© Aaron Shively 2011

The ill-fated general Kayle had a single prized possession. It’s a high-grade, customized crystal officer’s sword given to him personally by the Aelphi’s Lord Obeiron.

The history of the emission-crystal technology is a special one. It was stolen. Read the rest of this entry


Project Concept – Necromanced

My wife brought over my Wacom tablet today… I haven’t used it in a LONG time because of certain issues I’ve had with my ability to draw my own creations.

It isn’t very finished, but I’m sure you get the idea… It’s far more like a storyboard panel than a full illustration. I sketch out my thoughts like this constantly.

On my ‘projects’ post, you’ll find an entry titled ‘Necromanced’. I’m not telling much about the story except that it’s not your usual zombie yarn.

This is an idea I had a while ago… A reanimated corpse with army rangers training.

His name is Saul.

He’s kind of pissed.

Since I’m stuck in a limbo of emotional turmoil at the moment, I’ve decided to let you in on the development process of Myth; where it’s been, how it’s going, where it’s going, etc.

There is a weapon known in myths. It is always an ultimate, always terrible, always sought after.

Imagined Nation #1

This was created a while ago… I fully plan on continuing it and I’m absolutely sure as to where I’ll go with it, but I’m just not sure when.

Myth Concept 1


© Aaron Shively 2011

Myth: of Men and Monsters is going to be very illustration heavy… as such, I’m developing every visual that is absolutely necessary… This is a concept for Nikko’s armor.

This concept has been developing practically as long as the character.

I’d tell you about the character, his species, this armor, his weapons and everything like that…  but… eh… Maybe.
