Ikati by sandara Ikati by sandara
Fanart of the Ikati from C.S. Friedman's Magister's Trilogy.

My not-very-accurate take on her unique beasts.

From what I can remember from the books, they had insect-like wings, multiple pairs of them.

They had talons, but not sure how many pairs of legs they actually have. (I just gave them 2 here, since I was running out of space to put legs!)

Long whip like tail with a spike on the end.

Triangular snake-like head. (I just went for the regular dragon heads here)

Insect eyes (Too small to see here! XD)

iridescent scales all over their bodies.

Spikes on their backs.

I love your version. In the first book of the series you can see what they are supposed to look like though the art is small. What you did here is far better. better.

I finished reading the last book in the series about a month ago... and I can't recall how many legs they had either :o I don't recall Ms. Friedman stressing the how-many-legs as much as how pretty they were in the light, the bug-like wings, and how utterly vicious they are outside of the Wrath. Beautiful take on the Ikati, you've definitely caught their ferocious nature to a "T" :love:
