This is Rinji's ultimate defense taken a small step forward and is a follow up to this pic: https://www.weasyl.com/submission/1361873/rinji-s-absolute-defense-susanoo-first-stage
Since I can't afford colored pics right now, unfortunately, this is all I have. The key difference in this one compared to the previous one is the inclusion of a phoenix skull over Rinji's head. But since it's only inked lineart, it's very difficult to see. Though if it were made any more prominent, then you wouldn't be able to see Rinji's own head, which is actually intended to be seen through what is supposed to be a transparent phoenix skull.
So all in all, additional protection for his head while using the technique. I intend to eventually find an artist to take this even further. Hope you like! Thanks!
I did my best to trace over the phoenix skull head, so you can see it better: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tms6e9kh9nfn3l3/(RinjiPantera)%20Rinji1.jpg?dl=0
