the scythian by coifishu the scythian by coifishu
My interpretation of what the protagonist from the mobile game, Swords & Sworcery may look like.
Alongside her are two space babies and one of her guides.

I strongly recommend you all go out and play it if you have the iTouch/Phone/Pad.


EDIT: Wow, thank you for the feedback, everyone! I'm grateful for the comments! :dance: I finished the game just now, and the ending was beautiful.

May I ask what materials you used to make this?

I really, really love this. The Scythian has quite a personality about her, and I feel you captured it magnificently.

I like your style as always : ). I can not play this game but seen like that she looks like a badass lowl.

I love swords and sworcery so much! What I loved the most about it was how they used sound to set the mood for the game. For example when you first see that wolf-monster thing and that one song starts I thought to myself: "something very, very bad will happen very, very soon :(" I really like how you interpreted her, she looks really badass here!

We saw a painting of a cool chick on the internet. We were amazed by the way it kept the shape of the real thing, but it was painted in a really cool style.
RyuKisargi Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2012
This was really cool.

But the ending made me cry. ;-;

You have such a lovely style! The colors are just amazing, and all the little glints of light and linework details...oof, it has a lovely feeling <3.

I am currently playing this game right now and I am very impressed by it!

I think you caught the character just well (and daaaw the dog)!

Oh wow everything about this piece is just gorgeous!! :love:
Artsy-Fox Featured By Owner May 18, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This wins! Epic fave!
I really wish I could say something intelligent about it, but everyone beat me to it.
Very super cool, though. Love how she looks both in pixels and in watercolor.
Did you know that Superbrothers reposted this on their facaebook page? I'll bet you did. Silly me.

Beautiful piece. I've been obsessed with the art and music in Sword & Sorcery since it was announced; sadly I have no device to experience the actual gameplay (at least I was able to buy the soundtrack...).

GREAT STUFF, keep it up!

Love this so much

nice style you got there
Nemodemos Featured By Owner May 1, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Nice work! I just did a rendition myself and wondered if anybody else had done one. So I looked around here and found yours! It's great, and makes me realize mine has no strap to hold the Megatome onto her back [link] I'll just say it's held by the life-sucking power of Sworcery.
Vasilisa-Uzhasnaja Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I agree with what someone said, it's always a great joy to see simple pixels made into a complex character design. I love doing the same thing with pixely protagonists from the old SNES JRPGs of yore :P There's so much room for imagination when all you're given to work with is just a few tiny blocks of color. And it really shows how fleshed out and well-designed the character is themselves for you to have such a clear picture of what they look like.
Anyway, this rocks. Sword&Sworcery is the most incredible game, and worthy of a fanart such as this. I friggin love the watercolor work :love: And Dogfella :heart: so cute. I'm only a little before the halfway mark of the game...I just can't play it through all the way so fast, I'm scared it'll end too soon! It's a masterpiece. I was afraid that there WASN'T any fanart of it, because whenever I look at the App Store reviews for it, it's a bunch of philistines whining that they wasted $2 that they would've spent on some regurgitated bird-themed crap anyway. So yeah, this beautiful interpretation of yours made my day :love:
vonkoz Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Gorgeous work! I love how you interpreted her design! Makes me want to model it out in 3d!
Whothehellisthat Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011
wow! really nice. I'm lovin' the game, and it's cool to see a more detailed take on the main character. Are you planning on doing the others? Suitman in particular?
Retronator Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011  Professional General Artist
Awesome! Great feeling, captures a lot of the game's mood.

She looks amazing and Dogfella is so adorable. This game is fantastic and so far this is the best fanart I've seen. :)

This is great. Awesome interpretation! I imagined him a little bit more 'tough' but I completely love yours.
