This is a commission by DeviantArt for Blizzard I have been painting over the last weeks. I was asked to paint an Undead Mage from World of Warcraft in their order Hall.
When I got this commission I felt really excited. It had always been my dream to paint for Blizzard, so having the honor to portray one of the WOW classes was truly amazing. It was a challenge having to paint all the magic glow colors mixed with the undead cold skin tones and put it all together, but I love painting light and color
I got really nervous at some stages, especially at the beginning. When starting a painting, I spend a lot of time deciding the composition, pose and color scheme, since this will define the overall mood. I eventually went with a low-angle shot and I tried to push the twisting of the body to increase motion of the whole painting. It was a great journey all the way and I'm quite happy with how it turned out, so I hope you guys like it!

It makes me feel deeply peaceful with a welling yolk of excitement.
The colors looks really cool, I can't even really understand your painting process looking at it
It's so vivid and glowing
It just keeps popping up, as I go through my watchlist, and I keep removing it daily.
I feel really trolled right now. Feels like either devart is seriously bugging or somebody paid for it to pop up all the time - kinda.
And if I havnt commented on the pic itself yet: I faved it cuz like it ... colors, execution, perspective... all of it!
Thanks for the nice words though!
