Mauv’ got her face blown off by an explosive shot during a ‘training exercise’.
This was a warm-up to starting commissions back up this morning. Art’s back on the proper move- outside stress was keeping me from doing anything that required more than twenty minutes to complete.

This is ooold art but I was glancing at it and decided since I can’t sleep, I’d tweak her colour palette just to see how it’d turn out, and then I tweaked a few bits to make them slightly less wonky. I kinda like it. Texture makes her skin look slightly odd, maybe too luminescent, but she’s definitely more dead looking than the old one.

Rblob because I always post when everyone’s asleep or something and look at her adorable lingerie, damn it.

I dunno. Felt like doodling some stylised skinniness and pointiness or something. 
I spend way too much time trying to fix even quick doodles.

I could not allow this to sit around with a plain white border. So, I improvised. I think I made it a tad less boring, at least.

coconuttygrey asked: What do you love most about undead? What about trolls?

What I really enjoy about the Forsaken is how amusing they are in the game. They’re these comically evil little shits with all the trappings of the most pretentious goth who detests everything. But at the same time they’re a real threat, and one to be reckoned with. I don’t normally care much about zombies to be honest, but the Forsaken aren’t mindless shamblers, they’re quite intelligent and shrewd. A lot of the old world quests (and plenty of the new) had some hilariously grimdark NPCs and I’d sit there going ‘omg this guy is ridiculous’. There’s that one underwater spy you can pull up and kill as Alliance at the dwarf outpost in Howling Fjord who drops a journal carrying on about the sweet taste of orphan tears and shit until he realises his companions have totally forgotten him and then it just devolves into emo woe. I love it. But I also am a sucker for the dark gothic aesthetic they’ve got going on, no matter how tropey it is. I enjoy how wrecked and defiant and dickish they are.

As for trolls, you know I’m not sure. I would see art of them now and then before I ever played and I thought they looked neat. I’m a sucker for their huge ears and long, lanky bodies and huge tusks. I also really like all the south American mythos and architecture and design that’s gone into them, especially since most people seem to miss that in favour of the endless focus on voodoo and the Caribbean accent and the laid-back island stoner thing they’ve got going on. The mayan and aztec influences really hook me, particularly the perpetually angry gods requiring constant appeasement, the hallucinogenic shamanism and spirit-walking, blood sacrifices and head-hunting that were all an intrinsic part of ancient Mayan life. I always felt troll shammies should have jaguar travel forms rather than wolf, because while north American and European shamanism venerated the wolf as their symbol of strength and spiritual connection to the land, Myans venerated the jaguar in the same way. It would’ve been so appropriate and also a neat little racial flavour to set orc and troll shammies apart.

Anyway, that’s my thoughts as best as I can think of them just now. For Forsaken it’s the dark brooding aesthetics and absurd evilness and for trolls it’s the intense ancient cultural aesthetics and mythos.

And this time I’ll actually post this to my tumblr instead of privately. :P
