These things that I submit are what pop into my head every now and again. Some are incredible, others are less than impressive. But all say something about what's going on in my mind.



Aelphi Empire Infantry Helmet by fear-is-spreading
Aelphi Empire Infantry Helmet
--A larger size image will come later. I really just wanted to get this up--

The Aelphi Dakasol... Feared, respected, loved, hated... It just depends on who you ask.

When they fight, they wear the face of an ancient warrior king, their god's right hand; the only Aelphi to touch Lord Obeiron and live. These infantry soldiers wear their helms at all times, and take in the strength of the facade.

When they march, they are not ranks of men. They are not mortals. They are all kings; they are all their god's right hand.
Xeli Ryer by fear-is-spreading
Xeli Ryer
The powerful elk known as a Galluk was a spiritual totem of strength to the Xeli nation. The beasts were the kings of the mountains. Smart, strong, and aggressive. They were known for their ability to defend themselves from all attackers, even parrying blades with their unique antlers.

Inspired, the Xeli clans began to create weapons based on the Galluk's antlers. The Ryer was carried as a defensive weapon, and was a standard issue auxiliary weapon during wartime.
Inferno Longsword by fear-is-spreading
Inferno Longsword

Of all the Althrians, one clan was prized for its tenacity, and passion. Traditional Lysrylry childhood generally consisted of two things; pain and pride.

Children of the Lysryl were given 'destinies' by their elders, and trained to fulfill them throughout their lives.

Some had destinies of guards, some archers, and some others were infantry. But every few seasons, a new born would be dubbed an Inferno. They would grow to be elites, or die trying. A fulfilled Inferno was a type of knight who wielded large, pronged swords. They would enter battle with no armor, and minimal clothes, relying on their speed, agility, and mastery of their weapon to keep them alive, at least long enough to kill their foe. Infernos were trained to believe only in victory. Once battle-ready and wielding their blades, they could not stop until they had dispatched an enemy.

This mentality forced them to the bring of physicality and determination. During conflicts few escaped them. The other clans would tell stories of the mad infernos, creatures of fire and blood, creatures who hungered for battle and pursued the retreating enemies until they died of fear, exhaustion, or the signature blades of these berserkers.

After the clan wars, some of Lysryl's population adopted foreign customs. This quelled the passions of the people, civilizing them. But the history, and tendencies remained.

The Lysryl remained temperamental, impetuous, proactive, and passionate. In the times of peace, they fell into despair. And then Obeiron came. Battles raged, and for a brief moment, they were the force that pushed the tide of war back. It was their infernos who overcame and overwhelmed the Aelphi ranks.

But even the Lysryl were no match for the Aelphi's greatest weapon...

No problem. I usually thank all of the cosplayers on here anyway. My designs use more realistic clothing than typical comic illustration (usually), and cosplayers help me research how really interesting costumes would actually sit on a human body.
