Avalkis is an animal with the features of a deer and a dragon from my Springbringer fantasy world. The first sketch was drawn in a forest. I often find animals, creatures and beings in tree branches, stumps, leaves, clouds, puddles of water—in the fractals of nature and other random visual formations.
The colored one is is a pastel drawing. This is kind of a self-portrait in a way and my alias is Avalkis which I’m using as an artist name in certain publications such as music.
The final A4 illustration and original 2008 pencil sketch, which was finally to be an etching aquatint graphic work (2009). It is 21×31 cm and there are about 10 prints with slightly different tones.
This scene depicts a story set in the Springbringer fantasy world.
The layout construction was inspired by the legendary Ultima II: Revenge of the Enchantress (1982) role-playing game box’s panoramic artwork (the game was released by Sierra On-Line Inc. / SierraVenture).
Another graphic print of Swan Mirror (Proof Series ][) on a more reddish tone than the one above which is more yellow.
Above is a deleted scene from the post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi film Soulweaver: Requiem for Earth (2017).
Pencil sketch 21x29cm, Varjojen maa in Finnish. Final sketch above right and below the lithograph proof. The original drawing has a psychedelic concept of a giant swan creature with legs and huge sharp nails. The final fantasy scene has a curious flower-like deer-faced giant meeting a black swan on a dried-out sea bottom.
This is part of the Springbringer fantasy world.
