Artist's Description

Just having a little fun tonight.

name of work: Witchblade. pencil sketch 20-Jun-2013. filled in with colored pencils and used black Sharpee for the black lines and her eyes. Applied some textures later in ipiccy.

Drawn while watching the second two episodes of Witchblade. LOVE IT. Witchblade is an American television series that aired on TNT from 2001 to 2002. The series is based on the Witchblade comic book series. Yancy Butler starred as Sara Pezzini. Witchblade was ranked seventh in the Top 10 Basic Cable Dramas for 2002 and it was and remains the highest rated TV series to be cancelled.

Whether this is accurate representation of the Witchblade drawings in the comic books or not is immaterial. this was my fun representation of the woman heroine who wears the Witchblade.

Since I am new to this story, just beginning to watch it, I got background overview of the story from Wikipedia:

The series follows Sara Pezzini, a NYPD homicide detective who comes into possession of the Witchblade, a supernatural, sentient artifact. The weapon has bonded with various other women throughout history, such as Joan of Arc. Sara struggles to hone the powers of the Witchblade and fend off those with a nefarious interest in it, especially entrepreneur Kenneth Irons.

The Witchblade is a male entity of both light and dark which represents both order and chaos. It is the offspring of the primal forces of the universe, the Darkness and the Angelus, and therefore acts as a balance between the two entities. The Witchblade is semi-organic, a union of the genes of the Darkness and the Angelus. Because of its semi-organic structure it is able to create a symbiosis-like bond with a host.

The Witchblade was discovered in modern times in Greece by Kenneth Irons, but before he found it, it had many hosts. When not in use, the Witchblade can look like an ornate, jewel-encrusted, right-handed gauntlet or bracelet. The Witchblade only chooses females as hosts and any wielder of the Witchblade who is unworthy will lose their arm. It forms a symbiosis-like relationship with its host, who can hear the Witchblade. When used, it expands across the body of the host. The amount and coverage of the armor depends on the level of the threat. This armor can produce extensions of itself that can form swords, other stabbing weapons, hooks, chains, shields, and wings, enabling the wielder to fly. It may also become temperamental if the host chooses not to use it. When wielded, it can shoot energy blasts from the hand or sword, fire projectile darts, and extrude whip-like grapples to attack or to climb. The Witchblade is also a lock pick and can heal wounds. The Witchblade can re-animate the dead, show the host scenes of great trauma, and allow the host to relive experiences from past hosts as dreams.
