I love you guys <3
Two new Worgen related pieces for some books coming, contracted through Arsenal21, not really fan art but just awesome anyway.
I prefer the second one myself.
Now if you'll excuse me I haft to go try my hand at a Worgen
Creativity is a gift, but through it reality a burden.
Okay so I just found something I wrote a few months back, one night after downing LK. Its a bit different as far as fan art goes, but I think its kind of cool so I guess I'll share it. Also, I thinks it's the shortest fan-fiction ever written.
When she was young, Katelyn Menethil came across a disheveled grave, taking notice that it bore her family name. Curiosity took grasp of her mind, and she began to clear from it several lifetimes of growth and disrepair. She could make out but one word from the stone. Arthas. She had never heard the name before, but she felt a deep pity for this man from the distant past. Not a soul had visited this grave for centuries, and surely he did not deserve to be so alone. From that day forth, Katelyn took flowers to the stone every Sunday. She would sometimes try to speak to Arthas, telling him of her loves, her dreams, her triumphs, and her tragedies. For a lifetime she did this, so that he would at least have one friend, in a world that had long forgotten him. She often imagined Arthas' life, wondering if he had been an adventurous explorer, sailing unknown seas for treasure or glory. Or perhaps a valiant knight, saving maidens from danger and battling fearsome dragons. Still, she supposed that he was likely just an ordinary man, trying to make the best life that he could for himself and his family. A thousand lives Arthas lived in her mind, yet never did she suspect that all of Azeroth once trembled, at the wrath of the Lich King.
The ending (plus the rest of it) was really bad, I know, but I felt like it belonged somewhere other than on a piece of paper in my desk drawer.

I like, it would be too silly if Arthus where just a ruler of the dead, what really makes me connect is the knowledge that he had been a prince, to be the king was his destiny and then he went on a journey from paladin to the Lich King. The tale does have sorrow and Arthus was not himself a trull bad person, its this underlying sorrow that really help your story in my opinion.

does photo shop count? i can't draw and thats the only media i use when it comes to wow
sketch during class, drawing all over my homework. >_> don't mind the creeper just me messing around with my friends. lol why that's a very nice every thing you've got there.
work in progress, hands are a little small, hopefully i can fix it. XD shity camera is shity. :P
Yay I finally have enough posts to put up images
Most recent shenanigans
It's mostly due to a lot of practice, but it also runs in the family. Both my mother and her father were artists. My grandfather did mechanical planning drawings and my mother did a lot of illustrative work. I'm in between, since I do concepts and illustration.
Anyways, I was gone longer than I meant to be, since after I had posted that last batch of pictures I tripped and fell down the stairs. Not just a couple steps, the whole stair case unfortunately, and landed on my left side, bruising a couple of ribs and my hip. And since falling down tends to wrench all of your muscles no matter what side you fall on my whole body ended up hurting. The bruise on my hip finally disappeared a couple of days ago, and the bumps on my ribs have gone down. Luckily my left hand (the one I use) escaped a painful fate, but somehow I managed to strain a couple of my fingers on my right hand. It must have happened when I tried to grab onto the banister.
After all that I was finally able to get down to work and finish off some art that was laying around.
Well, just goes to show that life doesn't stop for anyone. :P
Also, the girl that I mentioned earlier, that copied Glowei's female worgen picture, was told off by someone, but then said that she didn't trace, but that she copied it. FFS, I wish people would realize that just because you didn't trace doesn't mean you didn't steal it...goodness. Anyways, she ended up favouriting one of my pieces...really awkward. I hate it when thieves fave my stuff. :/
This will forever be in development hell.
This is actually a much bigger picture depicting a cliche forbidden romance between a Draenei concubine and a Dreadlord, but then I got bored of it and other projects came up. You can even see all the little swatches of colour I was using.
I decided to upload her since she looks so pretty.
(I know that not all the anatomy is perfect, but I'm not going to go back and fix it at this rate)
She's on top of his chest showin' off, and that purple stripe cutting across her is what would've been the tip of his tail gently grazing her.
Just a 'for fun' painting of 'Stud', (who's species I made up for Argus) who is the family pet of one of my Draenei characters. Like most males of any species, he has a bit of a one track mind.
And loves panties, especially chewing the crotches out of them.
A quick painting of a possible Emerald Dream environment that I did about a week ago. I took some inspiration from screenshots of what currently exists of the Emerald Dream.
The little animal (that's actually not so little, maybe about the length of a Buick enclave) at the bottom was referenced from different types of gorgonops, and her colouration was referenced from various guppies.
*The reason the animal is sort of cell shaded is because I was going for a 'Heavy Metal (1981)' look: painted background, 'rotoscope animated' figure.
A little while ago I started doing wildlife concepts for the Draenei home planet, Argus, and recently decided to delve a little into the Draenei themselves. I drew a quick map and chose to have physical and cultural differences between those of the North and those of the South.
Anyways, this Northern lady is the mother of Tullgin, who will hopefully have a proper picture up soon.
Northern Draenei (Compared to Southern):
*Shorter but more rotund
*More fat than muscle
*Farming, trading are common. Overall more relaxed than Southerners in terms of jobs.
*Females are promiscuous, but do mate for life once they've found someone suitable
*Skin and hair is lighter
*Ears are smaller
*Horns and tails are smaller and usually lack plating and barbs that Southerners have
*Love (familial, friendly, sexual) makes up most of their culture
*Live in family groups. Rare to find solitary Northerners
*Homosexuality and intersex/feminized males are common and accepted
A playful little Dryad.
If you're okay with a little genitalia, then I would recommend looking at and/or faving the original, which can be found in my deviantART gallery, since this version is censored rather crappily and doesn't look as nice and natural.
More Argus critters!
(Please note: these are not to scale)
1. A small carnivore that has the nasty habit of hiding inside of clothes to keep warm, even if their already on the person.
2. A plated wolverine-like carnivore. Has a bad attitude.
3. A pygmy hippo-like omnivore that is extremely friendly and cuddly. They make great pets
4. A cattle-like herbivore that is hunted for its meat and hide.
5. The largest land predator on Argus. Usually peaceful if left alone, but if vexed it becomes an unstoppable killing machine. They are used in the military.
6. A small armoured herbivore, similar to a mouse deer/chevrotain. Though small, its stinger packs a punch.
7. A cave dwelling carnivore. Extremely dangerous. Has a liking for Draenei flesh. Draenei that go into the caves to mine are usually in groups and carry heavy weaponry for protection.
A worgen drag queen with his little pug.
(I can definitely see Gilneas being one of the more liberal/feminist nations)
Just a really quick sketch that I did the other day.
Things that have a red 'x' aren't necessarily 'bad' or 'wrong,' but if you are drawing a realistic Draenei (or anything digitigrade) they're not really preferable and will take away from the realism.

I love the drag queen with the pug and the critters of Argus.
Here's three I did during math class a few years ago, I had a shaman orc that was way better than these but I can't find it....QQ
You must return here with a shrubbery or else you will never pass through this wood...alive. One that looks nice. And not too expensive.
