Lich WIP

Delving further into the Lich.   This is based on the fourth sketch from this lineup.  I took inspiration from Egyptian priests when doing the original sketch, but as I progressed on with the final image I felt something was lacking. with his design.  To spice things up a bit, I took the curved edges of his hat and turned that into a motif that repeats across his armor.

Lich Sketches

Hey all, apologies for being away for so long.  We've been very busy ruminating at Pintsized Games about what to do with our game, so I've been quite distracted from my art.  I've still been keeping busy though, and here are some sketches I'd like to share with you.

These are thumbnails for a Lich.  Liches are undead creatures formed when powerful people magically bind their souls to an item in order to ensure their immortality.  Said immortality doesn't affect the aging process however, so they all eventually end up looking like your random zombie/skeleton dude, except with some pimping armor and weapons.

 It was incredibly fun doing these thumbnails, something that I choose not to do sometimes because of time constraints.  It also makes sure you only put out your best work, because a lot of the really awful and unoriginal stuff gets left behind in the sketchbook.  I can't say I'll be very rigid about doing thumbnails for all of my future work, but it's something to keep in mind.

Dire Rat

Are there Dire Mice?  Or are Rats just Dire Mice?  In any case, here is a Dire Rat WIP.  Hm. That right forequarter looks messy.
