Something a lil’ different: My WoW Fan-art.

Was a bit reluctant whether to post this or not, but what the hell, let’s do it.

I do art WoW fan-art, that no one ever gets to see. I’ve never really shown these to anyone, but I just thought I might share with my ~4 readers. So here’ it is, mah fan-art.

Anyway, it started years ago when I first played WoW, it was in TBC. I was a draenei, and I met a lovely Belf who saved me from some mobs in Hellfire. We ended up chatting on MSN, and we sorta RP’d the “forbidden friendship” between a Belf and a Draenei. Long story short, I ended up doing a lot of fan art about Belfs and Draenei, but they were mostly on paper. Until I did my first digital one, and then started doing more, cuz I liked the final result.

This was that first piece (click for full-size)

And, I made the habit of recording my progress as I draw (in case someone bitches that it’s fake xd) so I also made a youtube vid about the progress:

So yeah. After that, I decided to do more. It was around the time when Transmog was introduced, so I decided to make a video about my tailor Draenei while she’s making the Primal Mooncloth set. This is the logo you see on my site, yes I did that :P

If you have’t noticed by now I HATE drawing backgrounds. >_<

Also youtube vid:

Then I went for a portrait if you will, of my main and my baby, Samaramon. I obtained Benediction/Anathema back in the day, and I’m really proud of my staff so I try to use it anywhere. This was a gear that I usually wear around the city, without shoulders or helm, and decided to draw it so I can print it and hang it in my room (I never did lol.)

Oh! This was also the first time I got a drawing pad, from my parents as a gift after they saw my previous art <3

Then, Pandaria was announced. I got on the beta, and it was breathtaking. The pre-patch hit, with the revamped dungeons and new talents, and I saw this amazing, amazing robe. The original Robes of Koegler. Sadly, it got a model change, BUT NOT BEFORE I DID A FANART OF IT. I also included the Umbrella of Chi’ji, which was also amazing. I took a screenshot from the Beta, and edited my art to fit in it, and this was the end result:

The vidya:


Then I took a break. Pandaria hit, I was too busy leveling and simply uninspired.

Until I saw this masterpiece. The Tides of War Machinima. I gotta admit, I cried like a little girl (which I sort of am?). But more importantly, it inspired me to do my next piece of fan-art: The struggle withing Jaina. With this simple but graphic pic, I showed how I see Jaina before and after the Mana bomb, and how you can visually and mentally see her breakdown.

The background is screenshots because I really dislike drawing objects, I love drawing people though. So here it is, the Tides of War:

(clicky for full-screen!)

Drawing every hair one by one was sooooooooooo furstrating lol but I eventually got around to it. Sadly, I didn’t record my process as it took several days, on and off, and there were simply too much layers. I drew both parts at once, and just drew a line between the two faces.


So, that’s it. I finished the last one today, so I wanted to post it here. I’ve never submitted any of these to Blizz, and I don’t really plan to (I have major issues xd). But yeah, art is very personal to me, both digital or IRL. Most of my pics (as you can see in the Umbrella one) start off as paper sketches that I scan and use as concept later on. Others just start from scratch.

Hope you enjoyed this post, sorry it wasn’t transmog-related!

    These are absolutely spectacular. I’ve seen the one featuring the Robes of Koehler before and thought it was gorgeous at the time. You should share these on DeviantART.

      Thank you! I don’t really have a DA (yet) because I simply had nothing to put on it. But now I might reconsider it :)
      And yes, I posted the robe fan-art on Wowhead’s page about the robe, as a tribute to the lost graphic :(
