From the scrolls of the monk Heraclates- 'From the West comes a terror only whispered by frightened nuns and ancient senile priests. They call him the devourer he rides on the mist and walks with death. With unholy flame and might he casts down those of weak faith only to raise them from beyond the grave to do his evil bidding. He is the bearer of the infernal helm, the wielder of the Dragon soul blade, and the enemy of all that is good.' This was my first evil PC (and since he scared me so my only one.) An anti-paladin human witha penchant for pyromania. His pastime was burning churches and hanging those within. His trademark, leaving the priest hanging in the doorway as he burned the rest of the village/town in the area. He now is a death night to his god Shados, and has begun to study necromancy. He wields a sword imbued with the soul of a black dragon.

You know, I actually like your colored pencil version better. I like the feeling of the strokes and there was a certain dirtiness to the look. The digital makes everything too crisp and cut out. I think the skyline here looks better than the all black in the CP version (hey mix and match! 2), but I think that a lot of areas that are too sharp, need to be softened a bit. Like in the background with the fire and clouds. Perhaps it's more akin to your style, but I think softening those edges would help the viewer look more at the figure in the foreground.

Strange yet cool coloring. Nice detail with fore and back ground. This would make a nice boss in a video game with his sword and such...

This fella is evil... to the ’enth’ degree, you know? He is standing at a PODIUM in the middle of a graveyard, summoning the undead, while the villagers’ houses burn to the ground. Yet... the only question I am left with is: "Was the podium there, or did he have to bring it in himself?" Anyway... great pic.
