Forged in Shadow and Flame by RalphHorsley Forged in Shadow and Flame by RalphHorsley
Forged in Shadow and Flame

Acrylic, approx 7" x 10"

World of Warcraft trading card game illustration
©Blizzard Entertainment.

Original artwork for sale; SOLD

The Worgen roared in delightful anger as he destroyed the resources of his enemy!

The lighting was everything in this piece, and I tried to use it to goo effect, both in providing focus and in silhouetting the figure and flying debris.

More details about the process can be found on my blog here:

The brushwork in this one seems somewhat more energetic and quick than in most of your pieces, which I think works to good effect with the subject matter. And of course, the lighting is indeed very impressive; I like the touch of pink to the flame glow.

I love the orange and purples, the snarling wolf silhouette frames it all quite nicely.
