Kylar Stern by Sykugen Kylar Stern by Sykugen
Rough painting for the Suvudu Cage Match 2012.

This is my quick rendition of Kylar Stern from the Night Angel Trilogy written by the genius otherwise known as Brent Weeks. If you have any respect for wetwork or assassins in general, I implore you read the books. You'll laugh, you'll cry, it'll change your life.

Brent Weeks' website is here. [link]
Buy his books. Read them. You can thank me later.

The Character List for the Cage Match can be found here [link]
If you're interested in submitting some art for the match up, they've created a group on DA, here [link]

You did Kylar some justice.

You should totally do one of Kylar in the Mask of Judgement, with Retribution.

EPIC. I really need to re-read that series. I blew through it way too fast, like I pretty much always do.

Yes
Good.
I've seen your AC art around the fandom, I had no idea you were into NA. You just got about a thousand times more awesome then before!

Why thank you, awesomeness is what I strive for.
Lol, I'm kidding. Thanks, it's so great to hear from NAT fans on DA. Even better that you're an AC fan too!

They kinda go hand in hand though. I'm still waiting for an idea to come where I can smash them together in a crossover, just so Altair can be totally in awe of Durzo >D Cause Durzo is a BAMF!! and makes Altair look like a god damn five year old, Ezio too, and probably Connor. Guuuuh, Durzo.

Hahaha, Durzo's got 700 years on them, they haven't got a chance. Though I wouldn't want to disrespect them. They were masters of their own time.

Damn right!
Though think of the classic fandom trope of immortal!Altair meeting up with Durzo. Aaaahahahaha, for some reason I just imagine them staring at each other, sizing each other up and then shaking hands and being "you're all right" and then going and killing whoever needs killing >D Meanwhile everyone else in their group is just 'wtf just happened?'

Finally some great work on Kyalr, or any Night Angel character for the matter. Great job. I would love to see a version of him with him Ka'kari.

I was going to hire them from out library, but someone else is borrowing them.
*scowl*

So I'll either check the OTHER library, or just go ahead and buy the first one. xD

I first saw this image with the cage matches and thought it was a fantastic representation of Kylar.
It's really well done; I love the intensity of his eyes. :D
