the simplest answer is I’m obsessed with tron legacy. so anytime i see piping in general, my initial gut reaction is to make it glow. and with cyclops having “light” powers, it just made sense to me.
my approach is i keep all the piping on cyclops a flat colour, and apply an airbrush layer of the same colour as the red over it set to “overlay”
