Masked: Lost Soul - WIP Sculpture



Since Ive been working on this guy back and forth since last May I figured its time to show a WIP of him, even if its super much work left to do. Im not even done with the sculpting. :faint: Also cause the Masked Design Contest just ended I figured Id post something with a Masked. 8D 


Ive been mentioning for a while that theres 2 kinds of Masked, them of light and them of darkness. In the dark category belong the ones who were born light but turned dark for different reasons, but theres also another kind, the ones being born corrupt. This above is one of them, namely the oldest, most dangerous and vicious of them all, the Lost Soul. 
This being is the nemesis of the Soul Dancers (seen below) - while these gentle Masked collect the souls of the dead after they depart and carry them until they mature and can start another life in a new living being again, the Lost Soul steal these souls from the Soul Dancers, taint them and give birth to corrupted souls, people destinied for evil.
Lost Soul once looked more like a real Masked but the more human souls it prayed upon its essence melted togheter with the human spirits and the memoies of their bodies. Thats why it now has lost its true spirit form and look like a undeveloped mix between a animal and a human, with the memorys of flesh, skin and bones oozing from the humans trapped souls and into the Masked. What he once looked like in his pure state theres no one to remember. 
More disturbing yet is the fact that the Lost Soul can taint the very essence of other Masked and corrupt them as well. When these kind of battles between light and dark occur nature disasters rip over our earth, and if the corrupted Masked leave victorious nature scream in agony and something is forever lost. And if you now are thinking that light always overcome darkness, look around you and think again...

Random side info! :dummy: 
Do you know how it feel to have a Lost Soul stare into your room on the second floor in the middle of night. Watching its breath hit the windows glas in cold white sprays? I do. Its pretty hard to go back to sleep after that...

The flaking skin makes this even more creepy than the exposed ribs.
