Deathwing - Warcraft by Alrynnas Deathwing - Warcraft by Alrynnas
Omg, I've finally finished this picture! It's been sitting around, waiting to get done, since the end of 2010.

Oh man do I miss WoW, so, so much T-T But, though I no longer play it, that doesn't keep me from drawing art related to it! Once I got around to watching the opening for Cataclysm, I just had to draw Deathwing. I've always loved the lore of Warcraft, and especially that relating to the Aspects. So of course by the time I decide to quit, they come out with the expansion that deals with all that... Figures...

Anyway, drawing Deathwing was definitely the most fun part of this, especially his wings. Once I got that all done, I pretty much lost my motivation to finish the piece OTL But at least I finally got back around to finishing the statues and the buildings. I really do hope to get to finishing more Warcraft fan art in the future...

Referenced Cataclysm opening for the picture.

Deathwing and World of Warcraft belong to Blizzard Entertainment.

(Done in Photoshop CS5.)

This is so amazing xD When I first read his lore I was baffled, and then I wished he didn't die xD

Love it all- the thing that stands out most to me is the weight of Deathwing's claws plowing down onto the towers. Nicely done :D

You really managed to keep the depth and the colors in the picture! However I would perhaps put this in photomanipulation, and not in drawings, since - well technically you have been drawing on top of another picture. Ex: the background sky, is identical to the "real" picture. I see you have pretty much customized the head, and made that from scratch, but it makes the picture a bit wierd, since the elements look very different and doesn't seem to fit together, since you added your personal touch to some parts of the picture, and left it out on some other places. I'd like to see a full-customization, where you've worked with same look, as you have on the head, on the whole picture. Because I find it pretty interesting, you made the head look, allmost three dimentional - so your personal style is pretty cool.

So in the end I wouldn't call it reference when it comes to close to the real-picture - more like a well-done photomanipulation.

I would probably also have added this picture, into the describtion of the picture, since it comes this close.

Thank you. And I thank you for your opinion. But, I would not call this a photo manipulation since everything in here was drawn by me, even the sky. It took quite some time, but it was all drawn. I used several screenshots I took from that scene (including the one you linked) as reference to get it all looking as close to the original moment as possible. The head even had several different screenshots used as reference to make sure it still looked like Deathwing's head. The intent of this picture was getting it looking as much like it fit in the scene as I could get.

I apologize if I somehow came off as snarky in this response, but that was not my intent. I just wanted to try and explain why then I put this into the drawing section, since it was all drawn by me.

Fair enough - it just appears to me, that you have been drawing on top of the other picture, because as I mentioned, the sky is identical to the original picture at some areas. I have a keen eye to see the difference between photographies and drawings as for an example.

The reason why I belive this, is probably because elements seem very differet. The sky is very michaelangelo like to the left in the picture, where the transition is very smooth, while the sky in the other half of the picture, is kinda "spotty".

Since you said you drew all this, all by yourself, what bothers me a bit, is, that why didn't you make it all look just as "photorealistic" as the original picture? If you could get the sky, wings and towers to be so close to the orignal picture - then I don't understand why you didn't do it with the rest of the picture ex: deathwings head. It appears to be completely different to the rest of the picture - and yea, as I mentioned previously, this could be more awesome, if the elements all kinda fit together.

But in case you didn't draw-on-top of the original pictures, then I must give you my respect, to get some of the elements in this picture so close to the ´real one, and the cinematic.
