I'm a freelance illustrator heavily influenced by fantasy and sci-fi. My current focus is on traditional art. For the time being, I'm working as a freelance architect (my major) but also illustrator and are learning concept art which I hope I could switch to in the near future.

Day 05: (Definitely not) Chicken
Among the Bearers, Basilisk isn't quite a rare sight, most of the cases they're spotted at farms and remote villages. This evil creature's hatched from a snake egg that was incubated by a chicken (though no one really knows why or how). Some old books suggest that this phenomenon only occurs in villages or other inhabited places which already hold a large number of bad influences, comes from violence, evil deeds, and doings. And with the right amount of negative energy, dark force rises, for they feed on it. In this case, it's the Basilisk.


[] Currently, I found myself out of words to write and realized how limited my English is. Struggling to find correct words to write down 's kinda wore me out. Might return to rewrite about the basilisk later then. It's still an interesting creature with a bunch of things to say about. FTR, the base idea is this: Basilisk takes form from chicken, the most common livestock, which (I think) is the best symbolic monster for the evil side of man.

Day 04: Spell
In this strange world, there are men, the majority, living all over the continents, and there are other races such as elf, dwarf, dryad,.. and so on, living in harmony. "Just like any fantasy book you say?" - Yes and no, my dear. There are of course monsters, lurk in the dark and deserted lands, as this world is indeed a world of monster and magic creatures. But some of them just are so evil, so much evil, along with many other "things" that no one even wants to spit their names - that aren't monsters anymore. They live among all other species as the counter-force of life itself, sometimes they are called "Bearer" for short, the name stands for horrors: Bearer of darkness, Bearer of blight, Bearer of shadows... and many many other names.

People need someone to protect them from the Bearers.
And that's the beginning of the story about the Masked Hunters.
It isn't hard to spot one of them. They always wear a mask that covers all their face, with what they called "honor" that is sometimes a pair of horns, antlers, or fangs... on the masks. And they use spears for their first choice of weapon. Some say it's effective against monsters, some say it's also religious, both for the masks and spears.
Of course, there is no masked hunter without a spear, but don't mistake that's all they have. Beside spears, they could wield all other kinds of arms. It's only a personal choice, just to get the job done. Some of them could even use magic, minors spell to be exact since they aren't creatures of magic. But magic is still magic. A Hunter could cast spells is a strong one, enough to earns respect from all other hunters.

Day 03: Roasted
The Ember lizard lays dead on the ground with some smoke's still escaping through it's nostrils. "Such small fry. Only good at being big, and dumb. An easy prey." He says. "It's roasted lizard meat for today's menu then. Good taste, can't just waste it... And the journey is long. Still."

Day 02: Tranquil
The night is dead silent, with the only sound is from the footsteps of a single silhouette. On a thick layer of snow that is just as black as the sky, the hunter is persistently walking. His legs are tireless. His spears points toward the sky, ready. His eyes are fixed frontward. "Tranquil..." He mumbles to himself. "Yes. I still remember it. It's a perfect word for this kind of night. A word that's long lost. A word to describe this pitch black night with only silence around, like nothing could ever disturb. Or nothing dares..."
Loading...
Day 01: Poisonous
Some where, in a far corner of a faraway land, out in the dark, the creature, known as - or claimed itself - a hunter is carefully preparing its weapons. Pouring on the spearhead is a generous amount of a liquid made from poisonous herbs and chemicals - just a lethal combine... "This will do." - Under the mask, the hunter whispers.

A little bit sad that I've just started drawing just yesterday, for I was away for almost 10 days and couldn't find any chance to draw. But I'm back home now, guess I will just try my "maximum effort" to catch up with everyone's progress.
