So the last one was met with some really tough criticism. As the type of guy i am, i went back to the drawing board immediately the next day. I really thought him out more as a character, basically threw my all into this one.
I brought a phoenix pattern into his midsection, as the character is a reincarnation. He is adorned in decorative fabrics, but fails to keep them in nice condition as they are all frayed. This is a symbol for he is very focused and determined, so much so that nothing will stop him from achieving his goals. The armor is incredibly old, yet shows little wear as the armor was made for a god. The fire and stone pattern on the pouch symbolizes his passion and steadfast commitment to his quest. Yes he is primarily srsfayse, but thats where Corrina comes in to poke fun at his stoic nature. Also yes his scythe is realistically sized, it used to be a farm tool. His face is more rounded out, guess he looks more like me now. Art imitates life as they say.
Hope you guys like this one better.
