  1. Zelly: it is inspired by a mantis shrimp! Good eye!
  2. From the album Natural History of Roshar

    This one would be a tall giraffe like creature that would only be able to live in valleys that are less windy on Roshar.
  3. Hey Elend, thank you! Do you mind telling me what about that one appeals you?
  4. From the album Natural History of Roshar

    Early exploratory sketches of what thunderclasts might've looked like from descriptions.
  5. Thank you~
  6. From the album Natural History of Roshar

    Early ideas of large, land-bound crustacean creatures that would fit perfectly in Rosharan world.
  7. Hey Ark! Thank you !
  8. Are there flying insects like cockroaches and dragonflies, or grasshoppers on Roshar? How big are the leggers and amphibian-things? Are they small enough to be eaten by something the size of a Cardinal or Chickadees?
  9. Good thoughts and thanks for pulling those references out! This discussion has given me a better image to aim for... thank you folks again!
  10. @hoiditthroughthegrapevine Thank you! They've all been fun to do

    When I first read the description for this area, I immediately imagined they're some kind of alpine version of the deep sea hydrothermal vents - aka the white or black chimneys. I love those bizarre deep sea things, and have been trying to envision how would those hydrothermal vents look like when combined with the Alps. It's really tricky, and the vertical aspect of those vents makes it really hard to see where the Horneaters would put any sort of city or crops fields on. As I keep researching, I eventually came across alpine hot lakes in the Andes mountains, and decided to change direction and go with something like an extinct conical volcano chain that has turned into lakes. The imagery would be more familiar, and the slopes would mean imaginable cities and civilization such as the Machu Picchu. I decided to try and do the phototexture workflow in pursuit of that Skyrim look. It's not there yet, but can't expect mastery after 1 week!

    1 of the many preliminary sketch pages for the different looks of various axehound breeds I was thinking of doing a while ago before I got busy. T_T
  13. @Wyndlerunner Hahaha, thanks mate, I would totally be down for that even if it's 5, 10 years down the road.
  14. @Zellyia Thank you! There is a bigger size without the text over lay here (I just thought smaller size could hide whatever mistake I made better :P) : https://www.artstation.com/artwork/y9oLn
  15. @Chaos and @Kidpen Thank you glad you like this

  18. Nice! Is it a screenshot of a 3D asset?
  19. Thank you, hoid and Pessimistspren!
  20. What a naturalist on their down time might drink to relax and eat their meal at inns. ... About the designs: The Horneater ones got strong Japanese influence because the first thing that popped in my mind's eyes upon hearing the word "Horneater White", was Shirakabe Gura. Because of the word "white".
  21. (4 year old necro!) I... I like Pattern's voice acting.... I thought his weird speech pattern adds to his character, which I wouldn't have came up with in my head from reading the text.
  22. @Aurora the Rioter Thank you! @Xtafa Could be, could be! Did not think of that! I have an earlier carapace critter that could be a legger or something. @Zellyia Mission accomplished! Thank you~

    This is my first impression of chull when I listened to the audiobook which came with no illustrations. I imagined them as short, stout, camel-like giant crayfish with spaced-out expressions. If not chulls, this could be some other cremlings inhabiting the wide plains, nibbling on little moss that has sprung to life after a high storm.
