Suppuration Core by Vaporeon249 Suppuration Core by Vaporeon249
The title is based after the song from Kotoko, "Suppuration -Core-". Suppuration is an extremely gross concept by my interpretation. Basically it can be loosely described as an oozy wound, discharging pus. Title of choice when I have my Mewthree, Mewblade standing about, all cut up and dripping all over the place.

To be clear, it's not pus, it's blood. One of the mistakes I made was not really thinking about what a titanium composed skeleton would do in terms of blood products. Our blood is red because of iron oxide, it's the primary method of oxygen exchange. Bright red means more oxygen, more iron oxide. Titanium almost always is available as titanium oxide. We use it in everything possible from paint to toothpaste to give it a bold, white color. For Mewblade that technically would mean her blood would vary from a light grey, to a brilliant white. (Though let's assume that hers was made red so it wouldn't scare the living daylights out of people.) It makes for a really gross visual concept, and I wanted to always play with it.

Straight CG, since I'm kind of sick of playing with inks and such. Happy amounts of easy airbrushing, and I get the end result. The blood looks incredibly weird and out-of-place and I think Mewblade probably should have more of an expression at all, since that has to hurt. Maybe it's self-inflicted, she does that, so it could partially excuse that part. Strange contrasting image, but I need my surrealism from time to time.

Photoshop CS4.

Did she do that to herself?

Most likely.

She generally doesn't appreciate herself all that much, and sometimes she doesn't like herself either.

I see. She's got some self-loathing going on then?

Mewblade is more likely to loathe her duties than herself. Depending on timeline, she was using self mutilation as a distraction. Adult in some ways, a child in others, she's has had poor coping skills. If she's not bond to a specific timeframe, then it really would be a show of her indifference (and to prove a point to someone else), but either way, she would be doing it because she's in a foul mood, not technically because she loathes her body.

I see, that makes sense.

Sorry for the typos. Rereading it, it hardly makes sense to me.

Less silvery than silver is. All blood is metallic to some extent, but it's never going to be shiny or anything.
