10 years by Sythgara 10 years by Sythgara
10 years...It doesn't seem like much year to year, but going back...it's REALLY been a long time. Just little bit under half of my life.

Heh, I remember how it all started from a simple picture (left corner) while fascinated with LOTR's cave troll and the balrog. I can't remember what made me go back to this creation, but I did. And yes, Azuryt started out as a quadruped : P.It wasn't long before I started my first notebook for some random comics, which were at that time largely ripped off The Lord of the Rings because my level of originality was at the beginner level. You can say that this...little monstrosity there started it all. And got me into concept art, and building a headworld, and eventually starting the long process of my book writing.

It may sound strange, but aside of LOTR helping me find my life goal, which would be concept artist hopefully at Weta one day, I now realize that this little picture was the beginning of where I am now in life. As a person, and as an artist.

So...what else can I say besides happy birthday Az and thanks for coming along! Let's hope I can finish that damned prequel this year at last, and move onto your story :D

Cheers everyone!

Congratulations. I've only been one of your watchers for short while but what I have seen greatly inspires me. And now seeing how far you've come since the first Easkull picture to what you are now shows me that I too can one day be a great artist.

Keep up the good work. :)

It's always fascinating to see how much an artist's abilities and designs have evolved over the years.

It's pretty amazing how one simple drawing or idea is all it takes for something like this to happen. And when you look back at the older work, you realize how much your character has grown and how attached you've become to them. And it's like they are a part of who you are

It's really awesome to see how long and dedicated you've been to your characters. I see so many people abandon stories and characters and all they need is a little bit of fixing/revamping, and I love that Az's progression wasn't drastic and instead a nice smooth change like your art. Has Allaya changed much? I know you updated her outfit, that's like the one thing I avoid like the plague. So many characters are currently running around naked in my head because they need updated clothes lol D:

Thanks : )

Yea Allaya changed as well but I think her design ended up where I initially wanted it to be. And I know what you mean with the clothes hehe
