Issuing a fearsome war cry the Draeni leapt into combat against his overawed foe.
I wanted to try to convey dynamic movement and power. By cropping the image quite close to the right of the figure, whilst conversely leaving negative space behind to his left, I hoped to create tension with the frame, and the sense that the figure is moving out of the space. This movement is further emphasised by the trailing tail, and tabard.
I also chose a low down point of view so that Draeni is above us, imbuing him with more power, and menace.
