Caster Fanart (Update 10/28)
So, as with anything Erfworld, there are similar parallels between people from there and from "our" world. King Dickie, Prince Haggar, and of course numerous casters and characters of all kinds have eerie resemblances to figures we all know. This, coupled with the fact that we just plain haven't seen certain types of casters, got me to thinking. "What would other Croakamancers look like? We've only ever seen Wanda." And that stretched to "How about Weirdomancers? Or Retconjurers? Heck, how about I just go ahead and draw some? And while I'm at it, I'll do all the others too." And so here we are. I plan on going through each caster type and whipping up a few new residents of Erfworld including, of course, the prime example character from each if they exist. So far I've completed:
See if you can guess who is who. The answers will be poster in the accompanying forum thread.
Next up are the Dollamancers.

@Phoebette: Are you sure about Arthas? The good-guy Arthas had a Hammer. The bad guy one would have been a fine candidate for Croakamancy, but then the outfit should have been different. I know the good guy has revive-magic, but he doesn't create undead units. Also that guys facial expression doesn't match Arthas, because Arthas was hot-blooded. And since all other casters seem to have a very fitting expression on their faces I just can't match that armored guy with Arthas.
Maybe it's someone with a punny name like the Dirtamancer on the far right, Dirty Harry?
He kinda reminds me of Aragorn (http://fr.jrrtolkien.wikia.com/wiki/Aragorn), but that can't be right.
Pretty sure the Necromancer on the right is Arthas, similarities are too much to be unintentional. The colour scheme and positioning of his outfit are, for his paladin days, almost perfect (brooch, shoulder side for the cloak, belt buckle etc), even if he's weilding a sword. However he also has a smiley face on his shoulders to be reminiscent of the skulls; looks like he's a mash-up of pre-and-post paladin days so I wouldn't take the sword being a reason to not be Arthas.
Oh, I'm guessing all the alternate appearance casters AREN'T meant to be casters that have appeared in fan fiction? Because at the top next to Wanda is definitely Gomez from the Addams Family, and the Addams family was basically present as the main characters in the fic The Siege of Palingrad. I guess what I'm trying to say is, that is exactly what the Gomez in that fic looks like in my headcanon now.
