Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider by pulyx Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider by pulyx
Pheeeeeeeeew
FINALLY i'm done.
And FINALLY i was able to do a decent Kael'thas.
Man, my eyes are totally fried hahaha. Literally, he fireballed them.



Ok. So,
This is Kael'thas. Prince (or king?) of the Blood Elves, A good guy really, but with an really strong addiction to magic.
Prince Kael'thas is a beloved leader, for he stood with his people in their darkest days.
A very proiminent mage from the Kirin Tor (an organization who formed wizards like Aegwynn (medivh's mom), Medivh and Antonidas) he saw his people slaughtered by Arthas' forces in Silvermoon city, in Quel'thalas.
Then came illidan, the jive master, and poor kael'thas, like the crackhead he is, fell for it.
Plunging in a source of demonic energies to quench his, and his people's thirst for arcane magic. Were forced to make "erroneous" alliances.
He now, resides in the Tempest Keep, where he holds the holy people of the Naaru hostage and drains for the keep an unimaginable amount of power.

He'll be the Last boss there. You can expect a tough fight.


hehe ok, now that i got the lore out of the way...
It was cool, like arthas, planned through Kika's class and done here (at home).


Summing up,
8 or 9 Hours
Photoshop CS and Painter IX
All done by me.


Hope ya guys dig it.

(poor fella, he didn't get the throne, the power OR the girl)

Prince Kael...how sad...he never heard of meditation? that is what the Night Elves do when they feel a need for something like "power"...it is funny when Arthas makes reference to Kael about Jaina how Jaina chose Arthas and not him...hahaha...and they probably know this...but demonic magic corrupts you...

That made my day, XD

A beautiful picture. I love his expression he has.
My #1 goal for WoW is getting the Phoenix mount off him :XD:

Hmmm maybe,
i've tried sketching him. But nothing good came out yet. =)
But i think i might pass the chance.
There are lots of other cool characters to take on and 3 kaels is enough hehe

I really felt sorry for this guy for 1) how deformed he was in Magisters' Terrace and 2) how I had to kill him for good.

Seriously, I've got a geared mage so I ended up the last one alive on my first fight with Kael'thas in there and I kept getting all emotional and nerdy as I blew the living daylights out of him.

You know he's dead when a quest has you retrieve his head, as it does.

True, but how come he appears in Sunwell Plateau to summon Kil'Jaeden? I'm so confused...

In the official raid, does he show up there? D:

I blame respawns.

:iconunhinged-arrogance:
Unhinged-Arrogance Featured By Owner May 16, 2008  Student General Artist
He's not killable, but he's summoning Kil'Jaeden while the rest of the raid is killing Eredar shadowcasters. Then once Kil'Jaeden is summoned, I think he kills Kael, or Kael is killed with the intrusion of Kalecgos and Anveena. Not sure which is which but I would like to find out for certain.

Well he dies, and given that he seems to have come back one too many times this is when I say good riddance.

But so much canonical villain involvement does get me excited for Wrath of the Lich King. Blizzard's finally gonna make WoW into a story, not just an adventure.

Yeah, with Arthas going to be your nemesis from the beginning to end will make it seem more like you are in it then just playing a game that you can fool around in.
