I had so much fun drawing this page (and the next one). I think they are my favorite. I really like how, instead of the screeching monologue in the other versions, the draugr is only able to howl out ‘DOOR.’

I did a lot of posing for drawing reference for this version, to try to get things to look ‘right’ – and I think some of the more skeletal-draugr drawings came out the best, because they most strongly followed the model (minus the addition of decomposing skin). That’s not a negative thing – I love my natural draugr-esque build and adore my veiny hands. (Yet I am quite happy being alive and not undead).
