Damn, you certainly are one talented artist :o This would work quite well for them, in my opinion.

It's a great drawing but I don't thnk it would work. It looks like a cross between a scarecrow and a zombie. Necro's look as smart as any other mages, they're not dressed in rags.

Looks pretty good to me for an old necromancer...maybe a little too zombie-like for use in the game though. Our necro model (I assume we'll only have one) should be easily distinguishable from a zombie.

I like it personally. Comes fairly close to what I was imagining...they still need to look a little more diseased though.

Odd, if you want something to wrap your head around..since you've read the Dark Towers books, imagine they're somewhat like Rhea of the Coos. Riddled with sores, rotting skin, hair thin and stringy on their head, looks like they're just a breath away from death, but despite their appearence still have alot of vitality and pride in their stature. That should be what really seperates a Necro from a zombie, the way they move and act.

I have read all of the Dark Tower series.
I hadn't seen that necro description post before, so following that description hat's a pretty good concept.
I think you shoiuld bend them over like an old hag, and they should drag one leg like a cripple. The bones of really old people would be the first to go wonky and bent. He looks pretty healthy in that stance. They should have a permenant grinning leer with black and missing teeth.

Yes, it's very good! :) The thing I would suggest, is to tame the clothing down a bit as right now it does look zombiefied and give him some old worn out shoes. ;)

This guy is still kind of grungy, but he looks a little more stable and less like the brain-gnawing zombie type. Thanks for all the suggestions before, they really help develop the concepts much quicker.

Do you have one from the other end of the spectrum - a smartly dressed sorcerer type, dark and wicked looking, for compare/contrast of opinion?

I like all of the recent ones, but if I had to pick and choose I'd go with Number 2..the one with the string of ears around his neck.

I thought there was going to be a hood that left shadows on their faces. These guys remind me of the Nosferatu of White Wolf fame, although more... confidant?

The faces are IMO pretty good. But I wonder why a necormance would run around like in rags. Wouldn't they be characters more guided by greed and selfesteem. So I would expect them to like like the concepts, but with a more noble clothing. After all, they spend lot of research time to help themself and not anybody else, so I would expect this to be reflected in their cloths. A high regard for themself and disregard for everybody else.

I assume byt he way the necros look we decided to go for the other classic necro style, where they've become so involved into there work that they are half crazed forgetting about reality only to focus on their powers
