Hellstead contest entry by ClaimTheSkies Hellstead contest entry by ClaimTheSkies
Whew I made it in time for Tiamatus's Hellstead contest. He's hosting a contest in which you can win an original sculpture made by him! Go check him out, he's an insanely talented and cool guy and deserves much more recognition and love than what he is having right now. 

In the contest, you have to figure out colors for the sculpture you might win. For many people, Hell brings heat and flames and all that stuff to mind but to me it's a harsh, cold place full of darkness. It's full of emptiness (kinda poetic eh) and silence and you can't help but feel hopelessly lost and scared out of your mind. You can't see, you can't feel, you can't smell, not even hear anything... Until the Hellstead emerges. And you wish you wouldn't have heard anything.

So I went for a cold color scheme as you can see, with turquoise-ish glowing details such as the eye. From the tips of all of the horns, blue vein like patterns evolve and gradually disappear. The glowing effect is of course very difficult to create with only paint but just blue does the trick haha ^^ The feet are just black. 

Anyway, that's that. My first ever entry for any kind of contest, I'm excited! This will also probably be the last submission from me this year so Merry Christmas and very happy New Year to each and all! Very good piece to finish the year haha : D Extremely festive amirite

Have a good one!
