The Destroyer of Worlds by krysdecker The Destroyer of Worlds by krysdecker
"Such a pity ...

Such a pity to waste such a delicious ability for carnage ... "


----------------

And it's finally done ..

I decided to simply update this one because a crapton of people already fav'd and its linked in other places etc .. so it's just easier to update this one.

Some considerations ..

Broxigar axe I intended to be curved .. simply because when I pictured his awesome axe .. i imagined that it could be something of usual shape yet lethal .. so the curved shape of the shaft is on purpose.

Another detail is that ... weirdly enough .. is not mentioned if Sargeras have or doesn't have a tail. I found it was fitting to give him one, simply because it fits the "blazing fire" described to cover his body, to finish in a tail .. and his "goat" legs kinda ask for a tail to balance ... and i think while he might not have one .. fits his gigantic shape, horns etc (and archi and KJ both have one, so .. what the hell .. i gave the man a tail =d )


**** EDIT: HA .. i was right .. Sargeras DO have a tail:

"... The flesh was that of death and the eyes the fiery emptiness of utter chaos. Sargera's teeth were fangs. Behind him wipped a long, thick tail jagged scales jutting out at the tip" ... page 323 of The Sundering

Thanks Ghost for the tip.

So yeh ... sorry to disappoint many people .. but it's not diablo =( .... lol

Wonderful masterpiece i might say.
I've read the books(War of the ancients and The Sundering) some time ago, so i don't actually remember the small details regarding Sargeras.
What i do remember about the encounter is that Broxigar was wielding a huge double edged Axe made by Malfurion(i think) and blessed by Cenarius.
Now what's interesting about this axe is that is made of WOOD. The books describes it to be extremely sharp and light with a "faith glow".

And another thing, although you can interpret the "mounting of corpses" as you like and you can use your artistic touch to represent that however you like, in the book it says that Broxigar was slaying so many demons that at a point he was standing on a mounting of corpses, smiling at the hordes of demons that were coming his way so that part can be represented in many ways.

And i can't tell if you depicted him as a Brown or a green orc. But he was a brown one(the original color of the orcs prior to the Corruption)

All in all it's a masterpiece. That's my 2 cents :)

It's so lovely there are hardly any words to describe it. The shading, colors, originality, and everything about it is so beautiful it looks like it could pop right out of the screen. The flames look pretty real too, and that's really hard to do. I try flames and I suck at it because my flames look 2d. It's a beautiful work of art feeling the evil come right off the picture. There isn't much else to say about this drawing other than you have real talent at drawing. My friend who is also a good drawer could learn from you.

No, he's Broxigar the Red, the great orc from 10,000 years ago. He is the only mortal who have faced Sargeras personally. His weapon was an axe creatured by Malfurion and blessed the night elf demigod Cenarius.

When death calls, he knocks.

For one must secure his locks.

Otherwise before the clock tocks.

You will be slain by an orc called Brox.

You, sir, have certainly succeed in that!
I can't draw at all, but can't complain about the imagination. However, when I was reading the book, I had difficulties envisioning this fight in sufficiently grand scale and drama. Now I have a visual reference ;)
Once again, thank you and keep up the good work!

just like you change or "adapt" things from a book to a movie, you can do the same to an image. It's a description "standing atop a mountain of corpses" .. doesn't necessarily mean he's on top of 500 bodies actually forming a mountain.

I usually take a more realistic approach while making my drawings, so no .. i will not make an orc on top of a mountain made of bodies. While it might sound amazing from a literally point of view, the image looks dumb (unless you are making a poster like conan, that pretty much is that guy standing in a small place, cornered by half a dozen enemies, and several of them laying around him, giving the idea of a "mountain") ...

AND the fact that interpretation is something that vary a lot .. you read A and imagine one thing, i read the same A and imagine something else.

So no, i will NOT make a mountain made of corpses .. the very idea of that in this image looks retarded in my opinion .. doesn't fit the image that i wanted to make (where the focus was BROX and SARGERAS, not 3324897234 bodies at this feet) ... so in MY point of view, in MY interpretation, and above everything else, in MY drawing, i wanted to make several bodies in his PATH, giving the idea that he went killing one after another while making his way to face sargeras.

You are always welcome to make your version ..

Sorry if it sounded rude, but this is the type of comment that i find very dumb. It's like me going to the statue of Davi and saying "wtf man, his hand is huge, and his penis is the size of a peanut".

Wanna criticize the tecnical or even artistic aspect of the image? fire away, i love that .. wanna pick a "detail" and point it out as a flaw? no thanks.

well, as I had thought: Sargeras kicks ass and has everything to be the last boss of wow.

as always, very rich in design details, an example is the fire that was very well done, the details of the scenario, the armor, skin, etc.. (you were uncertain to make the tail? became less labored, but nothing that takes the attention of the whole which is fantastic).

ps.: people should stop calling Sargeras Diablo.

really great job

in the sundering when brox encounters him after having passed through the portal knaak states that he has a tail, also about broxigar's axe it is stated numerous times during the well of eternity trilogy that he uses a massive two handed doble edged axe. other than that i love this pic having just finished the war of the ancients trilogy

SPOILERS for war of the ancients trilogy this next part is pure speculation by me


it could be for many reasons that his avatar in her battle shows no tail, one that is clearly stated in war of the ancients is that malfurion colapsed the portal with sargeras in the middle of the two worlds, it isnt stated anywhere that this killed or injured him however such a catastrophic event would have some kind of repercussions on his body.

Brox is one of the greatest unsung heroes of Azeroth. Just to know his axe lived on is amazing. Also, I saved his ring when I got it as a drop. Hopefully he'll get more attention in the future. Awesome job man! The fire is intense and I love the way you drew his expression. Well done.
