My first WoW-inspired piece for Patreon! This was really fun to paint, even if I went about it in the most complex, convoluted way possible by deciding to make it a flat color piece then changing my mind halfway through and then changing my mind again two thirds of the way in.

I also watched a lot of WoW lore videos while painting this. I still understand nothing.

  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I have been waiting for a Warcraft piece for a long time.  I was not disappointed.

Jaina is such a complicated character, and a lot of that is down to the writing of her, but you have done such a good job here - she looks angry but focused, without any hysterics.  As someone who feels there is no one stronger than a broken woman who has rebuilt herself, I appreciate that.

The new music video was an awesome thing to behold! A wonderful depiction of a wonderful character in a wonderful stage of character progression.

I love it! Especially the hair--as always. It lends itself particularly well to your style too, I think. :D

Well it took me about 10 Hours to get a grasp at the basic events and who wants to kill whom ...
WoW Lore is as hard as following Game of Thrones if youve skipped the first few seasons xD
Reading the books helps a lot, at least thats what I was tpld, but since I thought I only needed a little background on bloodelves for a project of mine which turned out to be far too less and already more complexe than expected I still didnt get the books ...

And then teres that point that many lore videos out there and even the wiki tend to have tiny to small mistakes. You really need a lot of time. 😂

You don't need to understand the lore, just understand that you need jaina to look good otherwise you'll get taken away by the crowd with pitchforks, but you certainly did a good job, grats.
