Tauren Warrior by gyrfalconthegray Tauren Warrior by gyrfalconthegray
Full View PLS so you can see all the little details!

I started this when I was subbing for the art teacher on Friday. It looked kinda good so I just kept going with it. MMMMMMMooooo!
(For those who don't know, Tauren are a race of minotaur-like creatures in the Warcraft Universe. Think Native American cows...) ;p

Tauren c. Blizzard Entertainment

EDIT: did some tweaking to the curves and recropped so the whole spear (which wasn't quite finished before) is in the picture. It's a little bit bottom heavy, because this is the type of illustration that is designed to have text going around it. :)

Couldn't see him on a small view - damn glad I full-viewed! Again - beautiful anatomy (you anatomy-freak!!! :hug: :laughing: ) And he's all furry... :giggle:

I could see something like this coming straight out of the Monster Manual - you really could do this as a living, you know?

Yay! Anatomy freaks unite! :w00t: :o Er... k been a long week... guess I'm a bit punchy. I've been HTML wrangling for too many days straight. You know, I wanted to do creature/prop design like for movies and stuff... once upon a time. But all my training was in engineering not art. Ah well. :-)

Thanks! I'm getting much better at weapons. I used to be rather hopeless, but I've been practicing. I was rather rediculously pleased with how the feather came out. :D

Thanks! I just wish I had some sort of background for it, since I can't submit it to Epi without one. *sigh* It's not really intended to be a background sort of picture, since it is intended to be like one of those B&W character illos you see in RP books and stuff. Ah well. Perhaps another time.

*Full view* Gee you sure weren't kidding about the details! Damned impressive! :clap: :worship:

I love his hunched shoulders, makes me think of Bison, which would fit into the whole "Native American Cow" reference you made, hehe.

Great pic!

:icongyrfalconthegray:

Yeah the hunched shoulders and thrust forward neck is actually part of the creature design, at least from the artwork I have seen from Blizz. I did this pic with a 0.5mm mechanical pencil, which is how I was able to do all that detail. Thanks for the comment! :)

You know, the style of this one reminds me heavily of the way the Blizzard concept artists draw, which is pretty convenient, seeing as how this guy's from Warcraft!!

Anyway, this looks really cool. I love the sheer massiveness and power you conveyed here. Good job with all the muscling detail, I find that hard to do correctly. Very nice work!

Heh... well I was thinking quite about about warcraft artwork when I did it, and I have some of the RPG books now, which have art in them, although I drew the picture without any specific reference. Anatomy is one of my favorite things to draw. I was pretty happy that this time when I drew the legs I felt more like I actually knew what I was doing rather than just guessing and maybe getting it right and maybe not. ;-)
