Edit: Wow! Thank you SO much for the honor of receiving a Daily Deviation for this piece! I put a lot of love into it, so it feels awesome being able to share it with you guys! <3

This is (yet another) approach to the Protection warrior worgen piece I was working on a few months ago. I consider this a more dynamic, "TCG"-style approach to the piece.

This isn't any character in particular, just a fan art (Protection warrior worgen) in the Warcraft style. This is the first time I've tried my hand at drawing a worgen as well. :)

The motivation behind this was the idea that if raids and such played out in a more realistic sense, it would actually be the tank(s) that would be busy protecting their peers. And, well, if you fight dragons, it might look a bit like this. ;)

The original file is 8004 x 5661. It was digitally painted entirely in Photoshop CS3 and CS5.

Click for Full View (the default view's contrast is poor).

Fan Art.

I also wanted to give major shout-outs to not only to the folks on DA that have offered some incredibly helpful critiques on this piece, but also to Grace Liu, John Polidora, Peet Cooper, Paul Richards, Gino Whitehall, and others all of whom helped me strengthen it about ten times over.

Also thanks to those of you that chatted with me on my LiveStream and kept me company on this piece over some very strange hours, including :iconizrien: , :iconcrocodiledreams: , :iconphantom42:, :iconsolusauroraborealis: , and :iconcarryn: , just to name a few. You guys rock. :)
