I Am the Eighth Wonder of the World

The infamous Xellos Metallium. This took me most of a day to color (I started working on it sometime between two and three, and finished close to nine). I love that quote. I should've written down who said it. @_o I tend to think this Xellos leans more towards his persona in Slayers TRY. Dark, truly mysterious, and evil as all get-out. I think some of the best parts of this are the staff, the clasp, and the thing over his shoulders. Well, and the hair. I like the hair. Pants are kinda sloppy, but not too bad. Glove could use a little more shading. But otherwise, this came out all right overall. 13 layers, Photoshop 7, liquify/radial blur on the bg. Most of this is at 75% opacity, the shirt at 50%. Dodge and blur are my friends. To see the full version with no deterioration on color or size, go here. Xellos is c/o all those cool people that own Slayers. Quote is Gef, the talking mongoose (Quoted in H. Carrington & N. Fodor The Story of the Poltergeist Down the Centuries, 1953).
