Nekromantia by CanisAlbus Nekromantia by CanisAlbus
Lauren O'Connell - House of the Rising Sun

Mordred, after his friends abandoned him, or after he betrayed them to save his own skin, depending on your point of view. Fueled by hatred and slowly eaten alive by his black magic, his once so well-meaning mind becomes one with the darkness.

Ballpoint pen and Gimp.

I'm moving back to my student apartment tomorrow so life has been a bit hectic lately, sorry about delays and inconveniences. Actually, I should be packing at the moment. Hnngh.

woah, I love the way you doing pencil strokes. That really need a good skill. I really do you in some degree envy (and I know it's bad), because I'm very bad in pencil strokes. That's butthurt. I think, you really need to be proud of yourself (whatever, that this is one of the most stupid reasons to be proud of myself in the world).

Dat shading! Also I love characters with two ( or more ) point perspectives in their back stories where it really just depends on whose view you are reading from. Make it so much more interesting!

Ooh, that's interesting that he was once well-meaning, I've never considered Mordred (your character or the Arthurian one) being a good guy o: Sounds like he's poisoning himself.  
Beautiful drawing, too, those ribs, wow! I'm a sucker for dark characters with pale eyes c:

Crosshatching is actually a really nice way to shade things, it just takes a heck a lot of time and patience, at least from me :V
Thanks!

It is a wonderful song, especially with the slow, kind or regal tempo and haunting atmosphere of this cover version, I think.
Thanks a lot!
