Warcraft! Again !

Damn it feels so great to see progress on my huge project about the warcraft universe, and especially Lordaeron!

This is just a "WIP" for a Lordaeron footman.
This is not exactly the look I wanted for a heavy swordsman, but still it's NEAR.

Little story about this picture :
This is part of an improvised shoot for the Blizzard FanArt Section at GamesCom.
I have hurried to organize this, and shot 3 Costumes... So, there are two more to come ;)

So, as I've been at GamesCom, I've seen that...this picture has been part of the selection for the FanArt section o/
And, HUGE reward... Samwise Didier himself (Blizzard Art Director) chose the fanarts... =D

Another one has been chosen by Samwise :

It was really so great to see that Samwise liked my work T_T *_*

To see pics as proof go on Facebook !

Thanks !
In fact it's easy, even easyer... especially if you wanna moove in it x)
You can have super buff shoulder and moove in it, but this can only came from special designs.. And so far Wow don't apply them, or at least no cosplayer does x)
Feel free to come back ;) More warcraft is planned for next Spring, perhaps even Arthas as paladin ;)

Hey man, I just noticed your stance. Have you trained HEMA, because that's a very proper guard you're standing in?

And i try to use this knowledge in the different universe I work on ;)

You're living the dream life, amigo! I had a hunch only a person who knows a thing or two about armed combat would be into the more grounded and realistic armor and weapons, that you showcase here. Keep on being awesome! :D

The armor looks well crafted for this pic.  But don't know if it can be used as real armor.

I've just edited it.; and it's a real armor, it can endure hits and protect you during a fight =)
Armor have to be protective, unless.; they are not armor, but costume accesories.

Oh its the real stuff?  Did not expect that, I thought it was kind of a good looking cosplay.  Alot of them around.  So is this armor fairly light weight for armor, or is it  a heavier set?  Or do you know how much it weighs?

Armore are never too heavy, people just lake training ^^
I haven't take a look on the total weight but hey... That's my job to fight in armor so x)
The armor alone could be around the... 10-15 kg ? Just thinking, I'm not sure at all... Just sure about the Shield weight x) (informations in the concerned Deviation)

I have such mixed feelings about the story of Arthas Menethil. He was just trying to save his people... but he WAS a dick. Reading the book gave me a much stronger connection to all of the Northrend story and the Undead starting zones.

A dick?
XD I don't hink so, but wel ldepend on POV I guess...
I prefer to see people act than making long speaches, and spend so much time in just speaking about thigns that they have to do, or wich have to be done..
He decide, he act... This is far better.
Well, this is my POV.
And I really like a lot this character... ^^
