Mephrit - Guardian of Mepher by AW08
Mephrit - Guardian of Mepher
This design regards the aspects of my conceptual story, Kodomo no Dokuro. 

For everything to make sense, in this story there are 13 floating pieces of terrain, pieces that when put together fill the holes inside the Earth which are now occupied by oceans. On each floating kingdom dwells an Elder. Each Elder finds its place in the center of a gigantic perfectly shaped sphere with a diameter of 60 kilometers. From each of the Elders' waist grows a network of roots which go all they way down through the bottom of the spheres, create a thick pillar which holds the sphere up above the ground and parts itself in billions of branches inside the ground and end in incomplete human-like creatures of different sizes. They all desperately cry their pain out, but to normal human beings their scream would be nothing but the sound of an angelic choir. This way, through the soundwaves they create, the piece of Earth is being held up above the Earth's surface and also hidden from the eyes of humans. Through the branches, the Elder also keeps the piece of Earth alive through a very rich vegetation and earthy resources. 

"Mepher" - piece of Earth/floating kingdom

The proposed design showcasts on the back of the character an extension of his skeleton - a slightly curved plaque, being 2 meters square in size. The perfect and neat surface of the Sphere is solely made out of these plates while the Mephrit stays inside crouched and grabbing onto the meat-y layer within. 

Now doing some maths, the surface of the Sphere is 11,304,000,000m2. The total of Mephrits forming the surface of the Sphere, as the plates on their back is only 2mis roughly half of the surface's units, namely, 5,652,000,000. To understand how many of them actually are across all the Mephers we should multiply this number by 13. 

Mephrits are 3 meters in height. Their strength is unimaginable most of the time the characters within the story will rather evade them, hide from them or even immobilize them, than to confront them.

In this sketch the Mephrit is depicted in both situations - clothed and unclothed. 
I always keep my playlist on 'Shuffle' and I just love it when after some song its remixed version comes right afterwards.

It feels as if I haven't drawn in ages! I'm craving for Photoshop and a graphics tablet!

I'm a (check at the top of the profile) years old artist. I was summoned on the 21st of 1994's November. I'm interested in the digital arts and gaming industry. I game a lot. I love watching gaming podcasts such as Bonus Round, Invisible Wall and EpicBattleCry and also keeping in touch with all the gaming news. I'm also a gadget whore.

My main purpose here is to improve as much as possible!

Something else I enjoy doing is being part of the dA community and visit the profiles of many deviants here. This way I can discover lots of awesome artists I can learn a lot from. On this journey I always take my time giving a llama to each account I visit symbolizing a 'Thumbs up!', 'Keep it up!' or 'Welcome on dA!'. :aww:
I'm aware of your gratitude. That makes me happy and I'd like you to know you're all welcome! It's all my pleasure to cheer you, guys.

I may not reply to all your comments, but I always read them and I'm doing my best in getting the necessary time to reply. :thanks:

Enjoy your staying on my profile! Thank you all for all of your support! I truly appreciate it! =D

COMMISSIONING PRICES by AW08! It rhymes! Dang!

Yep, my lads. In less than 12 hours I'm jumping in the plane to Berlin, then take the plane to London and finally, the plane to Manchester.
Two layovers, eh? Unbelievable. 

Everything is set. My desktop will be sent there together with all my consoles and the Cintiq through some special delivery service. It'll take it around 5 days, but at least they'll help me get them in my room, which is very neat.

Sooner than that I will get myself a laptop. Just remembered I need to pack my graphic pen tablet in the luggage as well. :laughing: 

My girlfriend is already there and I'm dying to see her again. 

Other than that, what can I say? It's-the-start-of-a-new-beginning cliche? I don't think so.

I'll be studying Computer and Video Games at the School of Arts and Media at MediaCityUK at the Salford University International! 
This in no way is any cliche, right? 

Anyways, guys. I hope I don't sound like showing off...I'm just trying to dissimulate the stress I have on the back of my mind. I'll be there all left alone. It's quite scary. I'm confident in my own powers, but you never know what could happen. UK mofos have the traffic lanes all screwed up. They have the driving lanes shifted, I kid you not. Hope none of those fancy double decker bus face plants me on the ground. A splatter of art in the middle of the street. That's what I'll become.

Until next time I'm leaving you here a piece I'm currently working on. It'll be huge. It has 5 characters from my conceptual story. Hope you like it. I'm currently linearting it. :)
