Polychora

24, drowning in dysphoria and will never be free of it unless I can upload my brain to a virtual world but I don't want Elon Musk to delete me in favour of a bitcoin mine.

Full body view of a single character smiling smugly at the viewer

A Smug Smile

I think I've mentioned before that smug expression are one of my favourite things to draw.

Well that's still true!

digital full-body art of a deity oc named yasha. yasha has tan skin, long platinum blonde hair, and with two dark, greyish-purple horns that curve upwards and backwards. instead of having legs, they have many tentacles that spiral around each other, staring at the hips. the tentacles are periwinkle where they meet the torso, changing to pink and then yellow. they glow softly at the very tips. they also have two sets of semi-transparent wings that fade from periwinkle at the edges to pink to a glowing yellow color near their body. another set of wing-like feathers with the same color scheme are attached to their ears. they're not wearing any clothes, but they have these gold bands with inscriptions around their neck and wrists. three diamond-shaped gems are embedded in their chest, with the middle one being the biggest and two at the sides being smaller but of the same size. their eyes are the same color as their wings, but the skin around their eyes has two vertical scar-like lines painted in the same color as their horns.digital full-body in a chibi style of an oc doing a shrug with their eyes closed while a wispy spirit looking thing emerges from their back. the oc has jaw-length light blue hair with two hair clips. they're wearing greyish-bluish metal armor with dark blue accents and light yellow sigils. the wispy spirit is yasha holding up both fists and grinning almost evilly. their fists have silver brass knuckles on them.

i was watching this anime on netflix and there was this evil pope man who, when questioned about his use of violence in spite of his faith, straight up busted out some brass knuckles and said "i'm not doing anything, it's god, he guides my fists"

it was honestly the funniest fucking thing so now i have an oc who's supposedly a pacifist because of their faith but beats up people with brass knuckles and says it's god's will

except it's literally god's will because they're getting possessed

More worldbuilding!

I tend to have difficulty writing up fantasy pantheons because I really want to duplicate the super complicated Greek mythology set up. I will get my stupidly complicated mythology written one day, but for now I'll settle for a simpler idea that I will now share with you. This is a pretty half-formed idea, I don't have names for anyone, so bare with me.

This was inspired by two things. Firstly, I'm currently worldbuilding a fantasy world with some pinched concepts from other fantasy series, and I just needed a thinly-veiled Meridia from Elder Scrolls in there. Meanwhile, the Doom series recently introduced Heaven in opposition to Hell and has hinted that they aren't the only supernatural realms, and I've been having theories. Finally, I saw this beautiful set of Skyrim screenshots, and decided to base my forming ideas around this.

So there are four gods, but each has a positive and negative aspect that can be viewed as functionally separate individuals for a total of eight. Further godly beings exist, but are all aspects of one of the Quaternity. Their gender is ambiguous and differs regionally. The four/eight gods are:

  1. First is the thinly-veiled Meridia ripoff and generally the "heavenly" one. In their Positive Aspect they are God of Society, Life, Light, and the Sun and Sky. In their Negative Aspect they are God of Manipulation, Demand, Greed, and Pride.
  2. Second is based generally off nature spirits. In their Positive Aspect they are God of Nature, Sex, and Agriculture. In their Negative Aspect they are God of Disease, Decay, and Madness.
  3. Third is based off pop-culture depictions of Hell. In their Positive Aspect they are God of Industry, Craft, and Wealth. In their Negative Aspect they are God of War, Destruction, and Slavery.
  4. Fourth is the spooky eldritch one. In their Positive Aspect they are God of Magic, the Ocean, and Knowledge. In their Negative Aspect they are God of Corruption, Oblivion, and the Undead (which are the general nasties of the setting).

Still got a lot to flesh out, but at least I've gotten the basics of it down tonight.
