Elder Zeez by RalphHorsley Elder Zeez by RalphHorsley
Elder Zeez

Acrylic, approx 7" x 10"

World of Warcraft trading card game illustration

"Your courage will be their inspiration."

I wanted to offer a different approach with this image. I adopted a slightly more stylised design, which was emphasised by the way the winged windserpent curls around and over the Draeni.

The main focus of this piece was meant to be on the Draeni's weapon. It is given a prominent position in the images, almost in profile, whilst it's colour scheme is strongly contrasted by the background colour's I chose.

Lastly we look up at the figures, which helps make them all that more imposing, whilst a narrative element is added by their attention being drawn off to the left.

I think this image really says "hunter". (Perhaps because of the focus on the weapon and of course the expression he has.)
