Jeih sat quietly, his eyes fixed on his hand, and did not seem to notice as Yahndrall sat silently down beside him.

“He showed me how to wake him.” Jeih said abruptly. Yahn looked over, and understanding flickered in the depths of his amber stare. ”I was there.” Jeih’s voice softened. ”I saw the link, followed its brilliance to its anchor, and… there he was. Sleeping.” A small laugh escaped him.

“I thought I knew, Yahn.” Yahndrall inclined his head, waited patiently for Jeih to finish. ”I did not realize…” Jeih fell silent for a moment and closed his palm. ”I was so small.” Yahndrall left him to his thoughts a moment more, and then spoke.

“Jeih.” Jeih looked up. ”What did you see in the light?



_______________________________________________

Daily doodle - Jeih relates to Yahndrall when Jarovin shows him how to wake Aryian from his sleep state, and Jeih sees for the first time the extent of Aryian’s size and power.

By the way, where can I find the actual stories, if there are any?

I expect that Jeih knew Ary was /big/. He's not a complete idiot, and Aryian is Aryian. But "I'm smaller than Ary" and "I am dwarfed by Ary's eye" are too different things. :|

As ever, I am impressed by your ability to convey so much /depth/ and /motion/ with a limited duotone palette.

Also: teeny tiny Jeih, aww. <3 Looking especially squirrely there, darling.

Amazing picture! Even in in smaller and bigger forms, their bodies seem so fluent. I especially like the atmosphere effect of this picture on my senses :)

I am always amazed with your artwork. It is absolutely phenomenal. I have a question in regards to this piece. How big would Jeih be in regards to a human?
Again, awesome work!

Ary is huge
Jarovin must be massive.
Though I'm curious about Hons and Red?

Oh Jeih, you poor little gold noodle.

Hopefully now Jeih will learn that this is the reason why you should not take pillows away from Aryian while he sleeps. :lol:

But despite that, interesting composition. I really love the size comparison between the two, and how in the picture, all you see is the gold squiggle of Jeih that stands out against Aryian's black coloration.

Something with 382 favorites and 19 comments really just shows how pathetic Deviantart really is.


Wonderful piece! I can definitely see the emotion and time invested into it (: It does deserve to be on the front page.

You have a way of making things seem both incomprehensibly alien and familiar at the same time. It's addictive.

Welp, Just seeing that Aryian's that big compared to Jeih, and Jeih is 'swallow-multiple-star-systems size'... we're so goddamn insignificantly minute, and Jarovin must be 'holyshitincomprehensiblehuge'. PERSPECTIVE.

Holy teeth, Batman. I like the vignette. So short, yet it seems to encapsulate much of what it is to be Lockjaw. :D

Hm so what is the size of Jeih right now? i have to imagine pretty big if he is in natural state. It's an amazing drawing, it makes me feel so small compared to Ary...amazing composition, it reall feels like he is bigger than anyone could imagine

Jeih's actual natural state size, at the height of his willpower, is pretty big. Like, eats-more-than-a-few-star-systems-at-a-time big. The smaller galaxies we know of would be big ponds to him.

if a normal Lock can swallow whole planets, then Ary must be really big...

Yeeeeeep, hiding under my rock...

ALTHOUGH I must ask, if Ary's this big, how big is Jarovin?
Or do I not even want to think about that? 8C

My friends sometimes talk about stars and space and say how they feel small, I've honestly never felt like that until looking at Ary. It's weird XD

Might just need to show him next to some galactic clusters then. OR...ever heard of Dark Flow? If not, look into it. Might give you some Jarovin inspiration :D

Wow. That's pretty cool. Is this going to change anything between Aryian and Jeih, now that he realizes how powerful Aryian is?

very cool, you really get the impression that you're dealing with something very massive. also i really love how all of the focus is on the beast's face, and everything else is a simple shape.
