Nice job with the shading and details; I really like the stance on the corpse while the girl cast her spell. :)

Ooooh, this is neat! I love how the skeleton has muscle and skin on it. I don't think I've ever seen that in an art piece that wasn't an anatomical study. :D

I'd always wondered how it would be like if you'd be able to raise the dead...

Now you know! Wink/Razz It was a pretty challenging task to draw a skeleton turning into a human.
