Illidan by silverz777 Illidan by silverz777
Yayyyy dooonnne

Some time I'm sure there are improvements I could make. But I doubt I'll go back to it:P

Illidan Stormrage from WoW
Oil on canvas
13 x 20 ish
Overall...this took somewhere from 25 to 35 hours I think

Hope you like it!
Download it to see

Edit: The first picture was a bit washed out looking, even compared to all the WIPs, so I fixed it to TRY and represent how it looks in person

Oh, right, Reference here
omg comparing to the original makes me sad D:

unbelievable that someone really got the idea of doing this and omg really managed it! i am overwheelmed!!! i love, no; absolute ADORE the original picture maybe cause i do love illidan so much :) the black temple was something holy for me and when i go there from time to time i use to take a minute just enjoying the atmosphere... but i often thought that the original pic was way too dark (it was my desktop pic for years :) this thought had looong time to develope) and yours corrected it in a very satisfying way. i am impressed how sharp and detailed the warglaives look and i am thrilled by their colors and glow which leads the focus on them. i have so much respect for the quality and details of the original picture that i would never have had the idea of copying it.
so i pay my humble tribute here and hope to find the confidence to even try an illidan pic somewhen...

sincerely yours, jesayah

ps: by checking your gallery i found the developing pictures of this one and the OMFG factor grew bigger by every single step. in my opinion some of the sooner pics show more of your crazy technique because they reveal HOW many details you worked out.
pps: pls ignore spelling or grammar mistakes, this is not my native language.

I like the grim lighting in this piece. It helps the door of the castle and the swords stand out.

Aww man, WoW fan art! This is so nostalgic though, I used to love this game! Personally, I think you did a WONDERFUL job so you shouldn't feel sad! Don't compare it to the original! Blizzard has crazy artists anyways :XD: Plus, I like the blueness to this one! His weapons are especially awesome. They stand out really well :D Beautiful work! Only thing is I think it could use more contrast. Great job though! :heart:

Thanks :) I keep being impressed with myself when I look at this because I can see all the crazy tiny details I managed to get in. Yeah, this picture of it is a little washed out, so it's not as bad on the contrast in person. I don't know how to get a perfect picture that accurately records what it looks like =/ But thanks again, so much ^^

I know the feeling :) Ooh I see, well that's good at least! Sounds like you'd just need either good lighting or a decent camera to take a picture of it? Still not the same though of course lol
You're welcome! :meow:

WOW! I absolutely love this! Very well done. As a WoW player, it brings back war flash backs of us getting killed by him... a lot. :P well done!

Wonderfully detailed and epic. Nicely composed.But something about this piece feeals washed out - it looks more like a watercolour than an oil painting. Maybe a stronger use of colours would help.

Feel free to ignore - just noticed the desire for a critique and that was the only one I could think of.

Thanks. And yeah I do see that, but if you look at the WIP photos, it is a lot darker. To get good lighting, I took the painting outside for the final photo, and I used a different, much higher quality camera, so I think it's mostly those factors
