As I am doing a diorama for my project I am continuing to find necromancy assets in which I am to model to put within my scene. One of the main thing that I am looking for is an Alter. This is because this is what necromancers use to cast spell and mix potions for experiment. A lot of these alters are stylised to make it look like they have slayed dead people and they have collected their bones. Most of them have pictures of skulls on the table. I have done some research and have found some picture of some alters. Also some pictures of some smaller assets in which have relatable features to the topic.
Here are some of the pictures that I have found below:
This altar shows the skulls and the daggers in which I would use as relatable objects to necromancy. Personally this one stands out to me because it gives the best idea of what they are like and it also has the dark gloomy colours in which give off darkening thoughts.This one shows different symbols, they look really good and are easy to texture on whilst making the altar. candles to give off the dim lighting in the background. And again the dagger in which they use to draw blood from prey. In which they use in potions or perhaps witchcraft. This is a simple altar but looks very nice in the fact that the stone is cracked and it gives off the feeling that it is old and also has been built by hand with all of the stones. This could be because a necromancer likes in a cave or somewhere underground in a desolate location. Again you have the candles giving off the same atmosphere as the other photos. along with the skulls, some of the skulls have candles on the head, this makes it look scary.
For some of my assets I have wanted to create weapons in which a necromancer may have lying around I have found this sword in which has been has a golden dragon on the end of the sword. The blade is made out of a sharp metal in which is crafted into a flame. Personally I think that the blade represents the fact that the dragon can breath fire. Necromancer have cool looking weapons to intimidate the enemy. I am going to attempt to try and make my own sword in which is similar to this and has sharp jagged edges to the blade.One of the main weapons that a necromancer uses to cast magic is a staff, without this their powers are weakened. Necromancers use these staffs to be able to cast spell in which can be used to destroy people or bring them back to life and to be controlled by a necromancer. This staff has a very cool design in the fact that the handle is made out of wood. At the end of the staff it has a metal end. This is so you can hold it on the floor. Also it looks as if you can use it to hang up the staff. I am going to craft a staff as one of my weapon assets and am going to relate it to my sword by adding the dragon theme, personally the staff above would look cooler perhaps if the handle near the dragon head had some spikes. This would make the staff look a lot more intimidating.This is a creative asset for necromancy because there are many different types of test tubes and ways in which necromancers can make different potions and spells. This is something that I know of personally and have had experience with test tubes in the past. I thought it would be a good asset to make and would be something good to see on the table. I also like the Z design of the stand.
