Deal with the Dead by karichristensen Deal with the Dead by karichristensen
Defiler priest making a pact with an emissary of decay. Illustration for Legends of Norrath.

Looking back I wish I had time to shoot a photo of a friend in a mask for reference. But deadlines create limitations. Maybe I will get another undead piece soon and I can try that out.

2012 Sony Online Entertainment

See, just cause he's kinda sorta not alive anymore and whiffs a bit doesn't mean he cant be a great buddy. :)

I'm actually wondering a bit why the undead always has to be evil.

Good point I'm sure there are some benign undead out there. That might be a good painting:)

Kinda like in yahtzee Croshaws book Mogworld where this one necromancer raises a whole graveyard of undeads, but accidentally give them all free will, and when he's all "RISE MY MINIONS! MARCH TO MY FORTRESS!" with his staff held over his head.
And after a brief awkward silence one of them just like "Who the hell's this twat?".

It's a sort of humor fantasy parody thing set in a near future mmorpg where the AI have achieved sentience and self awareness.

Yes, judging at how skeleton henchmen are loathsome creatures he may have inadvertently "stink palmed" the Necromancer.

Oh thank you. Usually I paint characters chopping off hands rather than shaking them. So it was a unique challenge.

You've only shown us one hand of the Necromancer perhaps the other is gripping a dagger behind his back.

I think the reference would've only cut you back on time, because you have amazing talent for detail and all. Im a big fan of the brush work too :)
