Came the times of peril, did the ground gape,
and did the dead rest unquiet 'gainst us.


Felt like drawing some sword swinging skeleton. It's quite funny that they actually use swords even if Hammerites are more into hammers in general.

I'm not going to pressure you, but I'd appreciate it whenever you can. Maybe more mages and Children of Karras too!!!

Oh man, great job! Those guys drove me nuts! Then again, I did enjoy blowing them up with mines... ;P  :mwahaha:

Thanks! Heh, I never learnt to use mines properly - I just used to either sneak past them or climb somewhere high up and cast my rage upon them in a form of flashbombs :XD: Just found out quite recently that you can actually backstab them with a sword...

Oh, that I knew. You can actually go up against them with a sword, but the timing must be just right. It's just that blowing them up was safer and so much more entertaining. ;P

No fear. No pain. No hesitation. No mercy. No life.
And utterly unstoppable.

I wonder if they would take damage from a modern flashlight. :P

Those hammer haunts are effin' scary. I was always terrified to face them in the first game, those old quater levels are nerve wreckingDead (RIP)

Yeah, those Old Quarter levels... D: Personally, I feared more zombies than haunts - I just can't stand zombies in any game.  :P

Yeah those zombies were scary aswell because you just couldn't kill them unless you had holy water or fire arrows. And the sounds they made....

Wow, this is the first time I've ever felt sorry for a haunt! Something about the angle and... well, he can't have a sad face because he doesn't have a face at all ;) But regardless, this kinda brings out a tragic side to these lost souls I'd never thought of before Waaaah! Nice work!

:imspeechless: This must be the most depressing piece I've drawn thus far.

Because of games and movies and such, we think we have already seen all, but when you actually think about some of those things, they are pretty horrifying. Not necessarily scary, but awful and sad - undeniably something one wouldn't want to experience. scared.... 'the 2nd' 
Tafferwocky's avatar
Oh yes, definitely! It's easy to get pretty blasé about these things after seeing them so much, and not really think about them. Especially in fantasy settings like this.

HAUNT!!! Lovely Shoujo (Aaaaah Nooo) [V3] 

Brilliant work, my friend! Nice and eerie. :)

Thank you, friend! Giggle Never really cared much about Haunts, but I guess drawing something makes you think about the subject; I started to really pity these guys when drawing this. I mean, zombies are pretty much mindless, reanimated bodies, but Haunts have a consciousness of some degree. Listening them makes me wonder if they endlessly feel the burning of their long gone flesh or something... Fire

Thief knew how to make the undead scary--something that so many games still have yet to get right. Nod
