Leviathan - King of the Ocean by HectorHimeros Leviathan - King of the Ocean by HectorHimeros
DEMON MASTER VERSION
*********************
Levi Leviathan will show up in my upcoming commercial M/M series Daemon Dominus (Demon Master) as one of the demons that will be caught and imprisoned inside the enchanted book: the Lemegeton. I envision him as the first "merman" because he was the first aquatic beast created by Jewish deity. Leviathan is the demon of water element. He can be summoned to battle other demons.

Version 0 hectorhimeros.deviantart.com/a…
This is the first ever version I ever made for Levi Leviathan using PhotoImpact. My Photoshop skill at that time was zero. All I could do was doing collages. It's mocked in a so-called humor forum, even used as mockery avatar by a member. Some DA members also criticized the color of the fin ears. Therefore, I eventually moved this art to Scrap section because I thought of it as a total failure - hence, the term version 0.

Version 1 fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/i/201…
It was actually born from a mistake. Years ago when my photoshop skill was low, I tried an online tutorial Beauty In The Lake www.psdbox.com/wp-content/uplo… I did the male version but ended up with version 1 of Leviathan. To my surprise, many people liked it.

Version 2 fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/i/201…
I redid it by changing the background and adding merman tail because I envision Leviathan as the first merman. I moved the setting from calm lake to raging stormy sea. To reflect the change, I also renamed it from God of the Lake to King of the Ocean.

Version 3 fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/i/201…
I changed the model because I wanted to use this as commercial cover for my own story.

Version 4 fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/i/201…
I decided to create a more dramatic story-telling by changing the ship's direction and multiplying them. With this new composition, it seemed as if Leviathan had been chased by a fleet of ships.

Version 5 is the one you're looking at. I added the fin-ears, just as I originally envisioned how Leviathan would look like. I also replaced some stocks with commercial ones because I wanted to give this art a new look.



DEVIL'S COLLECTOR VERSION
*************************
Levi Leviathan is an original character from my gay novel Devil's Collector. Leviathan is one of the four Crown Princes of Hell. According to Jewish myth, Leviathan was created as a couple by Yahweh but after his 'wife' was slain by Yahweh, he switched side and supported Sataniel.

Levi has three forms: human, demon, monster. As a human, he assumes a handsome man's form with the name Levi. In demon form, he is a man with blue fin ears and large fish tail. In monster form, he is a giant water serpent. In my story, Levi's demon form inspired the creation of mermaid myth. Levi often seduced sailors, however because they were too ashamed to admit they made love to fish-tailed man, they lied about Levi's gender. Thus, the myth of mermaid was born.

Trust me, I HATE watermarks as well, along with small-sized arts. If you followed my works before July 2011, you'd notice that I always posted full-sized 800x1200 arts without watermarks. But some of my works have been vandalized by some idiots in a so-called humor forum. And my DA profile was attacked for a week by anti-gays and anti-me. I almost closed down my account! Since the bloody online incident, I lock all my arts from outsiders, resize, and watermark them. I'm sorry about the watermark but I must protect my arts from vandalism. I hope u understand.

I don't blame you for getting frustrated with the method they used to make that model blue O_o I've never seen that... weird. You did better, anyway, that tutorial was a couple yellow eyes away from making that model look like she belonged in Avatar. Then again, you can't see her eyes :O! xD
I like how the water glows here ;D

It looks good, though I would recomend toning down on the layers. Not the opacity, but just don't make so meny layers of different pictures that don't quite go together. Like the splash in the forground dosen't seem to fit very well into the others. Also try making the moon a little smaller. Makes it more tastefull. The guy though... SEXY!

Thanx for the suggestion. Yes, the splash is very tricky. I can't seem to find the right shape >< As for the moon, it's deliberate to exaggerate the scene.

I guess the moon kind of goes with the style then. Keept it up keeping me up. Hehe.
