For a long time I was looking for a reference picture for my Blood Elf Warrior on Moon Guard, Jerasen Dawnblade. I had no idea who's art this was until today, and I absolutely love it. Now that I know who did this artwork, I thank you. Absolutely a masterpiece.
For me, what makes things great is use of color. Having everything in smoky bronzes, browns, golds, and reds. And how delicate and fragile the girl is, compared to the overwhelming masculinity and muscular mass of her protector. I love those ornate hanging lanterns, too.
Awesome picture that plays with two extreme's between the musclebound guardian and the frail looking female. And this is from someone who prefers the frailer look on belf males. My only nitpick is about their eyes, where is the fell green glow, or if before the loss of Sunwell the blue arcane one?
