FINISHED! (with 30mins to spare)
God I love deadlines. There's nothing like the mad scramble to meet a deadline. Your brain is surging, your mind is focused purely on the task, and you do everything in your power to just get the job done.
So here is the final I sent to Blizzard for the calendar contest, featuring one of my favourite game characters of all time. Sylvanas' armour design was made by Glenn Rane - who is such a sick artist and whom I met this summer. All of those guys KNOW how to make something cool. Love them so much.
Also, if you've noticed, I had to crop the image for time reasons, so the final is different than the original sketch I put up. Ah well.. live and learn.
*edit* OHhhh man are you serious?!? This is my first DD
and it happens on the 7th (my favourite number)! Thank you so much - I'll try to read through all the comments when I can! Glad some out there digs it. Cheers
