Heyooo! Over at
, we held a contest to design Garun, the GAU mascot. The winning entry was drawn by none other than
. See her entry below:
One of the prizes for winning was a feature in my journal, so let's see if I can feature her in a way that is as cool as she is.
Picking a favorite piece by Merystic is like trying to pick a favorite candy. It's damn near impossible, and I'm just going to eat them all anyway. Wait, that doesn't make any sense. HEY LET'S STOP TALKING AND GET TO THE PICTURES!
I know it's a little bit of a cop-out to post the picture that the artist has featured on her own page, but come on. Look at that. Look at the way the water is rendered. Can you do that? I can't. I just want to pick sadgryph up and feed her candy. And we're back on the candy thing again.
Do I even have to say why I picked these? They're awesome.
Oh, hey, did you think she could only draw creatures? Because you would be WRONG. Look at how wrong you are. Do you taste that? It's the taste of FAILURE.
The last two pictures feature angles that are so hard to pull off, and she does it like it ain't no thang. The first dude is just cool and will raptor-kill you if you disagree.
She has an original storyline called Cold Core Omega, which benefits from both great art and a great name. Also, drawing your attention to the last one, that is apparently a "quick" painting. Merystic, I love you but also hate you with a burning jealous passion.
If this has not been enough to convince you to get your butts over there and watch Merystic right now, then you must be allergic to KICKASS.
