Ascendance requires sacrifice and death, but some power is even worth the price of death.
A scene from the Eternal Seven story. Used a photo from K2 peak as backdrop reference.
This guy was inspired by multiple things, I’ve been playing a game called Torchlight 2 which has really cool characters and armor sets, one of them is a Valkyrie armor set which set the tone for this piece. I also watched Star Gate recently and the armor design in that movie helped to inspire this exact piece a bit too. I ended up spending a lot more time on this one than I intended but it was fun!
