“Many months have passed since the cataclysmic Battle of Mount Hyjal, where the demonic Burning Legion was banished from Azeroth forever. But now, a mysterious energy rift within the mountains of Kalimdor propels three former warriors into the distant past -- a time long before orcs, humans or even high elves roamed the land. A time when the Dark Titan Sargeras, and his demon pawns persuaded Queen Azshara and her Highborne to cleanse Azeroth of its lesser races. A time when the Dragon Aspects were at the height of their power -- unaware that one of their own would soon usher in an age of darkness that would engulf the world of...War Craft”

holy crap, this is the world of... WoW? damn, when you look at it piece by piece you really take in all the details you put into it! Never was good at pc games, but rather enjoy the stories behind the legends :)

Muy bueno pero como que te faltaron los taurens, ellos ayudaron al bando de Malfurion en la guerra de los ancestros!

This is my favorite scene/storyboard ever. I don't think I've seen any art better than this since Picasso! Seriously, I think it is on par with the famous painters we've all been educated about.

I love this style. It sort of has a Mayan element to it. very cool

Back when the Azeroth was new.
Azeroth was down on its luck
And everywhere gigantic brutes
called elementals ran amok

It was a nasty place
There was a mess
whereever you stepped
Where chaos reigned and
earthquakes and volcanoes never slept

And then along came Aman'Thul
He hurled his thunderbolt
He zapped
Locked those suckers in a vault
They're trapped
And on his own stopped
chaos in its tracks
And that's the gospel truth
The guy was too type A to just relax

And that's the world's first dish
Aman'Thul tamed the globe
while still in his youth
Though, honey, it may seem imposs'ble
That's the gospel truth

On Heaven life was neat and
Smooth as sweet vermough
Though, honey, it may seem imposs'ble
That's the gospel truth

cool but i didnt think there were humans back then and were did the orc come from
Armakus's avatar
It's from one of the books they released. Rhonin (a human) and Broxigar (an orc) go back in time to fight the battle in an alternate fashion. That's about as simply as I can put it...

I simply love it 0.0. It's...awesome, I'm speechless

Whenever I see these murals of yours, I hear an epic orchestra playing with some Ominous Latin Chanting in the background. Love these and the ideas behind them so much! Gonna go through your gallery and favorite them all. ;D
