Fork Lightning by RalphHorsley Fork Lightning by RalphHorsley
Fork Lightning

Acrylic, approx 7" x 10"

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

Original artwork SOLD
"Two for the price of one!"

In this piece I opted for a point of view from below to make the Draeni more powerful looking and imposing. The titlted horizon line adds drama whilst reinforcing the narrative flow, created by the lightning, from left to right.

The mid/foreground elements have an underlying purplish tinge and this helps them to stand out strongly against the contrasting green background. Whilst the colour scheme as a whole gives a slightly sickly and uneasy feeling to the piece.

Yup, I bought this painting at Gen Con this year, very pleased to have it in the studio. All you work looks great and I was happy to get to flip through them (many times) at Gen Con this year. I hope you had a good time!

Great work ^^ I like the structure of the stone building. The mino and the undead are in great positions. They look very dramatic. I think the draenei looks a bit stiff in her movement. The left arm of her looks a bit weird. Its as thick as the tail is. The picture is very dramatic but their is an unequal distribution of excitement between the draenei and the two enemies. Nevertheless its a good picture.

Thanks for the comment. I was wanting the Draeni to look more casual and relaxed to show the ease she dealt with her opponents, but clearly didn't pull that off :(

The pose of that there spell caster could have been better I think. She's not very imposing at the moment in my opinion. Although I like the way the other two blokes seem to be flung outwards by that there jolt!
