what is anatomy? :'D

*coughs blood* I've begun this... I don't even remember when! (before the last series of commissions for sure) It's finally done .-. I can't believe it! ...well, nope. It misses a couple of things, like his animal companions and his feral form, but I'll do them in separate sheets (maybe).

However.

This is my OC Wraith, a human/raven shapeshifter.

Despite the character design changed a little, maybe someone can recognize him since he's already appeared in my gallery... a lot of time ago, actually. So his old representations are quite old&ugly... I wonder if I'll find the strenght to link them down here. :'D

About the weapons set: holy sheep, what a pain! D: It's been a while since I've made them, but I clearly remember how I felt.I wanted him to have custom weapons, but... how? I don't have a clue about this topic. I did some custom weapons in past - like these (shura) and these (la baronessa) - but I wanted something better for him. Something... more custom. I thought about commission someone to do them for me, but I couldn't afford the prices of the few I found .-.
So I convinced myself I could do it and tried to get my shit together.
I didn't know where to begin, although I knew they would have been scythe-shaped. The giant grim reaper-ish scythe is a classic, the sickle came out naturally when I redesigned the character, and I discovered the existence of the khopesh shortly before, and I HAD TO add it too.
Then I chose the common elements for all of them: a colour palette that matches the character, raven/crow features (like the wing shape of the scythe), and those "thorny branches" that reminds the tattoo (that's not really a tattoo but subcutaneous shadows oh my, it sounds so stupid .-.). And ta-dah! Custom weapons appeared. ...okay, it was a total pain but in the end I did it! \(°v°)\
Lastly, I gave them a name, took from mythology as I usually do: the scythe is The Morrigan, the khopesh is Nemain, and the couple of sickles are Badb (and) Catha (all from Irish Mythology, all crows related).
The scythe is in two forms since I haven't decided yet if the one with the skull is cool or ridiculous xD)

About the 'tattoo': It's been so long that I've ideated it that I don't even remember when, how, why I got the inspiration. A thing that I remember is that I was having so much fun that I didn't want to stop.


TL;DR: rambling about the design

 Other drawings with him, so old that I want to cry:

Aaah, wanted to comment on this forever but couldn't find the time to write! Now is the time!

I really like your character designs, they're so balanced (in my view) in regard of colours. This one's blueish hair + black outfit combine awesomly with his pale skin + red eyes :heart: I specially like the tatoos (do they have any meaning, besides them being subcutaneous shadows or they serve any purpose?) and the details of the scythes. Also, it's a nice touch the bird mask to go with the feathery wings. The outfit is really detailed and the mask is really cool (although I wonder how he gets to breathe, as it seems made of leather and metal).

Aah, thank you! :love:

Regarding the tattoo... I don't remember xP I mean, surely it doesn't have any deep meaning... I think I just wanted to create something different than what I usually draw (a tattoo in this case), and probably exaggerated in the end since I was having so much fun. I can't even say if I created the character after the tattoo or vice versa... also, I guess the mask has holes to breath somewhere? I didn't really considered this .-.

Indeed it's inspired by plague doctor's masks (but more crow-like) :D and I agree, that game is gorgeous <3

Omfg the MASK! and- everything!!! *faints*
This is like one of the most detailed ref sheets I've ever seen. It's gorgeous! (not only the sheet itself but THE CHARACTER holy molly)
For scythe, I think the non-skull one looks more elegant and better, fits the character more :)

Keep up good work :la:
