Anomander by slaine69 Anomander by slaine69
I think this turned out to be more of a 'what if Rake was in WoW' than what I actually think he looks like but I learned a whole bunch from drawing him like this. 

*Edit*

Thickened up the sword as bit

He looks very similar to a Drow, a D&D Dark Elf.

Like Drisst  (or however you spell his name) aesthetically but there's a whole lot more to this guy. Have you read any Steven Erikson I'd totally recommend it.

It does look really cool, but a bit too intricate for Rake. Either way it's very well done and I do like how you did the light, and how solid and heavy the armor actually feels. So overall good work. :)

Thanks man, I agree, like I said in the description it turned all WoW on me half way through because I had some things I wanted to try out, but if I were to do it again (which I probably will at some point) I wouldn't go with less intricacy but rather a less traditional style of armour that matches his anatomy and mimics dragon scales/skin ya know? not entirely sure how that would look though Ima have to mill on it for another couple of years I think :)

...but all I can really think about is that that sword would break in the midde

The effect coming off of dragnipur is wicked bro. The sideburns are a nice touch to. Nice color choice on the armor and excellent details thru out the image ( really on the spot about highlight points where the flames glare should reflect:nod:). In the history of back grounds/back drop images, a dragon has never been a bad thing...but a bad ass thing!:iconjusttrollnplz:

Would you ever consider uploading the concept sketch or early draft of this in your scraps? It'd be awesome to see the foundation in comparison to the completed piece as a learning tool. G'day Sir! :iconyoyocurtnodplz:

Love the level of detail as always, and the lighting really makes him pop.  If Anomander did find his way into WoW, he'd probably solo a few huge raids, and then try  find a way to keep the dark forces from respawning :)
