crappy sketches for not blackbird! The first one was the original concept when I started to work on it on photoshop. The idea was supposed to be the sky crying tears of blood but I keep having trouble with the movement and placement of the eyes and ended up drawing the second picture first haha. AND THEN PHOTOSHOP DECIDED TO CRASH WHEN I ONLY SAVED ONE VERSION so I had to redraw them so they look like crap lol ):
The second picture is one of the many gods?spirits? created by the person who took the high priest’s memories. The spirit’s name is Kanzeon, because its abilities is to see the things happening in the world with its countless eyes, similar to the bodhisattva that she’s named after (maybe better known as Guan Yin/Guan Shi Yin (观世音） but this spelling sucks ass). This spirit doesn’t exist anymore though and not many people know her story. My high priest character’s abilities comes from/is the same as this spirit’s, and because she doesn’t remember her name and didn’t want to randomly get a new one, she lets people call her whatever they like. Kanzeon was one of the nicknames people gave her because of her abilities and it just stuck/spread, so it basically became her name. The bodhisattva uses her outreach of senses to see/hear the sufferings of the people in the world and… help them? or share the burden of pain; at first I was going to make Kanzeon that kind of figure but I decided not to in the end, because I want to keep the kind of dense personality that her RO counterpart has, and that would be difficult if she’s too strong LOL.
