She-devil (and the sword)

"Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, is a fictional character, a low fantasy sword and sorcery heroine created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith. She first appeared in Conan the Barbarian #23 (Marvel Comics). Red Sonja has become the archetypical example of the fantasy figure of a fierce and stunningly beautiful female barbarian who typically wears armor resembling a bikini or lingerie..."
An old commission drawn for a fanzine on the character. No metal-bikini this time.

Mistress Ouish

"At the center of this foggy phosphorescence, a tall woman reclined upon polar furs, the cushions strewn about her feet embossed with intricate frost patterns. The glimmering blur of her surroundings erased the wrinkles from her skin and made her ageless, but when she spoke her voice was old. Her name was Ouish, and she was the mistress and proprietor of the House Without Clocks".
Preliminary study of the character for Alan Moore's Hypothetical Lizard, (vaguely inspired by Viveca Lindfors, I must admit).

Little wings

"Darkoth (a.k.a. Darkoth the Death Demon) is a fictional character, supervillain appearing in the Marvel Comics universe. His first appearance was in Fantastic Four series 1 #142, (January 1974), and he was created by Gerry Conway and Rich Buckler."
I posted some time ago an illustration I did about the character for the Marvel Trading Cards game. This pin-up was drew for a fan, who asked for it. And I must admit that I still love the little wings on his hoofs (I mean: Darkoth's hoofs, not the fan's!)
