So it's been a while since I've uploaded anything and this is why. I have been working on this scultpure for far too long!
This is my draenei priest Lourdes, it's a kind of a tribute/farewell piece as I haven't played WoW for quite some time. It's also the first time I've tried a humanoid figure and clothing and man, did I learn a lot! I'm just glad it's done now. Phew.
The outfit is kind of based on the Raiments of the Divine, a robe I was after for ages and never got Typical. The staff is just a green one from somewhere in the game. I was going to make Benediction but I figured I had enough on my plate already.
Made from Super Sculpey and Sculpey Firm, with weak areas reinforced with Apoxie Sculpt. Painted with acrylics.
"Any human eyes witnessing the twisted form of that city soon wished they hadn't when they saw the horrors within..."
I really enjoyed painting this epic scene showing the underground city and its denizens.
I chose a low a horizon line and 3-point perspective to help with the impression of awesome scale. The eye is drawn to the centre by the 'train track' cavern walls which contrast with the strong central vertical silhouetted by the central light.
The palette is fairly desaturated against the glowing green lichen, which helps give depth and lead the gaze around.

I had great fun imagining the Illithid's (mind flayer) lair, aan his dungeon plan laid out before him. The perspective adds drama and interest, whilst the saturated light sources pull the eye around the image.
This painting was also jury selected for inclusion in Spectrum 19.
