Death Knight

well .... she's finished =)

in this one I decided to change a bit .. focus more on her face than anything, instead of making a full scene with a lot of things going on ...

i have to say it broke my heart a bit to blur the hand/arm.

I knew i was going to do it, to give that camera focus feeling, but i couldnt help it to detail a lot .. and well, most of it ended up lost lol ..

The mace i didnt want to create anything too fancy since it's just "there" while the focus is on her .. so i just made something practical to crush people.

Initially she had a shoulder .. but i decided to get rid of it and explore the neck/shoulder area .. and i think it turned out much better .. it was one of those moments that you are randomly turning off layers to change one thing or another .. and i was like "oh shit .. it looks much better this way!" ..

anyway .. hope you guys enjoy it .. took a small break from drawing monsters and everything ... and its good to get back to drawing a female form .. so here it is .. a ginger draenei =o

oh, she's obviously frost lol

ps. Before anyone comes rioting with pitchforks, i removed the face tentacles. I DON'T like them in the original design, and hell, it's my art =) .. so just like i dont make NE's with those ridiculous huge pointy eyebrows, i dont make face tentacles on draenei. So yes, it was intentional.

I really love this picture! Since I play a Draenei Frost DK in WoW I'd like to ask if it's ok by you for me using her as my profile picture in my guild's forum? Of course I'll mention you & put a link to this beauty over here in my signature. ;)

Not gonna lie, that is the kind of expression (or lack there of) that I expect from a Death Knight. Simply fantastic.
