See the mod in action:

I was a big fan of the glowing effects in the Deathwing inspired Alduin mod, but I wasn't so fond of the metal jaw. After tweaking the texture to remove it, I went a little overboard and added several other details, including glow on his neck and the burning embers of uncountable devoured kalpas that are clearly causing him indigestion glowing in the back of his throat. I've redrawn the wings to be more sinewy and redrew the chest glow entirely. Also added some battle scars and pink gums and white teeth. The latter are arguably non lore friendly since they make him look a bit more fleshy and mortal than he should. So I've included multiple versions to choose from.

Version 1, Main version
This has all the trimmings, wing and body glow, pink gums, white teeth and scar detailing.

Version 2, More Lore Friendlier
Nixes the pink gums, white teeth and scars but leaves everything else.

Version 3, No Wing Glow
Same as the main version but without the glow detailing on the wings. I may make a version of this for the More lore Friendlier version if people are interested.

Overall I think it makes him more visually striking.
