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.
