Welcome to the Incarnate Process episode 9 – Apsu Props Concepts
This episode shows in a gallery the silhouette concepts for High King Apsu’s Ylem Staff and possible crowns. There was a large amount of discussion posts for these, most of which consisted of Jason elaborating on his choices for Apsu. Since Apsu is a highly significant factor in the project, we wanted to make sure everything was covered.
So without further ado, here were those comments:
But the most glaring significance to this symbol as it pertains to Apsu is this: in the front of crown number 3, we can see that the triangle in the front of this crown has a very powerful resemblance to the upper half of the philosopher’s stone symbol, representing the spiritual world. I would like for us to make the proper adjustment to the geometry of this triangle in the crown to match the angles of the classical symbol as best we can.Which brings me to part 2. I think it would be even more awesome then, if we had a gemstone of Ylem socketed into this space giving Apsu’s diadem an undeniably distinctive look. See attached image.Which brings me to the staff! And, ironically, there are some more symbolic finds! I spent a good portion of my afternoon preparing this next one.I will post the images and information regarding the staff in the next post.
