Pontiff by Keithwormwood Pontiff by Keithwormwood
Pontiff of the sea. Presented here personally acting as a missionary from the deep. He carries a gallows: the sign of their martyr. He smokes a hallucinogenic kelp from his long pipe (smoking being one pleasure dry land can offer him). He's actually wearing pilgrim's garb, and his papal attire at home in the sea is stunningly beautiful in comparison to this dour travelling wear. The bleached driftwood tied to his girdle is an element of his ecclesiastical dress.
An emissary of the Fey Folk kisses his coral ring in supplication to their developing alliance against man.

Spectacular work, I am anxious to see more of his species in the future:) I like the way you captured an air of authority with his pose and facial features in spite of his drab attire and coloring. The addition of a pipe was a nice touch; it does well to make him, ironically, more human. I'd love to see him in his papal attire.

Terrific. The inclusion of background narratives really help fire the imagination.

It's a religious symbol in this mythos. The little story that goes with The Prophet also up here on DA says a bit more in relation to it.
