Alright so, Im going to visit the design of the character a bit later. After having done these thumbs, it's going to be tough to implement it fully but I believe it's possible and can be done well. I put together a couple more moodboards for refs of volcanos and mountains at various perspectives, I know scale and perspective is big on my mind for this piece as I really want to push the godly and intimidating feel of the character. I also was thinking about whether pitting him against another god of a different element (it wouldn't be very obvious) or even his brother and exacting revenge (referring to something like the top right or bottom right with a body on the ground kinda thing).
Please let me know your thoughts! I will most certainly do more thumbs yet but I want to know your guys' opinions on what works best in these thumbnails. They are numbered and I did try to make them as clear as possible!
If you guys have any suggestions too as to what kind of situation this character would look good in let me know!
