Artifact Weapon: Horn of Emanation -Light
The Stalker: Siren
Siren was born high in the Echo Mountains to the native Euqinu tribe. Neglected and ignored Siren wanders beyond the village where she meets a forest creature named Spike. Forbidden to take him home she built a nest on her back and hides him there. When she reached the age of speech she uttered strange sounds. Her childhood mutterings caused sickness within the village, the villager’s cursed her very existence and forced her mother to sacrifice Siren in the Verboten Forest.
Feeling pity for Siren her mother left her daughter at the waters of the forest spirit. Siren was wrapped in a blanket, adorned with silver jewelry, and a hand woven skirt. Hidden within the design of the skirt was a secret map she must unravel. Silence filled the air and Siren was alone. Rage and sadness took over Siren, who let out an immense cry and with a powerful echo her mother running out of the forest reverberated into dust.
A gust of wind twirled around Siren and drew her into the heart of forest. The Forest Spirit emerged from the trees and bestowed to her a Horn of Emanation and crystal of Verboten Forest within the nest of her back. Curiously Siren blows the horn and the ground illuminates around her, revealing tracks of unworldly mechanisms. Together Siren and Spike travel the land following the paths of the destructive metal ones, relaying their movements to the forest territorial army.
Artifact Weapon: Horn of Emanation
Blow the horn and it reveals trails of electrically charged tracks.
My first time entering so I need lots of feedback… I will post more sketches of the Artifact Weapon soon! Thanks for looking!

Lovely sketches and presentation!
The horn sounds like a really cool and different weapon.

The characters and style are inspired by my Hmong heritage. Siren and Spike will display many of these symbols so here is their meaning… Thanks for looking!

Here are just a few out of many concepts I came up with for the Horn of Emanation… Thanks for looking!

great concept and design so far. i like~

Really nice style and concept. If you can keep the same style until full 3d character you will have a really cool dominance warrior.
I would love to see some more views and some more describing concepts.
Keep it up

Very interesting style! Can't wait to see the next one! :thumbsup:
The horns are all great but the upper right one interest me the most of its unusual design.
03 March 2008, 08:28 PM
Thanks for all of the feedback! I will make sure to capture the style all the way up until the end... I'm working on a few more concepts and will post them soon... Can't wait to start modeling!

Keep 'em comin'! Love your whimsical designs.

Siren's mother left her silver jewelry to protect her soul from evil spirits... The pendants lock your soul from wandering... Thanks for looking!

A secret map is hidden within the design of Siren's dress... It leads to different portals of the world... Thanks for looking!

The Crystal Of Verboten is hidden within her back... One must rip it out of her body for it is embed deep within her hollow tree... Her tracks are camouflaged with animal hoof prints underneath her shoes... Thanks for looking!

Cool! The shape of the shoes is very interesting. I just realized that it has already been there in the first pic. Love the crystal's casing too! When are you going to integrate them all together? :D
03 March 2008, 10:28 PM
I like how everything has a story behind it. I find that very hard to do in my work.
And those hoof print shoes are a great idea. :thumbsup:
03 March 2008, 09:22 AM
wonderful ideas! Now I really looking forward to see it all together, aspecially in 3d. But I really like that you take you time to make alot of concepts, alot of people miss that. Maybe it's soon time for some character views again:). I'm really curious how it will look all together.
I think I forgot to say in my last post; I think Spike needs some more concepting, maybe just some simple side views, just to get the right weight of the body.
Keep up the good work
03 March 2008, 01:25 PM
nice start, lovely concepts! keep it up!:thumbsup:

Spike is a gentle creature that loves to chase and eat butterflies…
Here are just some of many concepts I created for Spike… He started out as a cloud/wind creature but changed my mind once I did some concepts…
Thanks for all the feedback! I'm finally getting me closer to the modeling stage… Hopefully I will get something done this weekend… Thanks for looking!
