Young Prince Kael'thas by pulyx Young Prince Kael'thas by pulyx
Hello fellas.

Here i am, back at it again.
With Seal Series 2. Starting now!

After seeing how fucked up kael'thas got on the PTR
i decided to make a reminder that he was a good guy someday.

So i present you, Young Kael'thas Prince of the HIGH Elves and one of the 6 of the kirin tor.
(hence the purple clothing =) )

Hope you guys will like it.
Cause i'm sure the GIRLS will.

Yeah, this reminds me that Kael was so good a prince during Warcraft 3 and even before that. He only got fucked up when Blizzard makes the series of WoW. How sad to see a guy like him turns bad. :(
Anyway, your art is totally awesome.

He shouldn't have given up on Jaina, the Gardens of Dalaran was merely a setback.

Reminds me of 40k's Fulgrim, Pre-Heresy. Not that that's a bad thing, exactly the opposite actually.

Hehehe it's the Archetype.
Fallen paladins are a very popular type of characters.  Lord Soth (Dragonlance, ravenloft), Arthas(warcraft), Lanre/Haliax(Name of the Wind) to anem a few are share the fallen champion traits.

Plus, Warcraft drew tons of influence from Warhammer. Warcraft was originally supposed to be a Warhammer game, but Gamesworkshop cancelled their game with Blizzard.
They went on and added their own twist and finished the game indenpendently from GW. =D

Kael'thas was just trying to help his people... in my standards he did nothing wrong. He just got a little bit loopy, that all.

I love this picture. Your art does Kael'thas justice. Despite the bad rap he got in the Burning Crusade expansion I still remember him as a hero. ^_^

I'm a newcomer to the Warcraft universe, and I've only recently finished playing RoC and TFT. Too bad my RoC hanged after chapter 6 of the Human Campaign, that I had no idea whatever happened to Arthas when I see him again in TFT.

Kael'thas blew me right off my set when I first saw him in the Blood Elves campaign- his polite,reserved, honourable and loving demeanour (and a whole heck of feelings that be expressed in words). After sacnning through all the comments for this art I was left heartbroken at his fate. NOOOO why would one such noble hero turn into a power hungry creep? And Illidan too... I rooted for the both of them. Sigh if my rants go on it'll not finish till Boxing Day.

Anyways, it's the best art of Kael'thas I've ever seen. Keep up the good work!

P.S. Can someone give me a pointer or two on where to start on the Warcraft universe? Playing RoC and TFT feels like sucked right into the middle of a cyclone... I'm so confused. Thanks in advance!

Actually I don't listen to/ read alot of lore, but I think that all High elves naturally have blue eyes, the only reason blood elves have green is beacuse there lust for arcane magic.

Better late than never.

High elves too, suck into magic, but in very little proportions. Blood elves, after the sunwell, named themselves Sin'dorei (BE) and went to outland. Their eyes are green because they started to use Demons as a source of magic.

You can see the Burning Orbs on World of Warcraft at Eversong Woods.
