Sylvanas' Past by jezebel Sylvanas' Past by jezebel
Warcraft fan art. A portrait of the Banshee Queen Sylvanas. For those that don't know the story, she used to be a high elf general and was killed, made into a mindless banshee slave, and eventually rewarded her corpse to reinhabit. She started to develop an awareness. kicked some ass, and started ruling the Undercity. That's it in a super nutshell - roughly. :D So this is her being haunted by images of her past that she can't quite reach. I also submitted this piece to the Blizzard art contest.

I was talking to a friend about WoW earlier and we deviated onto fan art...some of it is terrifying...some of it breaks rule 42...but I told him that one of my favorite fanart pieces was THIS ONE.  It took me awhile to find it, and he was impressed with it, too.  "She looks pissed.  Like...boss pissed.  I wouldn't tank her."

Love it.

Reminds me of a scene in Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" where Belle enters the West Wing and finds a shredded portrait of the Beast's former shape. 

There was probably a time when Sylvanas avoided her reflection out of denial and shame.

Beautifully done.

This is really awesome. She's one of my favorite characters, and one of the main reasons I would dearly love to kill Arthas. I think shes more or less a good person still, despite what was done to here. The undead in general are evil bastards tho =P

I really love this picture. It's so hard to find good art of her.

This is one of the most beautiful WoW fanart pieces I've seen. The detail of Sylvanas as a ranger in the broken mirror - It's lovely. I imagine Sylvanas to be very bitter.

Just wanted to say that out of all the WoW leaders and thier stories, Sylvanas' is the one that I loved the most (Thrall being 2nd). I have been browsing the web for months now trying to find the best Sylvanas fan made image, and this for sure is in my top5!

Great job, and would love to see more.
