Lair Environment: Research

For the environment, Hyperborea has been described as a place from the North, somewhere cold and full of snow. During this process further investigation will be attempted to give me more understanding on how I really want my environment to look like.

Ice crystals
Here I’ve looked into ice crystals. This could symbolize the fact that he’s still a god/King and even though he’s in the middle of nowhere, he has a special place where this crystals can only be found in he’s lair.

The picture above shows the cave of Superman which is a special place as he is the only one that is allowed to enter. This is because it’s the only place where he can speak to he’s guardian also a place when he really focus he’s mind.

To me these crystals come across as something peaceful. To change this I would add some blood textures to show violence and death in the surroundings. These ice crystals could form his throne where he can take a sit after eating and decapitating the humans. Figure 3 looks more place and modem and that kind of throne wouldn’t be found in a place surrounded snow and mountains, whilst Figure 4 is more of a structure that the character himself could make. Still at figure 4 we could see how the throne is more exaggerated, huge and scary with icy ice spikes uprooting from beneath. The ice crystals could also be in form of the cage that he would use to imprison the captured ones. This is so they wouldn’t be able to break it with fist. I would also build the this cage with bones, huge bones left over from what the character has killed e.g. Whale Bone, these

bones are huge and strong. Using this to create a cage reflex’s the power of the character in killing and also in strength as he built the bone cage.

Igloo
Igloo is a type of shelter built with snow which was originally developed and created by the Inuit. Igloos are found in a cold, snow environment where people use this to keep warm mostly known in the Canadian Central Artic and Greenland’s Thule. Applying this to my character will be in the perfect lair/cave where he can use as shelter. As there are three different sizes of Igloo I will be going for the medium size because my character would like to still feel as a god and would also need little space to keep the spare body’s that he’s killed.
