[PA] Vile Beast by Gothamed [PA] Vile Beast by Gothamed
I mean ohhai it's Merciel. 

This is a concept for his upcoming ref sheet, I just rly wanted to show it off. |D

Merci's species is actually like... horribly weird looking insectoid-reptillian mutant arcane monster things. 
With three typings and magic extra arms. They're terrible.

I love them. 

00: Y-Type || +/- || Male-Sexed || Rebel
> Standard appearance w/mutations.
> Uneven, semi-smooth exo down both arms.
> Shorter collar mane.
> Mutated scorpion tail.
> Mutated extra eyes. 
> Labradorite toned scales/claws.

Merci's a Y-type so not as fluffy/spikey as the S/D types. 
Time Taken: Too long for a rough sketch.
Program: Manga Studio 5
Character: Merciel (gothamed)
Species: Archae (gothamed) 
Art: Me / Gothamed

When I saw him i was "I want to cherish, and cae for this monster bab" 
He came oout great
Are those things on his arms like gauntlets or like bone plated arms?

Right?!~ He's my favorite boy and I have no idea why other characters are so rude to his monsteryness. 

They're bone plated! (Poorly draw, but. |D)

By cultural standards, he's supposedly repulsive (mutated a little too). 
xD Thank you! I'm definitely learning as I go.~ 

Thank you! ovo/) Hopefully his full ref will be posted soon enough.

They're a far more modest/tradition heavy society. Free-thinking and modification is something of a no-no to the council over things. Just because they want everyone to generally appear the same. To even use the 'feral' forms is highly restricted in the inner city of Chalice. 

To be a pariah would be to act out, alter the body with ink/metal, even going against your assigned role in life. The council, and tradition-following citizens are very very strict about things. Even a small slip up on one thing or another could get'ya disowned from your entire family, and then you'd be cut out altogether before being hauled off to be throw over the wall. o: 

They're pretty rude-guys up in the council, though all the designs I've done (so far) have been rebels. o: IE: Don't live in Chalice.
