Understood. :)

I would like to see Kelmomas and the beetle crouching before the statue of Ajokli, or Esmenet just before she hears the Fanim war drums, her chains and dead Maithanet at her feet, WLW at her back and courtiers kneeling before her.

Both powerful scenes - I suspect there would be too much background work involved in the second - but if they strike your fancy, would love to see them.

Christ, that False Sun piece is incredible man. That's a tough thing to visualize too, really tough, but you pulled off a great interpretation. You keep topping yourself! Definitely one of my favorites.

Great job with TFS. Maybe one day you'll get paid for your tsa art ;)  hell maybe I'll commission my own set of tsa dust jacket art from you. Or you could print them on a canvas and sell them on eBay, see if you can get some $$.

I can see him doing a "World of R. Scott Bakker's Second Apocalypse" book.

Amazing, Somn.  It's so satisfying to see TSA brought to life like this.

I finally figured out that the descriptions and depictions here of the Inchoroi remind me of ancient Egyptian head ornamentation, including the Atef, Deshret, Hedjet, and Pschent. Examples:

They were worn to identify with various gods. I don't recall any groups or individuals in TSA that wear anything like that which might identify a past or present association with the Inchoroi, but keep an eye out!

I don't know where I got this impression, but I feel like Aurang and Aurax must look like one of those demons in early Christian artwork.  Something in this style:

Stunning.  Absolutely stunning, Somnambulist.  Please, keep it up...  Bakker or his publishers will have no choice but to commision your art at some point.

Pretty much speechless at this point Somm. I think you really zeroed in over time on an amazing interpretation of the Inchoroi.

For some reason though, no matter how hard I try, I always think of them as black in my head like reading. I think it comes from the H.R. Giger imagery and the association with Alien.

It's pretty much impossible to choose a favorite.  If pressed, I'd probably go with the Diurnal or some with the depictions of the Gnosis, but they're all amazing. 

I'd love to see you take a stab at creating Iyokus if you dare, Somn.
