Relic Concept - II by Aikurisu Relic Concept - II by Aikurisu
A blade of Kyrathi design; such craftsmanship is thought ancient by the time nelrikind first colonised Elshanae’s eastern lands. This particular one was discovered even centuries after that by archaeologists loyal to human courts, and came into the possession of House Yalimere’s Prince Azul, ‘til the sacking of his manse in Marlenkai. It is unknown if the blade was lost in the fires that decimated such a place to ash, but it certainly was a relic of the past that many would have sought to have in their private collections... seeing as it's age predates well before human or nelri arrival in the Middle Realms.

This was a quickie. Only took roughly three hours, but I’m comfortable with how the design turned out. See, I’ve got mind to draw a kyrathi character soon, but it’s more a matter of how than when… so I decided to draw something related to them for now.

If a sword could look evil, this one certainly does :O

lol, seeing as you mentioned it, when I was nearing this one's completion, I was thinking of good ol' Soul Edge to a point...

This piece is very reminiscent of H.R. Giger (at least to me). Was there inspiration from his works for this?

Its a very nice piece that seems quite sinister. I almost imagine a thin sheen of venom on it.

Kudos!

Thanks! =D

As for being inspired by Giger? I'm still fairly oblivious to his works, so no. Not really sure what I was inspired by, but at one stage I was thinking of something dark, similar to what a drow would wield. And by the time I nearly finished it, my mind began to wander about what would happen if Soul Edge and Calibur somehow became entwined into one creation...

Ahh...

Giger was the artist that inspired the Xenomorphs from Alien (Aliens, Alien III, Alien resurrection)

That's what it reminded me of. Perhaps some civilization that worshiped them and sought to emulate their form in their ceremonial crafts. :D Just an idea.

If the Kyrathi were influenced by anyone, it would likely be some aspect from Sinalazul. That and just their side of culture born from their birth mother's twisted ideals...

Thanks! I guess I'm just getting faster with drawing blades now, since the last few works have been entirely about them. I'm thinking there will be many more to come too... lol.
