Reminds me a bit too strongly of the Swayali, though the details on this one are great. The magic definitely echos of water, and the glow snake eyes are a nice touch. Great job, yet again.

Why don't you produce something mediocre so I can stop praising you? :P

btw I'd love 1 more god, idc which. I've got the 7 that you have done so far made into a wallpaper and could really use one more to even it out to 4 per screen. A selfish request though. Do what inspires you as it will be a superior work.

Another great one. 

But it raises a question for me that may be meaningless in the grand scheme of things.  Somn, your other random Cishaurim was also shaved-headed.  We don't actually get a detail that the Cishaurim all shave their heads do we?  I know that Moenghus does.  It's mentioned several times during the long final sequence with Kellhus.  But I just wondered what made you go with that look for the other Cish too.

Huh, I had to dig for it.  TTT, Chapter 16, Shimeh, the waterbearer in the tunnels is described as having a shaved pate.  Then later, Yalgrota had grabbed Fanfarokar (a Cishaurim primary) and "hammered the shaven skull into sopping ruin."  There might be more, but it's late and that's probably sufficient.   :)

Thanks for the comments, guys.

Oh, damn.  Well, that's more evidence than I remembered.  Thanks, Somn. 

But Meppa has hair as white as snow-capped mountains, so it's a bit unclear.

Yeah, Meppa...  when first reading he had long white hair, I was like 'Whaaaaaaaaaat....?  He's not Cishaurim!'  I guess it's not a sin to grow your hair out when there are no other Cish left to call you a hippie.  lol

Maybe nobody has told Meppa that he is supposed to be bald.  He seems somewhat... forgetful, after all.

Thanks for the new wallpaper btw, Somna.  Bellisimo!

Som this is awesome! I really like the swirling on the cloak, seems to add a lot of depth to the image.

Really, really good work Som.

Yeah I always imagined the Cish as bald and was never sure why. I guess I read the "shaven" descriptions and mind filled in the blanks.

Is that a heart in his hand? Gruesome.

Mature content is on!

ETA:  I wonder if it only put mature content on because of "most violent of all men" in the description.

Looks good Somna. The little tendrils off the front, for whatever reason, make it seem alive.
