primaL 001 by Troy-Stith primaL 001 by Troy-Stith
I just put the finishing touches on this custom MadL commission last night. It's name is "primaL". Platform integrity was of high importance to the commissioner, so I went down a different path for the texturing this time.

Here's primaL's backstory:

Although no one is certain how long the statue of primaL has stood, it's story has been passed down from generation to generation. Legends say that primaL was once the ""Great Provider" of the land, meeting and conversing with shamans on a transcendental plane. Telling them the ways of the land and how to manipulate it for the gain of their people. As with all knowledge, too much can poison even the clearest of minds. Soon the tribes of the shamans wanted exclusive access to the words of primaL, warring with one another until all was plundered and razed. Leaving the tribespeople without homes and or food, this became known as the "Great Punishment". The spirit of primaL was no longer accessible to the shamans, condemning the men to death unless they learned to work with one another again. Mending their broken relationships, the tribes began anew and as one. While primaL has never returned to help, the people of the land still make the journey to the monolithic statue to pay reverence of it's teachings.

Thanks! I've heard that comparison quite a bit. I'll have to do something for it later on ;)

I'd like him even if there wasn't that stand with the little tree and stuff. I like his sort of simple yet sturdy design. Very nice.
