Sara Pezinni's Witchblade by Forty-Fathoms Sara Pezinni's Witchblade by Forty-Fathoms
- This picture took: Forever. It was so frustrating getting the armor just right for Sara and then getting the expression along with all the waviness of her hair was tricky too. You seriously have no idea, how long it took to do this. It was so nit-picky but then again, I'm a perfectionist too. Anyways, this is Sara Pezinni from the comic, Witchblade. She's also currently in the limited running series, Artifacts. Usually, people "sex-up" Sara a lot, and while sometimes I say its okay, other times, its completely ridiculous and too much, so I tried to tone it down but keep her sexy all the same. The armor took a lot of effort because of the shine and making it look smooth. Anyways, feedback and comments are always welcome! :] Side note: I noticed after drawing this, she looks a bit like Kate Beckinsale. =p



Utensil(s) Used: .7mm mechanical pencil, HB, 4B, 8B, and Q-tips for shading.
Time: Approximately 6-7 hours

Yeah, they do tend to get a little over-the-top with her, don't they? You did a good job of toning it down while still retaining the look and feel of the character.

Thank you ever so much. I'm glad to know that there was definitely sexuality shown in the picture, but not to something that just went overboard, if you know what I mean. :handshake:

All I know about Witchblade originates from the television with Yancy Butler as the title character. An ancient weapon, a female wielder, somehow throughout the ages each wielder has had the same face, but different names. Others have worn yet not without consequences. She does look more like Beckinsale than Butler. The series itself only showes her arm turning into the weapon, the rest of her remains the same though there's a flickering back and forth of seeing a full armored individual. So once more impressive work with pencils.

Witchblade originated in 1996 when it was created my Marc Silvestri and Michael Turner (mainly) in the comics published my Top Cow under the prevision of Image comics. The Witchblade is actually the balance between light and dark, and has been around since almost forever. It is very old and very powerful. The Witchblade always chooses a female host, very rarely a male host, since it has the mind of what would be considered a man. It usually takes the form of a gauntlet and has both weaponry power and healing power. It can stretch out as a armor as well and create weapons (must be attached to the armor itself), guns, swords, gauntlets, etc. Sara usually has it has a bracelet and passes it off as a heirloom she inherited.

Thank you for your comment and I hope that my little bit of information let you know more about the story of Witchblade. ;)

It also doesn't take kindly to pretenders either. Well the blonde woman who appears to be a fashion designer becomes incredibly old rather quickly at least she looks that way outwardly. Genetic reincarnation also seems to play a large role as there's a kind of deja vu or back from the dead look in certain characters' eyes. As one of the past Witchblade hosts turns out to be a grandmother of a woman that Sara questions in a case in one episode.

She also sees the apparent ghost of her dead partner after he's been killed.

Nottingham also seems to believe Sara should retain the Witchblade even after a pretender wears it so easily.

Nottingham's employer, also a reject Witchblade wielder bears the mark of rejection or whatever the double circles in his flesh mean.

In the series, I have never seen it turn into anything other than an armored glove with the blade which grows to any length.

So thanks for the information.
