I’ve rather fallen off the cart when it comes to personal artwork these past few weeks and honestly, I don’t recall what I have shared and what I haven’t.
I went through a spell of working with some of my ‘main’ characters and designing them up for a canon universe, but honestly, since Covid-19 hit the UK I’ve barely even thought about drawing, let alone anything story based. I’m only drawing at the moment because I took on a bust commission for someone wanting to be an Emperors Spear and the people who sent them my way said such lovely things I felt mean saying no – that and I figure I can fit one bust in my time-schedule right now (I’m not officially open for commissions right now – just saying)
Anyway, back to the picture at hand. I redesigned my oldest character, Torquemada to take on a bit of an identity of his own, rather then being eternally linked to Hellraiser as a fan-character. Making him worship a deity connected to the world that he and Skaejre inhabit. The deity being Serpentis, who resides at the middle of the world, a Goddess dedicated to the manipulation of the flesh who, in return for his loyalty, grants Torquemada magical prowess. His title is High-Bailiff as Serpentis considers all flesh hers, rented out to mortals who only waste their potential on banal pursuits.
I know before the world went a bit crazy I was trying to push my anthropomorphic works to look a bit better and feel more ‘complete’ than the pin-up style I had been clinging too, but I feel like I am once again out of the loop and not really sure if I am really ready to plunge myself back into anything too deep and meaningful yet.
