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

EDIT *******

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.

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!
