Bronthea the Resolute by RalphHorsley Bronthea the Resolute by RalphHorsley
Bronthea The Resolute

Acrylic, approx 7" x 10"

World of Warcraft trading card game illustration
©Blizzard Entertainment & Upper Deck.

Original artwork for sale; UK£200

No foe could not be overcome through a stubborn refusal to submit.

A low angle, with strong foreshortening and powerful lighting add to the drama and tension of the image.

Beautifully coloured image, there's really a feel of a loud "klang!" on her shield. Her expression is great, a sort of smug but very dangerous curl of her lips indicate that she knows her enemy just after this one hit and knows that she can beat it. Gorgeusly detailed armour as well! Great work (:

Because you aren't badass enough if you just fight the undead to your dying breath.
No, you have to do it uphill. In the snow. Without a helmet.

Great piece of art. Makes me want to shut down everything I work with currently and just login. =P

Dwarf pallies rock. Almost as much as Draenei pallies. ;)

Excellent stuff, and 'drama and tension' sum this up quite nicely.
