    Lord George Henry Fredrickson

    Historical Fiction*
    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.

    Never forget what I taught you.

    To my immortal beloved

    Yours

    G.H. Frederickson

    Does it have to 'match' the previous chow winner?

    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

    medic...!

    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

    Cheers,
    ~Shane

    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.

    hey mike! no fair...you're not supposed to use a self portrait.

    cheers!

    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.
    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,
    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.

    No. You are absolutely correct. The rules have not changed. Thanks for being more mindful of them than my illustrious self (not)

    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,
    Eric

    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.

    Update! Just under the wire...

    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!

    Extension!

    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.

    Progress 1

    Final: "Lord Fredrickson goes to the desert... in a dinner jacket."



    (Wacom, longer than it should have been)
