Hi ! I'm from ProjectComment
First of all I have to say that your drawing is really beautiful, I saw it on the thumbnail, and it's even more great now that I see it bigger. I really love that kind of semi-realist style.

I like her features, she looks great. But I have to say that her hair looks a bit less natural than the rest, it doesn't give more complexity than per exemple her right hand (which is really good).
I like how you did the highlight in the green-yellow, really nice, but I was wondering if she was wearing some tights (hope we say it like that o.o) because her thigh is really shiny, and the laces things looks more like a tatoo for the righ thigh. The wand looks nice with the skull and all, but it isn't really defined, it doesn't stand too much from the background, it could have more impact if you use either more shadow, contrast or sculpting it more.
I feel like the belt-lace thing on her belly are a bit "hard" to understand the texture, is it more like belt with leather (because of the round metal) ? I thought it was this kind of material but you could maybe help it with doing a little bit more of shadow on her body, I feel like the overwall low body (from the stomach) is really shiny and smooth. Otherwise I really like how you did her top, it's really nice with good folds, she made me think of Valla from Diablo, it's so cool !
Now that I think of it, the laces-leather-belt thing on her righ hand looks a bit like a tatoo, it doesn't stand out from her skin, it's like it's a part of her skin you know ? Oh, that could be the problem I had with the belt on her stomach, it's a bit too even on her side.

I feel, but I can't really see it well, that her left hand have a tiny problem with her fingers. I feel like her index finger is too high and her thumb have the top part too little it seems. Well I think it's that, her hand is too high for a normal rotation, I tried and couldn't lift my hand that way, even though in your works it looks really badass and if you look it like that you don't really saw that (but since I search for things for you to improve I had to !).
Another thing I could say is how you blended the light on her hood, I feel like it could have been more smooth, we feel too much the stroke (I feel like I saw that quickly because it's the only part like that).

Well, I still have to say that I really enjoyed looking at your work, I'll favorite it for sure. It's such a great Oc with an interesting story (I read some previous comment ahha). I feel like all that I wrote were just really little things because when I look at your work, overwall and even in some special part, I still think that it's a really good drawing. You made me want to play some video game ahah ! I could be such a great design for a character :)

This is a really awesome piece. I love the colors and shading around the Necromancer. Most characters would usually have shades of grey or black, or anything just pale. However, the colors still give a nice, dark and even earthly vibe. The design is also pretty neat, differing from the usual skeletal look of how most people depict a Necromancer. If anything, I think the design crosses between perhaps maybe a witch doctor and a necromancer, that's just the vibe I get out of her. The lighting and shading are also very well done. Now, there are a few things that I kinda need to nitpick.

I'm gonna start with the hand with the magic. It seems just a little crooked, and the thumb is a bit small. I'd suggest putting the thumb a little lower, so we could see the rest of the hand.

Now, about the staff. The pole of the staff kinda looks a little too blurry. It's not bad, but when compared to the rest of the image, it looks more like a printed design or marking, rather than a physical object. A suggestion would be to make the outline a little sharper.

Next the skull on the staff. This is a really trivial thing, but it does kinda catch my attention. I actually have quite a bit to say about this part, but it may just end up confusing, so I'll just give the suggestion. I'd suggest making the jaw a little wider, or the end of the pole a bit more narrow, so it could look as if the staff were inside the skull. 

These are just nitpicks I wanted to point out. As I said earlier, the image itself is great. It has a great and dark atmosphere around it. The colors and shading are very well done. The expression is brooding and superb, making her really stand out as a unique character. This is overall a really well done redesign.

Thanks so much for this. I agree with the hand, the tip of the thumb is supposed to pointing at the veiwer and foreshortening, but thats not how it looks, so thanks for pointing that out for sure. I have to admit, that i didnt want to commit on the staff, so i just kinda half assed it, thanks for calling me out on that.

Just incase you or anyone else reading this may be interested: she was kidnapped and forced to be a necromancer. She refuses to reanimate or manipulate the corpses of intelligent creatures (humans, Elaisu, etc) only animals. Typically necrotic magic doesnt work so well on animals, but hers does for reasons yet to be explained, thus making her useful, otherwise the traditional necromancers would have killed her long ago in favor of another that would manipulate the dead flesh of people. The life of a necromancer is all she has known since she was a small girl, and feels she has no other option but to continue that path.

Out of curiosity, what exactly would be the definition of necrotic magic? Is she supposedly bringing them back from the dead?

No, manipulating the residual energy left behind in the bones and tissue.

I think the design is pretty well done. The shadows, lights and materials look nice and well elaborated and detailed enough.

She has sort of a druid feel to her, which differentiates her from most necromancers. Great job!

Agreed. She seems a little less likely to turn you into a walking corpse and more likely to help destroy other walking corpses.
