This project has been delayed for too long. I've actually had this piece completed for a while but I didn't have an ideal set up to take pictures of it. I attempted a few photo sessions earlier in the year but wasn't satisfied with the results. Finally, I used my camera's tripod and a backdrop to take some pictures of the mask.
Lore-wise, the greater demon, Megiddo was a monstrous warlord that reigned over a large territory. At his side were two guardian beasts, Ice Serpent Hyouga and Ash Drake Ignir. Legend chronicles the bloody rule of Megiddo for many years before a rival faction rose up and overthrew him. Mortally wounded along with his guardians, the demon used the last of his strength to merge their souls together using an arcane ritual. Upon completion of the ritual, the being that emerged was an Arch Demon with three demonic faces. It wielded the power of ice and flames and obliterated the rival faction with little effort. Renaming itself Trinitus Megiddo, the reborn tyrant vanished into the ether to seek greater challenges.

Overall, I'm pleased with how this piece came out. Dan Reeder detailed some very useful techniques in his Youtube series so I recommend checking it out if you're interested in making something like this for yourself. I've been working on another wearable mask that will be an interesting take on the style. I'll probably post some WIP pictures of it as we get closer to Halloween. I do want to make an 2D emblem for this monster so I may post that as well.
Thanks for stopping by!
