Lord George Henry Fredrickson
Lord George Henry Fredrickson. Mid to late 1800's. Lord Fredrickson is a Lich hunter & Master of the Occult of some quiet acclaim in certain discerning circles. By nature he is a reserved man, brutally intelligent, quick in thought and often in action, but never reckless.
Cursed more than a century ago by an Egyptian Lich, Lord Fredrickson walks the twilight between the true light of life and the enternal darkness of death. He can not die, though he can not really live either.
With each Lich Lord Fredrickson dispatches, he desperately searchers for a counter curse to his affliction, but none have been found, much to his continued frustration. Over the past few decades, his searches have turned more desperate, as madness is slowly claiming him. In his more lucid moments, he fears for those he cares for, but holds little hope of chaging his fortunes. Isabelle, his wife, has been instructed in the art of horcrux destruction, and how to kill a Lich, but as Lord Fredrickson has no known horcrux, it is feared that all efforts will be futile.

God damn Oreg!!! Didn't expect you to pull this one LOL.
There are 3 sides to every story. Yours, mine and THE TRUTH.
That's just funny. Nicely done, Oregeno. Looking forward to it.
A quick one...WIP²
My dearest Isabelle,
I can feel darkness falling over me and i know the end is near.
When you'll recieve this letter I will be no more.
Forgive me that I couldn't give you a more normal life.
Treasure the good moments we had togheter.
Never forget what I taught you.
To my immortal beloved

I should have seen that one coming. Very well, i'll take a shot mr. Frederickson too.
Horcruxes, eh? HP anyone?
It'd be cool to see someone bring in the Abhorsen's Bells from Sabriel on this one.
OK, do i have to go back and change the name in my Lady Isabelle backstory now??? good companion subject, Oregano, hope i have time to contribute (but not hopeful -- RL can be such a drag)

Willow-Steph-Laberis -Whisp That grinding/clanking/screeching/metal-on-metal-with-little-bits-of-gravel-thrown-in-for-good-measure noise you just heard was my brain attempting to register your name change
MorteM No. However, if you entered last round and featured Lord Fredrickson in your piece, it would be fun to do the picture focused on him now.
masque I missed the backstory But only if you want to.
Helzon Why not? It looks good and is complete enough to be taken. So, unless you expressly ask me not to, why wouldn't I? hehe
So are we allowed to somewhat make more of a "portrait" of him? if it includes shoulders? Because that's what I was sort of going for, but I know you're usually supposed to have most of the figure showing.
uziel nice wip, keep goin at it and finish it off, looks really promising.
helzon, like veeery mucho, story nice 2.
ahh another yummy chow
the sole intention is learning to fly
hey mike! no fair...you're not supposed to use a self portrait.
as you already know, i think it's a sweet beginning and i dig the story line too!
There is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "i" in meat pie. Meat is the anagram of team...~Shaun "Shaun of the Dead"
I am sooo in! Practise practise practise!
Sorry about that Shane, I was operating on a misconception, very much the one Define described. I thought like 75 percent of the figure had to be showing..or some number like that...therefore I figured it wouldn't be taken to poll. However, if you want to...cool, consider my hat in there.Helzon Why not? It looks good and is complete enough to be taken. So, unless you expressly ask me not to, why wouldn't I? hehe
Central: thanks, can wait to see your entry.
Red: Bro you don't know how many mirrors I busted with my ugly mug just for this likeness...I think it's up to 140 years of bad luck or something close to it. My grandkids will be paying off my foul mojo debt...LOL... Thanks man.
Edit: P.s. philosophical question...if this work is included in the final poll would this start a precedent that others might submit something that does not fit all the criterion in the guidelines and is withheld from inclusion in the poll and turn around and say "Well his was included why not mine?" type of thing. I wouldn't want to be the one to start that type of thing. So if you feel that my not adhering to the criterion set forth in the guidelines is such that it prohibits me from being placed in the poll then so be it...I will leave the decision up to you Shane.

this one looks very good. but acording to this activity rules,Originally Posted by HelzonI know this won't get taken to poll, but just couldn't resist.
characters must be 3/4 or full bodied, no busts or head-shots.
or have the rules changed oregano?
Chuck, yeah man...that's why I brought it up in my last post. Refer to above. I wanted to be quite sure of things and NOT have any controversy start up as a result of it.

very well. anyways - good piece. love the beastly side of the guy. creepy.Originally Posted by HelzonChuck, yeah man...that's why I brought it up in my last post. Refer to above. I wanted to be quite sure of things and NOT have any controversy start up as a result of it.
No. You are absolutely correct. The rules have not changed. Thanks for being more mindful of them than my illustrious self (not)Originally Posted by Chuck,mate.or have the rules changed oregano?
I apologize for the confusion there, folks. I'll blame it on an over indulgence of... salsa and chips. Yeah. That'll work.
I never had a notice of this part of the forum, till two days ago, a friend of mine, Dominus, invited me to take part. Looks damn interesting, so I´m in. Today started with the idea, but, still a WIP, maybe it will chance a lot till Saturday.
Cheers to all,
It would be nice to see the contestants of the past C.h.o.W. include their Isabelles in another perspective. Here's a nice chance to draw your character twice!
Chuch,mate : you keep surprising me with your speed/quality ratio, if that's a correct way to put it in English. You COULD do some more on that Lich though.
I'm gonna give this a whirl. I love dead things. Or near-dead, as the case may be. WIP scribble scrabble.....
And here's the outcome. Man, there were a lot of fantabulous entries! Voting's gonna be a bitch. But in a good way!

Looking forward to that, dear sir.
Will you be doing the same drawing but seen trough the window?
oh, no, too obvious, that. i'm continuing the little melodrama hinted at in the backstory i posted with the Lady Isabelle piece. gotta wait for it, though, don't want to give anything away; i have myself under an NDAOriginally Posted by ZergalothWill you be doing the same drawing but seen trough the window?
This is my first time posting in CHOW... here's my piece:
Read comics at:
ANATTA, My webcomic!
Took me longer than I'd like to say coming up with the location for these two. First one's a bazaar setting, trying to get a feel for the lighting and environment.
Final: "Lord Fredrickson goes to the desert... in a dinner jacket."
(Wacom, longer than it should have been)
