The Skyk are in-depth as a race, and this is just the life cycle explained. If I have the time I will try and break down their societal behaviours as well.
Sorry for the teeny little text, i was trying to fit as much lore as i could into this piece. Hope it comes out okay on everyone else’s end.
Welcome to the world of Aeula, a curious planet with two unique hemispheres; one lives long days and short evenings (Diurna), and the other sleeps through an eternal night (Nocturn). This is the setting for my books, and each continent has its own deep history, cultures, and curiosities to explore.
One of the earliest stages of a Skyk's life cycle is a fledgling; shortly after formation within a nursery nebula, a Skyk will take shape into a small flame. A star this young will differ in colouration based on lineage, magic abilities, or soul intensity. Yellow and White are the most common colours of fledgling seen in the nurseries, whereas shades of Blue are considered to be of powerful potential.
Apeirogon and the Destiny of Tomorrow (Final)
The final version of the album cover I helped to bring to life. I did a majority of the artwork (seen in my previous post), but left the rest of the process to the other artist. This is the end result.
There are actually 6+ variants of this album cover, which use a different background/sky based on the song played on the album. This is the main piece however.
I drew this a few months ago for the artist Moonhawk as the cover for their upcoming album: Apeirogon and the Destiny of Tomorrow. I've gotten a preview of the album already and its absolutely amazing.
Really enjoyed drawing this one since I've never done floating islands before. Hope you guys enjoy it too!
Tarot Sketch 15/22: Aeula, The Cradle of Life
It takes only one person to become the snowflake to an avalanche. Tomorrow is a new day, and the world shall watch with interest in your actions. Will you bring a new age to all, or a darkness wrought by your failures?
(Note: the colours have been flipped to reflect the darkness of space, so this card is the only one of its kind currently in the pack)
