Prophet Velen, The Divine by pulyx Prophet Velen, The Divine by pulyx
Hello fellas!

Phew!
I think this is one of the drawings that took me the most to finish.
I started it like...wwaaaay before the expansion launched.
And decided and got of my ass to do it today.
It got to point it wasn't fun to paint it. I fucked up the process.
So i decided to go back and do 90% of it again.
And it was totally worth it.
hahaha as you've may noticed. I'm a total Bloom/HDR effect addict. It makes things "magical" in my opinion.

And talking about magic...
This my friends, is Velen. Velen is the prophet who saved the draenei from corruption and also saved them from the destruction of the draenei's or Eredar's home planet, Argus.
Obviously, this fella is one tough oldman.
I think he'll be one of those Racial Leaders no one was able to kill. He's amazingly powerful and he's a priest. So i wouldn't find it wierd if no one ever got to kill him ever.

About his design, i say completely awesome.
It may not seem so, but he's huge. (like the other draenei)
And his armor is very imposing. (and annoying to draw >_<;)

But anyway.
This one was totally done on the PC.
I dont' have any idea how many hours i put into it.
But since it took me a partial startover, i'll guess about 12 hours.
All done by me.
Photoshop CS2 and Painter IX.

So,
I hope you guys will like it!
Thanks!!
Puly

For anybody even thinking about taking on this guy, I think I should say this. "An unwise decision." ;D

Given that I'm an exceedingly proud Draenei... yeah. You NAILED him artistically.

The internet needs more art of Velen; if it were even to be HALF as awesome as this, it'd be unbelievable.

In response: No, raid groups have taken out Velen. Then again, raid groups have started taking out Thrall and Vol'jin in one go, with a minimum of casualties. And actually, if you look at him in the game, he's rather skinny by draenei standards...but he's also about 8' tall.

:+fav: because it's Prophet Velen, for crying out loud.

I expect they will be rebuffed once the new expansion comes out. Otherwise it'll get way too easy.

They'd almost have to be.  And I suspect that there will be more elite guards implemented. (For example, the Shields—the "royal guards" of the Exodar—are currently level 60, non-elite.  This will probably change in the future.)

Hell yea, Velen's indefinitely a badass. First heard of him from one of the WoW novels, and then saw him in-game. For an old bearded dude, I'm sure he can set his fair share of ass ablaze. You really got him down good! :thumbsup:

Not too many good draenei pics around, but this and your evil-looking paladin one do them the badass-ness they deserve(despite being Alliance >.< ). You should definitely do more.

Insta-fav like a mofo. ^^

Great picture you created there.

One thing though, why is his skin purple? In the books he is said to have a pale type of skin, like a sick human's.
