The Necromancer by AshleyCope The Necromancer by AshleyCope
Behold the mighty Etalarche, Lord of all that is Diabolical, Questionable, and Icky!

Or, behold Bastion of Winalils, a short-tempered eunuch with a penchant for raising zombies and battling demons. He is a roleplaying character of mine and I luff him.

Given his background, is he compensating with those creatures he's summoned?

not all necromancers are evil. some of us merely enjoy giving life to the lifeless, and stealing strength from the strong. i'm of an equalizer attitude, i'm not a diabolic caster.

after catching your fanart of Vlad Taltos a moment ago, I was hoping this was the Necromancer found at Castle Black. =P
Any chance you plan to do more Jhereg/Brust fanart?

Nice job on this, btw, though. :)

I had only read the first two, and not even all of Yendi, but I recently picked it back up again and I'm almost done with Taltos already, so I'm all about Vlad and the gang. So I was hopeful. =P

Another excellnt job on the details, escpecially the form of the hand, the wavering hair, and the scaled, slimey backs of the serpents.
Do you ever take screenshots of your work in progress? I would love to see those.
Also, what part of Florida are you in? I have good friends from school all over, from Naples to Tallahassee. Let me know!

Eee, the cuts on his arm kinda gross me out! In a good way! The blood eels are rather discurbing too. I find myself being reminded of that horrible creature in Willow at the castle though its been years since I saw it so I don't remember that well what they looked like.

He willingly and ritualistically sacrificed his manhood to achieve the power and equanimity of a master necromancer. *wriggles fingers* Everything comes with a price >;)

Fantastic use of colors (such a rich, variance and compatible palette of choice!); and I really enjoy how the little goblin tears at your player lord's skin. The eel-like demons are so convincing as well!
