The old form had its flaws. The outfit I didn't much care for, but his face was definitely better and more expressive. I especially liked the concept art with his partially closed, condescending eyes with a slight angle to his head pointing upward to denote superiority. Sharp features, pointy beard. It looked ancient, regal, and wise. I think that face combined with the new attire would be a pleasant mix.

I still think he chose his current form to hide his dirtyness and appear more like a grandpa than an ancient sage. To what end? To reinforce the dogma most likely, as my fellow desciple of Chaos noted before.

I'll take this closing statement as an opportunity to toot the horn of Zamorak. His design...is spot on. Somehow it's exactly how I imagined him to be after doing the ghost robe side quest all those years ago.

zamorak's design is quite good, and armadyl's six winged giant form is quite good also (his smaller version looks a tad weaksauce, like kree-arra could wipe the floor with him) but... Icthlarin, I think, is the best looking of the gods, and also the most godly-looking, with old-saradomin in second place

not a fan of zaros's new look (admittedly his old look is just a face) or seren's look from before within the light, do like the after version though

oh by the way, if you google 'saradomin concept art' (the one for his old look), I guarantee* you'll fall in love. That face just screams order, wisdom, power, one-true-god and*oforth

*not an actual guarantee

It would have looked better with a bit more gold.

I think I get that that's meant sarcastically
But I'm not really referring to the full body one, I was more meaning the face ones

the body is a bit too unnecesarily buff for a god who seems to be going for a wise, ancient, powerful wizard vibe
for icthlarin, bandos, and to a lesser extent zamorak, muscles and size add to their godliness instead of taking away from it

If you look closely, he's still quite slim. It's just the pauldrons and general bulk of the robes that make him appear to have a big physique. That, combined with the upright, shoulders back posture.
Again we go back to possibly psychological reasons for Saradomin choosing to morph into what he is now.
Specifically the only things I have a problem with on his old look is the crown and the shape of the lower part of the robe. It was a bit too flared out and looked awkward when he walked. Shorten and slim that robe slightly to be more practical for movement and replace the crown model with the new one and I think we have our winner.

I noticed that, yes... I just sort of didnt feel like adding a sentence explaining what I meant :P
I'm lazy

I like the old crown more, actually, though I can agree with the robe bit, I guess
