Hey look, Art from me. It's a miracle.
Started this back in March when things got a little tough in my life and only now decided to finally get it finished. This was inspired by an old roleplay between Calo and myself, which at the time, was a roleplay I could relate too quite well. I don't feel like getting into details, but in case it's not obvious, lets just say this was one of Mav and Mani's harder times as well. Fuck, who am I kidding, it was their hardest. He almost killed her for god's sake. It was our first huge character molding portion of their story and will remain one of my favorites for some time. So with all that, I was quite happy to finally be able to draw a scene from this, even if years later.
About the piece itself, this was my first real attempt at a background, believe it or not. The two or three I've drawn since were from me pushing to draw and improve on my backgrounds after trying to tackle this one. Even despite the flaws, I am quite pleased with it's turn out and look forward to improving more on them as I go.
The armor and items they are wearing/using are all actual WoW inspired pieces. T9 was actually the tier Mav was using back when we roleplayed this, and Mani I put in a tier around the there because a) her actual gear at the time was a mismatch of dungeon shit and b) T9 for Death knights sucked ass! On that note, all I could think while colouring these was..why the fuck are there so many sources of light on this gear? Even the fucking dagger has lights on it! What is going on??
Needless to say, this picture turned out to be quite the experiment for me, but over all I'm very pleased with it. I drew fire, WoW gear, and a real background for the first time and I couldn't feel more accomplished have completed the task.
I really hope you like it and thanks for looking. Comments are always loved and appreciated!
