Ripa Soulkeeper

Narrow Escape3D scene

Scene commission for Ripa, following the Branded Fight scene I created for him in 2021. Looks like Ripa and Almorra escaped—barely.

HuntedPrompt 118: EVOLUTION
3D render of a massive cat-like creature with dark brown fur in a jungle environment. It’s on all fours as if on the prowl, with large horns and teeth, and black spikes growing from its shoulders. The creature is illuminated from a light source held by the viewer, and looking directly at them, as if it was just discovered. Its eyes are glowing bright green, like those of a cat at night.

You are being hunted.

Force of NaturePrompt 110: UNSTOPPABLE
3D render of a fully armored charr (Ripa Soulkeeper) standing in front of an erupting volcano, with a giant lava flow coming towards him. Ripa is ready for battle with his sword in hand, but looks a bit lost against this “opponent”.

Even the mightiest warrior has to realize that some opponents are above their pay grade.

Charr and MicePrompt 102: EMPATHIZE
Close-up 3D render of a small house mouse sitting in a charr’s giant armored paw, trying to reach the tip of his thumb claw. The charr’s face fills most of the background (slightly out of focus) as he is watching the mouse in fascination.

Since I had so much fun with that mouse game recently, I thought I’d try modeling one! Here is my patron Ripa’s charr, demonstrating that charr and mice CAN coexist peacefully.

Charr HospitalityPrompt 94: HOSPITALITY
3D render of a male charr (Ripa Soulkeeper) in a cook’s outfit. He’s looking at the viewer, holding a butcher’s knife and standing in front of a grill with a large chunk of red meat on it, the light from the fire illuminating everything from below. There is text in New Krytan on his apron that means “some must cook, so that all can eat”.

Charr may not have the most refined hospitality, but their cooking skill makes up for it… as long as you don’t mind steak. Lots of it. For the prompt HOSPITALITY from my patron Ripa. Thank you for your support! 💖

OutflankedPrompt 86: FLANKER
3D render of a male charr (Ripa Soulkeeper) fighting a pack of five pocket raptors in a dense jungle. He’s wearing full Vigil battle armor, except for his boots, which lie on the ground behind him as if he was just taking a break. Ripa is looking down at his feet in shock and surprise while the pocket raptors are taking advantage of the situation by snatching at his unprotected paws.

“Flanking” usually means attacking from the side, but I learned today that it can also mean flashing your ankles. Ripa unfortunately managed to get into a situation involving both. For the prompt FLANKER from my patron Ripa—thank you for your support!

Physics & Blood WhiskeyPrompt 78: FULCRUM
3D render of two charr in a bar (Ripa Soulkeeper on the left, Kianga Snowstorm on the right) standing on a plank balanced on top of a whiskey barrel. They’re probably drunk, wearing armor only up to the waist, one hand on each other’s shoulder and the other raised holding a whiskey bottle. More bottles and barrels are strewn all over scene.

This week’s prompt is FULCRUM from my patron Ripa, and our two charr have kindly volunteered to demonstrate this physical concept, with the help of a barrel of Blood Whiskey. Or two. As always, thank you for your support! 💖

AppeasementPrompt 71: APPEASEMENT

“An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.” (Winston Churchill) A more abstract scene for the prompt “appeasement” from my patron Ripa—thank you for your support! I don’t get to work with grayscale scenes very often and this was a fun opportunity.

Friendly SparPrompt 64: DARING

No sparring partner? When you’re out there in the Brand, you gotta make do with what you have. For the prompt DARING from my patron Ripa - thank you for your support!

DictatorshipPrompt 56: DICTATORSHIP

I’ve always found it interesting that despite their militaristic society, the charr don’t seem very fond of the idea of having a new Khan-Ur as their supreme leader. Inspired by the prompt DICTATORSHIP from my patron Ripa. Thank you for your support!

Peacemaker's HammerPrompt 52: PEACEMAKER

A Peacemaker’s Hammer, scaled up to charr size - because the bigger the weapon, the more peace it can make, right? 👀 Based on the prompt “peacemaker” from my patron Ripa. Thank you for your support!

3D Art — November 5, 2021

There are ways to make a charr talk. Today’s scene was kindly sponsored by my patron Ripa! I’d like to assure everyone that no charr were harmed in the making of this scene, and all were properly fed afterwards.

Charr Island IV: PartyPrompt 35: PARTY

Not sure if Crab Limbo is a thing, but with charr it probably would be.

Charr Island III: IndomitablePrompt 34: INDOMITABLE

Looks like dinner on Charr Island isn’t going down without a fight…

EnterprisePrompt 28: ENTERPRISE

For this month’s prompt “Enterprise” from my patron Ripa, we are going where no charr has gone before. (No pocket raptor either.)

SacrificePrompt 26: SACRIFICE

Some must fight, so that all may be free. A little scene based on the prompt “sacrifice” from my patron Ripa. This one was of course inspired by the Battle of Claw Island. Never forget!
