There are a few nitpicky things to finish on this, such as detailing out the rocks/mountains a bit more, but I am mostly happy with how this one came out and I want to save the "finished" version for the printed portfolio. It's the second boss from my mock WoW dungeon project. Most of the design is based off of lore.

This would be Xavius resurrected as a servant of Azshara, pulled out of the Emerald Nightmare.

Here's a link to the WoWwiki article on Xavius: [link] It might explain why he bears some resemblance to Illidan. He also began as a Night Elf and became the first satyr.

Xavius is (c) Blizzard Entertainment.

Edit: Oh... wow. I logged on and didn't know why I suddenly had new favs and comments, and then suddenly noticed the DD. A huge, huge, huge thanks to Aura-Moon and StormPenguin. I am incredibly humbled by such kind and generous words.

This is fantastic. I was just doing the "The Demon Prince" quest and I decided to look up Xavius. After reading about him I thought that a lot of the art wasn't exactly in-line with his description. This on the other hand is exactly how I pictured him. You blew it away. Awesome!

He's come a long way from being a tree. But what a loser, though, to be killed thrice by the same guy. I mean, really, you think he might have learned something from his past failures.
