Some initial research and thumbs designing a look for Necromancers.
As with the Abhorsen design, I like inject an asymmetrical element into the design - it adds to the foreign and curious nature of the Old Kingdom inhabitants. So I experiments with top/bottom heavy designs, and exaggerated armour.

Departing from the Abhorsen for a bit, I decided to look at creating the home of the Clayr, the Glacier. After some brief research I sketched out some thumbnails.
I then look at some of Daniel Dociou's work for Guildwars 2, and began to incorporate some more architecture into my thinking.

Another experiment with Maya Fluids, trying to create a head that looks somewhat ethereal. A lesson learned from this is that it next I will use pre-rendered 2D planes of smoke fluid - generating them in the scene takes too much processing power.

I've decided that hooded look is the way to go with the Abhorsen, it evokes mystery, forbidden knowledge and intimidation. The sketch on the right is nearing a finalised result I feel - it looks capable, commanding, and experienced.
