It's another Vigil Villain! Yay! For those of you with very long memories, a few years back I ran a competition to design a villain for my character Vigil, and in a moment of drunken weakness I promised to draw them all! Well, it's been a few years now but I'm going to finish them if it kills me!
This sinister looking character is Lrangthos, created by - who pshed the boundaries of the competition a bit by submitting a story rather than a drawing of his character - which probably explains why I left him to nearly last! Lrangthos is a parasitic alien criminal encased in a suit of armour and a spooky cloak. His presence causes electrical storms and he drains people's life forces to stay alive - read the story here - it's well worth a look!
Moving onto the character though, I really like the design of this one. It's mostly a simple one, bearing a ragged cloak, but the light like head within the darkness of the cloak really brings a lot of character to the design. He's very creepy and imposing with his tall height, and his ability sounds like a dangerous one. I'm very impressed you were able to illustrate such a character and make it look so cool given you had only words to work with, but I guess credit should also go to ridleysghost for providing a good enough description of the character for you to draw from. Very nice image and certainly one of my fav's so far. I think it just falls behind a little bit however to some of the awesome designs and enemies already competing. It's still a superb looking character however and certainly a fantastic image
A very nice drawing, Kost! You know how to tell stories in a single image.
The design kinda reminds me of a Nasghul.
Yeah - I can see what you mean - a sort of creepy sci-fi Nazgul! Thanks for the kind words and the BC! Much appreciated!
And yes! Three to go! (Two more very late additions which I never promised to draw too... but even with them it's just five left! Amazing!)
Thanks a lot - and for the too! You can see how far I've got in this journal - three left! (Actually, there are another two that were drawn after the competition finished, which I might draw too - but three officially! I aim to be done by 2014!

But yeah, you did some excellent work with this, much appreciated my good sir! You really captured the character quite well! 8D
