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.)

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.
