Soulcatcher by dosvidanjia Soulcatcher by dosvidanjia
Great villain from a great story.
Read The Black Company by Glen Cook.

Photoshop CS2 and wacom, 6 hours (over like 7 nights, haha)

Edit - re-uploaded in srgb, colors are much better now =)

Awesome. Although I would assume she would be wearing more clothes in public so no one can tell if shes female or not, If you know what I mean. ;)

Cool! Great work! Soulcatcher rocks! Love The Black Company. It is definitely one of the most neglected fantasy series out there, which is a shame because it was particularly influential to Erikson's Malazan book of the fallen series, and Abercrombrie's First of the Law series, and probably others, as well.

This is great! Too bad Black Company art is so damned uncommon.

Every tried any of the other characters?

Thank you very much for looking. I kind of have this thing with the Black Company where I feel like me trying to paint a Croaker or Lady or Murgen or whoever would kind of be like a kindergartener undertaking to reproduce the ceiling of the sistine chapel in fingerpaint - if you catch my drift. I've loved the Black Company for so long that I think someday, maybe, I might try to tackle it... but Soulcatcher is my favorite and as my art has improved I kind of feel like I owe it to her to repaint her before I try my hand anyone else.

It's always great to meet another fan, the series is so under-appreciated. Thanks for stopping by to comment.

Truly is a great series. Love the crows, but with so many evil characters in the series, can we truly call her a villain? lol

Thanks man - and I agree. Everyone is so pragmatically amoral, or so twisted, that there are no villains - certainly she is no worse than Goblin or One-eye.

Wonderful pic of her ! Oh please, can you draw the others Taken ? At least, just the Limper (my favourite after Soulcatcher, he's so hard to kill XD). Please ! (Yes, I know, I'm really a fanatic of the black company series XD)

Thank you! Limper is next, then Howler. Black Company is amazing, glad to meet another fan. The French covers Didier Graffet did were beautiful, much better than the American release. [link]

It is so, so hard to find decent fanart for this series. Great job!
Despite being one of the most insane of the Taken, she's still my favorite character.

I very much appreciate you looking. The Black Company is so neglected artistically that it's sad, I totally agree. Soulcatcher grabbed me when I first read the book at like, I dunno, 13, and I've never gotten her out of my head. I think I am in love, despite how awesomely disturbed she is.

Well, she does have a certain sort of charm. Or perhaps I should say she possesses a lunacy that we all know and love...? :lol: Ahh, I just love the entire Black Company series.

I wonder if there are some decent images of The Limper on Dev!art...

She was my favorite character aside from Croaker, and I enjoy this interpretation of her appearance. :] nice work.

Amazing piece! What I really love here is the tone you managed to convey with the style, background and shading. This picture IS Soulcatcher! (or at least how she is in my head, haha). *spoilers for others* I was pretty depressed when they killed her off at the beginning, little did I know that they'd be bringing just about everyone back...repeatedly! If you do portraits of more of the ten who were taken you'll be my best friend for life.
