Art Drop | The Shivasteed

New animal artist Bethany Berg is done with the first official animal of Swordsfall, the Shivasteed! It's utterly majestic!

- Art Drop | The Shivasteed

The Shivasteed is one of the tallest animals on Tikor, and yet also one of the most gentle. They graze amongst the oldest and deepest parts of Western Garuda, casually gnawing on the top brush. Legends say that a Shivasteed got its name from the only being to ride one, the ancient deity Shiva.

I love all the subtle detail on this animal. The way the light blue flows across them gives them a magical but grounded look that I just love! My goal in Swordsfall is always to have the animals have the same kind of individual flair as humans. But also not just make them look “strange” for no reason.

Also, talk about getting bashed to death, lol. Would NOT mess with one.

Creator and Author of Swordsfall. He's a longtime omni-nerd who grew up during the classic days of Toonami, TechTV, and Transformers. However, as a black man in the hobby, he found himself longing for more stories that told the adventures of people that looked like him. Creating Swordsfall has not only been an effort to be the change he wanted to see but also as his own personal journey.
