Same!!! Yeah I'm sure you felt the same- that being a visual person the old models just weren't doing it for me anymore. Even with an overactive imagination. But It's SO EXCITING. Refreshes it. The expressions will be SO COOL. I hope they get more bad ass and interesting facial features.
Yeah, I think the overly stylised design of the characters and environment allowed WoW to age really well in comparison to a lot of other games created at the same time, but with the updates to environments, new NPCs and new races, it's definitely past time to get all the old models revamped. It ought to breathe new life into a lot of character choices that were overlooked before just because the low poly didn't work very well for them. Maybe female trolls will get more than one passable face this time!
.lovely warcraft artthe hair and face are sooo pretty! Please do check out my group, WowCrafters I think you would fit in great and your art as well. We are currently having a Valentines Contest too right now which you might also like. If not that's okay =] can't wait ti hear from you!
Thanks very much for the request to include this work in your gallery, and also for the very kind comment With regards to joining your group however, I am afraid I have had to cut down the number of groups I'm in as my inbox became totally unmanageable. I stayed with one warcraft fan group that I already had a good relationship with and that displayed the majority of work that could be found elsewhere anyway. I'll be sure to pop in for a look around your group page now and again to see what you guys are doing
Haha, well, I had a reference for the clothes, as it's just a gear set from WoW. I only had to worry about the pose and the hair, and the overall colours, but that was challenge enough, certainly! It's not a style I usually work in, so I'm pleased with the outcome
thank you sweetie <3 anatomy is something i'm working on more atm. even with life drawing classes i still struggle to just make it up myself, or to make the pose/angle/composition interesting. ah well, onwards and upwards! x
hehe, i did wonder where you'd got to, but as you'd been on a break before, i assumed you needed another i'll be cutting way back again when term time starts but as i'm painting most days anyway, i'm only on for a couple of hours at a time, so could be worse!
well, i got a big orange hippogryph, and its on fire! but seriously, yes i agree, while im on holiday i graciously have time for both but normally i don't and most other people don't either, they just choose the wrong one!
