Northern Demons by NyxenAvenger Northern Demons by NyxenAvenger
"If it ain't worth anythin', then it's worth smashin'!"- A Northern Demon saying

Northern Demons were originally bred as elite soldiers and hunters by a mysterious overlord for use in the War Between Humans and Demons, after the war they fled towards the northern mountains in defiance of their master, but soon enough they turned on each other and fought amongst themselves for domination and control. The remaining survivors began to form several tribes dotting the North where they and their descendents have remained there to this day.

Northern Demons are generally more agressive and ill-tempered than other demons, they have no knowledge of magic and little of the forge; only a handful can actually make something useful. As such they have resorted to scavenging armour, weapons and the like from pillaged caravans unlucky to have taken the northern route. But they do excel at hunting and battling, as they were bred for such things by their master. Many bear ugly scars and crude prosthetics, and prefer to show them off as a sign of strength.

The only way you call tell if a demon is a Northern one is if you look into his/her eyes, for they carry the darkness of their master.

Trying to build up the world of Outsiders, I have only one or two locations sketched down and I'm planning to ink a couple in the future.

I really wanted to create these multiple variations of demons that would populate this post apocalyptic world, this is one of them. I wanted to make them seem as wild as possible but also give them a sense of culture, hence the fur cloaks and the integration of skulls and bones into their armour to show that they are keen to show off their trophies, and that it gives them some form of status in their society.

Anyways, hope you enjoy this pic! :)

Yeah I suppose you are right but then again I'm still chuffed at how it turned out in the end.

Hahaha thanks!

Many thanks! :)

Though the great war may be over, the darkness of both demon and man still lingers on in the shadows. When I get around to doing the other factions I'll elaborate upon this point.
