I was working on this the other day, while chatting with some friends and taking a break from work. It started off as just a doodle of a rock and grew from there while we talked about random stuff. If I had planned it out, it might have been better... but I still kinda like it. I would like to work it a bit more, when I have the time. 

I'd like to add more skeletons and zombies coming out of the swamp and color it, but here's a Work-In-Progress shot, for now.

Oh wow, looking forward to seeing this get fleshed out even more. You really captured that creepy mood with just the sketch here. Love the weapons strewn around and the celtic cross in the background. The shattered coffin is a nice touch too. And what can i say about the zombie but... HOLY CRAP! That is scary stuff. Love your horror work, and we don't get to see it too often. Keep it up!

Thanks man! I still want to work it out a bit more, but hopefully it'll be super cool and creepy when it's done! :D

Jesus, what is that!? It looks like the illegitimate child of Nightcrawler and a zombie.

That aside, can't wait to see this finished.

I will probably edit that creature in the next update. I am not really satisfied with it, and I probably could ramp up the monstrosity level of it's design.

I see what you're saying. Despite being very-well drawn and designed, it just doesn't quite fit. There's a hint of "cuteness" to it that puts it a tad out of place in my mind. 

There's this eerie, spooky battlefield and a cutsie undead rat-man—but it doesn't seem like you, the artist, intended for that to be the case, right or wrong.

An undead rat-man on a battlefield is a really cool concept, but I think at the very least, give him a rat skull/face. I think that change alone would fix the issue. 

How about adding an undead crow on the sword's hilt or on the cross in the background? Too much? 

Thanks for the WIP!

Cuteness? Haha maybe you and I have different ideas of what is cute. XD  Ah, but he's certainly not a rat man. He'd need big ol buck teeth and big doofy ears for that. XD

I'll work it out on my own. Forgive me, but I am famously bad at taking suggestions. Just stubborn, I guess. XD
