High Priestess of Elune

I wanted to upload a larger file size of this artwork, but deviantART won't seem to let me despite the fact that I HAVE uploaded the intended size in the past. *shrug* Oh well, you'll just have to look at all the detail pictures to really see what is going on with this piece. BUT back to the topic at hand...

First off, let me just say this: no I do not play World of Warcraft. However, when people do so many artworks of the world and characters that draw me in purely by the designs, I simply cannot resist from doing one myself. The character that I have always been drawn to is Tyrande Whisperwind, the High Priestess of Elune. I have even gone so far as to research the character's biography and personality traits... I quite adore her.

For the record, I created every piece of jewellery and "armor" from scratch (though the torso piece doesn't really seem like armor so I call it an "embellishment" instead). I drew the torso piece first before building it from a metal texture and then adding gemstones to it. The circlet around her head was easier as it was just a moon and some chains... the earrings were also made from scratch with the same texture as the torso piece. Sadly when it came to the colour of the dress, I had to take a liberty as I could not make it too pale or even close to white otherwise the metalwork would be lost on it, so I made it a pale blue instead... and yes it has long sleeves, rather than no sleeves, but that was because I couldn't ignore the stock photo of the model I used, it was too gorgeous to ignore.

I didn't have to draw much actually, but alot of work did go into it either way. Still, I'm pretty damn proud of this piece, to be honest. :XD:
My muse certainly made a bang when it came back, didn't it? :D haha

I always have fun doing artworks (especially my mixed media pieces). It's a time when I'm at my happiest.
