Here is a lineup of my relatively stylized take on the ‘Nine Divines’ from the Elder Scrolls game series.
From Left to Right; Akatosh, Mara, Arkay, Dibella, Julianos, Kynareth, Stendarr, Talos and Zenithar.
I had a fair bit of fun focusing on shapes and block colours, a friend however suggested that I should push the designs even further, which I reckon I’ll do at a later date, maybe as an exercise or something to add to my portfolio. Who knows, I may even do the ‘Daedric Princes’ at some point too…
Elder Scrolls owned by Bethesda. Apologies to Bethesda…
“And I would’ve gotten away with the nuclear war too, if not for you meddling kids!”
I was about to make a joke about the fact that Scooby isn’t present until the horrified realisation that they probably killed and ate him to survive hit me and it suddenly wasn’t funny any longer
Or he just died
Dogs do that you know
Their humans frequently out-live them

COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS
Not to diss on European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek or Norse. Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or even really the mythologies and beliefs of native peoples?
(Pssst from what group are these deities from?)
The Yoruba of western Africa.
