nondescript sketching

kind of hard to wear a helmet without a head but y’know comic magic=science or whatever, the field I mentioned occupies the space in there and lets the helmet behave like a head, able to turn and stuff

whatever it’s monsters the details are pretty fluffable right

So this is Bjørn. I’ve really been wanting to make a new character of my own unrelated to anything else, because I really haven’t in over 5 years. I’ll put the fun details under a cut, but first have a reference from the front for his helmet.

A while ago, an artist I respect and admire greatly talked about wanting friends for a character of hers. So for inspiration I used her monster generator and got a prompt for “A functional Dullahan that wears a complicated mask.” And while I had plans for it, a design and idea never stuck, which is unfortunate because I really dug the prompt.
But after a long break I changed how I was thinking about it and finally came out with something I really liked.
I wanted to keep some aspects of what a Dullahan is supposed to be, but not all. So what happened is this poor fellow somehow lost his head, he can’t remember how or where it could be (and it does still exist somewhere) because everything before the event he can’t remember. So when he wakes up with a stump for a neck, amnesia, and a disembodied voice people and himself are a little startled. But he finds this helmet and starts wearing it.
And idk it’s mythology so he can speak and see, just imagine that while his physical head is gone, I guess his mental existence chills out where it should be. So he can see and speak but he can’t explain why, and he definitely doesn’t know where his head is.
But I did want to keep a few things in reference to the original mythology of the Dullahan. So Bjørn is not terribly fond of objects made of gold, the colour and texture is very offputting to him. Also locks can inexplicably open themselves when he’s nearby. Something about a field around his body that allows him to see and speak and be just kind of strange as a consensus whole. Think about it like a ghost, they can open locked doors and see you, though they don’t actually have a physical form.
Obviously he has a physical form. Which brings me to the next thing, his skin is a darkish red orange, because he’s a monster why not) And yes, under the helmet all he has there is a stump. It’s not really gory or gross, it’s just a stump. He also tends to pick out clothing that aesthetically matches the helmet so it doesn’t really raise that many questions. People just kind of assume he’s strange.
But I really wanted to design something I found visually pleasing, and have a character that was strictly mine since I just hadn’t made one in several years. So there you go.
Idk what to say if you really read all of this. Congrats I guess)

So this is Bjørn. I’ve really been wanting to make a new character of my own unrelated to anything else, because I really haven’t in over 5 years. I’ll put the fun details under a cut, but first have a reference from the front for his helmet.

I’m super excited for the next chapter of Space—there’s been a lot of really great fan character submissions for cameos, but this guy is my favorite)))

Mortis Ghost has been a really big artistic influence on me since I discovered him. And I’ve been kind of meaning to draw this particular design of his, as it’s one of my favorites))
