Ambush! Here come the Coyotles
We featured the Elves last week, and here's your second art feature by popular demand: The Coyotle. Sorry, Underworld and Vennen fans. You'll just have to wait a little longer.
We start with the concept art done by Anthony Jones. First. the males. You can see they have a Native American style to them, and early versions of the Warlock were even referred to as "Shaman."
Now, the females.
Though just as powerful, the female Coyotle is more slender and has bigger eyes. Overall, the most important features of the Coyotle is the snout size, the ear shape, the eye shape, and the shape of the leg, foot. Those are the features we check to make sure each piece of Coyotle art is "on model" and fits into the world of Entrath.
Of course, each artist then takes this concept art, along with the anatomy, and puts their own fingerprint on it. You can see Ludo Lullabi's approach to the Coyotle card Mutate is highly stylized. First, the sketch.
Now, the final piece!
It gets pretty painterly in some areas for effect, but the majority of the piece has a cool sharpness to it. It's much different than Michael Komarck's Ozawa, Cosmic Elder below.
Komarck has such a mastery of light and the glows, contrasts do so much heavy lifting in his pieces.
Of course, these are just two artists. You can see Chris Kuhlmann's Female Coyotle Mage (Level 1) and Adrian Wiklins's Male Coyotle Warlock (Level 3) below.
So many Coyotles that you must feel like you're part of the pack by now. Start practicing your howls so by the time HEX launches, you'll fit right in.
