This art came from maybe before summer this year or late last year. I re-imagined basil the bat lord with a lot more edge and as an evil vampire serial killer who uses terror tactics to terrify the enemy, like using human corpses part of his armor (Lovingly ripped off from this ), hence fright knights. I imagine him as starting out as the seventh son (more in tune with the supernatural), and was cursed to become a vampire by Willa the witch. This would corrupt him and lead him to try to overthrow the king, brining him into conflict with his six older brothers (who each belonged to a different classic castle faction). Although he spread destruction and anarchy with his armies of sadistic killers, he ultimately failed to take over and was finally killed fighting his older brother, the leader of the dragon lords.
Despite this piece being pretty old, I still can’t seem to improve on the design I came up with him (despite my efforts).
So what do you think? is the edge to real? Is it spoopy? Does it sorta remind you of him?
