Mordsith Don't Giggle by Antichristofer Mordsith Don't Giggle by Antichristofer
This one is pretty "Comic Book", but I didn't have too much time to spend on this.

Characters from Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series.

Sorry if I got the hair color wrong, but I was too lazy to go back and double check :) The braid on Cara was omitted on purpose however.

OH MY GOD THE CHIPMONKS! I remember this scene, how wonderful it was, then how it bloody crushed me when Raina dies from the plague and it's the place where they fed chipmonks.... I cried so damn hard, I don't care if the Mordsith were Dominatrix's, that scene was sad and I loved those girls!

:heart: I forgot about this part! Aww! ^v^ I think it's awesome that you did their hair more casual than the usual Mord-Sith way, it fits the mood of the picture better.

I love it! The Mord-Sith are some of the most interesting characters from the books, too. Cara is by far my favorite.

I fell in love with this immediately :aww: I am in complete awe of you and quite jealous as well :XD:

I assume these are Berdine and Raina along with Cara? I love how perfect you've depicted them, just as I'd like to see them :heart: different, without the braids though, but fantastic nonetheless.

I'm so envious, it's ridiculous! :)

Don't be jealous! I've just invested alot of time into trying to create artwork. (probably more than is healthy)

thanks for the watch too.

You're very welcome, most deserved :nod:

And I'll have to remain jealous. I try but my females are never quite right without references, and I can't color people with my pencils. I ruin them; I think that means I should go practice that then. :XD: You've made me want to go draw really badly.

And very welcome for that as well.

As usual, great work. I enjoy seeing this lovely scene from the book in drawing. Berdine and Raina look just perfect : exactly my image of the two Mord'Sith.

May I ask a question ? Why did you choose to represent the Mord-Sith without their braid (loose hair or a ponytail for Cara) ?

By the way, I found the hair color right, anyway, as the books' descriptions ;)

@Kiui-san : I see the the leather in deep brown, not really black :)

You found the hair color right? I thought Raina's hair was black and Berdine's was brown.
I may be quite wrong, but that was my very distinct impression, so if you could tell me where you found that description, I would be grateful.

One way or another, this pic rocks, though, wouldn't you say? :D

Hum, for Raina's hair, in the book 3 (Blood of the Fold), you can find a description saying that they're in deep brown. In the same chapter, it says that Berdine has her hair "chatain" (in french), so light brown, more blond than brown. But I'm french, so the text has been translated. It's possible that the meaning between the two languages American and French has changed ;)

Ok, I get it.
I don't get the red hair in the pic, though, or maybe it's just showing up red on my comp screen. X/

I left the braids off because I was trying to make them appear a bit more "care free". Like they are finally letting go of some of their mordsithy habits.....or something :) I actually wasnt sure if Berdine and Raina even had a braid, but I knew Cara did.

I didn't want to make the scene too cutesy, but I didn't want it to be too harsh either...if that makes sense :P

Thanks for the comment, glad you like it!

All right, I get it. Thanks for the answer. And yes, Berdine and Raina had a braid : it's the symbol of the Mord-Sith profession. But I understand completly what you wanted to represent by leaving the braids off. And I like this idea of "free Mord-Sith" very much :)

Congratulations again :)

Of course they don't giggle... they wouldn't partake in anything so... so... un-Mord-Sith-like. No, Mord-Sith don't giggle... they laugh their heads off if they must, but they never giggle.

This is great, I live Mord-Sith.

I'm assuming that on the left those are Berdine and Raina, am I right? But question question. Why are they wearing black leather? Unless it's their brown leather and my eyes are dying out. :D

Antichristofer Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2010
yes its supposed to be B and R.

You know, on the monitor that I used when I painted it, it was a really dark brown...but on this computer It does look rather black. I have yet to master monitor calibration :) (or even begun to learn really)

Well technically it is a dark brown. Its not black, that's plain enough. It's just that I imagined their brown leather a lighter brown. Not too light, like tan. I was just saying since when I saw the preview picture, they looked somewhat like ninjas. And I'm very against ninjas. Mord-Sith eat ninjas for breakfast. (And vampires for lunch. take that Edward.)

But now that I look at it better, it is brown. And your art is beautiful as always.

No, I see black as well. I think Chris has been influenced by Cassa.
