Eshonai's Victory

Eshonai's only canon picture is the chapter header icon in her PoVs.  She looked like a tank!!!  And because I was inspired by the Predator movie series, I draw her as huge and physically imposing relative to the other characters.  But she still has a human-like face that isn't fully monster, even in Stormform.  I tried to make it expressive, but clear that she's not human, hence the creepy glowing eyes. 

This is my impression of a chrysalis and gemheart.  In my imagination, they were giant glowing, roughly faceted chunks of crystal that had mysterious flickering lights coming from the inside.  And the "violet ichor" of chasmfiend blood was like a goopy slime that dripped out when you pulled the gem out of the chrysalis.  Who knows, maybe it's really the texture of purple ketchup.

I love this depiction of Eshonai! I've been procrastinating on trying to draw her, or any Parshendi for that matter, because I feel like they're so hard to capture! At least in my mind. You did a great job!

I think it's because Parshendi have so many different forms, and a Parshman/dullform too, so it's overwhelming to pick which type, and then design it so it matches the book description if you want to be accurate about it.  That's pretty much why I just stick to drawing Stormform/Warform because it's the best described.  The glowing eyes are pretty cool too.

I've so far been drawing Eshonai as a giant bipedal alien-looking thing.
