World of Warcraft - Undead Mage by MartaNael World of Warcraft - Undead Mage by MartaNael

This is a commission by DeviantArt for Blizzard I have been painting over the last weeks. :) I was asked to paint an Undead Mage from World of Warcraft in their order Hall. 

When I got this commission I felt really excited. It had always been my dream to paint for Blizzard, so having the honor to portray one of the WOW classes was truly amazing. It was a challenge having to paint all the magic glow colors mixed with the undead cold skin tones and put it all together, but I love painting light and color :P

I got really nervous at some stages, especially at the beginning. When starting a painting, I spend a lot of time deciding the composition, pose and color scheme, since this will define the overall mood. I eventually went with a low-angle shot and I tried to push the twisting of the body to increase motion of the whole painting. It was a great journey all the way and I'm quite happy with how it turned out, so I hope you guys like it! :)

The commission was done for this: deviantart.com/WoWlegion

Why is this so awesome!? Did you play around with color inversion or some filters or something?

Dafuq, I removed the pic from my notifications weeks ago.
It just keeps popping up, as I go through my watchlist, and I keep removing it daily.
I feel really trolled right now. Feels like either devart is seriously bugging or somebody paid for it to pop up all the time - kinda.

And if I havnt commented on the pic itself yet: I faved it cuz  like it ... colors, execution, perspective... all of it!

My only critique is that I didn't know she was undead until I saw the title of the piece. Aside from her arms, fingers and the bony knee under the robe there was nothing to indicate to me that she was undead otherwise. This may be due to the use of the lively and vibrant color and style of the picture which I like, but maybe more decay in the face and hair would have better gotten her state of decay across.

Undead from WoW are pretty much like humans except for the bones visible on knees and elbows, larger hands, and the pale skin :) Thanks! :)
