ANI: Ellimist, Crayak, + Drode by Monster-Man-08 ANI: Ellimist, Crayak, + Drode by Monster-Man-08
The nearly all-powerful forces of good and evil, the Ellimist and Crayak are locked in a game of control over the welfare of the entire galaxy, their pawns being anything from single creatures to entire alien species. The Ellimist plays to ensure all life can live and grow, while Crayak to destroy.

The Drode is the minion of Crayak, a vile being in his own right 'blessed' with a fraction of his master's power. Although the Drode is totally loyal, Crayak is willing to replace his minion for a better one in a heartbeat.

BOOK: various, The Ellimist Chronicles gives perhaps the best look (and origins), Animorphs #48 - The Return has a good bit with Crayak and Drode

I wish this could have been an epic episode for a Spongebob crossover (art style reminds me of him). Lovely graphics.

i like the ships in the Ellimist's collection, and i absolutely love the big red evil eye of Crayak, it looks sinister and alien, like the technological patterns in Crayak's iris and it's "satanic" looking pupil.

Okay, I know the "boomerang", Pool, Bug, and Blade Yeerk ships, the Andalite Dome and fighter ships, what I think are the Howlers' ships, The Dog-like Pemalite ship, what looks like the MCQ3, Crayak's planetoid/moon thing, the Nesk's stolen pyramid ships, and the starburst ship thing from the end of the series. What are the others?

I've always loved this series, both for the well-developed and likable characters and the intense amount of detail they put into the many aliens.

Oh me, oh me, oh my... It - just - makes - sense... Being such a huge Animorphs buff I sought this artwork out a long time ago and seeing how realistically the others were done (races, species, and monsters) this one certainly is a surprise, but why not? We have the Archangel Ob-gandalf-dore, Ridley Scott & H.R. Giger's Drode, and Sauron and the Angry Video Game Nerd's bastard child.

- Take care, Beannachd Dai Dhuit

(P.S. Have you ever considered tackling designs of any of the characters: The Six, Elfangor, or V3?)

Love the interpretation of these three. I'm also glad I'm not the only one who has re-imagined The Ellimist. Hi, I'm new on deviantart and I've been following your Animorphs art for a long time and I'd like to invite you to take a look at some of mine.

Is that a Domeship on the Ellimist's shelf? If it is, it looks much better to how I imagined it would.

Nice interpretations! ^_^
I really like how you did the different alien ships on the Ellimist's side. I can identify Andalite, Yeerk, and Chee ships, and I'm guessing the saucer-like one is Skrit-Na, the big crystalline one is Ketran (or maybe the Ellimist's ship), and the spiky Death Star is Crayak's world-ship. The others, I have no idea.
Have to say the Ketran crystal ship is my favorite, though. I'd love flying around the galaxy in that thing! XD

What's MCQ3? Something from The Ellimist Chronicles? (which I haven't read yet)

Speaking of which, what are the other ships on the shelves? From top to bottom, left to right, I think they are: Bug Fighter?, Bug Fighter?, the Pool Ship, ???, The Blade Ship, a Bug Fighter, an Andalite Dome Ship, an Andalite fighter, ???, a Skrit Na ship, a Pemalite ship, and the rest I have no clue. What about an Ongachic ship, which looks like the "Star Trek" Enterprise?

You should consider making a new drawing of Crayak and releasing it under some sort of free (with attribution) license for the [link] Crayak page on Wikipedia. That single orange eyeball there is... lacking. And yours (and two others here on deviantART) is/are way better.

I really never thought of how The One is connected -if at all- to Crayak. I guess he could be, though his appearance was so short and cliffhanger/leaving-room-for-a-sequel-y.

I love how you turn Crayak and Ellimist into a couple of RPG players. Crayak's bow tie is the bomb. IT's so funny, and he's actually part of his swivel chair.

Awsome :D
