Tiamut the Dreaming Celestial
There are essentially two versions of Tiamut: The Dreaming Celestial. This one is from the mid-80's, where I first encountered the story of The Dreaming Celestial in the pages of the 12-Part Eternals mini-series. The story involved a Deviant, Ghaur, attempting to tap into the energies of a "Dreaming Celestial" to become a godlike being, crush his enemies, and establish himself as master of all he surveyed. Y'know, the usual.
There is also a golden armored version who appeared for 2 pages in the original Jack Kirby Eternals series (Issue #18, if you're interested), and then made his appearance again in another Eternals series in the mid-2000's. And, since there are two versions, I will be doing the golden-armored Tiamut in my next post.
Here's the original pic. While he was drawn in the mini-series with two circular eyes and some lines across his face plate, I sorta liked the nebulous energy idea and gave his face a Kirby Crackle, instead.

STEP ONE: I used a blue lead 0.5mm mechanical pencil on 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock for the pencils.

STEP TWO: The inking was done with a fine point Sharpie Non-Bleed pen and a PITT Brush tip pen to fill in the black areas and add some line variation.

STEP THREE: I scanned the image into PhotoShop and colorized it with a MULTIPLY Layer, keeping the color scheme somewhat consistent to the previous Celestials entries I did for the Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe: REDUX EDITION.

This was done with pen-and-ink on 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" cardstock and colored in PhotoShop.
