Well I been out of the game for a while. Lack of funds combined with laziness. But just to show you guys i'm still in the game I did this for fun.

Now you Green Lantern fans know Sinestro Corpsman Low of Space Sector 3308. Low is the most dangerous parasite in the universe. He can suck every drop of blood from nearly every being in a matter of seconds. Low replicates by laying "eggs" in the bodies of those he feeds on. Up to a thousand parasitic slugs can be born from a single carcass.

Now most people who would do this custom would do a simple paint job and call this guy Red Lantern Low. But those of you who know me know I like original characters and I like coming up with unique backstories.

The first of Low's parasitic slugs to grow to full maturity. He learned what he was and who his father was. He took the name Praeteritus, which loosely translates to "Forgotten". And his rage is fueled by the simple fact that his father abandoned him. He was chosen by a red power ring and became a member of the Red Lantern Corps. Atrocitus chose to bathe Praeteritus in the blood ocean. His conciousness was increased and he is a loyal servant of the Red Lantern Corps. Praeteritus serves Atrocitus and his Red Lantern Corps but with his increased conciousness he secretly plans to find his father and kill him.




Base Figure: DC Universe Classics Skallox/Nite-Lik.
Head: DC Universe Classics Low head with a repaint at the neck line to match the costume.
Hands: DC Universe Classics Low hands with a repainted ring.
Blood: Various pieces from an Iron Man 3.5in figure.

You can also see I have never been much with backgrounds but here I chose to put a comic book behind him for a different look.
