Dog Skull Boy is cute in a scruffy sort of way...too bad he's an asshole.

XD It's a character design type I keep reusing because I really like it, haha.

Admittedly good clothes can make even a skeleton look good ;D

I think in this world and to people familiar with them, liches look a bit less uncanny than they would to people in real life!

It's interesting that something as simple and uniform as the human skull can be graphically rendered as frightening, horrific, depressing, silly, comical, clinical, melancholy, etc.

The first time I landed upon your nation(Gatwick Airport, to be precise), I encountered a PSA poster with a solarized photograph of a skull.

The caption read, "Help Keep Rabies Out of Great Britain".

The poster gave me a sense of worry and dread. It did not occur to me until several years later, that the US has never eradicated rabies and I never gave it a second thought!

I see it as a matter of lighting and angle. Different angles of the human skull evoke different feelings in me. My late grandpa used to own a Homo Sapiens skull on display that was donated to him once by his archeology buddies and over time that was what I noticed as a kid. The angle from which I see a skull and what the light conditions are. Changes between funny, scary, sad and so on without actually doing anything.

That exactly works the same here with the Liches in my case. Without any need to deform the skull for effects.
