DARK HOPE

NOTES

Original lineart.

A part of the webcomic The Coming of the Towers, Dark Hope is the original concept for the character who later became Light Hope, as described in the Princes Of Power bible: a pair of baleful red eyes, floating in a corridor of infinite darkness (source: Bustatoons' blog).

In our version, Dark Hope's corridor also hosts various mystical objects, such as mirrors and goblets and armours, from which Dark Hope draws magic and strength.
A sinister counterpart to Light Hope, Dark Hope lives by a pragmatic philosophy that prefers results over principles, and sees compromise with the enemy as the only way to end a war.

After spending centuries in the oblivion of his own Dark Corridor, locked somewhere in the metaphysical depths of Etheria, Dark Hope prepares to return, concomitantly with the appearance of the Towers of Etheria.
Is this going to happen by chance, or is there a relationship between his return and the twisted future of the Great Master Horde?

Check out Pretheria Darkhope to learn more about this character.

DarkHope's physical form is known as Dark Shriek:

This is a very cool concept!
I imagine the eyes move through the corridor by those beams of red light which touch the sides and floor.
You did a great job with the graphics and those eyes too. Looks even spookier now.

And yes, I can see Dark Hope use his "tendrils" to move through the corridor-- it's an incredibly creepy image.
