    Nothing wrong with using the thread for "half-finished roughs". Sometimes its to get critique on a current work and get direction, assist others on their art progression, and sometimes cos we feel it looks pretty good as it is and felt like sharing.

    I'd use thumbnails (or links) if it's five or six different sketches of the same piece. The process is nice to see, but it does take up a rather large amount of space each time.

    I'm not rejoicing. This is why I stopped posting art in the first place. To me, this thread doesn't feel like what it used to. I posted my sketches because people seem interested. I understood your criticism and if I was interested in posting my art in this thread again, I would have kept to probably doing links to sketches instead.

    However, this thread has turned mostly into a "look at my art that I said is wow related and looks nothing like wow art at all." If you have a different opinion than any popular artist around here, you get snarky, passive aggressive remarks.

    On top of that, the art posted most often is very nsfw, and absolutely have no warnings when unsafe work is posted. It's gotten on my nerves, but mods haven't done anything and I just view the thread now for other artists that I actually do enjoy seeing work of, no matter what their talent is.

    Hopefully these links work.



    Some concept art I did for coursework but I guess I can just go ahead and say it was Pandaria inspired. Though it wasn't, it was definitely east-asia inspired.



    Same as above.

    The water below I didn't really make an effect for. I simply made a copy of the mountains and basically everything above an imaginary horizontal line, turned it upside down and used a smudge effect to just smudge it. Basically, I just turned the pic upside down and used a smudge tool on it :>

    Great to see this thread going strong! I was gone for awhile so I couldn't keep up. I really like the landscape art.

    This thread seems to upset a lot of artists..

    I think critique is invaluable, I have never once produced a drawing without input from my friends. I'm glad this thread can be used that way..

    I love the east-asian landscapes, Shadow.
    What did you use to make them?

    I've done an animation test with my Pitlord rig. That rig took a week to make, the animation a day.

    Now I'll be able to use it for my larger 3d animation project, resulting in a 3 minute short film later this year.

    I love those landscapes Shadowbane! The top one reminds me vaguely of the Cata-created Cenarion area in Loch Modan.

    I am lurkin in this thread for quite a long time, have had a break lately and now come back, browsing through the latest posts... First, I love most of the art here. even the crude sketches - as far as they relate to WoW. But I really have a problem with Rachel's art.

    It's great from the perspective of technique. It's great from the perspective of imagination. But it deviates away from WoW (yeah, pun intended) in a way that I find mildly disturbing. It looks to me that the artist takes the theme of WoW and bends it to his own wills and desires so much, that the consistence breaks. Kind of a mild (or not that mild?) abuse of the setting.

    New critters are OK, but, for example, Rachels interpretation of the dreanei is too much for me. (And I have no problems with any kind of deviations from normality, in fact, in my fiction world I am creating as a fantasy writer, I have a bunch of hermaphroditic, asexual and whatsoever characters just to explore different possibilities and mindsets, because it fascinates me). But I would never try to bend the world and setting of WoW to my fantasy that much. It does no credit to the creators of this world where I have been partly at home some years ago.
