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 really love this picture! Since I play a Draenei Frost DK in WoW I'd like to ask if it's ok by you for me using her as my profile picture in my guild's forum? Of course I'll mention you & put a link to this beauty over here in my signature. ;)

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)
