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.

Wow, my browser sure didn't want to load my pic... Took 2 refreshes... Maybe I need a new host.
Anyway... Pan and orcatraz got my votes. Didn't wanna go nuts on nominations and thought those 2 were exceptionally executed and best represent the character.
I'm not sure how well this poll's working though as it currently says pan and orcatraz both have 100% of the votes. Maybe this will change with more nominations?
i voted for hurricane.
there were ALOT of good entries...but huri's looks like he could kick EVERYone elses asses...at the same time. and if a motherfucker is hunting litches..and is cursed...he damn well better be a tough sum'bitch.
I wont fail now
I voted for Orcatraz and Helzon. Orcatraz, because the detail is amazing for a black and white picture. Job VERY WELL DONE, love the mood. Helzon's piece was totally different from everyone else's, and caught my eye when I saw it. I like it, I like it a lot!
yay for polls.
um, shane....where's my entry, bro?
cool...multiple vote option.
went with orcatraz and pan - felt the environment and the characters imprisonment within it.
some superb entries all across the board.
I went with Pan, Orcatraz, and Mainloop.
Redehlert and Hurricane were Honourable mentions. Even though Red's didn't get into the poll - at the moment - hopefully that gets fixed soon
Um... good question...Originally Posted by redehlertum, shane....where's my entry, bro?
PM me your image link and I'll drop it in.
Yeah what happened to Red's piece? Oreg?
I went nuts with this one simply because we can pick so many Here are the great eight:
Pan, Orcatraz, Mainloop, Masque, Pixelherder, hurricane, Angry Pirate and Corrick.
I have no idea why but Corrick's piece really appealed to me. But I thought it needs to be busier in the background coz he seem like he's at an egyptian marketplace.
There are 3 sides to every story. Yours, mine and THE TRUTH.
sent ya a pm, shane. thanks for the square up.
I voted for orcatraz, morbidhumor, romance, Pan. But orcatraz entry is the best for me! Really beautiful.
Beats me. I didn't see it for some reason when I collected everyone's... He's in now, thoOriginally Posted by darth massacreYeah what happened to Red's piece? Oreg?
Damn. Should have read about the multiple votes *before* voting. Nevermind. Hurricane gets my vote (for previously stated reasons). If I was allowed to go back and vote again I'd also put ticks next to Dominus (fabulous furtrimmed coat and face tatts), Orcatraz (all round slick entry with a sensational background) and Pan (just love those tones and style). Hell - there'd be a few more too no doubt. Really strong competition this one. Well done all.
redehlert, pixelherder, mainloop, ericdee got my votes
Mutley, pan, young paddy1, morbidhumor, walnut (damnit you should of gotten a vote from me!!! f*ck! stupid me) orcatraz great entries !!!!!!!!!
the rest of you : you rock!
this round was really great, what a turn out !! wow
cheers and thanks for the votes so far!!
BJÖRN HURRI | CONCEPT ARTIST & ILLUSTRATOR
MY PORTFOLIO | HURRICANES DAILY DOODLES '12
MY EXCLUSIVE SKETCHBOOK
VIKING: BATTLE FOR ASGARD
THE OTHER BROTHERS
i went for
hurricane, pixelherder, angry pirate, pan, orcatraz, main loop and mutley.
great set of entries this time!
if i had to pick just one it would have been Pan. lovely style.
orcatraz is a close second: love the silohetting on the feet.
hurricans is nice: great rendering as usual + a very distinctive character.
main loops i love but the painting could do with a little more confidence in places ( i am a fine one to talk eh?) top enty though!
mutley: i just love your piece as a whole: great composition, lovely linework and lots of drama. top stuff!
Hmmmm, I want one more vote ...for redehlert! Oregano, if its possible add my vote for redehlert. Red yours last CHOW and COW are really good!! BTW color in COW its even better then B%W..this time.
So my votes went like this: orcatraz for fantastic oppressive atmosphere, main loop and hurricane for near flawless execution, and redehlert for the spin he gave the character. Some damn fine work this round, but those are my faves.
Unabashedly I was a vote . There were just too many wonderfully rendered and well thought out pieces. Take a look at the poll results you'll know who I voted for. But suffice it to say what a hell of a round from everyone! And I can only imagine the jaw dropping images that are gonna show up for the next round.
My hat's off to each and every one of you.
Define: Thank you so much for the vote, I am humbled and grateful.
Best to you all!
Added it numerically, tho it doesn't show your name.Originally Posted by JakkaSHmmmm, I want one more vote ...for redehlert! Oregano, if its possible add my vote for redehlert.
I was a complete vote too. There were so many amazing entries, it was liberating to be able to support them all!
I voted for:
~bluefooted...the tarot connection was genius.
~Corrick, for a wonderful concept.
~hurricane, because of the Brom-y, Victorian steam punk vibe! And I love bald men.
~mainloop...he caught the portrait style of the period beautifully
~morbidhumor, succint and precise and eerie
~orcatraz...spot on. You can just taste his antiquity.
~pan, for his hot Egyptian sun and wicked, baleful stare.
Okay, now that I'm sure I've offered too much information, I have to say this was a great first experience here, and I'm mightily impressed with everyone! Cheers!
Hellzone, Hurricane, Pixelherder... 'nough said.
wow. i mean that. wow. thank you for the votes and God bless the multiple voting option.
I love the multiple voting option because I can just go really quick through the line-up and pick out every little thing that catches my eye
I ended up voting for dream_sear, orcatraz, angry pirate, romance, pan, and red. Something about each of these just stood out from the rest. Congrats all, great round!
Mutley, Redehlert, Ericdee-those were my favourites

and joy in your mind".........
Alright alright, I conceed the multiple vote system was a must this week...just too many amazing entries. I would still urge ppl to use their votes wisely...the system breaks down when ppl start spreading votes around to everyone. I'm going with Loop and Orcatraz, but everyone deserves a special gold star this week!
Pfew! Thank goodness for multiple votes. I was worried until I read that. I gave mine to Orcatraz and Pixelherder. There were lots of great pieces, but those were the two that really said, "if I were making a movie/game, this would be what I'd want at my side."
actually, I didn't know about the multiple vote system, so I only voted one person. Not a vote spreadOriginally Posted by JeffZNYI would still urge ppl to use their votes wisely...the system breaks down when ppl start spreading votes around to everyone.
