The Lure of Sin

“Killing man is no true feat.  Your body is a feast to their senses so let it entertain them as they ignore the poison dulling their adulterous minds.  Let them seek mercy where it cannot be found for you are my gift to the demons that lurk among us.  For you are Amonrah’s bane.  Our blade.”

-- Abelan

 

 

Similiar theme to what I’ve drawn recently, but I might be going somewhere with this one.  Character is a demon hunter in the Dragonbound era of my world, known by her enemies and allies alike as ‘White Sin’.  Inspiration wise, I was originally going with something akin to Red Sonja but her design changed over the course of drawing this.  Still not completely settled on the staff blade's design but otherwise I'm happy with how this turned out.  And yes, the whole 'scantly clad' trope has a bit of meaning with this one but lore on that soon!

why going half-naked in such places?

Part of her character.  White Sin (her alias) is a demon hunter who lures her prey by enticing their baser instincts.  As the demons she hunts are usually of lustful nature she exploits their desires much like a succubus seduces men.  Yet there's also her use of alchemy in which she consumes a variety of potions that aid her in her work.  Their like involves changing the chemistry in her body, which excretes a phermone through her skin that has a variety of effects on her enemy, be it lulling them into a false sense of security, aggravate them, etc.

Hence why she's half-naked.  Easier for the phermones to do their work.  Otherwise she gets around in a cloak that covers her head to toe when she's not hunting prey and is rarely seen in public, so few men ever get the pleasure of seeing her unless they're her mark.

got it, but why isn't she emitting it ? I mean, some "aura" around her or something?
Aikurisu's avatar
Hmm, maybe.  I like to think of it as something that can be better conveyed with her surroundings, that the 'aura' is its effect on it which is why the shadowy tentacles are drawn towards her.  I prefer to make stuff like that subtle, more symbolic. =)

Like it! Well not the lure of sin but the artwork XD
Aikurisu's avatar
Thanks. =P  lol, I should have more drawn for her soon.
pizzawithoutcheese's avatar
Neat. Mind if I do a fanart piece?
Aikurisu's avatar
That'd be awesome!  I rarely get fanart so I'm looking forward to it. =D

If you care to wait a few days I should have something more detailed for her.  This was more of a scene work. =)
pizzawithoutcheese's avatar
Oh, very cool! It's on now!
I only ever do fanart if I really, really like the style.

Those shadow tentacles are gonna do things . . . >.>

Aikurisu's avatar
