The Necromancer by FrerinHagsolb The Necromancer by FrerinHagsolb
Do you know this feeling? You have an idea and want to realize that as soon as you can. This is one of these works.
Actually, I combined three ideas I had in the painting: A creature/strange figure, a nightmare and a guy with lots of ghosts were these from the beginning. The ghosts became flames/tentacles, 'cause they looked kinda cute with there small eyes. The tentacles were also inspired by Kvelertak's song (the video is just awesome!) 'Svartmesse': www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZrTwO… . The theme 'nightmare' was represented with some skulls. For these I used a 3D app, to find the angles I want. The eye on the head was a bit an allusion to Sauron.
I used ink pens and ink.

Wow killer work, those tentacle flames are awesome and the silhouette of this piece alone would be badass, let alone all those gorgeous details you've packed in there!

Guter Bildaufbau. Ein echter Blickfang.
Hattest du also ein 3D-Modell für die Schädel?

Vielen lieben Dank! Ja, ich habe allerdings eine App und keinen echten Schädel verwendet, mit welcher ich den Schädel drehen konnte wie ich wollte. Das war recht hilfreich.

truly incredible...
I'm getting the impression that this could be part of a very sinister children's tale, sort of in the vein of the original grimm tales (but with a lotr inspired twist ;)). The composition is what catched my eye immediatly, with the symmetrical aspect and the high complexity of the different characters and details. Even the skulls made me stop for a second to admire them, this is one of my favorite works I've seen from you so far!


and just because I love bothering ppl, have you ever though of doing some short stories in comic form? like a page or two, maybe you actually draw comics and I'm just rambling but your style would make for such a unique story, it would be so exciting to see!

Whoa, many thanks for your kind words! :tighthug: I'm also really proud of this one, because it was such an idea I felt to realize as soon as I could, and while drawing everything seemed to get to the right place for me. XD

I have to say that I would love to create a comic in this style -AAAaaah, I'd just love to be a graphic novel/comic artist later. I have so many stories and so many styles I would love to try.
But at the moment time for that is absolutely missing. Tantrum

I never thought you could make The Lord of the Rings terrifying, but somehow you've accomplished it. I haven't read the books so my knowledge might be a bit off. I assume the figures in the drawing are the Necromancer and Sauron, before he turned evil. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

This is very impressive work here; the strokes, the designs. All of it really blends together to create a very chilling scene. The use of ink certainly matches the tone. The skulls are also creepily drawn. The best part of all is the shadows; the way they wrap around the man's legs, how they weave. It reminds me of how they drew the shadows for Hades in Disney's Hercules.
The orb with skull is a really nice touch, especially with the unnatural hands hovering over it.

My only issue is the Necromancer's face. It's still creepy, but it feels as though it could be even creepier. Perhaps the face could use a little more detail, maybe make it a little less oval. His vacant expression is good, though.

Flaw aside, this piece is a lovely, nightmarish creation; in the best ways possible. I suggest practicing more on the inking as well the sketch work.
Overall, fantastic work.

Oh, it's too complex telling Sauron's whole story here...he turned evil very early but never was a 'necromancer' in this context. Why I brought his symbol in/alluded to him was because of the powerful rings he created for the free folks, especially the 9 men. As you might know, he still got power over them after they were actually already dead, as Nazgûls/Ringwraiths...I hope it makes sense to you! :D

Thank you very much for your extensive comment, I really appreciate it! And thanks for pointing at his face, although I wanted it mask-like/dead itself, I agree it could be creepier (maybe also by deforming it more?)!
Have a nice day!

The creature's tentacles and large, but slender stature look similar to Aku from Samurai Jack. Great art, though.

Sooo gut!! Tolles Konzept, die Figur im Hintergrund ist mal richtig gruselig, musste irgendwie an Hellblade denken. Hat was Naturgeistartiges, Schamanistisches, finde ich. Und danke für den Videotipp! Auch super, sowohl die Optik als auch die Mucke! Welche 3d-App hast Du für die Schädel benutzt? Sowas könnte ich auch gebrauchen ;)

Vielen Dank, Jenny, dass freut mich sehr! :hug: Ich finde, Kvelertak machen richtig Laune (ich werde sie bald Live sehen, freue mich schon voll :la:), da war für mich klar, mal auf ihre Musik zurückzugreifen. Für die Schädel habe 'Art Anatomy' benutzt, die bieten an sich noch mehr an, wie den gesamten Körperbau oder Fotovorlagen z.B., aber dafür müsste man bezahlen. Aber rotierbare Schädel sowie einzelne andere Körperparts und ein paar Zeichenstudien bekommt man kostenlos. Vielleicht gibt's auch noch bessere Apps, ich war nur zu faul mehrere auszuprobieren. :D

Ich dank Dir für den Anatomie-App-Tipp! Und hab viel Spaß mit Kvelertak :) Musik, die mich richtig vom Hocker haut, inspiriert mich auch oft zum Malen. Leider hör ich meistens im Auto Mucke, dann ist's schlecht mit dem direkten Umsetzen und zu Haus sind die Inspirationsatome dann oft verflogen :D

Das kenne ich auch! :D Manchmal ist es auch nur eine Zeile, wo man denkt 'Hey, da könnte man voll was draus machen!'. Passiert nur oft an den ungünstigsten Stellen, da ich sowieso schon immer viel mehr Ideen habe, als ich umsetzen kann, so kommt es dann häufig nicht zur Realisierung der Idee...:( Vielleicht ist das manchmal aber auch ganz gut...Die Ideen, die dann wirklich hängen bleiben, haben dann vielleicht 'richtiges' Potenzial bzw. persönliche Bedeutung. :D

Das mit den zuvielen Ideen zum Umsetzen kenn ich auch. Ein Klon wär gut, den man dann mit der Umsetzung der langweiligen Details betrauen kann, während man selbst schon an der nächsten Idee schraubt :D
Aber dann würde wohl vielleicht wirklich zu viel realisiertem Quatsch führen. Manchmal hat man ja Ideen, die auf den ersten Blick total supi erscheinen und am nächsten Tag denkt man dann, huh? Was hast Du Dir dabei gedacht :)
