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.

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
3D rendered scene of a charr soldier fighting against a Branded charr. The Branded is covered in obsidian and purple crystals, while the charr soldier is wearing steel armor from the boots to the waist, but nothing above. Despite the lack of protection, he looks rather confident, grinning at the Branded like he's enjoying the challenge.

No sparring partner? When you’re out there in the Brand, you gotta make do with what you have.

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!

Might of the LegionsPrompt 49: IMPLACABLE

Based on the prompt “implacable” by my patron Ripa. Thank you for your support! 💕

3D rendered battle scene featuring two charr, Ripa Soulkeeper and Almorra Soulkeeper, fighting a horde of Branded charr in a desert environment, with a dark purple sky and lightning in the background. They're both wearing full steel armor of the Vigil, wielding short swords and large shields. A magical blue shield surrounds them, and Ripa is striking at one of the Branded with his sword, snarling.

3D scene commission for Ripa, featuring his charr fighting alongside Almorra Soulkeeper, against three Branded charr!

Charr Island IV: PartyPrompt 35: PARTY
3D render featuring three charr on a beach playing "crab limbo" at sunset. Two are holding a wooden stick with a crab sitting on it, while the third is trying to pass under it without getting pinched by the crab.

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

Charr Island III: IndomitablePrompt 34: INDOMITABLE
3D render of a male charr with brown fur, facing a seven-eleven crab sitting on a white rock with a blue sea in the background. The crab looks like it's challenging him, and the charr grins back, expression somewhere between amused and intrigued. In the far distance, slightly out of focus, there's another charr swimming in the water and watching the scene.

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.)

3D Art — April 15, 2021

SacrificePrompt 26: SACRIFICE
3D render of an armored charr guardian, viewed from the back. It is night time, and he's a dark silhouette guarding a large steel gate with a magical blue shield surrounding him. Beyond him there's a battlefield shrouded in mist, with a bright beacon in the distance lighting up the sky. You can just barely make out the outline of an enormous dragon wing hovering over everything.

Some must fight, so that all may be free.
