Cnaiur

http://princeofnothing.wikia.com/wiki/File:Skiotha.png

Are they both Cnaiur, or is the second one Skiotha himself? They're both fantastic, but the second illustration is like a perfect rendering of my own mental image of Cnaiur (both in literal physicality and atmospheric tone). Great execution.

I really love this thread, guys. I'd kill to see some interpretations of a complete Inchoroi and some Sranc/Bashrag as well (I'm a total creature freak, especially when they're as interesting as those in TSA). I do have one drawing I did a while ago, being essentially what my idea of what a god might "look like" in this universe (be sure to zoom-in for detail if possible...this was kinda my idea for how the God of Gods might appear once "awoken", if such a thing can even be visualized): http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/050/6/6/monad_rising_by_francisbuck-d39y8yn.jpg

I imagined him being realized out of geometric/mathematical "energy" in the Outside, thus the star-like imagery around the form, and also the condensation (cephalization?) around the head, being the focus of complexity.

And here's another -- much simpler -- image of what I imagined a god might look like: http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/050/b/8/the_demiurge_by_francisbuck-d39y984.jpg

I'm partial to the idea of them only barely seeming humanoid. I actually have some Sranc drawings, but I've yet to upload them. May do so in the future.


Seriously though, I hope folks keep posting here. This stuff is great. A potential illustrated encyclopaedia of Earwa is like a dream of mine.

the second image of Cnaiur is amazing. It makes me think that Cnaiur is the darkness that comes before Kellhus. :-p

Agreed, it's really phenomenal. Bakker should start including artwork in his novels. It's so rarely done, but I think it could honestly add so much.

The No-God wins the thread. Amazing.

Quinthane, I like your tag.

Also, FB, way to crash the thread :). Nice art. I'd definitely volunteer time to make a encyclopaedic companion to TSA.

Yes. the harrowing image of dread Mog-Pharau came forth with such intensity, such finality that, verily i feared for the souls of of our online community, that we'd be lost in his whirlwind, that we'd start using words like 'verily', and that none of you guys would be able to get pregnant.

so i took a break, uploaded it and looked at porn for the rest of the night.

everyone's good, right? souls and whatnot?

wonder if Bakker'd initially named the weapon that would kill the dread Whirlwind the 'Road-Runner Spear'....then changed it to the Heron Spear.

Nice, bro!  I love this one.  The musculature is great.

I feel like there are a few different styles that clash in that drawing. Still love it though.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

This is awesome.  I love the abstract coupled with anthropomorphism.

Lol, I just found it funny that you've been here for relatively longer than some of the other members and only now dropping your artistic prowess on us.

Wicked, Somnambulist. Hmm... this is all testing my lack of artistic talent or skill but I wonder how one could draw that distorted grimace of the Sranc.
