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.

SO what if these aren't 100% cannon, they are fantastic!  I am currently re-reading this series and it is wonderful to see art for it.
