SS Contest - Thomas Hawke by CheekyFox SS Contest - Thomas Hawke by CheekyFox
Sometimes, we see things out of the corners of our eyes that merit a double-take. Usually, they end up being normal objects in odd configurations, things that are totally mundane and have little to no effect on anything.

Sometimes, though, what we dismiss as mere fancy is actually a carefully guarded reality.

Thomas Hawke has no connections, no permanent home, and no records. To the world we know, he doesn't exist. He has been living on the fringe of humanity for two thousand years, hunting the nightmares that plague our sleep: Witches.

Witches could be anywhere, disguised as anything. They are immensely powerful, possessing the power to alter oceans, change time, and bend space to their will. Hawke is the only reason they haven't taken the earth.

These endless years have been a torment to him, but he cannot die until the last Witches are gone, being half-Demon. The Demons, a race who could sense the Witches and destroy them, were numerous in the dawn of the world, but were sent into another dimension by a powerful Witch long ago. Thus, he is alone.

Nobody knows his half-Demon heritage. He only appears as a Demon to the Witches he hunts; to the rest of the world, his horns and red skin are only detectable through peripheral vision. Animals can sense it: some, primarily cats, enjoy his company.

He will continue to protect us until the end of either the world or the Witches, whichever comes first.

"The world-weary, introverted half-Demon witch hunter. His wardrobe is mysterious. He appears human - but those who interact with him keep getting the impression that he isn't human."

This is some of my best work. I still can't believe how it came out. =) For those of you who don't know, SS stands for Seventh Sanctum [link] which is an awesome site full of creative tips and helps for all kinds of writing and art. This is my entry for the most recent Seventh Sanctum contest. Sketched on paper and colored/shaded/everything else in GIMP.

Didn't win, but had lots of fun. I really enjoyed all the other entries, too, and the winners definitely deserved their rewards. Besides, there's always next time, right? =)

While I'm messing around with SAI and TABLET, might as well drag up old stuff and fix it, right?

Silly old me.

That's all right. Some stories come to you out of no-where. This one was one of the better outta-no-where stories.

Freaking yes! I love this! I love the tired, angry-...ness that you convey. The fire's beautiful.

And his eyes are shiny.

Thanks. XD The shiny eye thing was accidental, but I liked it too.
