WoW Worgen Prot Warrior Redo by Dreamspirit WoW Worgen Prot Warrior Redo by Dreamspirit
Completed - August 8th, 2011

Edit: Wow! Thank you SO much for the honor of receiving a Daily Deviation for this piece! I put a lot of love into it, so it feels awesome being able to share it with you guys! <3

This is (yet another) approach to the Protection warrior worgen piece I was working on a few months ago. I consider this a more dynamic, "TCG"-style approach to the piece.

This isn't any character in particular, just a fan art (Protection warrior worgen) in the Warcraft style. This is the first time I've tried my hand at drawing a worgen as well. :)

The motivation behind this was the idea that if raids and such played out in a more realistic sense, it would actually be the tank(s) that would be busy protecting their peers. And, well, if you fight dragons, it might look a bit like this. ;)

The original file is 8004 x 5661. It was digitally painted entirely in Photoshop CS3 and CS5.

Fan Art.

I also wanted to give major shout-outs to not only to the folks on DA that have offered some incredibly helpful critiques on this piece, but also to Grace Liu, John Polidora, Peet Cooper, Paul Richards, Gino Whitehall, and others all of whom helped me strengthen it about ten times over.

Also thanks to those of you that chatted with me on my LiveStream and kept me company on this piece over some very strange hours, including :iconizrien: , :iconcrocodiledreams: , :iconphantom42:, :iconsolusauroraborealis: , and :iconcarryn: , just to name a few. You guys rock. :)

I've always loved worgens... they've been my favourite WoW race since the day of the expansion. And you've portrayed this one just perfectly- every detail just fits together so well! I'm in awe!
Grats on the DD; it's completely well-deserved! :squee: :heart:

This, my friend, is by far one of the best deviations based on World of Warcraft that I've ever seen in my entire life. Seriously. You have no idea how awesome this looks to me, and to everyone else. It looks like just the brute force of his howl is ripping the ground apart. Now if it doesn't take talent to successfully draw that, then I don't know what the hell does. You have impressed me, along with thousands of other people. This piece of art is certainly worthy of being called a Daily Deviation.
