Yrel by krysdecker Yrel by krysdecker
So ... I decided to make a portrait of her to go along with the pin-up. I was inspired by some artists that create amazing portraits, so I'm trying it myself. I'm quite happy with the result, and it also gives me the opportunity to work on details (which shockingly, is something I love =D ). 

To do that, I decided to make a less "serious" version of Yrel from World of Warcraft. 

Fun fact, her moles and marks are very similar to the other version I drew. Gotta keep it consistent!So I hope you guys like the result. More to come in the future!

And as usual, if you like my work, you can always support it at www.patreon.com/krysdecker . You get can high-res versions, nsfw alternates, the original PSD and all that fun stuff =D (Big Grin)

Officially the most annoying WoD NPC, but this is a truly lovely portrait! Great work as always ;D

I actually like her storyline. While it can get annoying at some points, at least is not the usual "oh crap happened in my life, so I went bad for no real reason!". I mean, she does put her stuff together and deal with it =p

True, I guess I've just done it too many times. ^_^' Especially the Shadowmoon arc to get my garrison to level 2.

I do like that Blizz added another female racial leader, since Tyrande has been relegated a bit with the return of Malfurion and Sylvanas was the only one left. Too bad it isn't for the 'real' world T_T

By the by, its pretty awesome how so much of your art is used in lore videos (if you KNOW about it that is) I always recognise it. Especially the one of Sargeras and the one of Arthas torturing Sylvanas.

The hair looks a bit... Short? I could've sworn Yrel had longer hair in the game. Regardless, I shouldn't try to find something to complain about every time you post a picture xP She still looks cute :P Just as she did last time.

They didn't use an unique hair model on her (since she's basically a regular draenei with unique horns) , but on her official concept art it's quite shorter compared with the ingame model s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/7…;

And I usually change a detail or another compared with the original looks. I mean, she doesn't have freckles in any image, but I think it goes so well with draeneis, that I add on my drawings =p

I agree that the freckles goes well here. Makes her look a bit more cuter, purer even. And now I see where the hair difference is. Much shorter than in the game xP 

Still, I getcha. People are always allowed to change a few details here and there :P T'is their right. And if someone really starts complaining, just argue that she's younger in this picture, and that's the reason for the shorter hair xD

The problem is that she's the kind of character that has very little things that are unique to her. It's mainly her horn. 

For example, the Sylvannas drawing I did, I could have said that it was pretty much any high elf (or blood elf if the eyes were green), and it would have worked. Her undead form is very unique (skin color, eye color, face markings), but her form alive is pretty generic. What defines her really is the armor. 

Same goes for Yrel, when you remove all the armor, she's a regular draenei, with very few "unique" features. Besides, I think a character can have different interpretations (given it's defining features remain constant). I mean, they don't have fixed LEGO hair and armor glued to their body =p

Have you looked at the in-game models? Armour is all but painted onto their bodies! xD 

But I getcha. But from another perspective (the Devil's Advocate's perspective), one could also say that it's a good thing, since they are just normal people who happen to have achieved great stuff. From an artistic point of view, however, I fully agree that it'd be nice to have more than just one feature differentiating them from the average joe/jolene.
