Wow epic picture. I have that phoenix as a mount. Is it true that the mount (The Ashes of Alar) is based on Peep's Whistle?

Maybe when the Kael'thas card releases in hearthstone we will get kael from this. Blizz plz
SilverrOne Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2014
fabulous! I love them all!

(Though the manaforge actually made me grin: I loved Netherstorm.)

Its a pity that this was never released :( i have two of your other card tins and they are epic :D

Like with most of your art, I really can't think of anything to say that can truly adequately praise this work, so... :+favlove:
theworgenwarlock Featured By Owner May 9, 2013
My favorite part is of course Akama and Vashj, and Kael'thas. Really all three of them are epic. Well Kael and Vash WERE epic, til they got killed. I think Akama is still around tho

Even not released itīs really good,

i keep forgetting the draenais name
theworgenwarlock Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013
AKAMA! HIS NAME IS AKAMA! Spell it with me now, A-K-A-M-A, and he is a Broken, not a Dranei
SerVantoDeathwing Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Broken to me are old and evilish drenai
theworgenwarlock Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013
Well, Akama isn't evil, he's vengeful. He had fought with the Felorcs and other demons for years trying to defend his people, then him and ashtoungue survivors were corrupted from their original Dranei state and become Broken

Now I get it:iconstupidplz:
theworgenwarlock Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2013

Best colors ever!!! ;)

Badass! I love Akama here...creepy!
RogueTalon Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2011
Awwhh this is too badass to not be put into production. Do you artists have much say when it comes to story and plot development? Coz once StarCraft2 expansions are finito blizzards starting on WC4 right? or so says that shifty grape vine >:|
midknightmagic Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2011
This is brilliant!! I love the colours in this. Amazing.
onivalentine Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011
Amazing, Love it! Too bad it was never relesed :/
CurlyJul Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2011
Oh Kael...<3

excellence goes unsaid!

If you have a few minutes free would you give me an opinion of my own art. A generalizations of weakness and strengths;

Thank You.

That is Lady Vashj?
Anamaris Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2010   Digital Artist
This would make an amazing wallpaper.
Too bad the card was never released. =[
theherozion Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2010
sheesh... bask in the glory of raneman! :O saw this on a big tarp outside an action figure store in my place. Al'ar just pretty much kicks ass.
GRAPHICSOUL Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Amazing talent and amazing game....
Spirit-Of-Sin Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2010
Like so many others Kael is my favourite character also! This is amazing, the poses, the colours the expressions are all perfect! :D well done
SorceressSeren Featured By Owner May 4, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm mixed between Kael and Sylvanas... Sylvanas is my favorite female, Kael my favorite male.
Annubrius Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2010
ohh boo!! thats unfortunate. still looks amazing. :3
azekariel Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2010
God, I wish I could buy prints of your work... This is awesome. I love the lighting, and the pose of the characters... and my god, your use of COLOUR *dies* This is why you're pretty much my favourite artist of all time, haha.
MistressAinley Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome art!
I love ur Kael'thas, he's so yumi!
lordtrigonstar Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2010
Nice art.But no Illidan in.


Trigon: Did Arella told you what happen to your father?

Raven: She told me enough. She told me you kill him.

Trigon: No, I am your father.

Raven: NO!!!
vjallerdyce Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2010
this is perhaps one of the best poses of kael, who happens to be my favorite character in warcraft...

i was wondering if you have a solo pic of kael similar to that? that would be great!!!
quartre88 Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2010
i love the draenei =D

btw if you could draw the whole of him, might've been greater XD

great job!
rohaam Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2010
I think I saw this one, I saw it at this game store, it was a sort of poster or something

Might this be true?
fellentierll Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2010
did you come up with the concept for what A'lar would look like? if so, how did you end up with the final rendition?
evassaC Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2010  Professional Writer
There is a poster of this one in the nearby book store, looked awesome then, but here it is more colourfull.

* must recist... epeening... that i haz A'lar... * woops, just did xD
dEpresiija Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2010
Uh,looks perfect.
I wonder,..if its not a secret, much time you spend on 1 drawing,like this?
Arsenal21 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2010
A piece usually takes me 2 weeks from thumbnail to final.
dEpresiija Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2010
uh. Long time.. but ofc for these perfect works. :)
blazecheetah Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2010
I really like how you can see Kael's legs under his mage dress lol. A lot of people draw robed characters in positions where you should be able to see the outline of their legs, but you can't. :(
