Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this armor for Garrosh is way cooler than what Garrosh ended up wearing.

I miss illustrations like this in the new books. I hope Blizzard asks you to do something like this again soon!

SPOILER ALERT: You have no source and are probably talking shit. Also, Gorehowl already drops in Karazhan.

Garrosh is a deeper character than he gets credit for: Thrall is actually the one to blame for a lot of what Garrosh has done. Garrosh is trying to be like his father, but the problem is Thrall has only told Garrosh about one side of his father; the hero who died to save his people from a curse. He totally ignores the fact that while under the curse Grom was a bloodthirsty monster who wreaked havoc on the Alliance. So with all his war mongering, Garrosh is just trying to imitate his father, because he thinks that is how a hero and leader acts.

God... I WISH he stayed this humble in the game like he is here.

Five seconds after this he mounts Mannoroth's head over his throne like he is the one who killed him. =/

He's not being humble here. Immediately after he receives this sword, he swings it around, goes into the hold and argues with Cairne lol

One of my favorite pieces. I love this artwork in the Shattering's hardback version and I loved the actual scene in the book. You illustrated it perfectly. The textures, the colors, the tone--it's all wonderful. You are one of my favorite illustrators and this is some great work!

Ive not read The Shattering but I really like this. Garrosh's face is full of awe of his fathers axe, the axe that freed ALL orcs on Azeroth from the blood curse. With his hand on Garrosh's shoulder I'd imagine that Thrall would be saying something along the lines of: "Lok'Tar Garrosh. This is Gorehowl, Weapon of Grommash Hellscream, Ender of the blood curse. With it, may you do great deeds in life and earn your place among the Lok'vadnod in death."
