FATE Conductor

I am finding it tricky to get The Conductor's expression to show youth, potential mastermind, joyous fanboy and powerful hero all at once. Here is the latest effort including a quick idea for the team VANQUISH logo.


The pic was done as a sketch in Photoshop mimicking pencil, then a few layers for a quick shade, colour and lightning. I really should try and get better at this business - I even resorted to using Liquify to fix the proportions and relationships between a few of the elements.

I am keen to see how the team fares in its next adventure, here is a summary of how I think his FATE character pieces together as an extreme summary:
