    The Lady Fredrickson photographed here aprox. 1889 various spectators claim to be able to see the image of suposseldy deceased Lord Fredrickson in the shadows of this dark photo... others claim it is a trick of the light.

    I've been looking for 1800s women's fashion. This one's got pretty complete thumbnails but you gotta pay for the detailed pics. Still the thumbnails are pretty good for a start and since its open to interpretation ....

    Great, now i can finally put that oversized centuries-spanning fashion history book from Taschen i got to some use. Time to do some big ass skirts and huge featheryop hats. Just one question: does her husband get to be in the picture too. Or would that be overkill?

    i plan on weaving him in, as to me he represents a prime motive for the mood of the image i'm cogitating. probably won't be treated with the same degree of attention as Lady Isabelle, though, so as not to diffuse the focus.

    re: masque: Pretty much what i was thinking too. Without the angle of the undead betrothed you'd only have a chick in a silly skirt. I'm thinking the surroundings would have to be paid attention to as well, what with the mentioning of exotic locales and all that. It's going to be though not to start putting in too much though.

    It's an undead necromancer/wizard. Kind of the result of what happens when you mess with the wrong kind of arcane magics for too long.

    me, too, 'til i googled it, and even then had to make some uneducated guesses, as i don't D&D (though my son does). i think its from a Germanic word meaning "corpse"

    Character study

    Progress 1

    Work hit kinda hard this week, so I didn't have a chance to add color.

    Final:

    "Lady Isabelle Fredrickson sits amid the chaos around her, penning the last entry into her travel diary before she and her languishing husband depart for England. As she collects her thoughts, one indian labourer splits from the steady stream of moving crates and boxes to display for her the most recent expedition's prize, the bound skull of a dark Hindu priest, over three hundred years old and a most difficult creature to kill. With the eye sockets covered, the skull will safely travel with the lady and lord, to find its place among the many victories in their sprawling manor."

    CHOW #012 - Lady Isabelle Fredrickson

    (Wacom, many minutes)

    Hey guys,

    Greetings form Dillon Beach, California!

    Regarding the Lich, the first reference I can recall of it was from Tolkiens' lord of the Rings: the head Wring Wraith was a Lich King - By all counts, Voldemort from Harry Potter is a Lich of sorts as well. Essentially, it is a Wizard that has attained somewhat of a borrowed immortality. They lock part of their soul in a horcrux to keep it safe and tethered to this plane of existance. If the horcrux(s) is destroyed, the Lich is killed. Otherwise, they keep coming back.

    Hope that helps!

    Cheers,
    ~Oreg.

    Oh, and here's the wikipedia entry for Lich: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lich

    I think you might have been mistaken Oregano, i believe he was the Witch King and not the Lich King, but if he was infact a lich i will stand corrected
