The Female of the Species... by nachtwulf The Female of the Species... by nachtwulf
You only ever see the MALE gnolls in WoW. Given that hyenas are matriarchal...just... where are the girls? What are THEY like?! ...Scary, that's what!

Female gnoll 'bandit queen' originally done for the WoW art contest. Unfortunately, I missed the deadline, oh well.

I like this a lot. Your art is very competent, and I like the brown/sepia colouring this linework has. I'm also a big fan of hyenas, and I like WoW. Gotta fave this!

Every time someone claims that D&D gnolls are patriarchal, this tends to be my response:
:ohmygod:
Needless to say, I've suggested on several game boards that they should be matriarchal. It's been met with everything from "Of course!" to "But they're not really hyenas..."

In my "realm" (I don't have anyone nearby to play D&D, but I have a bunch of ideas worked out in my mind) this sword-toting bitch would undeniably be the matriarch of her clan - and likely have to regularly fend off ambitious younger females seeking to claim then throne.

Men, ruling gnoll clans? Yeah right. Gnoll women are fiercer, tougher, and have bigger dicks than gnoll men - literally. Men are just good for breeding and grunt work... and even with the gruntwork, they'll pick slaves to do it before males.

:bulletblue:Well, you know even biologist have trouble telling a male hyena from a female one because the females get more testosterone. Maybe it was half and half and just hard to tell? o.o'...:bulletblue:

Maybe it's just me... but shouldn't the hips be a little bigger? I mean to keep that femenine quality? or did you leave it so on purpose?

It's supposed to be like that, really. Gnolls are extremely top-heavy in WoW, with exaggeratedly small hips. Besides, if I made them bigger, she'd look like an orc. XD

Gnolls! I've loved gnolls since I found out about them and played Frozen Throne. I always wanted a pet gnoll.

Hey, with a 'winning smile' like that, no wonder you don't want to meet her in a dark alley some where...or even the open plains!

Nod a WOW person, or a big gnoll fan - too many D&D characters got their asses kicked by them. This - this is scary. You definitely have a good grip on how deadly females can be. And psychotic.

I like that face a lot. Haha, I read an article once about how male and female hyenas have similar genital areas and scientists find it hard to differenciate between the genders.
