    Realistic? Dead lich kings aren't real, they don't exist, they are like santa-claus, just fiction... I shouldn't have said that.

    No, for real, i have no idear what will come out of this (first I have of find out what a lich king really is). peace

    scumworks: um....ahehe.....well......

    mojo: a lick king is usually related to the arcane arts. elements related to a lich usually revolve around magic, or some sort of powerful artifact. They are more like a skeleton with the mind of some demon/undead mage. A lot more intelligent than a skelo, and usually a lot more evil. Also often related to frost and ice elements as opposed to fire. hope that helps.

    I have a killer design going, hope i can get my free hosting to work. Blergh.

    Anyway its midnight here now. Catching some z's. The lich king is safely imprisoned in my sketchbook.....for NOW!! BWAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA


    :evilbat:



    Peace

    An other name for a lich king could be undead high wizard......so it is often confused with a necromancer....but they contol death...they aren't always dead...so liches don't have to be a skeleton...it also could have some flesh...and be called zombie....

    aw, sweet, another good topic... yay! I'm gonna try to squeeze in a sketch later.

    Oh, by the way, I've got a question for fellow DSGers. I'm just curious, who works with the good ol' (real) paper and pencil (or pen) in your finished sketch? I see a lot of digital line work, but just wondering if I'm an old fart 'cause I still stick with p&p. Just curious.

    another 10 minute dealy. i'm liking the time limit i've given myself. it doesn't give me a chance to think. which in my case, is good.

    DSG 251: Creature: Undead Lich King.

    i think i should take out those pupils- it might give him more of a somber feel.

    I've never heard of a Lich King but thanks to the detailed descriptions I understand what it means.

    Harmony Steel and Forkface those are great. Love the postcard idea.

    MrKayne I try to bounce around between pencil, pen, photoshop, and painter. It's great practice and I can really say it has helped me get around in painter a little better.

    Anyway this one was pen and then I added a touch of red in ps. Kinda goofy but what the hell, it's a great break from real work. Did it at lunch, about 45 min.

    DSG 251: Creature: Undead Lich King.

    And whats this bs about Santa not being real?

    From a Dungeons and Dragons standpoint (uh oh, did I just out myself? ), a lich is a powerful wizard who uses magic to turn himself into an immortal undead creature. They're usually not skeletons so much as emaciated, although they are undead and don't really heal, so over time most usually lose quite a bit of what's left of their mummified flesh. Exposed skulls and other structures are common as they have to deal with people trying to kill them all the time (aka "adventurers").

    Most of them continue their magical study (one of the prime factors for entering lichdom in the first place..more time to pursue magical interests) and are quite powerful.

    Wow, I'm a nerd. :eek:

    nothing special here...

    my all time favorite rendition of a lich is still Stephen Fabian's version of Azalin Rex.
