Tweaked a few areas as per critique
Well this was a long time coming. I had a design for a "godvalis" many years ago, but it never made it past a sketch phase. Really the only thing i recall from that design was glowing red hair and no shirt. This was done as concept art for my anatomy final.
For this design i wanted to pull a lot of power into the character. It was extremely challenging trying to get the translucent skin look i had in my head without making him become too much like a monster. I made his armor kinda transform and bend to become more open. I wanted to draw phoenix imagery into the design, the skirt thing and armor becoming feather shapes. When designing the god scythe, i pulled from these two original scythe designs: [link] [link]
I wanted it to look very out of this world, the blade also bleeds inky black smoke.
Anyways guys i hope you like it, and i hope his scythe is big enough for you this time.Adventurer ArvalisFarmhand Arvalis
