    There needs to be more tank art floating around out there.

    I understand that it's normally easier to apply the "cool" factor to a bad-ass DPS type, but tanking portraits true intensity and passion! (Come to think of it, there aren't many tanks in Lore either. If they're not Mages, normally they've got a 2hander of some kind strapped to their backs. Hrm.)
    Listen kiddos, trust Handsome Jack. You want every part of this insanity.

    The second one is quite nice, I especially like the lighting style. In the first one however her face looks kinda like a males.
    Creativity is a gift, but through it reality a burden.

    Here's what I'm currently working on. Its actually been one of the most frustrating sketches I've done, mostly because I wanted to do a lot of things beyond my skill level that didn't really make the cut...
    Anyway, I'm coloring it in PS this time so it will be a few day before its done. I used my old scanner for this so excuse the low image quality

    I know what you mean about aiming for something out of your league, I do that every time, however its that constant strive that allows me to get better. Mind you I still mess up my faces and proportions the majority of the time and need to redo them, they are the things that this technique of learning has not worked to well with.

    That's how I learned lol, it was difficult, shooting for the stars and missing by miles at a time... But it was good for me, pushing yourself beyond what you think you are capable of can be very rewarding.. I haven't done any WoW related stuff in a while though...

    In a little under 5 months teaching myself, I went from doing stuff as poorly as this
    http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/i/20...ty-d31e836.png

    to this (still not "awesome" or "amazing" but a VAST improvement over those that came before it)
    http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/i/20...ty-d3br3is.png


    Edit: WOW I just realized how big this thread has gotten... My god I remember when it's postcount was in the 100's, now its 10528!

    /tear... they grow up so fast!

    To your credit, you seem to have a firm grasp of how shadows and lighting works. Those are still alien concepts to me.
    Other than that, I think Jarvan is actually a white guy. Noticed that yours was a little indian looking =P

    oh and wb Kalyyn!
    You're going to have to explain wb to me. I've only ever seen that in trade chat before, and I'll assume you aren't trying to buy me (probably a bad assumption)

    wtb = want to buy
    wb = welcome back

    and i was refering to your ban btw (= by the way xD)

    Haha, thank you, and his face is almost entirely in shadow, that's why it's kinda dark

    No, not a repost, that one was relatively recent, GENZOMAN only made that maybe a month or two ago, cant link it but you can find him on Deviant art, great artist, Blizzard has contracted him more than once.
