Zaistor the Vigilant by RalphHorsley Zaistor the Vigilant by RalphHorsley
Aldor Draeni

Acrylic, approx 7" x 10"

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

Original artwork sold.

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.
