Soul Eater. by drakhenliche Soul Eater. by drakhenliche
So, here's the final version. I like the marker one, but I couldn't resist having a go in Photoshop too.
______________________

The dhar'griul, or soul-eaters as they are known in Common Tongue, are a race of daemon found throughout the Lower Planes that prey upon the immortal essence of any lesser being they can get their claws into, ideally sweetened by their victim's terror. They are aligned to the god of greed and famine. Their hunger is never sated and whilst they enjoy their metaphysical meals, their very favourite flavour is mortal flesh and blood, a rare commodity in the regions they inhabit. As such, if a magic user or dark cleric summons one to the mortal plane, they come quickly and willingly but once here they are all but impossible to control and, if they break free of the summoning spell's control, they will go on the rampage. They're sneaky devils though and, even once they find a weakness in their summoner's supposed control, they will feign compliance, choosing only the most opportune moment to strike...

He reminds me of a cross between the Manticore and the Red Bull from The Last Unicorn. The way you coloured this is mind-blowing. I love it. Also, really wicked line art.

Looks actually like a Shie Shaw from China. Was that your inspiration or something else?

A shie shaw? I'll have to google that now :D I had vague images in my head of asian carvings, though no specific ones.

Evil to the core... lovely :-) And you'd kinda deserve everything you got if you wanted to summon one, knowing what they are like.

Thank you! It was quicker to colour than I'd expected.. maybe the practice of doing it in markers already helped.
