i love its grinning face...

the green light's cool... but the lamp's the prettiest.

Your style is awesome -- you can really see the story behind the images.

They seek their leader, so that they can finish the battle. They have been seeking him for over a thousand years. But looking at the light in the background, they won't have to seek much longer... for he is rising again...
Wonderful picture. ^_^ Reminds me of the necromancer I'm roleplaying, and I love the creepy undead feeling you get from this. But it's not just that. Their poses, with such obvious intent and purpose, convey that there's more than just a spell keeping them alive - there's an animating spirit that won't let them rest. Thank you for such an amazing picture.

They remind of the skeletons you have to face in FFXII...Say, have you tried that game? Some of the monsters are inspirational and I think you'll like them.
