the M'yon Rashi

a couple weeks ago i found myself randomly sketching one of the M'yon Rashi- the Strikers- from Tad Williams' excellent fantasy trilogy Memory, Sorrow and Thorn (they show up in part two of To Green Angel Tower). I liked how it turned out, so i drew the rest of them, and put the four separate images together in photoshop.
The M'yon Rashi are Sithi, and elf-like race, and they use those staves to knock down walls. I really liked designing their armour. Big shoulders! w00t!

wow, you know - I have often wondered why there isn't more Sithi fan art? I am so happy to have found yours! It's so detailed and lovely.

Wow, I can tell you had fun with the armor design! That's really good.

Nice to see such good work on the Sithi! You should do more from Memory, Sorrow and Thorn -- or at least more Sithi.

I like the faces, vaguely inhuman but not exaggeratedly so. I wonder if you could bring a bit more alienness into the features while still keeping it subtle...?

Anyway, well done!

It's an interesting challenge, and I think I could do it. These were all draw fairly small, so it's hard to get much detail across. I did do a picture of Amerasu Shipborn, which is larger. And yes, I should do more Sithi. Maybe Aditu...

I don't remember these guys, and I read the two parts of TGAT (my favorites in the series) only four years ago. Guess I'll have to review it.

Remember when the Sithi and the Hernysadharc lay seige to Naglimund? That's the part they show up in. (Forgive any spelling errors. I don't have the books on had for reference)

Thanks. It was a ton of fun designing all of them. I think I spent the better part of two weeks on all four of them.
