Baron Samedi Boogie by NibbleKat Baron Samedi Boogie by NibbleKat
Baron Samedi-- Baron Samedi stands at the crossroads, where the souls of dead humans pass on their way to Guinee. He is a sexual loa, frequently represented by phallic symbols and he noted for disruption, obscenity, debauchery, and having a particular fondness for tobacco and rum. Additionally, he is the loa of sex and resurrection, and in the latter capacity he is often called upon for healing by those near or approaching death, as it is only Baron who can accept an individual into the realm of the dead. He is considered a wise judge, and a powerful magician.

And he's going to be in my comic, Vox Angelus.

...if I ever finish it. HAR.

The paper was too big for my scanner, so the left of it got cut off a tiny bit, which makes it look uneven... just imagine a little strip of white there, with his hat not being chopped off, okay? Okay!! WOOHOO.

And this is ink, with watered down acrylics!

Man... He reminds me of a book I read as a kid... The Halloween Tree? That might be what it's called, but he reminds me of the antagonist of the story, how I pictured him at least. Enough with the nostalgia though, I love it.

I had to google it, but yes! He reminds me of how I pictured the guy who told them that they had to give up a year of their lives to save Pipkin. (Was that the kids name?) I haven't read it in years, but it made me think of it right away. I looked through your gallery, and I really like your art! Don't ever stop, angels will cry.

I haven't read that one in years, either. I wouldn't doubt it if Bradbury didn't base that character on Samedi or someone similar... I do lovvveee Bradbury!

And thank you so much again for the compliment. ^_^

I forgot to leave a comment when I faved this earlier. I absolutely love the way you captured him. The details in the smoke, the crossroads in the distance, even the Ace of Spades in his hat. Perfection!!
