The Vril-ya Key was found by Dr. Robert Bly while on an expedition in Sudan. Upon returning home and temporarily retiring from fieldwork, he hid the Key in plain sight by giving it to his young daughter Shelby Bly who kept the pendant close into adulthood. Robert has never had the chance to tell Shelby the true significance of this pendant so she’ll have to find out all its mysteries for herself over the course of her adventure.
I tried to give the metal on the pendant an “aged” or “ancient” look while crystals are mainly intact. This prop has two material settings, one for the pendant in most situations and a second for when it needs to be glowing via IDL plus a little postwork. It took forever to get the crystals to look right but I think I finally managed what I was going for with this concept version.
