Kel_AgeMeme by ShadowOfSolace Kel_AgeMeme by ShadowOfSolace
Download for Fullsize

I tried to fit a large segment of text across the center blank space, but it started to smother the drawings-which simply could not be allowed XD

So here is some additional background if your confused/interested.

Kel's History in a Nutshell
Kel was among the last pups born during Ares confinement in the Moonlit prison. Confounded by the continents sealing, Kels pack and numerous others attempted to continue on with life as they knew it, serving the Royal Families of Ares and protecting the towns that they inhabitated. As times grew evermore desperate and the demons began to turn upon themselves, entire family lines were eradicated, and the packs soon adopted individual homes as their own. Kel and his people cherished these survivors, and did all that they could to flourish and provide for their adopted kin- Until the High Demon came.

Armed and determined, he ignored the families and attacked the packs directly. Those that survived were branded with wicked collars fashioned from the talons of their fallen kin, and led away into captivity under the High Demons reign. The few that escaped were never seen from again..
With the packs serving as his slaves and sentinels, the High Demon constructed a mighty fortress where the warrior clans of Ares could gather with purpose to prepare for the future of Ares as one. Kel and his kin served in this fashion until the Eclipse shattered the seal and Ares again settled upon the crest of Zion. With the nations restored Caelius and Ares resumed their fighting, and as the grand fortress fell under attack Kel fought at the High Demons side until the fires overtook them. Touched by his loyalty, The High Demon crafted his seal into Kels collar, granting him human form and a means to escape and survive...

Anyway, I have no desire to go into how long this actually took, so suffice to know this isn't even HALF of what I'd like to do or say about the Caindreads and Kel as a whole.
*le sigh*
Sorry for being so slow

Okay, I know it's been a while since you uploaded this, but... it's been nagging at me. Since Kel's human form is very Caindread-y, as he grows older, will his human form have the same characteristics as his Caindread form? Like, when he becomes an Elder Caindread, will he still have flaming tail/horns even in his humanoid state?

This is probably an easy question, but I just wanted a definite answer, cuz I'm a stickler for details.

Sol, this is absolutely gorgeous. I adored the whole species before, and now... Just... no words for it. Each era of a Caindread's life are so similar and different at the same time... The babies are small and sweet and I really wish that I could pick all of those little sweethearts up and just moosh them to my face and smell their puppy smell, and then there's the ancients... So regal and wise-looking, but also with a sort of sadness at the loss of their fire... As sad as I would be if Kel were to grow that old, I think it would delight me, to see him so majestic and somber and gentle. Maybe it's just me being a dork, but I've always had a soft spot for wise, powerful, ancient beings that still run about playing with children.

I honestly, truly hope to see more of Kel soon, because I must let you know, whenever I see something of yours in my inbox, and I see Kel, my heart leaps up in anticipation of what I will learn.

WHAT I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR....EVER SINCE....EVER XDDD...-RUNS IN CIRCLES SQUEALING- AMMGGG AMMG BABY KEL IS SO DARN CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTE YYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGJKSFHAJKHFJSKDHFJKSHFKJSHFSJDSFKDHFKS :iconstephencolbertomgplz: I'M SO HAAAAAAAAAAPPPYY RIGHT NOOOOOOOOOOWWWW FUUUUU!!!! GOODJOBGOODJOBGOODJOBBB!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -froths from mouth- I CAN'T....CANNOT EVEN....JUST...SKJFHJKSDHFKSF. Reading all that really....really left me in the mood for petting a dog 8I;; I really enjoyed knowing about it all...Especially where kel was before he got together with Emi, and how he met Evah. Not gunna lie, reading about kel's old form made me a little sad...I really love his character...so the thought of him dying is not one of my favs. Its pretty deep, the way they go out with a said 'Flame'. It makes me wish that they would have been more valued and loved in their Life time....just..shown overzealous amounts of gratitude....; One final thing...I always wondered what those slits were for...XDD extremely hot organs...sounds kinda painful, but i get it...This also answered what the spires were for....IT ANSWERED SO MANY QUESTIONS....fffff i just wanna ....-MOOSHES KEL'S FACE OUT OF LOVE- One thing that also struck me, was our previously mentioned concept of loyalty in a conversation we had long ago. I really like how part of his story turned out, with the demon lord and what not giving him a humanish form. It made me smile...and tear up a little XDD;;

SOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLIE I can't express how MUCH I love this one ;u;
Those pups are so cute, and you did great on explaining all of those quick little things about Caindreads, which makes it even more enjoyable (even if I'm sure you could have written for like... hours about them x'D). The little details are all so well thought ;u; I have to say my favorites are the white babies/toddlers/children and the two last ones. You gave the Elder something majestic, imposing that still can be felt in the Ancient, yet at a calmer, quieter level... And I love that the fire is slowly going extinct on that last one ;u; It's something purely GENIUS. The evolution of a fire, starting from little sparkles before exploding with a blast, flaming strongly until it loses strength, and extinguishes with a light blow -- when minutes before it was burning high and strong... You amaze me. This is amazing. Thank you for sharing that with us ;u;

You know, to me art is not necessarily about the form, but about the content. Something is art if it can make people think and feel things. It's all about details, subtlety, feelings and interpretation.
And despite being a 'reference', this piece is art to me. The little details really got to me ;u; I should be the one thanking you for sharing this whole awesomeness ;u;
