It's been awhile huh?

I'd like to start of with an apology for my inactivity, I've been away from society and I wrote nothing to explain that before I left. I've been training at job corps for the past 2 months and i'm finally in a summer break. Things have actually been going well for me, I've met many friends and have become somewhat better in interacting with people, yet when I came back here... everything feels different...

Anyways, I've been drawing allot in my sketchbook, yet no creatures only characters and environments, it's fantasy oriented and it has lore and stories so it won't be completely mundane. I'll upload them when I have the chance. 

Until then.

Lich by Ray-of-Afterlife
Lich
Lich:

Liches are commonly described as undead sorcerers. Wizards and even kings who strive to triumph over death by preforming various rituals that binds their intellect towards an artifact that they carry- known as a phylactery; to obtain a form of immortality, although, at the cost of their humanity. Even though they are immortal, they are corpses that rot over time, making them somewhat frail, even if they retain their intellect, they will slowly lose their memories, their passions and motivations until they lose all sense of purpose. 

Their immortality becomes a curse rather than a blessing, and they simply become like statues, remaining still forever in a void of indifference, while others malignant and eager to harm any living creature in their vicinity with dark magic.

Liches can be destroyed and freed from their curse, by burning them or destroying their phylactery, yet attempting to do so is dangerous. They are deadly foes that can use dark magic to inflict wounds that won't heal, for it seems that their dark magic can dilute and stain the soul of a living being, much like an infection.

Nilim sentinel by Ray-of-Afterlife
Nilim sentinel
Nilim sentinel:

Also known as the golems of Nilim. According to faded scrolls, Nilim was once a utopian city filled with ziggurats and temples, hidden in a lost oasis of the old sand ocean. Little is known about the ruins of Nilim or whatever happened to the people that inhabited the city, the only remnants left of Nilim are the Mysterious sentinels that guard the city. 

They measure a total body length of 17 feet of hight and willed large spears that can cut through stone with ease, their combat skills and fighting styles makes them extremely deadly foes, able to dodge and deliver attacks with great speed and agility.

They also seem to speak in their native language and can communicate with one another to fight as a team and plan ambushes. 

These sentinels are made of ancient relic stones controlled by unknown forces, and they seem to wear scarfs and attires made for traversing sandy terrain and harsh climates. Their masks also appear to be their most noticeable feature, which is stated by scrolls that these masks are a looking glass to other worlds and a key or portal for ascending mind, body and soul towards a new plain of existence. Perhaps this can explain what happened to the people of Nilim, they've ascended towards another plain of existence, yet the ruins are frayed, which might indicate another reason towards their absence.

Drawing ever since I can remember, Its the only thing that I'm good at. Since I suck at almost anything else (scratch playing video games, I'm awesome at playing video games XD). Art gives me a huge purpose in life, it reminds me that I'm a unique individual and not a wasted space.

Always trying my best to be a great artist, I may not be the most spectacular Artists ever but I try to always be creative. I'm hoping to be a illustrator / concept artist in the future, hopefully sooner :)

Anyways hope you enjoy my art :D

Ah thanks!!  Glad your looking into my latest work, though I've been wanting to draw something creepy, no luck yet. Particularly my monsters for my story/ concept which I been writing allot about lately :)

ah I know what it feels like, I'm currently in that position.. Since I was born lol :lol: sometimes the world can make me feel like I'm just no good at all, and I don't say that to be dramatic, it's my honesty. It can be so damn stressful you know? But I guess I can live trough it, lol :XD:
