Finally colored the Eouen redesign drawing I did like a month ago. Her costume looks a lot more… coherent now.
Eouen (pronounced OWEN) is the primary Eastern cardinal god and is Dhio and Kaia’s boss. Like Dhio, she was started life as a prehistoric beast who was then granted godhood. (She was a kind of cross between some sort of terrorbird and a secretary bird - yet another thing I gotta draw out eventually)
Maybe next I’ll draw some Northern gods? Or maybe I’ll just draw nothing but Eastern gods forever and ever.
For the Benign Kingdom kickstarter, I decided to take the chance to finally finish Eouen’s god crest. Hers was the first I designed, but I haven’t touched it since that little doodle. It was really fun looking up references of secretary birds and Byzantine eagles for this one!
This is gonna be in my Benign Kingdom Art Book! Sorry to press this again, but the kickstarter ends in 6 hours omigosh. If you want to pledge, now is the time!
Oh and hey, Ananth and I are going to be at a Q&A at Midtown Comics tonight! More info here if you want to come by. Hopefully we’ll see you there!
Eouen, 2002. Nostalgia Monday, this is nearly ten years old oh jeez I was 16 aaa
I’ve been looking for this picture for a couple weeks now, figured I’d lost it! Turns out it was on an older hard drive.
Since I’ve been drawing my old pantheon, might as well show off how I used to draw my old pantheon. Eouen is the cardinal god of the East and technically Dhio and Kaia’s boss. I was still subscribing to the school of “let's put some funky elaborate shit on a character that’s pretty memorable right?” I might just have played Final Fantasy 10.
Someone requested a redesign of Eouen in the comments recently, I’m definitely gonna do it. I like her too much to leave her with that costume. :/ :\ :/ :\
why am I putting this back on the internet, the internet doesn’t need to remember this
