Uranus by Tapwing Uranus by Tapwing
"before time, shapeless night of silver embrace, by love, my fear, my hate, fell the dead lord. Uranus" 

creation- this god was a bit tricky to design as he didn't have much to go off of in the way of lore. 
So I started with the basics. 
Being god of the sky and covering Gaia at night, I wanted to have the starry sky be the core of his design. 
His body (though mostly formless) was inspired by such things like manta rays (and capes thanks to a joke my sister made) to make him a nice canvas for the night sky. 
For colour I decided to stick with silvery tones to give him a cold and removed feel to him like the deep expanses of space. 
A couple other inspiration were things like a crescent moon and the North Star for his face, but all in all he's relatively simple in design, mostly because the stars and galaxies have so much detail to them.

You should make that possible as print! I'm sure someone will buy it! I would if the shipping isn't so expensive..

Maybe someday ^^ prints arn't something I've really looked into so I'm not sure how I'd make prints available.

This is an amazing design! You really captured the sense of expanse of space, and god-like power. Great background too!
(Is he going to eat the planet?)

It's so amazing to compare your old work and this new stuff.
It's been great to see you improve so much and this piece really takes the cake :)
