Heroes for hire!

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 24, 2018, 7:30 AM
    Hello everyone!

    It took me a while but I've finally finished the first of (hopefully at least several) Heroes for hire. A series of World of Warcraft themed adopts I have been planning to paint for quite some time. Right now I have about half a dozen of similar pieces on the drawing board (all the results of the adopt polls from a few months back), and will devote time to them depending on the success of this fine Blood Elven rogue lady (who is still looking for hire ;) ). 

[Adopt] Blood Elf Rogue lady [OPEN] by Galder

    Of course I'm very much open to work on other themes, not only Warcraft characters, but we'll probably need to run a couple more polls on that topic to help me get some bearings. For now, I'd love if you could reply to this journal with some kind of nice setting/fandom/lore/book series that would make for a nice series of adopts along with the main line of Warcraft ones. I suppose most of you are familiar with my style, so suggesting something radically different would do little good, as there are other artists specializing in those genres/fandoms. 

    In the meantime, I'd better return to my usual operations, as there are two contests I've been keeping a close eye on and a plenty of commissions and personal pieces to be finished.

     The watcher counter is also on the rise, we are at 3,350 Watchers! Thank you everyone for joining in and showing your support, it's much appreciated. As promised, we'll be holding another contest once we hit 4000. If you'd like to inquire about the theme, details, or consider donating for the contest, feel free to send me a note or contact me over discord.

Starcall Artist Banner by sylessae

I love to draw all kinds of art, but predominately focus on fantasy work - large portion of it inspired by World of Warcraft! I'm in love with crystals, gemstones and shinies of all kinds, and over the past few months I've been trying to master painting them digitally.

If you would like to support me - I'm really glad whenever you stop by for a chat, comment, give me a favorite or tell your friends about my work :). If you would like to go further, please feel free to donate some points or buy a print! And if you feel generous, you could always buy me a Ko-fi <3

Mr. Spike
    Hello everyone! Today we are going to meet an unusual character. Not a member of the Brigade, however his action had a profound impact on The Brigade and the lives of its members over the past few years. 

    This grizzled old gnome's name is Mister Spike. A commander of his own mixed bounty hunter company - The Spikers. Mr. Spike has entered the Brigade story following a trail of a lonely bounty hunter called simply Phantom, who stalked the Elwynn forest for a wicked demonic mark for several months. A chance encounter with the Brigade's officers lead to the two groups eventually deciding to cooperate on several dangerous projects. 

    Mister Spike is fairly old for his profession, but balances his age with wicked cunning, unusual tactics, a huge load of experience under his belt. Last, but not least, his body has been enhanced with  several arcano-mechanical replacement body parts that give him a much needed edge over his foes. Of late he has taken a back seat and focuses more on training new bounty hunters and acting as a counsel and a decision maker, but occasionally picks up his gun and gets his hands dirty when the stakes are high enough. 

    Mr. Spike has been a fairly good exercise with my digital pastel brushes and some new techniques I'm trying to learn to use recently. Also.. my first gnome and a pretty unusual one at that, so it was a nice challenge. I hope you like the final result!

Militia veteran

    Hello everyone! today we are going to meet Lieutenant Siegfried Finley, an officer of the People’s Militia of Westfall  (later Westfall Brigade). A grizzled veteran who rose through the ranks due to his discipline, command abilities and dedication to protect his homeland. 

   Finley is a survivor of many battles and assassination attempts that have been orchestrated mainly by the Defias Brotherhood. Pragmatic and level headed, he has lead his soldiers into battle times and times again, prevailing against numerous foes. 

   The only recent defeat of his was at the hands of his worgen girlfriend, who left him with more scars and bite marks than all the battles and assassination attempts combined. 

   This piece is a result of one of my quick portrait practice pieces that turned into something more than I initially planned. I have spent a fair amount of time on the formerly 2 hour piece and turned it into a (hopefully) proper portrait ;). I hope you like the final result!

Beat into shape
    Silannah, a twelve thousand year old soldier, was charged with taking Ælithil from a spoiled child with no drive, to a warrior. It was time for him to stop lounging in taverns and learn to defend himself.
    
    After dragging her nephew off to Winterspring, she forced him to strip down to his skivvies in the snow and fight. His lack of training and skill became very apparent as they sparred in the snow.

     Excerpt that inspired this piece:

    “On your feet, bandu! Don’t make me kick you while you’re down.” Fear gave Ælithil surge of strength, and he lurched to his feet. He tried to copy her stance, raising his own fists. Seeing it, she smirked and shook her, saying, “Well, that’s just pathetic.” Then she was on him again. A flurry of kicks and punches had him reeling immediately. She was faster than he would have believed. Stronger too. He tried to keep his guard up, but he could barely see her through the whirling snow and she always found a way through. His defense was useless, and his offense simply did not exist. Soon he was staggering backwards, holding his arms in front of his face, too frightened and overwhelmed to do more. Seeing him back down so quickly sent Silannah into a rage. She unleashed a trio of body blows underneath his guard, then followed that with a punishing kick that hit his right arm with the force of a hammer. He heard the crack of abused bone before he felt anything. Like a felled oak, he toppled into the snow, shrieking and curling into the fetal position as the pain of the broken arm hit him. Silannah, looking disgusted, hauled him onto her shoulders and carried him inside.

Read the full story here as written by Forosuul :

    Hello everyone! Today we are going to take a look at an unusual piece - an illustration I was commissioned to paint for TindomielSilverthorn and Forosuul of a wonderful story written by Forosuul , that is called Beat into shape. The concept of two pale skinned and silver haired elves fighting nearly naked in the frozen, snowy conditions of Winterspring was quite a challenge but the more I got into it, the more I enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy the final result as well :).

    And thank you for commissioning me, it was a pleasure working with you :)

Stonebuck - Jelly opal variant
  Hello everyone! The moment to share the last of the Stonebucks is upon us. Today we are going to take a look at the most unusual in the line of Stonebucks - a Jelly opal gemstone coin that definitely proved to be a challenge, but also quite a treat to paint.  Yuko--Sancommissioned me to work on these beauties quite some time ago, it was a very exciting project and I'm happy that I got to work on something this unusual. 

  Stonebucks, a fictional currency made for the original closed species Gemmadites, Gemmismae, Undadites, Geludites and Ignisdites. These five species live on the planet, Ditee-ath, which is located in the galaxy Lapillusavo; millions of light years away from the Milky Way galaxy. Stonebucks are made out of the gemstones that the five Gem species produce out of their bodies, and are taken to the "Bank of Ditee-ath" to get them shaped and stamped. The Stonebucks are used in the species group to buy trait upgrades, mutations and MYO (make your own) slots. 

    Stonebucks are obtained through prompts, games and sometimes events. If you want to know more about the five Gem species, Ditee-ath, Ditathee language and alphabet, traditions, beliefs, mythology and take part in prompts, games and events, go check out the group! You don't have to own a character of the species to be a member, or take part in prompts, games and events. 

    Gemmadite-Species Gemmadites, Gemmismae, Undadites, Geludites, Ignisdites are original closed species owned and founded by 
Yuko--San, and co-founded by MintyTomato. You are not allowed to make your own without permission.
