This is a concept that has been about 4-5 years in the making. I had created a sketch around the time the first version of Naxxramas was released during vanilla WoW. Years passed, and I never got around to making the lineart and coloring it because I felt my coloring skills were much too horrendous to bring the image to life the way I wanted it.

Finally, in November 2011, I revisited the original sketch, and decided I was going to redesign the Dreamwalker set (as I had already revised the helm design all those years ago), and simply go nuts with it. I'm pleased with the result, but I was expecting something a little different. Regardless, I'm happy with it.

Time: I'm going to hazard over ~80 hours

Thank you. This piece was particularly challenging for me since I spent so much time on it and I was starting to get impatient. Though, in the end, I'm really pleased with it.

Looks awesome, if I were to give you any constructive criticism on it I'd say the trees dont carry as much feeling of reality as the foreground elements, not that they need to be as detailed, but when I see the character I have no trouble believing her reality but the trees dont feel enough like trees texture-wise to maintain the suspension of disbelief.

Yeah, I should have probably done a little better with the closest tree. The others actually are pretty details, but the coloring is pretty muted variation wise. I think if I did a better job with the ambient light on the closest tree, it would be more cohesive... Maybe, heh.

Over all I do like the color depth and sense of distance. The comment I made is just a general little thing I notice about your trees.

Yeah I know. I painted the background before the character. I guess I didn't think about how much more I could have done to the background after the fact. And I'm not taking your crits negatively, dude. I like getting some sort of feedback to think about, so long as its given appropriately. :P

Still trying to keep drawing everyday. Kinda hard to keep moving since I keep looking at older stuff or I keep trying to plan on my whole comic thing... *sigh*

Best you can do is to keep focused on producing something. If your comic idea keeps you going then all the better.

Gonna keep trying. And gonna try to get away from fanart. It's hard though. I always feel like I have to pay tribute with fanart when I feel inspired by something...
