I Like the Pretty Eyes
Yes that’s right, With any dreamer crew you want to have Coppelius… The idea behind the Coppelius is what I really like with the tentacled, creature who comes for your eyes fits in really well with my love of all things Lovecraft. Just a bit on the images that I get from this figure… He does fit into the nightmare idea seeming to be a cross between The Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth and a Lovecraftian nightmare. Also if you do some research on the name Coppelius it’s from a German Short Story called Der Sandmann (The Sandman) written by E. T. A. Hoffmann (see the link to the Guild) who it was said would steal the eyes of children who wouldn’t go to bed and feed them to his own children who lived in the moon. So how can you go wrong with something like that which I can use both in my Guild when I get Hoffman and the Neverborn… So enough with my love of the horror stuff and here’s some more mobile phone photos for you to look. I didn’t want to fall back on to the same old colours that I’ve been doing so when looking through my paints I can up with Nauseating Blue for the pants, a thin mix for the blue skin and Vermin Brown for the coat. Even though he can be taken with the Guild I didn’t want him to be in Guild colours. I also went with a couple of different Reds for his inner tentacles and mouth going from a Mechrite Red through to final Highlights with Blood Red.
