Badass. I love the design and art so much. Looks more Chinese instead of Japanese, though. Is it Chinese inspired?

Not really. These were all inspired by Japanese traditional samurai clothing.
But, once you get to research about Japan you'll find out, as a matter of fact, that historically, Japanese culture has been influenced by lots of cultures of continental Asia, especially China. So such things as the kanji writing, Buddhism and clothing came mostly from China even though Japan has developed their own variant of these creating a new and rich culture.

Thank you very much!

Actually, Japanese military history is a hobby of mine, which is why I asked. I've never seen the disk type decoration in the chest or gauntlets styled like that before, but the gauntlet seems more traditional Shredder.

Anyway, thank you for answering!

Oh! Yeah, you are right about that! But I wanted to insert the Foot logo so I took that liberty here. :D

Thanks!
