Necromancer Activity (help and wip)
So, I decided to start working on my Necromancer Illustration for the Activity I run (in sig) and I doodle out some thumbs for composition. Feel free to let me know which one you like, and anything I can do to make it better.
p.s.- I know these aren't very dynamic, but it's a short deadline with a lot of work needed.

First one has nice background, but lack a good focal point. I assume you want the necromancer to be the attention grabber, but if that's the case, he's too far on the side. The bottom two are better composed, I'd suggest use the bottom left one and change the necormancer's pose to make it more active, or more creepy.
Also, I think it may help to make the simple thumb more interesting if you use a few simple shades to show the general shading and lighting.

thanks look, appreciate your time. These little doodles are even less then thumbs for me, but with everything else going on I didn't want to spend too much time. Thanks.

I just started working on something else at the same time, you know jumped overboard and didn't return. . .but there will be more stuff back there, eventually.
So McLean, when you coming by the stand and working again? Eric is out of town thursday-saturday, food for thought.

Love the sketch, looking real good.
It is, however, quite far from the subject given (Description: A powerful dark Knight Necromancer in a cemetary, summoning skeletons and zombies. He is covered in robes and armor, spellbook, etc.).

Then you should probably trace it and do another piece, or something, because I really like the secret society gentleman feel this piece has. It'd be a shame to let it go to waste

Looks very promising!
I'm looking forward to seeing it being rendered. His thigh is a bit long, isn't it? That is.. his kneecap is placed too low.. I think
