Atmoran Monoliths


9 posts in this topic

Posted

Well, at first work i decided to make some monoliths, big, medium and small ones with blue of some art from bronze age and traditional carving.

And i tried to make the carvings (except from the 2° of the second photo) to retrate war, mythology, a lot of ships for the Companions and Runic inscripts (the best i could understand) related to the Gods.

What do you guys think?

very good! Exactly what is needed.

The first one, with that Ysgramor-like face is truly outstanding.
I think, its very nice to have not only hoddimir-style-runestones but also mayan and sumerian elements ;-)
i love it. If possible, could you try another variant for more diversity? I can imagine telling ancient stories with them...
for example enpicturing a dragon, a bear, an owl, a wolf, a moth, a hawk, a swan, a stag, a hare, a whale, a fox,
a boar; or daily situations, or priests or jarls or ships.... something that catches your interest ;-)

additionally:
If you need, feel free to join the writers docs in the writer channels, 
and you can talk with me or anathem7x or tascani about options for scripts if you have suggestions for us;
(what this monolith could do with magical abilities)

I'm awestruck. These monoliths look fantastic!

Nice idea,  the one of altars to the old gods in humanoid form. As long as you keep them small and compact just like Skyrim's ones it's okay, nothing like huge statues though. Those, at least for Kyne(hawk) and Shor(fox), we already have models for, with more being a possibility in the future assuming the artist is still working on them, as he had no problem basing them on the official concept art.

So if you need reference images for each one of them, look no further:

Good point bringing these up. Mayhaps we could incorporate them more in Atmora, considering it's Atmoran culture brought to Skyrim.

could be done; yes.
you can choose these human forms, but we have some mural / totem references.

yes, Thewovlesden, you are right, this is what we did, and still want to do ;-)

but, feel free to use all of your creative inspiration, karou akiyama, even if its not an animal ;-)
