Concept - The Sorceress by 0laffson Concept - The Sorceress by 0laffson
Another concept of a character that should appear far away in my story, which means I will probably never draw her ^^ It was anyways a good opportunity to work more on my cat people, both in a physical and cultural way. It was incredibly funny to work on the body paint :D

She doesn't have a name, they just call her "the Sorceress". She can sometimes glimpse the future (or it's better to say the different possible futures) and can make some pretty nasty magical tricks. Maybe I'll make another drawing with her but not soon.

Made with watercolour and acrylic. The original is  14 x 18  centimeters.
Any comment, critique or suggestion is more than welcome :D

The weapon reminds me of a Illyrian type of weapon from the time around the  4th Century BC

That's interesting, I didn't consider such ancient weapons. They can be a good inspiration for the future, thanks! :D

The weapon she's wielding is not an existing weapon but it's inspired by Central African swords and knives, like the second one in this picture media.liveauctiongroup.net/i/1… . Many had really weird shapes.

Very nice! That rich red on pale grey works great! It would be a real shame if she had never made an appearance again.
I was wondering - How do magic spells work with or against blades, arrows and sticks in your world?

Thank you! :D  Not very effective, magic here is very rare and more subtle, like visions, illusions, maybe animated corpses... someone who can throw a good, old fashioned fireball is pretty rare.

I wanted to try a fantasy world where the "magic past" is almost gone. Humans rule, other races are almost extinct and so is magic...  maybe I'll throw in even some firearm, have to decide ^^

Superb is what this is! Clap
There should be a mod for this in Skyrim, like, I know that Khajiit come from warm deserts and would not wear what they use in Elsweyr while wandering Skyrim, but at least they could use typical Khajiit clothing adapted to the cold, with sleeves and more layers.

Alas, I've never played Skyrim and have no experience with it and its mods XD  I know how Khajiits look like though and I agree, some lighter clothes would fit them well!

Fav'd, not so much for the artwork but for the idea of different possible futures. I don't believe in fate, but free will, and the idea that there can be more than one possible future is a good one.

If you don't say that she was a female, I think that is a guy, specially for the portrait below :XD:. Despite that minimal detail, is a very awesome design, I'm agree with many comments about this point :D.

0laffson Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yep I know, but I don't like them too look too much feminine, and that's also the reason for the small breasts ^^

Thank you so much! :D

FrxPlanner Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2015
I see, but you could try to use more the eyelash to stand out that the character is a female, is not necessary that the character be a top model, is just that I think that it should be easier distinguish a male from a female, unless that you're working on a special culture or some kind like that :XD:. Anyway, is just a little advice and thanks so much to you for bring us awesome drawings :).

I'm really digging the tribal look you did here. I notice the headshot in the bottom right has different markings, is that meant to be an alternate design?

I think it looks more war paint-ish also, where as the other could be for some ritual or something.. in my opinion at least XD

She is really beautiful with face paint that fit the color of her fu and you did a great job and got to the "African" feel of clothes remind my a bit of the Aztec clothes to :).
