Portrait: Alton Sterling Jr. by Cei-Ellem Portrait: Alton Sterling Jr. by Cei-Ellem
"I have many names, some of which are very infamous. For now, I would prefer that you simply call me Alton."

With the redux of Edge of Thorns, Alton of course needed a bit of an upgrade.

Can you spot what it is that makes Nathan a little uncomfortable with him?

This is Lumiel in his human form. Fun fact: the glasses aren't purely aesthetic, but he doesn't need them to see. Hmmm...

EDIT: Made some major changes to this, namely new lights (his hands still look pale), new eyes, new backdrop, and minor tweaks in Photoshop.

EDIT AGAIN: More lighting tweaks, and I finally got a model for his necklace.

AND AGAIN: After rendering this guy, Alton just looked horrible next to him. So, he got a total revamp, and new hair (same model as the other guy's but styled a little different).

ONCE AGAIN, EDIT: TONS of changes, including new clothes, slightly different pose, new eyes, new lighting, new hair (finally found one I really like for him), and some serious tweaks to his appearance. Maybe I'll do a side-by-side of the older versions I still have. This is by far the best improvement and looks most like the way I envision him.

LAST TIME, I SWEAR: Darkened his hair so it looked more black/less gray, gave him gray pants, and gave more shape to his glasses. I swear, I'm done with this... at least until I get him better clothes ^^;

OK, I LIED: New skin, new hair. That's it. SO MUCH BETTER!

FINALLY FINISHED!: I finally got a model that matched the clothes he's supposed to wear. Those, along with new lighting, absolutely complete my revisions of Alton. NO MORE!

Thank you. Considering this is, what, the eighth time I've fixed this render, I hope it looks at least decent ^^;. I love my character, but getting him to look right was hard.

Nathan finds him unsettling because Alton is just a bit too sexy for him to handle.
I MEAN NO HIS GLASSES ARE UPSIDE DOWN.
...I MEAN NO HIS NAILS ARE A LITTLE TOO LONG.
........I MEAN HIS EYES. YEAH. THAT'S WHAT I MEANT TO SAY. They're so PIERCING. 8D;
