    ChoW # 214 :: Koschei the Immortal



    ROUND #214:: Koschei the Immortal


    DESCRIPTION


    Koschei the Immortal


    Koschei is a mysterious figure from Slavic mythology. He is very evil and ugly, and his name is probably derived from the word “bones” in Slavic languages, suggesting he looks like a skeleton... Koschei cannot be killed because he has no soul; He hid it separate from his body. Some say he hid it inside an egg, and if someone would break it, Koschei would die.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koshchei


    Design the mysterious and evil Koschei!


    Keep in mind the following:

    - Koschei keeps his soul somewhere outside of his body (not necessarily an egg), show it in your drawing!
    - Koschei is evil and looks frightening, make his appearance mysterious and threatening!

    Good Luck!

    His soul is hidden separate from his body inside a needle, which is in an egg, which is in a duck, which is in a hare, which is in an iron chest (sometimes the chest is crystal and/or gold), which is buried under a green oak tree, which is on the island of Buyan, in the ocean.

    O.o

    Sounds like a good place to stash your porn as well.
    K, back on topic now. ^_^

    This is my first real foray into concept art, but I think I'm going to have to give this one a go. I've been interested in this character for a while now, so this aught to be interesting

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    Are there some more info about what he does or did ?
    All I find is the stuff on wiki, which doesnt say anything about what he does or where he came from. Is he a king, a god or a evil spirit or more a lich ?

    Does he terrorize humans or is he waiting somewhere ?
    Normally mythological creatures are doing something, but this one just seems to be immortal.

    One of my first thoughts was about warcrafts lichs or lich king, then again more into Vlad Drakul and even Rasputin.
