TEZCATLIPOCA - Fine Tuning the Character V.1

After having a few days of freeing up by creating silhouettes, sketch's and basic shapes to get some creative output, I feel as though in order to take some of these further and start defining more of TEZCATLIPOCA in my designs, I will need to revisit my first initial post on the character, and extract descriptions, whilst developing a Character Bio from this information, as well as adding my own artistic license, to use as reference.

■General Appearance: TEZCATLIPOCA The Black appears in his original form as a beautiful, handsome deity, his mere presence emitting a sense of royal divinity. with a warrior-like physique conveying his unprecedented strength and sorcery. Alongside the Deity's Goliath sized hands to create, he remains constantly prepared for battle with sword and shield at the ready, and to deal justice to man with the 4 arrows of Judgement, seen always in his right hand and the black, smoking obsidian mirror which renders enemies obsolete, residing at the centre of his chest. Resembling the image of man, and idolized by the Aztecs, TEZCATLIPOCA can be seen wearing the gifts and ornaments of his followers, such as he's fabled mosiac mask/headdress highlighting his mysterious and unreadable striped eyes, along with the 20 bells that cover each of his ankles. Whilst his original form conveys a human resemblance, some of his other shape-shifting forms can be seen in his make-up.
