My Burning Land by MagnaStorm My Burning Land by MagnaStorm
IT'S FINALLY DONE.

My Blood Elf paladin Alyndrina. Being badass. with a burning background. Nuff said.

I started this in late August. Finally finished it today, almost 3 months later. WIP can be seen here: [link]

I'm just so happy to have it done I can't decide if I'm really happy with it or if it's just the joy of being done that's making me feel this way. Though I'm kinda feeling that it's a little crowded because of the magic effect.

before anyone says anything about the lens flare; I'd like to think it was used correctly here. I used it to add drama to the picture. THIS is incorrect use of lens flare [link] [link]
Also the sun didn't really look/feel like a sun until I added the flare :/

I would write more about this since I spent quite a while working on it, but I'm too busy finishing up other work right now to spend too much time talking about how I feel about one piece of artwork.

Fantastic! Looks really great, you capture movement well and it's a very powerful looking piece, she appears very powerful.

Good job!

I adore Blood Elves, and I absolutely love this piece. I always feel that Blood Elves are misrepresented on my server since it's a roleplaying one, blagh. D: This entire image just seems to sum up everything about one to me.

I believe the flare was needed to exaggerate the sun, and at the same time, draw attention to her hand.
It might just be me, but i love drawing female characters D:
There's more detail involved, and i'm better at drawing a female more than a male character.

I think it looks great! In fact, I didn't realize it was a lens flare until I read your comments, derrr. xD Nice work.
