well I did this piece for the Blizzard Art Contest; sure you can imagine how surprised I was when I realized that my country is not allowed to submit something...just when I wanted to upload it
it shows a young bloodelf gal trying out her new sword on a wormies head
well hope you like it, critics welcome
here`s a second pic I did for the contest, now this will become a character of a pen and paper rpg a friend and I are going to create
the giant bird is for an upcoming rpg, called DISSONANCE ( Marco posted some characters for the game long time ago ), for which I did some creature designs

Sorry to hear you couldn't enter. It looks fantastic!
ah, feels good to wake up and read some nice postings hehe thx guys
@ Rhineville: hm nice idea but I don`t know too much friends in the few countries which are allowed to the contest
This is a solid piece. the creature is superb.
Great job, bud.
and what is this "country not allowed" crap, btw?
is geography an issue with artwork/artists in Blizzard?
that`s silly....where are you from? and why isn`t your country a legit
country according to Blizzard?
thx for the replies
@ chuck mate: well I really have no idea why there is this country restriction, tried to find an answer yesterday but no chance
I`m from Austria...so I thought I should send it under "Australia", most people don`t get the difference
@Hookswords: yeah more gore is always better muahaha...but I just wasn`t to sure about the juice splashing around
Great piece! I love the creature's face and the movement of the elf. One crit would be that the blood-stream is a little to soft and comes across as more of a vapor than a liquid.
"Baby, you make me wish I had three hands!"
Austria isn`t allowed in Blizzard`s competitions?
what`s next? Age restrictions? Race ? Color of skin? Religion? Gender bias?
i really can`t see why any willing artist (no matter where he`s from..) shouldn`t be able to take part in an ART competition.
"THIS CONTEST IS OPEN ONLY TO RESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, CANADA (EXCLUDING THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC), AUSTRALIA, FRANCE, GERMANY, THE REPUBLIC OF KOREA, NEW ZEALAND, SINGAPORE, AND THE UNITED KINGDOM..."
the text from the blizz-page...Quebec I`m feeling with you
at least it was a good practice doing this piece
nice piece, very nice, love the hair
thx for the kind words, I`m happy that you like it
question: what`s with the feeling of the room? does the parts in the front look like the are closer to the viewer? and any suggestions about these blood fountain?
@asuryan: jo mei mia hoizhockabuam ausn Lederhosnlond vastengan uns hoit -immer noch verstanden?
beauty, man. The only thing I'd like to see different is the yellow blood look more defined and less like misty hazy light, and maybe even trail some of it towards the sword. Damn fine though.
The girl's expression looks more curious than combative, but maybe she's just that much of a badass
im lovin it.
DavePalumbo: yeah you`re double right; I think I`ll rework the blood and...yes, she just is such a badass
Clogik: thx man always good to hear that
I did a little update at the top
updated the thread with an other creature for Dissonance, hope you like
