Meet Ibwa and Eurynome. Two third-born Anarretyn in charge of looking after the mortal graveyard where the blessed are stored for their rebirth in the mortal realm.
Eurynome usually sits by the entrance, shooing the unwelcome away when not snoozing while Ibwa tends to the graveyard it self.
I think the comic followers will like these guys when i introduce them, well some of you will, others might be horrified by them.

Ibwa usually has a poncho over his shoulders but it would have been rather bland down there had I drawn that.

Foreshortening is kinda bad in places and the colouring on the chars is rather messy but over all i'm rather pleased with this. I'm glad i followed through with this idea, even if it did come out of the blue.

Unique beings that in spite of being quite horrific in appearance have a noble purpose.
I like this, the two are quite well detailed and much work was put into the background as much as the characters, which is quite impressive. Sadly, Ibwa?, (I think, the guy on bottom?) appears to be of less detail than the other and the rest of the picture... maybe for good reason? Well, whatever, great job!

Wow, eerie and awesome at the same time! The background is easily the best feature (in my opinion) of this piece, and very realistically portrayed, as are the rock features surrounding your characters. The shading and shadows is magnificent, as is the clothing design; the lighting gives the ambiance of spiritual power of mortal souls at rest. Both guardians really show their unique personalities. Keep this awesome work up!
