necromancer by ogilvie necromancer by ogilvie
My interpretation of the Necromancer from the Hobbit. He's only mentioned in passing thought to would be fun to flesh him out.

Kind of reminds me of The Patriarch from Magic: The Gathering. He was the leader of the Cabal in the Odyssey through Scourge novels

Dude this is fucking amazing! XD Is there anyway you could make an assassin necromancer? Like younger with swept back black hair and goatee, and multiple short swords strapped to his body?

Going with all of the previous comments, this is a great design, harking back to some of the earlier designs of the LOTR films, especially with the Mouth of Sauron - dark priestly kind of designs. Having known that the Necromancer was indeed Sauron, I was confused as to whether you had already known that and were just going with some idea of what he would have looked like if he still had a physical body, but of course, that's no longer the case. Awesome either way!! :)

Thanks alot. Yeah it was a case of me not knowing and going off a brief description in the book trying to visualise a character that might inhabit the world. I wish I could say it was on purpose and I knew all a long lol.

This is a fantastic design, considering there isn't much reference to his appearance in the Hobbit :nod:
Like someone else mentioned, this is Sauron in disguise. So I think that the subtle similarities to Sauron's appearance (tall, dark, slim, with many layers of angular armor and a scary/ugly appearance) work extremely well :D Great detail in the face and chest. :clap:

Interesting take on the character; though he reminds me more of a high priest of a dark religion then a demonic dark lord, I do like how his robes and armor are intertwined.

Thanks. Yeah thats what I was kinda going for, when I drew it I didn't know much of the backstory other than what I'd read in the Hobbit. :)
