Malfurion Stormrage

World of Warcraft trading game card artwork.
Acrylic on board, approx 14" x 20"
Original artwork SOLD.

Copyright Blizzard

I chose a low viewpoint and forced perspective to make Malfurion more imposing and dramatic.

Whenever you take an original piece and turn it digital to implement small adjustments, do you scan the image ? if so how do you scan the larger images ?

Thanks

I scan in parts and stitch together in Photoshop.

Did they ever explain why Furion was the only bipedal Grove-Keeper?

Not to my knowledge

Perhaps bipedal anatomy is the result of inbreeding amidst Cenarius' stag-spawn...

Another illustration... dost thou do more personal work? Painted such that it will leave thy viewer not necessary certain of what their eye's see? Your brush strokes leave nothing to the imagination. Tis well crafted, but yet another portrait without any meaning.
