Haah, I love the energy in this~ I also love the idea of a necromancer who's afraid of zombies. That's cute. Where can I learn more about this character? Woodsie got a bio on him?

Hi!) I'm pleased to know that Etienne seems interesting! Unfortunately, all I have is a bunch of loose info and notes about him on my tumblr blog, here:… but I can tell you a bit more about him))

He's a Breton necromancer from High Rock, which I headcanon as something more like Orlais than whatever was in ESO, so Etienne is very french, very fancy, at least a little bit pretentious and has unhealthy relationship with brocade and laces. Dresses exclusively in black, dark grey and gold, wears eyeliner that would put an average goth to shame, he loves to look like somebody who can afford to be this fancy and dramatic, even though he clearly can't, since usually he's broke. As a bastard son of a marquis, he inherited nothing but a perfect, natural scowl full of disdain, love for things that are far too expensive and a strong feeling of both superiority and unfairness towards the world in general. Can be pretty bad-mouthed for somebody with his background, fluent in four languages: common, bretic, sload and sarcasm.
Though if one is patient enough to get through his obnoxious exterior, Etienne proves to be surprisingly kind, open-minded and gentle, as he cares a lot about people who are close to him. His sharp, jaded attitude is more of a shield. He desperately wants to belong somewhere, to be someone more than an unimportant figure standing in the shadow of his betters. 
Ambitious, inquisitive and talented, he refused to accept his low position, then over the years clawed himself a way to academical title in necromancy, though he's more of a scholar than a battlemage. He finds death and spiritual side of it fascinating, so he dedicated his life to studying all kind of etheral beings, curses and the very process of spirit becoming malevolent. The thing is, as much as he is fascinated by the etheral side of death, the corporeal one disgusts him deeply. To him animated bodies are at best unsettling, but usually simply repulsive to the point of terror. They smell, they rot, they fall apart and in his opinion there are few things more disturbing than that. Wraith, banshee, skeleton or a lich lich? Fine. But a single zombie? EEEEEEEEWWWWWWW xD

I really enjoy this zombie.  The jaw is perfect.  And the glowing eye effect is great as well.

You're afraid of zombies? :XD:

I mean, yeah.  

More comparable is that I really like hanging out with people but I get social anxiety... from hanging out with people...  Lmao

This is my favourite piece of art ever and someday I'll print it on the best paper available and put it over my chimney, in a golden frame. I mean, first I'll need a chimney, but I'll get one only to be able to hang this masterpiece over it xD

Also, if anybody is curious: Etienne is indeed afraid of zombies, or rather repulsed to the point of fear. He works with more etheral beings, like wraiths, spectres, all sort of ghostly beings. Skeletons at worst, but they have to be squeaky clean. Also, he's french xD

You're welcome! RP and or pen & paper games are awesome, and artwork showing how things play out can really make someone's day ^_^
