Acolyte Fiend Concept Sketch for Nightmare Beginnings > The Acolytes are a military techno-religious group that had it’s founding several years after the Fusion Disaster of 2009. Technically an offshoot of Catholicism; they have since turned towards the older prefusion technologies as a way of life and worship. The Fiend is the final stage of the Acolyte warrior. After a Deathstalker has outlived his/her usefulness or ability to fight they willingly give themselves to the great final battle. Their war-torn bodies are ritualistically ‘dismembered’ and rebuilt as ‘mindless’ cyborg killing machines. Traditional equipment – All internal/natural: Claws, submachine gun, saw w/ flesh blade, heavy polymer armor. Another piece I had drawn at work - hence the slightly poor quality of the sketch itself. I have this bad habit of just not drawing parts I don’t think I can make look good that day. Hence I didn’t draw the one leg or the foot on the leg I did draw. Not the greatest, but not the worst. Drawn first with a .5mm blue drafting pencil and then over with details with a .5mm mechanical pencil.
