World of Warcraft Tribute Book Koori and Lucios by pulyx World of Warcraft Tribute Book Koori and Lucios by pulyx
So guys
This is one of the comissions i had backed up due to all the trouble my family has been going through.

This is a gift from :iconkooriwow: to one of her world of warcraft friends.
Lucios was her tutor in the arts of Priest mastering in World of Warcraft and taught her the tips and tricks of the class.

And he was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Decease and doesn't have much time on his hands. So she wanted me to honor their friendship (which grew outside the game) with this picture.

It depicts her character as a disciple of his character.
Him teaching her "power word: Shield" =)
That frog and squirrel are having a ball!

Anyway fellas.
Hope you guys dig it!

It's already on blizz' frontpage =D
Woot!

This was selected for the World of Warcraft Tribute book by Udon, so naturally:

Minha primeira personagem - e meu main até hoje - foi uma priest (quando a criei, draenei, atualmente Troll). Joguei com ela até o level 70 sem saber absolutamente nada do que eu estava fazendo, até que conheci um outro priest, dwarf, que me ensinou tudo que eu sei sobre o jogo, e que é meu amigo querido até hoje. Apesar da imagem ser de uma night elf, não teve como não lembrar dos bons tempos quando eu tava começando... bateu saudades daquela época.

Linda arte, parabéns por cria-la :)

Se voce me autorizar, gostaria de divulgar esse deviantart e essa imagem no facebook da Girl in Game (www.facebook.com/girlingameonl…, obviamente dando todos os devidos créditos para ti. Foi muito legal notar que o artista que fez algo que me trouxe tão boas recordações era brasileiro também. ^^

Wow, I've had commissions before and I gotta say that's quite higher than anything I've ever paid before and I understand why because you do great work. If  it's alright for me to ask because I've always wondered on great art like this and I know it varies amongst artists. How long does a piece like this take you?   What program do you use? I take it both drawing and painting both are from a stylus?

My friend passed away this morning after his long battle with ALS. Your picture reopened our friendship. The last eight months we leveled his priest up in WoW, ran heroics and even a few raids. More importantly spoke to each other on almost a daily basis. I’m going to miss him something terrible. Thank you once again for making this wonderful tribute. ~ Theresa

It was very kind of you to do that for her. If anyone would do her the justice of remembering her friend it would be you. Great work, and give my regards to Koori and Lucios. It's never easy to have a friend who becomes ill.

I just made it possible for her because i think her friend deserves it.

I’ve delayed posting my OMG IT’S AWESOME comment until I heard back from Lucios, he got the framed picture I sent yesterday and loved it. Thank you so much for the wonderful tribute to our friendship Paulo.

I’ve always considered Lucios my ‘teacher’ in priestly ways, and valued his advice on the class long after he was able to keep up with us raid wide. This picture represents that relationship. Lucios and I met when our guilds started raiding together in MC back in September of 2005. We spent many hours in our prophecy armor, and to this day I have the complete set still in my bank. Not sure when our friendship extended beyond what bosses are we going to kill today? But it did. Due to family stuff his play time in BC was greatly reduced but we still managed to keep in touch and have fun in game when he could escape for a few hours. Then he got sick, and playing became a little harder to do but we managed. And then he stopped playing all together. One lesson I took away from all this is to treasure your friends, because not everyone will put up with you ;)

I will admit, awesome! I will also admit that I thought the squirrel was a worm at first. Maybe it was because the light around it kinda blocked the figure a bit.

I really like the colours. It's very pretty. Wish I could colour like you. :) I'm just not solidly steady with techniques. I guess I'm still a baby to digital painting.
