INTERVIEW WITH SUPER EVIL ARTIST NOXII
“I combined the raven and the starry aspects to show how Celeste is the Star Queen with the Storm Queen’s power. The stars around her skirt show that she’s so full of cosmic power now that it’s leaking out uncontrollably. I looked at a lot of high fashion feather collars; I wanted her to look modest but still provocative. The lace on the skirt helps transition the feathers to the leather and makes it look regal. My favorite part is her extravagant black organza hair decoration. She has built a black hole onto her default staff. She’s holding onto what she used to be, but now she has the power of creation and destruction.
“I don’t think she’s evil; I think she’s pragmatic. She thinks she’s doing the right thing. She may burn some bridges, but the people close to her know how compassionate she is. Vox will probably try to help her see why what she’s doing isn’t good.
“With every splash, I experiment with painting techniques and challenge myself to amp it up. I learned a lot from painting the metal in Bonecruncher Phinn’s splash art. My faces are usually more cartoony, but Celeste’s hair and face are soft. I chose a dynamic pose with a symmetrical composition to emphasize Star Queen Celeste’s power.”
