This is how the #Kalshodar are meant to look! This is how I've imagined them since I first came up with the idea of the #EmpyraeumCycle. The hardest part was the symmetry, posture, and physicality of an 11 foot immortal warrior. "Different in frame to the spare Dracograth, who are built for speed, the Kalshodar are wide -shouldered with deep, powerful chests. Their limbs are longer than what might considered the human norm but they are perfectly proportioned all the same. Art, Immortal, Medusa, Human, Soldier, Norm, Proportion, Speed, Hard Part

Reflex Armour Mark 4
Kalshodar Reflex Armour Type-D Since the inception of the Kalshodar, three millennia ago, there have been four Marks or Types of #ReflexArmour, that is how well it is built. Prior to the use of Reflex Field equipped #armour, right at the beginning, a heavy suit of #Dwarvish mithril-steel was the order of business. Sturdy, resilient, and darn well imposing in its day but very heavy and hell to wear in the heat or cold. #scifi #armorconcept #armourconcept #futuresoldier #conceptart #Empyraeum

Dracograth with Helmet Open
Dracograth armour is not simply ornate and beautiful, as well as somewhat imposing; is it also even more advanced than ordinary Kalshodar armour. Like all suits of Reflex Armour, it is designed to be removed and put on without direct assistance, giving its wearer the ability to be autonomous in the field as long as they have a Kalshodar ship nearby.
The JASON or Jet Aircraft (for) Sub Orbital Navigation is the cruise-liner of the skies of The Empyraeum and beyond. Jason flights connect The Empyraeum to all the Nations on Gaia and their people. This particular vehicle operates for Green Goblin Airlines of Potawatomi Ventures, based in the Federated People's Nations, far across the cold, deep Atlantic Ocean; it flies between Potawatomi City and Alexandria twice a week. #scifi #spaceship #conceptart Scifi Spaceship, Cruise Liner, Green Goblin, Jet Aircraft, Atlantic Ocean, Airlines, Spaceship, Aircraft

Dwarf Cargo Hauler
Since the Dwarves started to have a sizable presence on Sèlene, they have come to need to feed their forges. Sèlene has minerals and ores that are either already present on Gaia or unique but not everything. Much of the material needed to build and maintain the cities of Sèlene and the Gaian fleet must be brought from Gaia herself. So, a not unsizable fleet of haulers flies regularly from Home City on Gaia to Sèlene, bringing materials and delivering finished goods #scifi #spaceship #scifiart
Vast is a word you could use to describe the Flagship of Alexander, although that would be inadeqate. Beautiful, also, fails to achieve the desired impression. At 420km long, 207km wide, and 105km high, there are smaller moons in the Home System. There are temples and palaces on Gaia with less statues and reliefs; in fact the gigantic statues of Alexander, Achiiles, Bucephalos, and Athena along the flank are taller than many buildings.

The Dragon's Crown is a truly massive undertaking; the largest human- and dwarf-built structure in existence and the most challenging (largest) piece of #artwork I have ever attempted. It just asks to be deeply zoomed in. Some features, such as the massive statues of #Alexander, #Bucephalus, #Achilles, and #Athena,are immediately obvious but others are less so.

Empyraeum Rosette
#scifi #scifiart #logodesigns Some #Accidents are happy ones, #WritingCommunity friends. The #Empyraeum 'rosette' is one of those chance interventions of Fortune. I was trying to create a stamp for armour and equipment and this manifested from a couple of incorrect clicks...
two different views of the armor worn by characters
Reflex Armour
Reflex Armour is the most closely guarded secret of the #Kalshodar and their greatest strength. Liquid #mithril is forced through channels between armour plates and joints at pressure. The #ReflexField generated by pylons on the backpack/powerplant infuses the mithril and creates a truly miraculous combination. Reflex Fields work by obeying Newton's Third Law. Any force applied to it is returned with equal force, repelling any attack.
A dragon-like creature with four arms, dressed in beautiful, ornate robes of blue, gold, and white. In one of his hands, he loosely holds a double glaive as tall as he is, in another a curious egg-shaped, metallic object, and in yet another, a ripple bladed sword
A Xantoshen
Almost nothing is known about the Xantoshen except their name and their appearance, both of these discovered in the form statues found far beneath the surface of our moon, Sèlene. Together with those of the even more mysterious Ancients, statues of various Xantoshen were found, first by a pair of adventuring goblins and then by an Empyraen expedition. The name Xantoshen was carved into the plinths of these statues in a variety of Gaian languages, including an archaic form of Glòsta. #Empyraeum
A dog-like, jackal-like alien wearing patchwork armour, except for the armour on his odd legs, each having two joints, one backward like a dog's. He has massive bladed gauntlets but shows clear signs of advanced technology Species, Bounty Hunter, Bounty, Alien Concept, Canine, Hunter, Superhero
Kriniajan Bounty-hunter
The Kriniajan are a rarely encountered exos species and, considering their species' talents, you won't often find one, they will find you. Almost any member of this canine race that you find away from their home planet of Kriniakast will be a bounty-hunter. Incomparable trackers, highly intelligent, and (dare we say?) dogged in pursuit of their mark, they are very good at it too. #scifi #scifiart #scificonceptart #alienconcept #EmpyraeumCycle
Little is known about the Efane species except the odd encounter. We use "odd" because that is how most people describe this race of exos...odd. The more observant among you may see something familiar about this creature's face, you've probably seen one like it before; most people on Gaia have. This species has been closely watching and studying us for most of our history, similarly though more invasively than the Xantoshen. #EmpyraeumCycle #scifiart #scificonceptart #scifialien History, People, Creatures, Gaia, Face, Studying

The Deep Delver
Nobody remembers his name, that dwarf who delved deeper than any dwarf before him had, who discovered secrets beneath Sèlene which made habitation possible. #scifiworlds #scifiartwork #scififantasy #scifiworld #scifiauthor #scifiartist #scifibook #scifiseries #scifinovel #scifibooks #scifiart #dwarfs #Dwarfs #Dwarves #Dwarves #dwarven #bookcharacter #folklore #culturalhero #folkhero #legend #legendary #digitalart #digitalpainting #digitalportrait #digitalartwork #Artwork #ArtOfTheDay #artist

The Ancients
The Ancients also built the Junpgate network around the galaxy, allowing near-instantaneous travel between two 'gates by means of a vast system of stable 'tunnels' through what is called Voidspace or the Achera Ungud. They gave us the means and the ability not only to reach for the stars but to travel between them and colonise the galaxy. The question, of course as always, is why. #scifi #scifiworlds #aliens #ancientaliens #artwork #digitalartist
