I am starting a new tutorial series on my YouTube channel where I will go through, with audio commentary, the ins-and-outs of my workflow. The series will be more catered towards beginners, but I hope that artists of all skill levels will have something to takeaway from it as well.
I don't believe in passive participation, so I hope to see your creature work in the comments section after viewing the video!
During its initial reveal, Frost Lich Jaina was one of the most broken Deathknight cards. It still is - in Arena - but its presence is hardly felt in the constructed space. Viability aside, I really liked the concept of introducing Deathknight versions of existing classes rather than creating a new character class.
I immediately had the image of Jaina and Lich King Arthas waltzing in Icecrown. I felt the iconic Alex Ross' Joker and Harley Quinn was a perfect reference for this unholy union and shamelessly copied the pose entirely. I hope I did justice to the original reference.
This is also the first process video in a while. I have been bouncing between 2 homes in the recent months after switching jobs and getting married. I hope to release videos more regularly once I get my own place (in about 3-4 years). In the meantime, I will just do them as and when I get the opportunity to do so.
Super excited about the expansion that's coming out this Thursday (Friday SGT). The idea of having a deathknight Jaraxxus came up after reading a thread from Reddit.
The Ungoro expansion offered a new way for mage to unleash a guaranteed one turn kill combo. This was likened to the Exodia cards from Yu Gi Oh. The comparison inspired the creation of the artwork above.
This was done in between wedding prep, therefore I did not record the video process.
Fire Plume's Heart, the Warrior quest is the only quest card I received after opening nearly 60 packs (purchased with hard-earned gold) in the Un'Goro expansion. I love Ragnaros, and since the card has been retired to the hall of fame, this quest is the next best thing to satisfy my desire of launching massive fireballs turn after turn at the opponent.
Last year I took part in the Uniqlo T-Shirt Design Competition. I chose the Mario franchise and created 2 different artwork, each with their individual style.
The first is based on the Gusty Garden Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. It features my favorite tune in the game. The second is the classic boss battle between Mario and his nemesis Bowser.
I didn't win (you can see the winning submissions in the URL above), but it was fun working on these pieces, especially the second one. It has been a while since I created a vector illustration.
Sorry about the sudden hiatus to my artwork submission. This few months has been filled with freelance work and preparation for my wedding. I will try to find pockets of time to do some simple artwork. But if that fails, you will still hear from me after July!
Old man Logan caricature practice.
While it's not my favourite superhero movie or even X-Men movie (I thought DoFP was better, for the sole merit of being able to accomplish so much within the duration of the film), it is certainly the best film I've seen this year. I love the relationship dynamics between Logan, Xavier and X-23.
Did you like the film?
