Shadowmaker by xHideFromTheSunx Shadowmaker by xHideFromTheSunx
So here is a study of my character "The Haarmi", or as it is also known more recently, Shadowmaker.
For those of you who don't know what a Haarmi is - It's a thing that causes a lot of pain by casting shadows. Mentally and literally. It's horselike in general, but slightly more terrifying, and has bigass bird talons on it's front legs, and a long dragon-like tail. It has no internal organs so that's why it looks so skinny. The noise it makes is identical to the artificial harmonics of a cello (which is that screechy wailing noise that Apocalyptica use quite a lot). It's quite often shrouded in shadow. And it is ALWAYS an "it". No gender... Just hatred.

I have drawn one of these properly only once before, though I have known them for quite a few years. They were too mysterious to show a whole lot of themselves until now. Now when I listen to songs from Shadowmaker, they take the role of THE Shadowmaker in my head.

My intention in the coming months is to share as many of the stories I see play out to Shadowmaker as possible, as the inspiration has been endless thus far. I will then pick my favourites and take them to an Apocalyptica show at the end of the year to show Eicca, since I shook his hand on it ;) I will explain more as time goes on.

Until then, here's the title track. Most of the instrumental bit is perfect "Haarmi causing havoc" music. ;)

I can't stop you from posting this somewhere else, but have some respect - don't alter this in any way or claim that it's yours. Or I will find you. And I will be ANGRY.:dummy:
