Dresden Files characters 2 by wildcard24 Dresden Files characters 2 by wildcard24
2nd set of the Dresden Files characters fanart I'm doing, featuring some of Dresden's 'frenemies'; figures who Dresden would normally be opposed against, yet somehow finds himself allied with, or working together with begrudgingly more often than not against common, bigger and nastier threats. Left to right: Mafia boss 'Gentleman' John Marcone, femme fatale vampire seductress Lara Raith, elder Sidhe sorceress and Harry's faerie godmother the Leanansidhe, and Lasciel the Fallen Angel. My Marcone is modeled after Ray Wise, the actor who played the Devil in the short-lived series Reaper. First time I read the character's description he immediately popped up in mind. Next up, some of Harry's allies!

Update: Minor edits and background graphics added.

For some reason I always pictured John Marcone as African American

I think it's cool how Butcher made these all "anti-heroes" and not straight up villains. Love the lara look, but I don't think she's that pale (unless she is channeling). Lea looks like I imagine her: a bit crazy, but not totally.

I think the shadow is a bit off, right underneath Marcone.

Great work. Marcone has real mafia boss look.
You captured lara perfectly, hot and badass.
Lasciel looks inviting yet you see infernality in her.
Lea is just Lea.

All my YES for your portrayal of the Leanansidhe (Lea). Now THAT'S a Fairy Godmother.

Awesome, as always!!!! What I would like to see you try your hand at is some of his full tilt enemies! Maybe a set of Red Court: Bianca Saint Claire, Paolo Ortega, Ariana Ortega, and the Red King (also, coincidentally a family tree). Oooooooooo!!!! Or the Denarians!!!! Nicodemus, Deirdra, Tessa, and Cassius! Or maybe the Kemmlerites!

These are great. I'd love to see your take on some of the Big Bads. Cowl, Nicodemus, Mavra, Bianca, etc...

I'd always imagined Lea looking more like the way you drew Mab...ah well, only Jim Butcher knows for sure.

No powers, pure mortal, not even uses any magical equipment. But against these immensly dangerous Femme Fatales, them on one side and him on the other, John "Gentleman" Marcone balances the scale.

Yeah, they should just kill off Dresden and make him the star of the series and rename it "The Marcone Journals" =))

That'd be kinda hard. They tried killing him recently, and he just came back even stronger. Damn that Dresden, very hard to kill. And very funny and awesome.

I love Lash. I also love Lara's Kimono battle outfit. I can totally see the two of them pulling a Legolas and Gimli at Helm's Deep type contest.

Another excellent set! I have to peg Lea as the best of this bunch--totally gorgeous and totally creepy, and including the hellhound is a nice touch. Lash is great too; she looks so "pure" and harmless, which is of course exactly how she always intends to come across. (An illustration of her "Shiela" persona from Dead Beat would be awesome!)

Lea looks awesome.

I think's its amusing that Marcone gets grouped with all these super beautiful, supernatural and very dangerous ladies. And the way he's adjusting his collar is like "I'm cool. It totally got this. I'll fit right in."

Thanks! And yeah, that is totally something Marcone would do=). When I started this, I had to figure out how to group the characters for each set and this is where I thought he'd fit best for what I had in mind. But yeah, he can totally hang with those ladies, 'cos he's that badass.
