Here is another Lantern MArines commission.
This time it is their Chapter Master. Name is unknown to me.
Yes, he looks like Ozzy Osbourne...somewhat.
The theme is Tiki/Polynesian mixed with heavy metal.
As far as I understand it, one of the main ideas that came out of brainstorming the Lanterns was that their ChapterMaster should look like Ozzy.
I have tried to steer the look away a little but I like how it came out in the end.
Cookies to those who figure out who the heroes in the background are originally based upon...
Also, I did a revision, where the bat was added. Whilst painting it I wrote this little tidbit that the commissioner liked, so it stays with the image:
The firebat is a known predator on the Lantern homeworld.
It is not called Firebat because it light up with fire,
rather it reflects in a somewhat unnatural manner.
The tribesfolk of the planet would enter the caves of
the bats with torches and thus see bats of fire.
They are common pets of the tribes and sometimes also used by Lantern Marines.
It is considered bad luck to eat the head of a firebat..."
