Cairo King Snake by chief-orc Cairo King Snake by chief-orc
Other then the odd dracolich, most of the undead I've seen are human-shaped. Thought I'd mix it up a bit with some non-standard undead action.

Humans aren't the only ones who mummify their dead.

A mummified naga makes perfect sense! It's a wonder why it hasn't been done before.

Very nice idea indeed - now that i think of Aboleths with their tendency to dominate and turn humanoids into mutated slaves to serve them would certainly fit the pharaonic mindset behind mummies, pyramids and all that stuff to a t.

Oooh, a mummy abolith would be pretty awesome, though it might be kinda hard to dry out an aquatic monster... maybe a peat-bog mummy ;)

That could be quite interesting to develop for a game indeed, the Aboleth peat-mummy, along with its swamp tomb, an inverse pyramid or cenote mausoleum, guarded by a variety of servants living, dead &/or automata...

Very nice design. Love the Egyptian theme along with the non-humanoid form. Great stuff (as always).

You could probably do a whole series of uncommon undead. Actually, let me rephrase that. "You should totally do a series of uncommon undead!"

Sweet idea. Mummification would look great on a yuan-ti (as it does here), and damn - undead aren't creepy enough, let's add a snake to the mix! ;)

Do it, see how the kid handles an undead yaun-ti king! By the way, did he like the drawings of the party?

Yep, very much, has them on his wall. This weekend I hope to run the game for him, the first since getting the pics. Should be fun.

Just really clued in to the beard, here, btw. Most excellent.

Awesome!! I love nagas! They're just so cool! They're my second favorite mythical beasts! You did a really awesome job on this guy! I love how the bandages came out! I wonder if you were to punch him would your fist go through him lol? Also, would would he arise from a pot of you played a flute lol? :)

I imagine that he's just full of cobras, so I wouldn't want to punch him.

It makes me kinda want to draw more abnormal undead. Maybe a vampire beholder, but then I'd be afraid that it would give my DM some ideas...

I once ran a game where the group came across a series of undead serpents, but they were all the cast-off shedded skins of the queen who ruled the lair. = 3 = It was hilarious to see them try to figure out what was going on.

Thanks! For some reason, I wanted to draw a mummy wearing a golden mask, and it turned into this.
