3 Meters tall, shifts its density, shape, and size, controls time and will send you to eternal pain on a tree of thorns. You never know where it will be, it may exist in several time peroids if it desires, its said to move faster than light. Surrounded in complete mystery, the object of fear, hatred, and even worship. Its origins are completely unknown and you do NOT want to be around when its pissed.

This is for the Hyperion fans.

Hmmm... I can't tell from the description: you are aware it has 4 arms, right?

Kidding. Amazing artwork.

Very good. Shiny, pointy, and generally evil looking. Except he needs two more arms.

I'm aware he has 4 arms, I chose not to add them.

Oh, I didn't see that someone else had said the same thing. Sorry about that.

Amazing job, though. I don't know if I made that clear enough.

"The shrike is your muse." Sad King Billy to Martin Silinius. Hyperion Cantos. Love it. Just have to note as a writer and purist - the Shrike has four arms according to Simmons. But will fav it anyway for the quality. Well done.

Yeh I made a note about that in my comments, I'll just say hes hiding them since he can shift his shape. :) Thanks a lot for the comment!

Hmmm... Why only two hands? If my memory don't fail me, he must have four hands.

p.s. creepy guy...

Yes 4 hands, you're right, but he shifts his size and shape, so I just pretend his other 2 arms are hiding.

Nice one, the Shrike is one of my favourite creatures and this image really fits the character. The only critique I have is that the head looks a bit like Voltron from the Transformers movie, but nice work anyway!

I'm not a fan either, indeed I made a mistake: Voltron is not a Transformer now that I think about it :O

I love love LOVE this. It looks ready for action. Although, I can't help but wonder, where are it's other two arms?

:iconsynax444:
synax444 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2009
I was waiting for a true fan to spot the missing 2 arms ;) I couldnt get them to look right so I just left him with 2, since he can shift his density and shape, I guess he is just in a smaller more compact form here :P

I am so glad you liked it! :)

Good job! But didn't he have 4 arms? And he certainly wasn't a god =D And his origins are quite clear by the end of the 4th book =D
Anyway, great vision! And thanks for drawing him.
Simmons rule!

:iconsynax444:
synax444 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2009
Yes he did, but since he shifts density and shape, I guess you can say he put 2 of them away. :laughing:
And anyone with all those powers is a god to me :)
I havent read the 4th! only first 2
You clearly know much more than me :D
Thanks for the comment!! :D

Endymion and Rise of Endymion are not so great as the first two books, they are lighter and more like sci-fi adventure, but have some deep ideas too and make reader think. Overall worthy of reading.
And thank You, for the illustration to this book, which is my favorite sci-fi 8)

:iconsynax444:
