Boggspine Knuckles by RalphHorsley Boggspine Knuckles by RalphHorsley
Boggspine Knuckles

Acrylic, approx 10" x 11"

World of Warcraft trading card game illustration

Original artwork for sale; UK£350

"Equipped with her Boggspine Knuckles the Gnome fears nought!"

I really enjoyed working on this feisty character.

To help keep the focus on the Gnome I employed looser and broader brushstrokes in the background, with the tighter detail and rendering being applied to the figure.

Great picture!

Your skill with a brush is undisputable.

:)

Ah, and that offhand so remembered me of the spirit swords of the Kasumi-Oji clan from Bleach. Looks wicked!

I actually had to look it up on Wowhead, and found out it drops from Hungarfen, and I'm flabberghasted I've never seen it before. Must have killed him a 3 digit count back in TBC. :D

The Boggspine Knuckles are a beautiful weapon. There's something about having a weapon made out of fungus.

I really like this one =) looks like you stuck in in Arathi Basin.

The ear piercing adds that much more personality to him, almost like he might be fun if he weren't about to pull your face off.

Yes, that's right it is set in the arathi basin.

I simply love your halfling pictures. These halflings are somehow cute, you cannot take them serious when they try to attck you but they will knock you out as fast as you cannot say halfling. Great work. I see you like halflings as well. You put a ot of emotions in these drawings.

What a great depiction so full of color, details, action, and atmosphere! I just learned about this CCG and Upper Deck is right down the road from me as it turns out! Amazing art, this fits right into the universe of WoW nicely!
