Bloodstone Family Portrait by Amythest621 Bloodstone Family Portrait by Amythest621
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:
So this marks the beginning of my onslaught of uploads, for tonight. I finished my family portrait picture (naturally) and I have decided to upload the seven siblings separately because it's hard to see the detail on them, and I worked a long time on them, and I want to, and I can! So yay. I'll write a bit about each of the siblings in their descriptions, and I'll post the links here so they are easily accessible (Since Marcus and Marah already have bios, their separate pictures likely won't have much written in the description).

And ayup, I didn't give Mary her own page, so I'll prattle on about her here. The Bloodstone's mommy is Queen Mary I of England (which the legend of Bloody Mary is based upon) and is the proud mother of many miscarriages. Her inability to have a child, as well as, I've been told, "her harsh and brutal purging of Protestants during her reign as Queen" (Thank you ~Tsukiko-koe!), is where Mary got the moniker "Bloody" Mary from. The Bloodstone siblings are her miscarriages (I don't actually know how many she had, but I like the number seven, so I ran with it :D artistic freedom FTW!). She also had a number of false pregnancies and desperately wished for a child, which is why to call upon the ghost of Bloody Mary one claims to have her baby. It's said that she arrives (via mirror usually) to take her baby back and, in return, shows the face of the summoner's future spouse or the face of the grim reaper if the summoner is destined to die before marriage. Over time the legend twisted, until Bloody Mary began "killing" (violent disposition anyone?) her summoners in vicious bloody ways usually tearing their eyes out. I like to think that the reason for this change was caused by Mary's distress that her summoners didn't actually have her baby (babies?). Naturally, her ghost became justifiably enraged, and the rest is history. So the moral of the story here is: Don't mess with mad ghosts; they get dangerous.

The family goes (from left to right) on the top row: Marah, Marcus, Marius, Malachi, and Mae
On the bottom row: Makenna, (Mother-Mistress) Mary, and Marina

This should go without saying but please do NOT use this artwork or these characters unless you ask explicitly ask me. This is not meant to be a base so please do not trace or recolor it. I'll be disappoint. +5 awesome points if you get the reference
