GODDESS ZLOKANNA VILLAIN
Commissioned design work for James Henson for his comic;
Zlokanna is a villain deity that resides in a city lake.
We wanted to explore different possible body types such as a full mermaid look, with only a tail or tentacles, but felt like this is too typical and traditional.
We combined the idea of having her with both humanoid legs along with sea-creature features like the tentacles. This look is more intimidating and formidable as it suggests that she has both advantages in sea and on land.
I was initially inspired by current characters such as Ahri from League of Legends and other Asian nine-tailed human fox characters with the multiple tails coming from behind to connect the human to creature. I liked this idea with the tentacles.
