    just an idea... i won't go with it since it's super boring, but i will probably do some more sketches and hopefully a finished piece. i like the topic.
    but i had some fun doing this sketch since it's pretty small (100% zoomed in)

    Nice ideas guys....I really like this topic. Going to give it a blast...Here's my quick sketch just to get the idea in. My initial thought was also to have some sort of necromancer chick, but then I thought hey. Why not someone who tends to the graves of the fallen using nature magic to keep flesh flowers gracing their resting places through the autumn and winter? It's Autumn after all...Guess what colours I'm thinking?

    Damien Levs - Yeah i guess the necromancer thing is kinda the most generic and obvious route, that being said you idea is prity cool and will be awesome if you can pull it off. The initial sketch is lookin good.

    sketchy sketchy!

    very suggestive theme
    I think I'll drive away from the fantasy/undead/necromancer topic, and try something more lovecraft-esque or poe-inspired

    warburton - That coming along nicely

    onez - Nice view point. I think the lighting could look super epic in this. Nice thoughts about Lovecraft/Poe!!

    -----

    Here's where I am at. I am not finding this easy. That's a good thing right?
    Sort of testing the colours as I go.

    WIP

    first thing that came to mind was a lady reading stories to ghosts in the graveyard like wendy in peter pan
    but ended up going with a wife who's about to follow her dead husband, as in acient china women were expected to accompany their husbands to their grave.
