fall of Arthas by breath-art fall of Arthas by breath-art
My son,
The day you were borned,
The very forest of Lorderan whellispered the name:
My child,
I watch u with pride, as you grow into a weapon of righteousness.
Remember, Our land has always ruled with wisdom and strength.
And i know,
You would show restraint, when you exercising your great power.
But the truest victory my son,
Is stiring hearts of your people.
I tell you this
For when my days have come to an end,
You, Shall be king.

as someone's comment in last work,it is hoped to be a murel about Arthas the lich king~~~and there is the one.
the best part of Wow game in character design I think.

hope you like it.more comments welcomed

Beautiful. So much details and symbolism!

Breathtaking I remember playing warcraft 3 and how he fell, he loved his people so much he was willing to do anything no matter the cost to his soul and heart. A tragedy even Shakespeare would applaud. You truly captured how sad and tragic his fall was amazing detail and colors. Amazing work keep it up!Meow :3

There are no words to say how epic this is.

Deep and great.

You know, I find Arthas's story a bit sad. He had such potential in his life, but he then became one of the most evilest beings on Azeroth
jimboblarry42 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I love this work of art. All the little subtleties added showing Arthas' descent make this piece just that much more enjoyable. I would like to ask though, I'm not sure of the significance of the dagger at the bottom. I see (correct me if I'm wrong) Shadowmourne, Halion, Paladin Arthas' Hammer (I forget the proper name if there is one), King Terenas' Crown, Sylvanas' bow, and then...?

That's the legendary rubeblade Felo'Merlon, wich belonged to the father of Kael'Thas before he became evil

My love in this epic piece, is Sindragosa. Arthas story is kind of over-rated, but this drawing is amazing. Great job :clap:

Would be for personal use only of course :)

Above the left wing of the frostwyrm his cape turns from blue to purple to hint his transformation from paladin to death-knight(genius btw) but what are those mouths demons or souls?

This totally illustrates his rise and fall, and then rise again as the Lich King. Awesome job, I could totally see this in a window in Azeroth or something. :)

One more thing tho... The last tooth of the skull dragon from the left side is white unlike the creamy others.

This mosaic-like magnificence is beyond the words of mortal men or their attempts to describe its' beauty.

Cant tell if thats Jaina or Lux up there...
elvenfae Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Arthas, you bastard! What have you done?
I will never forget Jaina's crazy lecture to him in WoTLk and the book by Christie Golden.
Excellent series, well done!! It is some of the best fan art i've seen to date.
Very unique style of painting, I like it though.

Arthas history captured my heart in WC3.
