    Just did some doodling.
    Early stage, very unstable. Might change the whole case. Anyway, that's all for now.

    I don't know why I ended up doing this when I could get to choose from a huge pool of majestic gods and goddesses but I hope this still counts as a mythological character.

    To celebrate the recent release of Sekiro and my undeniable weebness, I thought it fit to go for something Nipponese.
    Thus, I've gotten off my ass and started working on Nue.

    Trying to make these eyes look round instead of sad egg yolk will be a worthy challenge.
    The model can be found here

    This guy's probably too big to be considered a kappa.

    Guys I have to say that the theme is Mythological Characters (hence the title change), but you could still go to a different direction but you'll most likely have a very low score on the Concept criteria which scores for 40 points. Just an early note guys.
