Death Knight by krysdecker Death Knight by krysdecker
well .... she's finished =)

in this one I decided to change a bit .. focus more on her face than anything, instead of making a full scene with a lot of things going on ...

i have to say it broke my heart a bit to blur the hand/arm.

I knew i was going to do it, to give that camera focus feeling, but i couldnt help it to detail a lot .. and well, most of it ended up lost lol ..

The mace i didnt want to create anything too fancy since it's just "there" while the focus is on her .. so i just made something practical to crush people.

Initially she had a shoulder .. but i decided to get rid of it and explore the neck/shoulder area .. and i think it turned out much better .. it was one of those moments that you are randomly turning off layers to change one thing or another .. and i was like "oh shit .. it looks much better this way!" ..

anyway .. hope you guys enjoy it .. took a small break from drawing monsters and everything ... and its good to get back to drawing a female form .. so here it is .. a ginger draenei =o


oh, she's obviously frost lol


ps. Before anyone comes rioting with pitchforks, i removed the face tentacles. I DON'T like them in the original design, and hell, it's my art =) .. so just like i dont make NE's with those ridiculous huge pointy eyebrows, i dont make face tentacles on draenei. So yes, it was intentional.

I think if you compare the two, you may find that a detailed hand may look better blurred than an non-detailed hand. Just a tiny bit more realism, methinks.

Just found this drawing and it is AWESOME!

I have been searching, for what feels like days (actually has been, lol), for a bad-ass female warrior type drawing that isn't nude or half nude (So I can't get in trouble with the wife). And this is it.


I do have a question...

I had seen that you said you knew you were going to blur her arm and and it broke your heart a little to do so....but did you happen to save or keep a version of it pre-blurred? Because if so, I would love to have it too. And if you could give your permission, I would love to render her out (or probably have someone else do it, since I suck) and use her to be laser sketched onto my laptop that I am about to have built.

I absolutely love this pic. Instantly favored it and put you on watch. My only critique was this: when i first saw it, i thought it was an elf (NE or BE) and then I saw the horn and was like AWESOME abt time someone put draenei in the spotlight. But the more I looked at her, the more I felt the horn is kinda there, without the rest of the distinguishing features of the draenei. I'm not saying I'm a fan of the face tentacles (bc im not, spacegoats is pushing it enough as it is, dont need squid faces) but I was wondering if there was something else that could be done to the horn, or her for that matter, that would solidify that she's a draenei. Just my 2 cents but regardless this became my new wallpaper.

I thought about showing it a bit more .. but then the image didn't get framed right so I just let it be like that.

breathtakingly beautiful - eyecatching, really great! Her expression, those eyes - and maybe it's just because you mentioned it but you can see the hand is so very detailed underneath the blurriness. Very well done indeed!

good old photoshop =) .. and about the links, I don't think there's a magical place to learn to draw. It's just a lot of practice, watching how other's make their art ... and trying to make yours. I have the process of some works of mine explained in my gallery .. you should check them out (as well as tutorials from other artists)

same here. I have three of them. One Warrior (main), one Mage (secondary), and one Paladin (tertiary). My Horde alt is a belf hunter, and has all but the Footpads of the Fang from a dungeon, which were ninja'd by a fucking warrior tank. (I cant remember the name of the armor set)
