Zephon by SpectralJin Zephon by SpectralJin
Felt like painting Zephon today. Always wanted to get back to the lieutenants in more detail.

Zephon really reminds me of the "Spider and the Fly" poem. Fantastic work, he's my favorite!

So cool! 

Though there's a question that now I'd like to ask... Nothing important, but I'm really curious :)

If I recall, in SR2, the images of the Sarafan in the basement... Zephon was painted red-haired, right? In fact, I always thought it was his hair colour... Is there a reason why did it turn black as vampire? Or the red hair was just "symbolic" or so?

Thanks!

Zephon as a human had red hair.. things changed as a vamp. His eye color wasn't yellow as a human either. ;)

*grumble* *muttering about how not funny this is*
I must say you made the Zephon in Soul Reaver look CUTE compared to creepy web-face you made. I would expect a devolved Zephon to creep me out but THIS*???

There's something so disquieting in your gaze and smirk, Zephon, that shouts me "Do not trust to this guy". Nothing personal, Zeph- *runs away from his spiders Wagh...on * You're still one of my faves, I swear! D:
Great job as always! I always figured him as a cunning rascal, you portraited him so damn good! :heart:

This is my favorite of your lieutenant paintings, but I might be biased by my love of spiders.

Sweet! I love spiders, too! What kind is your favorite? I like the Spiky Grass Crab Spider and Banana Spider. I may do another one of Zephon with more 'Spider Friends! (Go for it)'

I have a soft spot for southern house spiders (Kukulcania hibernalis), but I always like to see large orbweavers (such as Nephila clavipes and Argiope aurantia) in my yard.

Zephon seems like a black widow guy.

SpectralJin Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2013  Professional Artist
Oh sweet those guys look amazing. The Kukulcania have such beautiful legs. Whenever I draw spiders I look at the body to leg ratios, especially when deciding what kind of character to give it. Yes Zephon is definitely a black widow kind of guy (Messy cob web types in the Cathedral)
I also used the Steatoda Pulchra ( bugguide.net/node/view/158500 ) as reference.

They really do. When they've recently molted (the females continue to molt as adults), the legs and palps have a velvety sheen.

Haha! I don't see the problem there to be honest! Though I'd personally prefer to get bitten from Turel than Zephon ('cuz I'm more a Turel fan!) but on the other hand: potatoe - potato! :3

Wow! This is the definitive prefallen vampire Zephon for me. Here's why; from the dialogue between Zephon and Raziel in the first Soul Reaver, we can learn bits of his vampire self. Zephon suppose to be a cunning, deceiver character. A hypocrite and a vile bastard. When I look this magnificent painting, I despise him from the bottom of my heart; and here is why I feel this way, I had a "friend" just like has the same characteristics and same facial features and I despised him.

Well done my friend. For you can give me this emotions when I look your job. I applaud you!

No reason to forgive, Ramushanorak. If you feel that emotion looking at him, then I've done my job in conveying his deceptive nature. Hehe
