* Symbol is based on the Wheel of Fortune

* Wings are based on locusts', due to the Ten Plagues of Egypt. Decorated with stylised 2s. ETA: OH SNAP I FORGOT ABOUT BEES

* Purple is a funny choice, now that I think about it.

* See here for how the hood works.

* A story:

Two days ago - start drawing and ask around about what colour Sollux's eyes would be now. Decided on black to keep with "doom" and to be boring.

Yesterday - Sollux: Wake up.
Me: . . . How . . .
Friends: ARE YOU PSYCHIC

Today -
Friends: ARE YOU HUSSIE
Me: What.
Friends: YOU ARE HUSSIE'S DREAMSELF

* Aaand it turns out the Mage of Doom isn't so gloomy after all. 0u0

Every time I come across these I'm wowed at how close some of these designs are to the released canon look. Like, I agree with your friends. You are an alternate Hussie.

ooo I like your mage outfit best, I've been looking for a good look because I took a really long and philosophical quiz to find what my god tier would be and I got Mage of Heart :33 (I felt the cat face was necessary ^^)

Excuse me, can I use this please? This is the best Mage outfit for Homestuck I've ever seen not to mention I was having trouble deciding weather or not to be a Mage of Space, but this looks like an awesome tiebreaker

Again, beautiful art but I'm pretty sure that the troll's physical flaws would be fixed when they reach god tier, just like Aradia?

I based it on the bit of dialogue that Sollux gave that I pasted in the description, which is that he had to go blind for him to properly take on the ascept of "doom". Either way, it was just a bit of fun. No one knows what he'd be like at god tier except Hussie.

I'm very fond of your god-tiers series in general; they strike me as near-perfect interpretations of how they would look in canon. Your Sollux is my favourite of the set, if only because of how it happened to match my thoughts on his god-tier attire; the posing is also pretty much perfect. That said, while I think purple is ideal for him, I'm thinking it'd work better with darker purples; but eh, that's just me.

In short, yes. Hell yes.

LOL @ your friends asking you if you're Hussie. This is so awesome, though. I have to say, out of all the GTs you've done, this one has to be my favorite. I think Nepeta would be second, though. Love this so much, and I just kinda' saw the purple as red and blue combined, seeing as those were his sig. colors before he went blind. It makes even more sense to me like that. Absolutely looooving this. :J

A fabulous job! I came here right after I finished reading the updates, and just kinda let my jaw hang open in shock and awe for a moment. Very well done, I am super-impressed. And the reasoning behind the wings and color schemes always impress me!

They're supposed to be gaiters actually! ...Which are essentially the same as spats. :doh: I'm probably going to swap them with the Knights' whenever I get around to doodling redesigns/alternate designs.
