Daily Deviation

Given 2009-11-11
Night Elf - Death Knight by *Ketka. From the suggester: "The motion in this piece is just sublime. I can feel the wind, the speed and the fierce roaring of the beast. Amazing and savage!" ( Suggested by Atramina and Featured by aunjuli )
The piece has a great sense of depth and speed through varying degrees of blurring, emphasizing the speed at white the rider must be traveling. The subtle details such as the armour's crafting and the bleeding of the sword really help to sell the idea of speed.

The palette is a muted cold one devoid of too much colour, hinting at a Nordic winterly scene, subtle tree outlines suggest maybe a small forest.

Overall this is a well executed scene showcasing the artist's technical skills as well as their eye for detail, seen through the consistent theme in the design of the armor of the rider and her Lion.

Excellent work :)

The Artist thought this was FAIR

this has to be one of the most realistic pieces I have seen of fan art that is also in action and brings you into the drawing. The fur from the tiger is soo well drawn and every detail of the armor on both the tiger and the Night elf are simply stunning. The Night Elf sword looks soo awesome with its blue glow. I also think the tattered cape fits quite nicely in the artwork. The skulls on the tiger give it such a unique touch to this making me wish they had a death knight tiger in the game.
