He was the first of his kind, and is the last of the Cythai still alive. All Ionrach bow before him, their one acknowledged leader, the eldest and greatest of their race. He is Volturnos, High King of the Deep, and he holds undisputed authority at the Idoneth’s assembrals. He rides to battle atop his Deepmare Uasall, and sends a surge of pride coursing through all who fight beneath him. A leader of legendary status, it is said that none can read the flow of battle better than Volturnos. He carries a sword known as the Astra Solus, which cuts through armour with ease, leaving a blazing trail of luminescence; and a shield which can swallow hostile magic, rendering it null – Volturnus is not content to lead his troops from afar.
Volturnos was a commission work I did some months ago and now rest on a private showcase. Not only I trtied to achieve a great color intensity, also I worked on fish texture using some "metallic dust" effect on the seahorse (or wahtever it is). Unfortunately is not noticeable so much in pictures offering a much better reflects in real life.
