Discord Archer by stonewurks Discord Archer by stonewurks
This character was designed for the Everquest Gates of Discord expansion.

The inspiration for it came from Native American clothing and Japanese asymetrical bows.

The arrows on the back glow because they are magically imbued, and also indicate the rank and authority that this character has.
This character is also native to an enviroment that des not have light, so his eyes discern heat instead of color. Because of this, he can see thorough his eyelids when he travels to places that have light, and has sewn his eyelids shut to avoid being stunned by too much light entering his eyes during combat. The idea of a blind archer is also pretty cool. His stripped self inflicted scar tissue is colder then the surrounding healty skin tissue, which helps to form a type of camoflauge for heat sensing races.

Oh wow. This is absolutely spot-on. Not the biggest fan of that expansion, but these guys were memorable, no doubt.

Thanks 13thCapricorn, and yeah, I love Oni, and pretty much love all Japanese and Asian demon and creature designs and ideas. I'm sure it crept into my subconcious at some point. Thanks-Stone

beautiful design. I love the demonic look he's got. Reminds me of a Japanese oni or something, especially with the bow. And the designs on the clothing! Very cool.

very creepy... I like it haha. I love arrows that are behinds his back and how they have a glow.

I was wondering though if you would allow me to use this image in the trading card game I am working on; I will give full credit to you if you allow me to use the picture. I will not use this image unless you give permission of course. If you have any questions just post a comment here or email me at cardsofwar@live.com

Hey there, sorry for the late response. You are welcome to use this image, however, it no longer belongs to me, it is the property of Sony, so, as long as it is for a prototype deck, or for a pitch, I doubht if anyone will have an issue with it.

Ugh! I hate these guys! They are mean as hell in the game. >< Bad ass design though. Did you do the 3D modeling of these guys as well?

Sorry for the late reply, one of the other artists on the team did, I only did minor texture corrections on the face and a few adjustments on the mesh of the body before it was finaled and dropped in game. -SP
