Ledari, my Draenei Priest from World of Warcraft.

I noticed that I haven't really made a CG of any of my own characters that is complete. Sure, I have a lot of Rhiya and Asvin drawings, but how many of them are FULLY colored and polished? Yeah, none. I have no full CGs of Avedral, my Night Elf Druid that I have played for 3 years. Just lots of scribbles everywhere. *sigh* You could argue this only perpetuates the incompleteness. However, it is a hell of a lot more "complete" than my other doodles.

I started this over two months ago and got it to its currently status after about a month. However, I never thought to post it until now. I still have to make a background for it, so I will upload that if I get to finish it.

Created completely with Photoshop CS.

Time: I dont remember. Perhaps ~15 hours?

The small res and watermark sorta ruins the picture. Meh, I understand wanting to protect your pictures, but whenever everything is smaller with HUGE WATERMARK, it's like... why even post it? Not like we can appreciate the details since you think everyone is thief or something.

The file dimensions are just small, and dA generated a giant watermark to plaster over it. I'll see if I can reupload so it's less obstructive.

I appreciate it, I enjoy the art, but it seems so tiny with the massive watermarks on it. Especially on this piece where it obscures a lot of the finer details.

Wow, this is really pretty! I really like how you did the light effects on her hand, and the light source itself. Very interesting! Not to mention the fact that the lady herself is gorgeous!
hythrain's avatar
That's beautiful. The halo looks kind of like she's using GotN, though I would guess it's suppose to be a particular priest helm. Shame I don't know enough about priest graphics.

I'm curious as to what she's holding.

Oh, and completely random here, are you going to AN this year?
hikari-chan's avatar
Can't afford to go to AN. The flight would cost too much.

And yeah, that's the tier set for priests is a halo.

And she's "holding" a spell ball, like she's casting heal, etc. However, I figured it would make more sense to have the glow held above her hand in this case rather than around her hand.
hythrain's avatar
Bah. I regret not knowing you were there last year now.

*looks up* Ahh, T7. That explains it. I can't recall any of our priests who use that helm having the graphic on.

And the spell looks better that way, I think. Makes it seem more like her palms are controlling it. :)

Oh, I never went. The only con I've attended was Otakon some years back with some of my friends. We all shared 2 tables. I had a lot of fun, but I was really unprepared for it. :(
hythrain's avatar
o.O Wha? I thought you were there last year... weird, my memory must be stupid.
hikari-chan's avatar
Was probably some other artist. ^^;


Ah well, maybe ond day I will go. >.>a
