Mortimer, The Devil's Advocate
If the Devil had a Lawyer, Mortimer would be it.
Closely related to Succubae, Mortimer is an asexual minor deamon who’s will is that of it’s Overlord. Sent to parlay delicate matters of Spiritual Ownership, Soul Use, Spiritual Development and Management, Theological Planning and Soul Collection, Mortimer is a cunning negotiator and loves what he does because he is very, very good at it. And thinks it's fun watching people squirm.
But what Mortimer would love the most is a glass of ice water .

All of you continue to humble me. Fantastic work, again.
Wow, so many great ones, I'm not even going to try to name them all. I do have once comment that applies to a lot of the entries though. A lot of these look like pretty major demons to me while the description was minor demon. But that certainly didn't stop me from enjoying the all the amazing work.
I gave my vote to Hanuka. I just loved that character as soon as I saw it. There's something about it that seems to me like it just stepped right out of a story.
Ah man, such a hard choice. Great job everyone. There are some truely amazing works here!
everyones work turned out pretty darn cool!

overwrite your file, dude
Dude. Am I reading the poll results correctly? Did Mr. Blonde vote for himself? Pray tell....this cannot be so.
You have a broken [img] tag there oreg. it need a slash! (no pun intended)
My vote goes to mentler. He got it, and i dont even know what it is, but he got it. (Hey mentler, did you use to do childrens book illustrations? or other book illustrations? There's something about your drawings that takes me waay back into my childhood, but i CANT for the life of me remember what it is. Its this strange familiarity... )
yeah he did... maybe it was a mistake?Originally Posted by redehlert
My vote goes to Posh. Sure it's kinda Wonka'd, but the joy expressed in Morti comes across in the whimsy of the illustration. Also love the monochromatic approach.
Blue, Lukavi, Helzon, Sinix, Shadow, Poise, Magicgoo and Gloklund get thumbs up too!
Great job all!
save the final with the same name as the one oregano posted and upload to the same directoryOriginally Posted by redehlert
Red, I fixed your image.
I also nullified Mr. Blonde's vote. We're going to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that the vote for himself was cast by mistake.
Man, this was such a great topic! As usual, everyone brought out their best, but XGabo got my vote. Very cool!
Great job to everyone!!

Thanks for the assist Shayne!
alot of nice work here...
being as how a Succubae is a demon sent to have sex with men while they sleep, and Mortimer is closelt related to one, i think he should be humanoid (just my opinion) here are my comments on some or the more humanoid ones that stood out to me.
Mr. Blonde - has a great atmosphere and mood. he looks scary (though the pentagram should be flipped... the star pointing up is the good version, pointing down evil - a minor thing) should there be a handle for the giant pen nib?
R_M - captured the asexual feel nicely. i'd like to see more detail, especially around the face.
Bluefooted - he does look dandy-ish. friendly even. nice colours and textures
xgabo - the face looks a little masculin to me, but while mortimers asexual, he was refered to as he. The snake, centipede and raven really add alot to it.
poshspice - also very nice, but where xgabo's had a manly face, this one is very feminine
Helzon - He really looks like a big, fat, demon lawyer!
Glokund - the expression on his face is great. the skull/spirit in the jar is also a nice touch. I would have liked to see more of mortimer
So in the end, for me it was Helzon and xgabo. I gave it to xgabo because the creatures crawling all over mortimer add a certian creepiness
Had to vote for Poshspice, awesome work and great concept, fit the description very nicely.
xgabo gets my vote this round. nice work all around people!
a second close is misledtomisery, but i would have voted for that if the topic were "the devil" and not "the devil's advocate".
Hey dog. . . . did you see the size of that chicken?!
I fixed the url tag of Jska, as SLash mentioned, there was a "/" missing...strange that Slash was the one noticing it
And i voted for R_M...runner-up is Gloklund...
So far I think this has been the most difficult to vote on. The range of interpretations are incredible, and some of the thought behind them is stunning! I'm voting for Redhelert, because I love the sense of whimsy that seems to be in Mortimer, and the description hinted at that. I would perhaps like to have seen more play made of the 'asexual' part of the description, but I guess Mortimer can look how he wants!
Lukavi - Yours scares me...
wow, so much good stuff! voted for Poshspice, thought he caputured the character. Really liked Shadoman's too, Xgabo, and Gloklund's.
whoever voted for me, thanks Happy I could give you some warm fuzzy feelings.
Lots of different takes on the theme!
I voted for Poise, because I really like the basic concept and can't help but think what if... he completed it.
that is the on epiece I would love to pick up and finish.
I really like the eyes of magicgoo's image, I think they capture mortimer nicely.
there are lots of runners up! but Xgabo sticks out because of the extremely strong graphic element of the snake. I think it is a shame it isn't more predominant and used as a theme for the entire piece. Right now it competes for attention with the scarf the crow the centipedethingy the bag ecc.
Great work everyone. Hurricane gets my vote.
This was fun and challenging ‡‡ lots of great entries ‡‡ some that stood out for me are Mr. Blonde's very strong and menacing ‡‡ Hurricanes ... The slimy flesh of this dude is very unappealing in an appalling way, good work Bjorn ‡‡ Sinix for major personal style points ‡‡ Shadoman I am diggin' yours as well <> really like the jaws of hell thing on the entrance ‡‡ R.M. great attitude of the pose and the fine print on the contract is great ‡‡ this is only some that caught my eye ‡‡‡‡‡ everyone should be commended here!!!!

My vote went to Xgabo, strong character.
Props to Mr Blonde, Hurricane, R_M, bluefooted, posh, mentler, redhelert, helzon, shadoman, poise. And the rest
Poshspice. Superb work. You stuck on the subject, the succube (which is a life fluid drinker) which looks human at first glance, so they can get their prey. Good luck.
I voted for doven's, there's just something about that guy that I like. ;P Nice style, too, something a little different from the rest; it looks like it belongs as a storybook illustration.
All in all, though, amazing entries, there's something I like in all of them so it was a tough choice.
It's when you can't hear the bats, that's when the bats are coming.
zaknafain, hurricane, Mr.Blonde, R M, bluefooted, xgabo, sinix, Poshspice, redehlert, shadoman, Gloklund, and Trollboy
Choosing here is as painful as having roids removed through your nose.
I wish I could vote for everyone....but ultimately Posh gets mine....the line work is mindblowingly tight....the expression is spot on...and the whimsy factor is refreshing.
redehlert : What a luminous piece...really tying it all together in a great package. Keep em coming bro.
bwkeough : hey B, this one creeped me the frig out in a sort of Chitty-chitty-bang bang goes to hell sort of way...
lukavi : dude I love where this is going...and I would love to see it all finished up with that lukavi voodoo juju you got.
To everyone....you really threw your hearts and 'souls'..(bwahahaha)...into these and i've got nothing but great admiration and respect for you all. Here's to seeing what you come up with on the next topic
