DEADZONE HOBBY PROJECT:
Plague in Progress: Bless me, father…
I mentioned in my previous post a charismatic preacher that would have taken the wayward flock of inmates of the mining facility under his wing… it seemed only fitting to me that such a figure would take the discovery of something sinister in the deep as a sign, and insist on being the first to see it.
Hence, the Deacon was born. I like to think that in his head he is cleansing and healing the galaxy as a messianic figure in this new form; hence the beatific pose.
I drew on a lot of inspiration from my favourite monsters and villains here, particularly in the resculpt of the face and tendrils. I also tried to add an extra sweeping plate to the hood of his bony armour to make it reminiscent of a bishop’s mitre.
