Grave Wax Siren Concept

Character concept loosely inspired by themes from the game Deadhaus Sonata.

The Grave Wax Siren was a conceptual solution to a given brief that asked for a visual response to the question "What horrors lurk beneath the Ocean's surface?"

The Siren is a blend of a Lovecraftian and Gothic themes influenced by Sirens from mythology - she mothers the large creature that she has morphed with, which acts as a grotesque extended womb for alien entities. The Siren lures sailors to their demise in the ocean, where the grave wax that formulates on their warm bodies act as a vital life source for the Siren and her children.

I really enjoyed working on this project and undertaking the research to flesh out this grisly design.
