Still a ways to go with this pic. This ones been resisting me pretty hard over the last few days. Still working out the forced perspective for Vampires body and trying to find a happy balance for all the elements.
I had the idea that these necromantic bolts required drawing Spectral energy from Reserve Undead Vampire has housed... somewhere. usually costing the body of a low ranking undead. Larger spells tho require a much longer cast time and also calling in of "favors" from high ranking undead.
The ultimate cost being the lost of that creatures servitude. Allowing the high ranking undead to roam free afterwards with no master. Much to the detriment of all who will later encounter it.
This is the moment before Vampire places 2 massive holes into the Monstress, opening the door for Orphan land the death blow. Though she was dead to begin with...
