Zenith Shadowforce

By RalphHorsley
Zenith Shadowforce

Acrylic, approx 7" x 10"

World of Warcraft trading card game illustration
©Blizzard Entertainment & Upper Deck.

Original artwork sold.

The powerful Warlock and his beast companion overlook the blasted lands around them, steely indifference in his heart.

This is an unusual layout for card art. The piece needed to function as the Portariat shown here, but also when cropped down to more conventional card proportions ( at a point just below is lower hand).

I tried to play with this by using a spotlit effect upon the Mage, whilst letting his lower robes, and the ground around him fall into shadow.

This is so cool. When I started playing this game nearly three years ago, this was the very first hero card I played with.
Wonderful artwork, greatly captures the warlock feel.

Im thinking of trying to see abut doing art for the wow card game you think you could give me some pointers?
RalphHorsley's avatar

If you are trying to do some art for WoW then make sure you keep all the costume/figures/etc the same as the game, and try to make it dramatic.
