I stayed up for too long last night, and in the last few moments before I drifted into sleep, I got this idea for a portrait of Lucifer. The crown was originally supposed to be made purely from blood, but as I made the glas horns, I realized that a crown of ice or glas, stained with blood would look better :3
I had so much fun drawing the blood and the wings, trying out new ideas and techniques ^_^
I love the idea of the floating crown instead of a halo. But I think the crown needs a little more work to look perfect.
I'm sure that transparent shapes like the horns would warp things seen through them, but I'm not sure exactly how it'd do it (upside down? mirrored, warped around?) So I left it at that... for now.
The design for the horns came from this [link]
