Well, yeah it looks more necroesque because of the given evil aspect of it. However, nothing says that all Monks are Monks of a righteous path, perhaps some are occult Monks. xDOriginally Posted by Kyshen
Okay, Baphomet is not a "Goddess" per say, but she is a Demon Deity is she not? And being Demon or not, if she is Female and I assume she is, (having breast and all) and a deity at that; Can we not assume she can be considered a Goddess?and the baphomet isn't a Goddess.. it's a Demon and shares aspects of male and female form to truly portray the carnal nature of the forces it represents.
"A demonic deity envisaged as a goat-headed creature with wings, the breasts of a woman and an illuminated torch between its horns." From either.. Buckland, R. Signs, Symbols & Omens, Llewellyn Publications, St. Paul, MN, 2003. or Dunwich, G: Wicca A to Z: A Complete Guide to the Magickal World, Citadel Press, Toronto, 1999.
Actually, that wouldn't work physically. With the way skeletal and muscle structures are it would actually need to be one attatched near the shoulder blades, one just behind the rib cage, and one supported by the hip. I'm pretty sure it would be too much pressure on one section of the body to not only have that much weight from the wings, but the stress from actually using them during real-time flight would probably render bones/flesh and the like being ripped off during flight. Just my theory on that. Though, either way the entire skeletal structure and muscle structure would have to be a lot different to have 6 wings like that, atleast efficiently. Bone density, most other densities in general as well, we'd need way faster heart beats I'd imagine to be able to keep up with flapping 6 wings for a prolonged period of time, possibly multiple hearts. That and just the way everything is in place currently would probably have to be rearranged.I think the wings should all grow from the same place.. instead on different starting points down the back..
Completely fine :P, I'm picky too.sorry to be picky..
Here's a little later things I've done:
First being a normal Ancient Egyptianish Outfit, Second being as the Ancients pictured their Gods - I'll explain below.
Okay, same thing again basicly. Its my Monk's face. What I did here was went a lot more realistic along lines of what Egyptians would and would not do and such. She does not have her standard Monk hair because, here's an interesting fact not many people probably know: Egyptians, both men and women shaved their heads. They did this to prevent lice and such, it was also a lot more comfortable in the heat. Though they did shave their heads, they did not hold the belief that they looked better bald, so the majority of everyone wore wigs. Some were more extreme than others, Priests shaved their entire body, eye brows and lashes included every 3 days. Everyone else, to my knowledge shaved everything minus facial hair, but including the scalp.
Okay now with that, that is why the hair is more of a standard Egyptian wig-look. I did away with having metallic or gold braclets, as it was too hard to make them look like they belonged soley in photoshop. They usually ended up dull or shiny and always looked out of place. If I were to make them in 3Ds then marry them into the image, then that would be fine but I'm not going to.
Moving on to other articles.. The rings: Egyptians did wear a lot of jewelry, all of them have meaning. The one on the index finger of her right hand (hers) was actually a class of rings that could be used as a seal, it was very thick. The others arn't too interesting scarabs, sun disks with sekhmet etc.
Okay, now some more interesting things.. The colors all mean something, and they meant a great deal to the people of the time. White stood for purity and omnipotence, Black for death, night, also with the underworld so sometimes it meant resurrection, life and fertility strangely enough. Yellow/Gold being eternal, and indestructible. Blue symbolising the heavens. Red: Victory, Green: New life, or shrubarry things..
Now, that the colors meanings are known.. The second picture should make a little bit more sense. But the gods were believed to have their bones and skin made of gold, and their hair of lapis lazuli (which is a semi-precious blue stone). If you've ever wondered, this is the reason why Mummies generally always had masks and cases made of gold, and blue hair or other mostly blue things. When a Pharoah died he was to become the new Osiris, a god himself.
Anyways, maybe someone learned a little bit more about Egyptians and colors than they previously knew. xD
I'll probably be making a 3Ds model sometime soon, possibly go with some Egyptian theme. I may show it here whenever I get done as it could have to do with GW, being that NF is kinda in that theme. I may do some GW models too, not sure as of yet we'll see. Either way, that will be quite a ways down the future.
