Honestly, you think those big poofy things in the sky would be easy to draw, but nope, not for me. I don’t do a lot of backgrounds in my work, and if I do it ends up being an amorphous mess, so I go back and painstakingly clean things up and add details.
I didn’t do that for this drawing, but I thought instead of the wispy backdrops of my previous WoW fan art, I’d go with something a little more scenic for my little gadget-loving tank.
She has been my very first World of Warcraft character. Everyone in game knows me by her name. I love playing my warrior, even though I raid on a resto druid more. She’s my first WoW love.
I’m leaning very much towards more graphic, “cartoony” work. Cleaning up lines, which I’m still shit at, takes up a long time for me. All in all, this drawing took about 10-12 hours to get to a passable point, and then a few hours more for my constant tweaking.
