    Well, I did indeed get access to a scanner, sadly the scanner was an industrial one normally used for typed papers and whatnot so it uses a bright light and correction software that can really screw with any art. Regardless here is what I got, in my opinion a terrible image compared to the original, but it still gets across the style I work in and whatnot. The biggest issue is how there is virtually no shading left making the characters look flat. And the missing sections just make it even worse, as for the tauren... I didn't really plan him out so he cuts off the paper like that in my book too, so that ones my bad. Come to think of it, my style is probably really hard to scan without a really high rez scanner...

    Creativity is a gift, but through it reality a burden.

    I think the original reason I was raising my hand was to answer your question of "Guess which picture I like best" to which I was going to answer the Draenei one.
    BUT!
    Mr. Blue sky came on my playlist and the lyrics of that song make for a much more interesting question =D
    Why did you hide away for soo long, soooooooo looooooongg.
    makes sense. and you're right, obviously.

    as for your question... i was busy playing single player games?^^
    Careful, we don't want to die!

    *takes a deep breath*
    okay. i think we're good.
    Weird.
    Why doesn't someone blow it up?
    well, that's your job in mass effect 1, more or less^^
    but it's a super powerful, mind controlling battleship with many times the size all other dominant galaxy species' battleships.
    and it's trying to call all the other similar ones from outside the galaxy too, which is bad.
    So umm...
    There was this thread. Asking about nostalgic video game music.
    ...
    My post might have been about 3000 words.
    ...
    :O

    lokks very good from what i can tell, some great details there and i can imagine how much better it probably looks with right shading.
    my only critizism is though, the draenei's head looks more like some kind of stone/golem.

    I like your style. Though the Draenei's face seems a little off ;]
    Great drawing though <3

    Lots of amateurish sketchbook scribbles and a massive load of linking to well-known art. Show me something more interesting, less Draenei softporn, less or preferably no darknest, and some good interesting ART.

    Damn you deviantart and all your users and the childlike giggle-mentality.


    If you haven't already, which I hope you have, go check out sonsofthestorm.com, that's ART.

    Oh, and may we be graced by some of your spectacular masterpieces, great one?
    If you're rude to people who post art because it isn't perfect I'm just going to go ahead and ban you.
    So be nice.

    Sonsofthestorm.com, you mean the website that has art from the professional Blizzard artists? I assume you didn't bother actually reading the thread title. This is a fan art thread. Art done by the offical art department of Blizzard about World of Warcraft doesn't fall under the heading of "Fan art".
    I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.

    Long time reader, first time poster (don't we all start like this at some point?). I've been following this thread for... gosh, I don't remember how long anymore. There's been so much good art here, it's been inspirational! I'm not that good an artist myself, and haven't been actively drawing for months, but I've enjoyed drawing quite a bit in the past, and might just get back into it (seeing that art tablet in the shop may have had a surge of inspiration).
    Unfortunately, until I've made a few posts I won't be able to link the few pictures I had :/.

    Aight, I'll try . Just be gentle... they're a couple years old, made with pen alone (no photoshop or anything, I fail at such stuff ), and they still have the written text in there, which someone might or might not consider bad, but anyway... (Note, all of the pictures are too big to post as they are in the forum, so just a normal link should do the trick.)
    Oh, and I put a space in between the http: and slash because the forum system just auto-converts them to real links, and stops me from posting it...

    My rather unimpressive and messy interpretion of my nightelf druid (now much more bovine than at that time). Practicing angles here somewhat...
    http: //i1107.photobucket.com/albums/h388/Saberion/saberionv1.jpg

    I made this one for my guildie. I'm actually pretty happy how this one turned out, though I suppose it would need polishing.
    http: //i1107.photobucket.com/albums/h388/Saberion/kelmiv1.jpg

    My first "serious" attempt at using crayons to color a picture (... well, to be fair, the first decent attempt at making a colored picture by hand). It's a tauren shaman in tier 10.
    http: //i1107.photobucket.com/albums/h388/Saberion/owashalo.jpg

    Oh, and for the record, each of these was a work of around one to two hour (I know, I am/was slow when doing these *shrug*, but I'm learning! )

    Well, I believe this is on topic, all things considered, but seeing your new signature and avatar, Elyaan, makes me want to stop lying to the guy in the black cloak holding a scythe that keeps asking me where you live.

    Welcome!
    You have arrived at the best thread in the forums. Please enjoy your stay.
    A local Raven will be along shortly to pick up and post your Artwork in the thread. It's a devilishly handsome Raven I might add.

    Ladies and Gentlemen!
    I have here a gift for you all.
    From the beautiful / handsome and impressively artistic Saberion!

    Art of such magnitude you have never seen graces the shining surface of your screen.
    With skill and poise we'd all enjoy [s]he drew us all both Alliance and Horde.
    The pictures sprang to life and cried "To all who see us - don't be surprised!"
    For when a [wo]man of expertice does give the wide world such a piece,
    We can all appreciate and .. have a feast?

    It is said that when Saberion was born, Astraeus - Titan of Art wept with joy for he knew instantly that the future of his realm would continue to thrive!
    Brought to us now are some early pieces of this prodigy - he (or she) that the Gods in Olympus decreed must ascend to immortality for his (or her) considerable talent. These certainly known as classics - and I get the privilege - no, the Honour! Of bestowing them upon you all. The work of Saberion!





    And in Glorious technicolour!


    I really like them ^_^
    I always did like sketches, while the shading and detail on these are of quality. The anatomy / proportions are good too =]
    Plus, the first one reminds me of the Jak and Daxter art style which is always nice!

    And then this week's comic I don't like nearly as much as the last, but getting my proletarian amateurish scribbles out of the way will surely make room for a masterpiece.

    In all seriousness, try to be polite. Okay?

    And don't use absolutes, such as 'all.' It makes you look kinda silly for assuming 'all' people of deviantART, or anything, are a certain way.

    That feels unnecessary everything posted is way better than what your average person could do. So while it may not be up to the godlike standards you wanna bring them down with they are wonderfully made to the rest of us. SoI recomend you play nice or I am sure one of the many mods that hang out here will happily show you the door.

    Yeah, and you know how all those godlike artists working for blizzard that have their "real art" on that website started out? Just like us, doing "amateurish sketchbook scribbles", NO ONE starts out being that good, no one - so please, unless you know how this stuff works (which you obviously don't) please leave us alone and stop making an ass out of yourself.

    I could run most heroics in WotlK in 10 mins with no healer, pulling entire rooms at a time.
    Not really played more than a fortnight in Cata and in that time I managed to get to 85 and gear myself to 2itemlevels below what I needed for heroics, so I wouldn't know if I'm still a God =D
