Illiyana Moonblaze by RalphHorsley Illiyana Moonblaze by RalphHorsley
Illiyana Moonblaze

Acrylic, approx 10" x 11"

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

Original artwork for sale; UK£350

Don't confuse relaxed with unprepared.

In portraying Illiyana I wanted to convey the sense of a powerful figure who knows their own strength, and because of that appears nonchalant and confident. To help with that impression I chose a view that is straight 'to camera' and without too much twist or foreshortening.

To help make the figure pop I opted for slightly desaturated colours in the background, with softer marks and edges to the forms, whilst Illiyana is picked out by the back rim lighting.

Full details of the card she appears on can be found here:

she looks badass and I like the fact you drew her with very long ears and eyebrows, people sometimes forget that nighg elves are not just blood elves with purple skin
