Sapphire Mythos the Kelpie by Zephyros-Phoenix Sapphire Mythos the Kelpie by Zephyros-Phoenix
:iconcommentplz::icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:
EDIT: Recolored in new style

Here's another SA style of my Sonic character, Sapphire the Kelpie. Yes, a kelpie looks like a horse, but I instantly saw her as a shark-mermaid like creature.

Sapphire is the third eldest of the House of Mythos and hails from the Veil Catacombs, the secret underground cavern beneath her ancestral homeland. As a member of a powerful family of magic, Sapphire is gifted with the powers of hydrokinesis. She can manipulate all liquid forms of water and is capable of transforming from a land form (legs) to a sea form (tail). Though she prefers spending time in water, she is used to being on land. After her youngest sister Azure successfully defected from their brother Garnett's evil rule and goal for world destruction, Sapphire wished to follow suite. However, to keep her from leaving, Garnett set their sister Shamrock on fire. Sapphire was scarred by the event, but nowhere near as much as Shamrock was and stayed to protect Shamrock. Beautiful and mature, Sapphire is not one for careless action and she can easily adapt to most situations.

In photoshop, each layer has an opacity setting ranging from 0% to 100% with 0 being completely faded and 100 being flat and normal. Manipulating the level of opacity for a layer will give it's contents the appearance of transparency.

Ya know? I can actually see Sapphire living in an underwater city that looks like an ocean version of New York. Kinda like the city of Rapture in the game Bioshock.

Is it a selkie or a kelpie because I know that selkies are in mythology, but I have never heard of a kelpie. Selkies are basically creatures that were originally seals, but they eventually shed their skin to be reborn as a baby human or in this case a Mobian.

A kelpie is a water horse. I intended her to be more horse-like but plans changed when I was designing her.

Celtic folklore.

I know you like calling her a Kelpie, but maybe look up a Taniwha. She fits that more in design.

You know, a thought just occurred to me. She can control all forms of liquid water...so...well, if you've seen Avatar: The Last Air Bender, you might know that there was a water bender who could manipulate the water in the blood of other lifeforms, calling it blood bending. Creepy shit, you know. I wonder...can Sapphire do that too? The thought both fascinates me and sends chills down my spine.

Yeah I've seen the advanced waterbending techniques in Avatar and I suppose it's possible that Sapphire could manipulate water in those ways =P

The metal looking parts where her legs/tail begin are such a simple and awesome detail, though, I think the hair looks kinda bland in comparison with the rest of the design.

I copied the finished picture of the character, resized it on a new layer and set the layer at a lower opacity.
