Amazing picture, instafav'd.

I love the detail of the Lich's face, his chainmail, even his sword (is it a rapier or something?), the fact this took just a mere two weeks is freaking legendary.

The whole picture just oozes evil. Well done.

Oozes with evil!
Ohh..I like that!

Thanks for a great compliment!

The sword hilt is actually based on several different french ceremonial swords kinda hodge-podged together.

I also like the idea of undeath or the undead; something that shouldnt be alive somehow is compelled to act - so creepy.
Unfortunately the undead are pretty much used as props in media these days, usually in the form of a mindless adversary, when the potential for greater horror just stays unrealized.
One of the best undead villains ive seen in film is "Nix" from "Lord of Illusion" - he really doesnt appear til the end of the movie but the character ends up having so much presence and being so terrifying when you realize he's undead.

Thanks dimpusburger, lol thats a really fun name to say by the way.

It took me a little under 2 weeks.
Oddly the detail fell into place quickly for some reason.
This lich was really fun to do - I had to pry myself away from him.

Im really happy you like it and took the time to say so!

Thanks for showing this detailed part of the piece. I love all the miniscual details. The lighting and the pose is brilliant!

Great job bud!

All work is done in photoshop from sketch to finish.

It took me less than 2 weeks - this one really seemed to draw itself in a weird way. That hasnt happened to me in a very long time.
Usually theres something in a work that ties me up and that I have to fight with but not this one.

Thanks TA, I appreciate ya.
