Fanart: Mord'Sith Gwen Wallpaper (Merlin)

When I ran across the picture of Charisma Carpenter (of BtVS and Angel) as a Mord'Sith, I thought, "You know, I can totally see Cordelia as a Mord'Sith, so that's not a huge stretch." Which made me start thinking of characters you might not expect to be Mord'Sith, like Gwen. Then I thought, "But maybe Gwen would be a kickass Mord'Sith." And then I imagined Merlin or Arthur meeting Mord'Sith Gwen. After that, this wallpaper had to be made.

Click on the Image to enlarge.

For those who haven't watched Legend of the Seeker, the Mord'Sith are a group of highly trained warrior women who totally kick all kinds of ass. And fighting a Mord'Sith is never a good idea. One Mord'Sith could probably handle a half dozen of Camelot's knights all by herself. And you can check out my favorite Mord'Sith in action HERE.

I actually haven't done any fanart (besides gifs and such) in a really, really long time. But, once I had this idea, I couldn't let go.

Anyway, you can get the wallpaper in three sizes. Just right click and "Save As."




And, for those interested, here are the pics I started with.


I'd love to know what folks think. For example, is it too red? What about the background text. Too much?

I want to marry you for this. :D It's awesome and I can go celebrate the new year now! And it makes me want to see Gwen with a sword in S4. We should send this to the JJ's right away.

I'd love to see it in other colors.

I'm one of those people who doesn't mind Gwen not doing much of the way of fighting. *Ducks the flying tomatoes.* But I'd be all for it if it actually happened.

And I'm toying with doing another version of this WP. I flashed on an idea while trying and failing to get to sleep in the wee hours, so I'll probably be posting something soon.

That's awesome! And you're in luck, netgirl_2yk already wrote a Merlin/Legend of the Seeker crossover with Morgana as a Mord Sith. =D I'm in a bit of a hurry so I can't hunt it down for you but just check her fic masterpost!

Whoops. netgirl_y2k is what I meant.

I can actually see Morgana as a Mord'Sith. And thanks for the rec. I'll definitely check it out. :)

So can I! Only it's actually Gwen who's Mord Sith, Morgana is a Confessor. >_> Sorry, didn't notice the mistake earlier.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your fierce warrior Gwen. Awesome job!!

She already has the "fierce" part going for her. All she needs is some training...

Amazingly done!

WOW *stutters*...WOW!

AWESOME. I could so see her like this and warrior Gwen would rock standing by her man in battle. As someone suggested it would be great to see Gwen with a sword in hand(as she was once in S1).

Wonderful work...well done!
