(Art) The Holy Horror of Mike Franchina

Blending dieselpunk, medieval horror, and dark metal fantasy, Costa Mesa artist Mike Franchina has created an alternate earth where Catholic forces are locked in a never ending paranormal trench war with the armies of hell. He includes a short description with each character, only a few of which I’ve included below. You should go check out the full collection on his ArtStation page. Or better yet, support him on Patreon.

Trench Shrine

The trenches are considered sacred ground, where the armies of the Church defend against the attacks of the heretics. This Mk. 2 “Seraphim” shell, was blessed by a saint, and given a place of special reverence.
