For those of you familiar with Gravel, you'll recognize the term right away. I'm looking for a new member of the major seven - The overseers of Britain's occult hierarchy.
Contest closes december 5 @ 6pm EST.
I'm a huge fan of Ellis and his take on magic (it always makes me think of Clive Barker's imaginings on the same subject). I apparently have only scratched the surface as to what he has done but this has me extremely curious. I'm not familiar with these comics but would love to toss some art like skills down on something creative like this. I guess if I had a question it would be, how familiar with the series do I need to be to participate? I've read the bio and can always look around online for more info, but will I need to have read any issues to create something unique out of this?
My take on this one....
I have to admit I am still a blank slate on my take to this but relied more on my gut feel on how this character can more or less flow with the entire story line.
I am now determined to regain my talent in inking. Thanks for the heads up... I should start practicing with my inking.
Thanks for the compliment. I guess, I decided to venture again in inking and now coloring to just put myself one notch higher and outside my comfort zone in our artist show-off showdown. Life is a risk anyway.
At least I can say that most of you guys appreciate my pencils and thus, I have at least my stepping stone. :-)
Wow most of us thought of doing women, LOL.
Here's mine, like the others I hope I did this right. :D
I call her "Bellona V". She uses a whip of discord, which was created from threads of the tunic from the Greek goddess of the same name. She uses it to ensnare violent spirits and dispense them into the nether.
She also has a scrying eye which enables her to see such spirits and she also uses it when chasing and capturing them, it gives her heightened sight in the natural world as well.
This is now MY OFFICIAL ENTRY.
I, like most other submitters had no clue what 'Combat Magician' meant before this. I have to admit though it sounded cool, and after trying to dig up any info I definitely will be checking out the books. Looks like a really awesome story concept, big thanks LT for turning this on to us. That being said, I had to wing it on storyline details and fitting it into that world. I also opted to go the chick route as it's always more fun doing girls :)
Here is Melissa (Missy) Tress, aka Ms. Tress. She could be compared to the 'Enchantress' in power & attitude, except her influence is magically based rather than being a goddess. She can influence male spirits, dead or alive, and is often called upon to extract information or sway unruly male agents to cooperate. She has a habit of having her own agendas however and because of her insatiable appetites she is only handled by female superiors resourceful enough to keep her in check and on track with their mission. She portrays herself as completely independent and uncommitted to her slaves, however, it's been hinted by some of her superiors that she is really a hopeless romantic and it's considered by them as her weakness.
