+ ET QVI SVSCIPIT ANIMOS + by Falafler
+ ET QVI SVSCIPIT ANIMOS +
"He who winneth souls, frees us."

In Himalayan culture, the vulture is a memento mori and a savior, bickering over the freshly-dead and aiding their spirit ascend into the heavens as they consume it. I strove to portray the vulture as a heavily-westernized, Christian saintly figure, and to juxtapose the unsettling appearance of the bird with their overall benevolent mythological purpose. Acting as angels that would relieve the soul of the material world through the visceral confrontation with death rather than in a more ‘sterile’ church setting, I drew from illuminated manuscripts to create a discomforting work that called out society on the principles of death and the soul that it so often forgets to address.

This is an original work done in scratchboard medium, please do not steal. Copyrighted to me under law. Thank you.

Ndhogolo, The Pestilential Exarch by Falafler
Ndhogolo, The Pestilential Exarch
Plague-Bringer. The Gnawing Eel of Ragnarok. 

Ndhogolo is an entity similar to Dagon in it's origin, rising from an abyssal black mire thousands of feet under the ground. I decided my hand at creating a Lovecraftian creature, with mixed success, I think. His design feels just a tad too bland, and whether it be texture, features, or coloration that I ought to change, I don't know just yet. Critique is welcome, and I've got a good deal of info on him if you like.

Sacrificial Audience Chamber of Ndhogolo by Falafler
Sacrificial Audience Chamber of Ndhogolo
Deep beneath a secluded mining community in the Baltics, there lies a massive, cavernous chamber of boiled rock and hideous, black ooze, the walls engorged in unnatural red light cast out from runes like nothing of this world...

Popping in to say Hi after half a eternity. (And also being so sorry for becoming so silent.)
Hope you are doing fine and everything's running smoothly!

oh jeez, it certainly has been a long time. Sorry I'm not much one for posting here anymore, since it's a pain to post anything from mobile and I'm on my phone for the majority of the day. If you wanna see some of my new art, check out www.hoss-thejack-ofclubs.tumblr.com, since that's where I post most of my art now.

Awwwww, sad to hear you're not around here much anmyore - I really enjoyed our conversations and roleplays.
But then again, I can 100% understand that. I have to do lots of my internet stuff via mobile too, I know the feeling. Both versions of dA - desktop and mobile - are evil to navigate.

I'll definitely have a look at your twitter (I'll be the 'charming' person known as gallum-galla-gilla-ma ) because I'm most curious to see some fresh art of yours.

Yush, it's been such a long time. I start getting nostalgic *plays some oldschool music on a record player*
How have you been doing, ever since we last met?

oh I don't have a twitter, it's a tumblr. And I've been alright, just lots of stuff with personal life and family going on as well as some new interests. Would you be interested in getting my Skype, maybe?

not from art, but just from deviant art. the submission process here is what kills me; it's just such a pain in the ass, dude. But, if you wana catch up with me on all the art I've been doing as of late, would you wanna hook up some skype chatting?
