Scorn by imDRUNKonTEA Scorn by imDRUNKonTEA
Fanart of Tanis Nieves, aka Scorn, from the rebooted Carnage series. Inspired by Clayton Crain's amazing art style.

Backstory on the character: Tanis was a shrink who was fitted with a symbiote-based prosthetic arm. In a battle between Carnage/Shriek and the Avengers, Tanis accepted the bond between her and the symbiote in her arm, thus becoming the tech-manipulating Scorn.

The character is (c) Marvel

Glad you do! Sadly I stopped following her character...not sure if she appeared in any more comics afterward.

She came back on as an agent in Carnage USA. When Carnage took over a small country town and compromised the Avengers the U.S. government was forced to recruit symbiotic combatants including Agent Venom, Venom's mentally challenged spawns attached to black ops soldiers and of course your favorite Scorn. She played a significant role in that series.

Oh yeah, I did read that one. Would love to see her kick more ass :) esp since she's still a bit of a reluctant hero, which is my favorite type.

Quite a cute cyber-symbiote. The only problem with Scorn is that she tends to be a Mary-Sue in the Carnage series.

How is she a Mary Sue?

She tends to be a total whiner and certainly the early stories gave her a lotta focus, than say, Carnage.

She was a pacifist forced into a situation that required violence, and she ultimately caved. A true Mary Sue would have remained completely unchanged throughout the story and awakened Cletus' moral compass, causing him to repent everything he's done, surrender his symbiote to the authorities, and devote himself to world peace.

I love Scorn. And Toxin. Symbiote heroes are the best !!!!

Flash Tompson as Venom is not bad... I like how he use the Symbiote ability to walk again... but don't like that the character is a helpless alchoolic.

Yeah I agree, Flash is cool but it's such a departure between his military side and his personal, alcoholic side...it seems too jarring for me =/

She has the carnage symbiote, most of it, so the cia has it. We'll see her again, sooner than we think. And evil!

Lovin' me that Scorn. For a character with a lot of potential, she doesn't get a lot of face time.

I hope she doesn't go the way of Pat Mulligan. Blackheart and Brock better stay away from her, she's the last female symbiote (excluding Payback)!

This is excellent, really nice job on the colours; I agree with the comment about her left foot being slightly disproportionate, but I like the clawed toes look; maybe it's just me, but yeah it looks good IMO. I can't be critical of too much, because it's a very nice image and an original pose, whilst Tanis' face is very well rendered and the symbiote looks detailed without being too flashy. :thumbsup:

It's the official story, as detailed in Carnage #1-5 and Carnage USA - the art is by Clayton Crain, this amazing guy:

:) definitely worth a read, if only for the art.

Very cool job. Her left leg could use some work. Looks really "flat." Just doesn't show any depth like the rest. I suggest changing the size of the foot. Its suppose to be closer to the viewer but its smaller than the other foot which is further away. It throws everything off on that whole size. Thats really the main thing. My other issue is just my taste but I really don't like the toes. I know I've seen it like that in other art but I just really don't like those toes like that. I prefer the boot look like Venom and Spider-man have. Or a combination of the two. Like a clawed boot or with the big toe being the only separated digit without it being exaggerated like it is here. In any case, good job. What program did you use?

Hey, thanks for the critique! I agree, I had trouble portraying depth on her left leg. Enlarging the foot kind of worked, but then the proportion of her foot was way too big for the rest of her body (even with foreshortening) leading me to believe that it's either a fundamental problem with how I drew the leg, or it has to do with the lighting...still trying to figure it out haha.

As for the toes, I always found it silly that an organic suit that was essentially a second skin to the host would form a clunky, inorganic boot at the foot - it just seems out of place to me. Plus I like the idea from Crain's work and from the new Venom series that the symbiote gets progressively more animalistic/feral (claws, toes, tendrils) as it gets angrier or the host loses control. You're free to have your own opinion of course :)
