Commission Illustration of the lovely Miyaani and Kanatta. A Dranei and Troll... forbidden love! It's lovely, I think... hehe. Two best looking races... mmm.

I had experiemented with a different coloring style, which actually, ruined me... hehehe. It's pretty much lineless except for the guidelines I originally used from the lineart to figure out the basic shapes. Lots, and LOTS of paitence went into this.

Awww that's so cute :meow:
The first time I realized trolls only have 3 fingers was when my friend said he wished he could stick his middle finger up at this Ally named Tao but he only has 3 fingers... I didn't believe him till I looked it up on Google

i caught a glimps(sp?) of this picture yesterday and couldn't get it out of my mind. Before I knew it , i had come up with a story and everything. These are two of my favorite races and i just love the idea of forbidden love. You've just reminded me of how much of a hopeless romantice I can be.

Dude, you said it all.

Curious couple.. seeing that trolls hate everyone.
Found interesting how you drew his face o.o I usually picture Trolls looking more... pissed... lol

And you serious? Draenei (barf) and Troll the best looking?
I hate Daeneis... (Horde til I die >8D but I do dislike them for Lore-wise reasons... =_= ) Trolls are ok... but I honestly prefer an Orc. Maybe even a Tauren if the mood is right... XD

Well, I never hinted that I wanted a discussion over what races in WoW were the best.
I NEVER say to people: "ALLIANCE RULEZ!" or "FOR THE HORDE!"
It's petty.
And I don't appreciate such comments directed at me either.
I personally play BOTH races, and I love them both.
[I only seriously dislike Nightelves and Gnomes with a deep... seething passion...]

"how you drew his face"
Well, as I said in the comment it's a commission - and the commissioneer requested as such. If it's supposed to be a "forbidden love" illustration, I didn't want to draw the Kanatta looking all... pissed. Hehe.
Namri-chan Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2008
I didn't mean to sound.... rude. I do admit proudly to play Horde. Aliance bores me to no end... ^^; So I apologize if I was rude in some way ._.
I don't hate Gnomes, they can be annoying, thou XD! And I guess Nightelves are ok... Except Malfurion. He's a badass. :P

Yes, I did read it. And as for a Troll, I guess one can only expect so much from people who are always frowning and glaring. ^^; It's a challenge for me to draw a troll at all. To actually make him look serene like that is pretty nifty.
By the by, I forgot to mention: I love the high amount and clarity of details. I've tried that style before, and it is a royal pain. >.<

I see now.. that's a very good piece of work. Alas, their love is not meant to be. :3
Romulo & Julia. ;) I see what you mean about working the shadow. Yet, you still manage to make all the detals pop n' such. :3
DeactivatimusPrime Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2008
The glowy eyes. They are full of awesome. :DDD
nabichan Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2008
I can tell you put a lot of work into this, and it shows. It's a shame that you no longer want to work in this style, but its understandable. I love how soft everything looks.
Vinki-arts Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2008

selona Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2008
8D You have no idea how much I love this image. It's amazing. I was bowled over when Karma showed it to me X3 I still squeak over it every time I come across it :D

Outstanding job, really ^__^
karniz Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
speaking of Karma... have you heard from him recently? He has another commission pending through me, and he hasn't replied to my e-mails yet [of him recieving the final zip, and the proofs on the next art...] Nyuu...
::huggles to death::
selona Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2008
Ou, yeah. I've been keeping in touch with her XD She showed me the previews, and I thought she'd gotten back to you already?

I'll give her a quick poke for you when I see her next and let her know, maybe the intarwebz devoured it.

... Hey D: *spirit rezes and huggles back* 8b heehe

Auuuu~~ My two favorite races in the preferred gender. ;0;!! And such FSCKING gorgeous painting. I hope you'll do more paintings like this in the future. Those colors are amazing.
karniz Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I hope you'll do more paintings like this in the future.
Egads... No! hahahah! I mean... it DOES look really nice... but I HATE working on an image, or one particular part of the image, for longer than it takes the entire coloring process in another style... ohohoho.
Maybe once I get a bit faster, then I might achieve it again.. but for now - this method is DEAD to me! hehehe. /hugs
