Frag aka Eufrath by Fealasy Frag aka Eufrath by Fealasy
A test in painting something a tad more realistic, just to spend some time on a face. So what better than to doodle my dear Eufrath (Frag in ce comic)

It's damn triggy, I have a clear idea of his facial features, but damn they where hard to get down. His hair is a bit darker than it actually is irl, but it suited the image.

:heart: Damn I had him around for almost 10 years now.

I would love to see this amount of detail in more of your work personally, coz your composition and colouring is friggin excellent and the concepts are too, while theres nothing wrong with the simpler stylised stuff this would just make it 110% imo

I so love what you did with the hair and the face. It looks so magical, though realistic at the same time. An enchanting piece.

Are all these crosses of Lorraine you've been using in your work just your own choices of symbolism, or are you making Manson refrences? :D

I love the hair btw. It's not too blue, it gives it a nice realistic touch.

Manson? Charels Manson used it? I thought he had a normal cross.

I use it for one reason only.. When I was somewhat 13 years old, the obious idea that the Cross of Christ and the upside down "satanic" cross together would symbolize "neutral", Eufrath (Frag) is half angel and half demon, he has wings and hors, often he even has a tail and halo aswell, and ofcause he has that one devil wing and one angel wing. It's just how he was designed back when I was a kid. The cross just stuck with me, always will.. To me it's HIS symbol.

Ofcause later I realize that the "anti cross" that some satanic supporters use as their symbol, really is Saint Peters Cross, he let himself crucify upside down to show how willing he was to suffer for Jesus. It's actually a sign for "sacrefice and compassion to Christ"

The cross has been used by the temple knights, Jean d Arc and it's in the flag of Slovakia (dunno why tho)... But it was also used by alcymists in the middleage, who aswell saw it as a symbol of "neutral power". Quote: "The arms of Christ, the arms of Satan and the blood of both" and "As it is above, it is below" "you can not take, without giving" ect ect.

But I don't really give a shit about what people 1000 years ago think of it, to me, it's just Eufrath's damn cross. :P

There ya go. story of my freggin life XD

lol.

I ment to say Marilyn Manson. He used the cross in a lot of his imagery in one of his tours... I'm not sure which one. It would be obvious why he would use it because his main message in most of his music is to flip images and ideas (crucifix, polotics ect.) around to make people look at them a different way. The Lorraine cross would be a very obvious choise for someone like him when he wants to show a unison of god and satan in one symbol, that really flips what most christians consider that god has the upper hand in the spiritual realm when in fact, the powers are equally in balance.

You've never heard of marilyn manson before??? You'ed like him a lot. There's a fucking ton of esoteric religious symbolism laced in his lyrics and imagery. Fun stuff. :ohnoes:
