Septremius the Sorcerer by j0sh-3000 Septremius the Sorcerer by j0sh-3000
Septremius was never one to be satisfied with the curriculum at magic school, and so he left to study elsewhere in secret . Eventually he came upon a scroll that opened a gate to an alternate dimension called "the kingdom of shard" There he dueled with the Archmage of Shard, who proved a deadly adversary, and the battle cost him dearly. Septremius was wounded beyond healing by shard magic and he seized the Archmage's staff, and fled the realm. He soon discovered that the staff possessed strange properties. It had a blade sharp enough to wound the very fabric of time and space allowing him to travel to worlds only glimpsed by dreamers and madmen, as well as the power to conjure the lethal "Zero Sphere" an orb formed of extra-dimensional energy, that teleports its unlucky target to the kingdom of shard where they are dropped upon its jagged surface.

Thanks! Well, he's got most of his face..There are many personal hazards involved with conjuring massive spheres of energy and hopping through time and space you see..

It's great! I don't really know what to say. It's definitely more macabre than the other semi-finalists, and it's definitely wonderful to see something not made digitally, in this contest :) (sorry if it is, it looks like a physical painting rather than Photoshop)

Thanks very much! Oddly enough it is digital..It may look like paint because I spent quite a while oil painting before I ever painted digitally. I suppose certain things carried over.

Really sweet painting to go with an interesting background story. I especially like the design of the staff, with those giant bolts and the slight curve to it.

Does the eye pattern on the strap around his head always look like he's looking up? And does his other eye always glow, or does it ever appear normal? Trying to visualise how strange it'd be to see him when there is no epic spellcasting involved.

This is awesome! That "Zero Sphere" is way too kick ass. Reminds me of the Behelit. Really nice work, definitely one of the most original, inspired pieces submitted. Really like the gnarled forehead and collar on his robe.

Thank ya! Had a great time with this one, but there are so many changes I'd have made as afterthoughts!...I'll definitely keep fine tuning it. I also really like that collar. It's pretty much all I've ever wanted in a turtleneck.
