Mages, ten-man raiding, and other things that are awesome.

Tuesday Art Day: Talwen

Back at Pugging Pally I used to do art posts fairly often. I think it’s a fine tradition that I wouldn’t mind continuing!

Here is a commission I just recently finished for a friend of Lara‘s. This is her draenei paladin, Tal, and she is awesome (if I do say so myself). The armour was conceived of by her and assembled/altered by the two of us with our brainstorming; it’s a combination of the Tier 8 paladin set combined with Tier 6 (shoulders and crown). I changed the colours of those pieces so that they would look as if they were part of the T8 set.

Because you all know how I feel about draenei. Draenei. Are. Awesome!

So that is thing one; I always enjoy sharing some art I’ve been working on! Secondly, I have written a guest post that is the probable first in a series of guest posts for Vosskah over at Sword and Board. Yes, that’s right, Vosskah, infamous raid leader and utterer of French expletives! Those of you who have been sad I don’t write about pugging as much may like this series, because…

I made a warrior.  And all she’s been doing is tanking (ulp). Meantime, Voss provides useful information about tanking. I think it’s a fun combination, especially for anyone else who may be interested in leveling lowbie warrior tanks. That’s something that Vid was always lacking as she leveled – I couldn’t tell people about good choice to make because I really was just figuring it out as I went along. Unlike me, Voss knows what he is doing.

It may take my little warrior a long time to level this way, but the journey promises to be a nerve-wracking one. Mosey over and read Looking To Be A Great Warrior? if you are so inclined!

  1. Very nice. Love the choice of armor. That is my favorite shield.

  2. I’m not sure if I’ve said this before, but I love your drawing style! Fantastic job on the background as well, it really enhances the image.

  3. Gorgeous job, even if it’s a pally. 🙂

  4. Gorgeous art! I remain impressed, as always.

  5. Payce being draenei as of today… *wink wink* …and that drawing is awesome ^^

    • Really, Payce? I’m SHOCKED. Absolutely shocked. (I paused this comment to read because you MUST have blogged about it).

      You made the right choice! …and your blog is going to need some new decor. >:)

      Welcome to the Light side (again). Thanks for your kind words about the image. It’s hard to make a draenei look BAD, really. But I may be biased.

  6. Gorgeous! I love how the background supports and complements the colors of the armor without overwhelming it.

  7. […] been trying to work on incorporating backgrounds into my work more often (witness this, and the last Tuesday art day, also a draenei paladin.) I think it’s an endeavour that’s been going well so […]

  8. I’m so pleased with how it came out! Thanks Vid, for doing such a beautiful job, as always ❤
