Arthas Menethil, Crown Prince of Lordaeron and Knight of the Silver Hand, was the son of King Terenas Menethil II and heir to the throne. He was trained as a paladin.

Despite his promising beginnings, Arthas became one of the most powerful and evil beings Azeroth would ever know. Taking up the cursed runeblade Frostmourne, he became a death knight, led the Scourge in destroying Lordaeron, and became the Lich King.

Yet, no king rules forever. The legendary Lich King finally met his ends in the hands of the Argent Crusader and the Knights of the Ebon Blade.

Desperately trying to reach out to the artist for a submission.

Willing to pay for someone to work on it, adding landscape on right and left side, to make it a 5760x1080 res image. No crop or image cut, and no los of quality. I want the same image, but in 5760x1080. (so, by adding landscape on right and left side)

Feels free to PM me if you feels up for the work. (again, willing to pay)

I have a confession, friend. I stole this pose and a good deal of the costume design in drawing a piece of my own. But imitation is the highest form of flattery, no? Sorry. Forgive my lack of originality.Forgive me! That being said, this piece is amazing! Well done!

Why did they have to kill him.
He was a great character.
And why did they have to do it in world of warcraft...
I want them to make a warcraft 4 :c
