...Tsyreim was an Alicorn?
I thought it a fun idea, since I seem to enjoy overdesigning things and adding all manner of ornate details.
The Alicorn of course, was a perfect subject for this. So I decided to sketch up what I thought Tsyreim might look like if he were an Alicorn instead of a Unicorn.V1:
This was the original idea. But it never seemd close enough to an actual change, other than some wings and a slightly different horn. (Larger body overall as well).
Not to mention Alicorns always typically have some sort of armor, generally ceremonial.
And that's how I decided to redesign it to...V2:
This is the far more detailed version. I decided to create a sort of ceremonial armor, but still have it somewhat usable. I wanted it to be at least a bit realistic, rather than all the magic-y strange things I so often try to add. And for normal armor, I think it looks pretty good on him.
Rather regal I'd dare say.
I did some redesigning on his horn as well, making it more of an exotic mix of curves and points, but still fluid.
Among the other details, you'll probably also notice his 'Cutie Mark' is different in each picture.
The reason for which, is because the V1 is actually the Crest of Crystoldia. Technically, that is Lateon's crest, and I can't just go throwing it around to every character I make. So I created a new one.(which is entirely more appropriate given the design which I will probably elaborate more on sometime later)
That's about it for now. Hope you liked the design sketches.P.S. Yes those are his unshorn fetlocks poking out of the hoofguards.
