Mortal Coil by AlectorFencer Mortal Coil by AlectorFencer
>>>Listen to the original soundtrack here: [link] <<<


From the mountain tops
To the depths of the ocean
Raw energy is spent in a name
That is immortal


The fall from grace is never gentle.
In a tail spin of chaos,
The god’s ‘IM’ breaks away
And he becomes but a man.


Finds him bleeding and broken.
As she tends to his healing
Learning comes to teach.
Deeds soon follow;
patriarch of godly ascendency.

Climbing this pathway the ‘IM’ is won back
And the mortal is restored to immortality.

We sometimes need to break a circle in order to grow stronger to be able to reach the stars in the distance. This is a project I have thought about for a long time to collect as many ideas as possible to depict a story of a very deep character, focusing on the one and single character only. I started it some months ago and was able to complete it just these days. In time I added more ideas, read more, grew more into the story.

This is a gift for a very great friend, who supports me and who sacrifices a lot of time to listen to me and to give valuable advices. I wanted to give him something back, at least something visual because my words are by far not as strong and inspiring like his.

This is my way of appreciation. And finally, I hope I did this amazing character, Kayin, justice.

It turned out to be a collaboration with Fox Amoore since he worked on an amazing character theme to interpret the story of Kayin. In the end and due to his incredible patience this turned out a bigger project than planned.

>>>Please listen to the soundtrack along with the artwork:

Kayin is Wandering Pariah

theres an amazing amount of emotion coming from it, only made more interesting and more genuine, by all the layers on the picture. the Lycan, and the spirits of lycan's behind him, the phantoms reaching for the sky, the wings, the clock, the chains, the wind, the destruction, and the tattoos on his chest, pulled from so many eras and cultures around the world, its just entrancing. Oh and lets not forget that fact that its invoking primal emotions people are always trying to control and forget, which makes it that much more refreashing and AH-MAH-ZING!!! (Sorry for this little rant but i really like and appriciate this peice!)

This is so gorgeous. The colors... the movement of the picture... the feelings that radiate from it... beautiful.
