    I was thinking of drawing a piece just for this. My first thought was something Pandas. I'd like to know what everyone would like to see in a panda picture. Should I attempt a female design or keep it male? Monk or something different? Let me know, I'll be drawing the image hopefully the end of this week if not sooner.

    Male probably, if it were me I'd try and make it as badass and un-adorable as possible lol. Crushing a goblin/gnome with a keg is a plus!

    I found this blog today:
    http://characterdesignnotes.blogspot.com/

    It's not WoW related, but it's art related, and it's an excellent resource for character and creature design.

    If you google "nal's pudding" you'll probably find more of his/her work. Serious NSFW issues with some of the websites the stuff is posted on, though.

    @Rachel: Just looking through the last few pages, I ADORE your work. I still struggle to make my dry art ideas into digital pieces, and I'm always amazed at how some people just manage to "paint" digitally. I hope to learn that technique one day.

    I'm currently working on this, just a lineart at the moment of me and my two best buddies on this game.

    Never feel bad about your art. I know it's hard not to, and we all have our bad days where all we can think is "oh god, I'm horrible compared to so and so." Resist it, remember that all of those great artists used to be beginners as well, and they probably had the same feelings. It's okay to compare yourself, and you should always critique your own work, but don't get sucked in to feeling bad about it. Just remember, an artist never stops learning and improving. Even when you're a professional, there's always something else new to know.

    The best thing you can do right now is to observe and practice. Lots and lots of practice.
    Use references, study the body, learn how it's constructed.
    Using yourself as a reference is also good, since it's in 3D! Feel your muscles, flex them. What kind of lines beneath your skin do you see? Look at your hands, study the joints and lines. So on and so forth.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback <3.

    This hold SO MUCH TRUTH. I started doodling in 5th grade, that was about 11 or 12 years ago. I drew nonstop until a few years ago and now art is just a side hobby that I try to constantly improve on and learn new techniques in. Keep practicing and cherish everything that you make. No one is born with the ability to paint masterpieces, it's a long practiced ordeal. Remember that there are people out there that can't move past stick figures, and would love to have the talent that you do.

    Just encountered, well..I'll just call them an art thief.

    They took a professional photograph, edited the eye colour, then claimed it as their FIRST digital painting.
    I made so many points and proved them so wrong that eventually they ignored me completely.

    It's not even FUNNY how angry I am right now.

    And the best thing is, they got pissed off at me for pointing this out - I said that if they truly did paint it, they should provide proof, because I would certainly be very, very sorry and shocked then.
    But, funnily enough, they provided no proof. (':

    And for your own opinion, here is the photograph they apparently 'painted':

    That's a colorization. I got paid to do them while working for Candid Color as a digital retoucher for Glamour Shots and Party Pics. It takes about 30 seconds at most to do a standard eye colorization.

    Ah, my apologies.
    But just to clarify, the girl claimed she had painted the entire photo, not just coloured the eyes.

    I didn't mean to imply you were in error. Just agreeing it's not a painting, other than you use a wacom to either select the eyes or erase them with a black and white layer over a color layer, or using channels.
