Thanatos... Phobos... Deimos
Here's some quickie character designs. These are going to be costumes at some point... part of a ritual I'm designing. Thanatos is the Greek daemon of death... Phobos is panic... Deimos is fear. It's been useful personifying these ideas and making them interact. It's an effective way to understand your own feelings and where they come from. Plus when you make them cartoons you can almost mock these negative feelings, making it easier for you to get a handle on them so you can become more self aware and less likely to unknowingly become an emotional monster. That's the power of mythology folks.
