random, very very random. also, please excuse the transparent bars at either side.autodesk is working now but it's not nice :(
there's a little story i applied here.
basically he was captured by an icewing at a random time, as he's a veteran of the sandwing succession and saw most of his siblings die. because of the trauma, a twisted icewing who is animus, enchanted him to have the powers and flesh of an icewing, the tribe who he is VERY AGAINST, and now he has to live with the brown speckles and light flares of brown on his wings and underbelly as the only reminder that he used to have the powers, flesh and blood of a mudwing since i think the blood kinda colors the underbelly but not the scales.
now he's kinda cursed with actually radiating cold, but actually he isn't immune to it, so he's just always pretty cold. he's not immune to any of his new powers, but they can't really kill him. if he breathes his new frost breath, he gets REALLY COLD etc etc.
