the guardian stones

A True Guardian

The Elgang was cornered, trapped with nowhere to run or hide, hundreds of demons from another dimension slowly closing in from all sides. On this night, the burning fires of Velder, everything in chaos…no one had the strength to fight; not even Elsword, who barely held onto his sword for support. The fighting had been gruesome, all but one had succumbed to exhaustion.

The ground began shaking violently like an earthquake, before suddenly a wave of energy tore right through the demon army, an enraged yell filling the Elgang’s ears as demon spawn began flying everywhere, bloodied and beaten by Chung’s giant cannon. He was in his berserk state, multiplying the power of his Guardian Stone to unprecedented levels as he smashed his way to his friends, the demons were powerless against Hamel’s White Wolf

“SHEILD YOUR EARS!” commanded Chung, seeing his comrades do so..he smiled under the helmet, and let forth a final attack. “IRON HOWLING! YAAAAAAH!!!!!” and in a piercing shout, the demons where thrown back, slamming into the ground or walls. Chung stood in front of his weakened friends, casting Wonder Wall to protect them from further harm. “Let’s go everyone..there will be more; but by my title as Iron Paladin, I will not let any of you fall.”

“Before creation itself, there were six singularities. Then the universe exploded into existence, and the remnants of these systems were forged into concentrated ingots. Infinity Stones.

These stones, it seems, can only be brandished by beings of extraordinary strength. These carriers can use the stone to mow down entire civilizations like wheat in a field. Once, for a moment, a group was able to share the energy amongst themselves, but even they were quickly destroyed by it.”

A while ago I asked for help choosing between two different Triforce design options. Here is the winner! This one received over 2/3 of the vote, but what actually solidified my decision was the comments some of you left explaining your choice.

People in both sides argued that their preferred design “fit” better, but this one was called more “elegant, sleek, and elven”. A few people made comparisons to visual similarities to the guardian spirits/spiritual stones. Several others pointed out that the arrows guide the eye toward the rest of the panel – I didn’t even realize at the time that there were other arrows nearby in the applique design.

I’m a pretty introverted person and I spend most of my time working alone in my workshop, which is how I like it. But sometimes I miss working alongside other artists and bouncing ideas off of each other. Thank you all for the thoughtful feedback – I’m positive we made the right choice!
