First set I ever did with this model; first of many.
This was a bit of a spur-of-the-moment design; I'd had the rough idea some time before to have branching, swirling lines extending along the length of the body. But when the time came, I realized I didn't have a scheme I was a big fan of. So, fall back on what you know:
People who've known me for a long time will recognise this design, in a sense: Back in high school, I would paint a version of it across my own face and go out and a bout like that. Later, it became part of my costume for a long-lived Vampire character of mine named Nicky Smith. Still later, it found its way onto a mask I made. Now it's here.
Why? Because it is snazzy. Duh.
