This was supposed to be my entry for the most recent Bones Beauty Pageant, but something weird happened in my brain and I translated May 4th to May 6th as the finish date... and finished him late By like, a day. Go figure. Anyway, when I was looking for inspiration for him I turned to my Hubby, as usual, because he has interesting ideas. Almost immediately he thought of a portion of the Dethlok song Mermaider II, which references a prophet. For a reference picture he gave me the special edition cover of Dethalbum II, which is a really awesome, dark merman wielding two tridents. So for my prophet I decided to go for dark tones, staying in the cool ranges. Mostly, I just wanted to keep him really dark, as though he was lurking at the bottom of an abyss. His armour is all grey, with a dark charcoal sample paint standing in for dark elf shadow (which I don't yet have), then I used dark elf skin, and dark elf highlight. The every light points (which are inspired by the bright points on piranha scales) is rainy grey. I washed the armour with watered down brown liner, to give it an aged, grey bone look, though I don't think I achieved that as well as I would have liked. His bottom most skirt is black, with carnival purple highlights. The pleated skirt was based in forest green, then highlighted with a blend of minty sample paint and forest green which made a nice teal. The dark blue layers are nightmare black with some P3 blue highlights. And that's about what I remember of his skirts. Aside from that I came to the conclusion that he probably never gets undressed, unless he has very good motivation (and help getting dress afterwards ). Finally, I did the OSL effect from his bobble with Atlantean Aqua, lightened with white and watered down a lot. The water effect is entirely new to me and caused me no end of nervousness while I was at work and it was curing. I was pretty sure I had ruined him. But it looks pretty neat, especially with the red in there. Looks like he just murdered something And the cat hair is not attached, it's just my cat's way of photobombing Reference picture: Reference lyrics:
