-looking Kamikaze pilot & this is the outcome.... Drawing the pencil lineart is easy & fun......but the process of Outlining/CG-ing that come later is so tedious & takes alot longer than expected.

Kamikaze (神風, de kami « dieu » et kaze « vent »)   A l'époque d'Edo,  le mot désigne une tempête en partie légendaire qui, en 1281, aurait mis en déroute la flotte de Kubilai Khan et stoppé les tentatives d'invasions mongoles. Le mot fut repris à l'automne 1944 par la Marine impériale pour désigner la première Unité d'attaque spéciale (Tokubetsu kōgeki-tai 特別攻撃隊, souvent abrégé en Tokkōtai) composée de pilotes devant projeter leurs appareils sur des bâtiments ennemis.
