The Magician longs to see;
One chants out between two worlds:
Fire walk with me.
This is one of those ones that became more complicated as I worked on it, The basic idea of reworking the chestburster from Alien as a sorceror called forth some demonic monster was relatively easy. The problem came in when I realised I couldn;t construct a sorceror holding a book in a way that looked natural.
And so this chap was born:
My reasoning was that a sorceror capable of creating flesh-welded horrors would have, at some point, found himself running out of hands. How would he solve it? By creating some poor mutated sod whose job it was to carry his tomes of eldritch lore.
The sculpting of the freshly born horror was quite simple:
A lot of greenstuff and some bits, as you can see. The painting on all of them was the new style I've evolved for this kind of thing; lots of messy wetblending, washes and filters for tints.
Overall, I'm quite happy with this little triptych. Truth be told, the sorceror has turned out to be my least favourite part of it, so I'll probably have a go at creating another one when I have the time.
