Makar the Warrior by CrystalSully Makar the Warrior by CrystalSully
**EDIT: Wow I'm so incredibly humbled and flattered to get a Daily Deviation with Makar! Thank you so much :iconkovowolf: for the DD! :D **

 At Spectrum Fantastic Art Live a lot of people got to see and purchase full scale prints of the few characters from The Aegrus that I brought with me on display. I figured it would only be fair to now share them with the rest of the world by finally posting them online! 


So, here we have Makar, the rare Aegrus who actually fights for justice, revenge, and the well-being of mankind. Residing in solitude in the Himalayas (and often being mistaken as the elusive Yeti) he is considered to be a master swordsman with a lifespan of thousands of years, dating back to the first evidence of Samurai warriors. When donned in his deep maroon-colored armor he wears a grinning Oni mask under his helmet to intimidate his foes as he battles against the other Aegrus who are trying to annihilate humanity. 

*I currently have a Patreon channel going on that features exclusive updates on this character and this entire project, make sure to check it out and spread the word! www.patreon.com/CrystalSully

I graduated from RMCAD with a BFA in Illustration and currently work in the video game industry while developing my own IP.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-08-15
Makar the Warrior by CrystalSully is one of those pieces that really brings out the raw nature of curiosity. To what ends has this character gone and come back from? What idol or mask do they hold? A lovely and intriguing piece full of vibrant detail! ( Featured by KovoWolf )

He's soooo beautiful! I love his expression, his snow-leopardness, and his clothing and mask! Excellent work!
It may sound strange to say, but I hope that I'll be able to reach this skill level, or at least be able to make a living like you do!
