Ohh honestly I didn't think of that! I definitely like the fall off of debris on the wings and that would probably be something I'd think about for his illustration if he's coming out the volcano in any case. I do agree he looks like a younger god, but I don't want to over complicate his design, especially considering his scale! I'll add some more aged effects to his design once I get back to it though
Hmm I'm really loving the bottom right two or the top right at the moment. I like the idea of him having fought and defeated his brother once having come out of the volcano but it might be just a confangled mostly complicated way to go about it. I did also like the idea of him dying shortly after hie defeated opponent due to his lack of strength and will to go on anymore than he has to now that he has taken out his revenge. That would include no.9 where he finally removes the sword from his chest and is essentially falling apart. His fire would be in the process of disappearing and massive parts of his skin and body falling away - his face would be turning to stone but he would stop crying, and he'd be happy!
Thanks! That is my favourite as well, I've had many ideas focused around that particular scene
