Illidan, The Betrayer by pulyx Illidan, The Betrayer by pulyx
Hello fellas,

It's been a month, and i though i needed to post something for you guys to see.
I waited for the E3 to pass by because Blizzard spawned an awesome wallpaper of Illidan that kind of threw me off and made me feel like "damn...mine sucks so bad". The wallpaper was done by , or Wei Wang (this guy is amazing.)

Anyway, i've been doing this little by little for awhile. I always wanted to make an illidan piece, because he's one of the best character designs i've ever seen. One of the most memorable too.
I did it during class then came home and started painting it.

I'm really excited about the WoW expansion, it's said tha Illidan is the toughest character that is already coded in the game. But still...no match for arthas. A 40-man raid to kill Illidan. Man, this is going to be SO cool.

Also with the revelation of the new race, i already started drawing my Fellas Draenei (most awesome race ever to set foot in azeroth. it's like they're custom made for paladins and mages ^_^. In other words...PERFECT!)

Anyway, summing up:
Everything done by Me.
About 8 hours, Painter IX, Photoshop CS2 with Wacom Intuos3.


(C)Illidan property of Blizzard Entertainment yadda yadda yadda! Enjoy!

Two thumbs up. Illidan looks handsome in this. And, err, what are the Nagas doing in the background? This kinda remins me of the chapter in TFT in which Illidan has to shut the 4 dimensional gates in Outland- Illidan doing his magic stuff and the others defending him. ^.^

Hey guess what! You're inspiring me to draw some Warcraft. Oh dear....XD This should be interesting. I expect pageviews like yours (yeah right). lol....

Love your Illidan. Pretty and grumpy! Hahaha....background reminds me of a blood sunrise...and new powerhungry demon-elf thingy has risen. :)

It is amazing, and beautifully done (I really do say beautifully alot about your work dont I?) but I do agree with the person who said about the green energy, maybe if you were darken it around the edge a bit more? and change it to uberly bright Green, like the Infernals? just an idea.
but even with that its Amazing ^_^

Aw, wish I could color like you... x'D

Wonderful work, though Icouldn't help but think "Eh, Illidan doing gardening magic?" when I first saw it. ^^'
And I kinda like your version better then Blizzard's, like YoukoKali said, doesn't look like he is overmuscled/have taken illegal stuff and the horns look more balanced. :)

Mmm, I saw Illidan and just had to reply. =) I love that man. >.> All my friends think I'm a total geek for squeeling and cuddling my TBC art book when I saw he was on the cover. That and the fact that every time he or his minions yell something in WoW I have to yell back. *Cough* But besides that.

=) Very nice. I like how you didn't over do everything. His muscles don't look like they are gonna burst out from his skin and dance around on their own, and his horns don't look like they are gonna make him fall face first on the ground and get stuck there. The lighting is also spectacular, gives him that evil quality, not that the horns and wings don't do that.

Any ways, keep it up! I love looking at your work.
