Scarlet Champion by RalphHorsley Scarlet Champion by RalphHorsley
Scarlet Champion

World of Warcraft trading game card artwork.
Acrylic on board, approx 15" x 11.5"
Original artwork SOLD.

"None shall pass."

I chose a low viewpoint and strong perspective to imbue the figure with more power, also reinforced by an almost symmetrical, design, feel offset by the contrasting huge hammer.

Additionally the saturated colours of the figure work nicely against the more subdued background.

I don't know about the hammer, but for gear, lemmie try this: Thorium boots, leggings, gauntlets, and chest. Maleficent shoulders, Blood Knight's helm, can't tell the belt, Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade. The hammer looks like an uncommon item, but could be a rare. Either way I love this, seeing as I am in a scarlet guild

It's funny how this plain hammer and armor fits the vanilla charme so well. ^^
Very well done, even though I personally prefer the newer stuff.

Do I have something helpful to criticize ?
Nothing specific...more the feeling that the perspective on the body MIGHT be off or that the hands could be bigger for a Warcraft character. Bigger hands could propably help make the scene a bit more believeable since he seems to have difficulties to grab around the shaft, because it's so big.
By the way, I like how you painted the stone stairs and the wall. I always struggle with stone.
