Pencil. Originals of all those drawings are from medieval encyclopedias (Viollet-le-Duc), from engraves mostly. Many thanks to those who favored or just watched the first helmets drawing, it was unexpected for me.
Now that I'm free of commissions and shop work, Ive decided to turn all the scrap Ive been accumulating over the past 10 months into a personal project. I'm up to 150 cut, tooled and dyed scales, we'll see how this one turns out. *massages tired hand*
I love drawing armor specially Samurai armor. The richness of the details, the different pieces that made up the armor, the scary masks these warriors really knew how to instill fear in their opponents.
Vaermina is a Daedric Prince whose sphere is the realm of dreams and nightmares, and from whose realm evil omens issue forth. She is one of the Daedric Princes that is consistently depicted as evil or demonic, with a strong preference for psychological torture. Vaermina reaches out into Mundus and collects the memories of sleeping mortals, leaving nothing but visions of horror and despair. These experiences, known as nightmares, involve the mind of a mortal traveling to Quagmire, her realm of Oblivion. It is a realm of horrors, where reality shifts upon itself in seemingly impossible ways. Every few minutes, lightning flashes and the realm morphs into a terrifying scene, each one more frightening than the last. Most mortals are unaware of meeting Vaermina, however, as they cannot remember anything that occurred during their dreams. After a true, remembered encounter with the Daedric Lord, her followers often claim that nothing in the world holds any fear for them, as nothing can possibly be as frightening as being in Vaermina's presence. That's why I didn't use her traditional design as a mage...I tried to make her look really scary, like a creature of nightmare...well as I said I tried -.- she has three eyes, three maws (one on her throat, one on her belly) and lots of...uhm...claw-arm things...which look like insect legs of something... I'm again dissatisfied with it :/
