Two questions:

Could mage/wizard be in half human-half animal form? Or animal with, for example: human  head, or arm, or anything?

Could it be some mythical or imaginary creature? Mythical like : mintaur,  centaur, cerberus, phoenix ? Imaginary like : predator, alien.

Answers:

1) Yes, I think you CAN draw an animal in a humanoid form ;) - I found this, it should be a good example: http://greywolf.critter.net/images/ironclaw/standups/mage-07.gif

But not human head. Draw an animal, not human with tiger tail ;)


2) Draw only real animals ;)

I was thinking of a Wizard Bear casting a Hooded Cape spell.

Or a spell with a hooded cape.

So in other words pixel an animal?
If the mage is in animal form then how will its appearance differ from that of the animal whose form it wears?

I did once, but I'd prefer not to talk about it.

Anyway it is later emphasized that it must be a real animal, and while I am not expert on bears, I doubt a real bear (or the vast majority of animals for that matter) would have the manual dexterity to hold a wand.

O_o? Sooooo.... make an animal, a real animal and not mythological, but in human form?



Technically speaking the moment they stand on two feet and wear human clothes they are no longer real animals.

I'm a little confused. So let's say I make a bull standing upright. Does that count as a bull standing up or does that count as a minotaur (which is a mythological creature)?

Based on your example and your explanation I created this [WIP]:

 

It's the ratmen death mage (something about Warhammer Skaven race, but in fact they cannot use magic). Need to polish this a little bit more.

2Greenrave:

You can draw it in human form, but it isn´t needed.

Yes, standing bull is minotaur, but counts as a bull =) - but for example cerberus has got three heads. So if you want to draw dog mage/wizard, you can use only one head =P .. eh .. so, you must use base from real animal ;) Do you understand ? =)

2Drakael: Yes, you got it ;) - nice =)

usually, drawing your girlfriend as a "witch" would cause some serious problems,
 
and this wasn't the exeption.
