I think this turned out to be more of a 'what if Rake was in WoW' than what I actually think he looks like but I learned a whole bunch from drawing him like this. 


Thickened up the sword as bit

thank you for making me interested in another Universe. It's not like I already had my Hands full with Warhammer.

He looks very similar to a Drow, a D&D Dark Elf.

Like Drisst  (or however you spell his name) aesthetically but there's a whole lot more to this guy. Have you read any Steven Erikson I'd totally recommend it.

I think this looks like a great representation of what Rake would look like wakened to anger.

It does look really cool, but a bit too intricate for Rake. Either way it's very well done and I do like how you did the light, and how solid and heavy the armor actually feels. So overall good work. :)

Thanks man, I agree, like I said in the description it turned all WoW on me half way through because I had some things I wanted to try out, but if I were to do it again (which I probably will at some point) I wouldn't go with less intricacy but rather a less traditional style of armour that matches his anatomy and mimics dragon scales/skin ya know? not entirely sure how that would look though Ima have to mill on it for another couple of years I think :)

This is really cool and well-detailed!

...but all I can really think about is that that sword would break in the midde

thanks man, Aaaah but its a magic sword  and it' of adamantium! and other really strong unbreakable non- existing materials
