Old Beginnings by chimeraic Old Beginnings by chimeraic
My entry. I didn't have much time to work on this as I have... work.

This manifestation of a personality is standing at the bottom of the cold abyss of consciousness, having torn off its old, tainted, head, and the strips of "flesh" stretch and twist into a blossom which then opens up to reveal a new head, supposedly ready for a fresh start. But if it's the same person, is it really a new state of mind? The new head already shows signs of corruption. Is change even real? The struggle for dominance is the only thing that's assured. The benevolence of the personalities remain ambiguous.

Regarding the design, I wanted it to have a bit of a sickly feel, it's skin made up of winding, elastic strips, kind of link rubbery bacon. Or would beef jerky be more accurate? I also incorporated a plant-like feel, the appendages in the back ended up looking like orchids, maybe they'll unwind from the edges to reveal fledgling personalities as well. :)

Feel free to download! EDIT: Accidentally disabled downloads, it's okay now. :D
