Fleshing out (heh) the physicality of an undead character. He’s severely emaciated and picking out where bones should be prominent or even visible through the surface of his skin is pretty fun.
Character Sheets I developed to produce reference models of two characters I intend to use for a future project based on the Warcraft franchise.
Not really going for anything here. Doodling for the fun of it and playing with colors to make the stuff I post more interesting.
I always go back to this character– Kaeska the Blood Elf Rogue.
Was planning a trip to TN to meet a friend. Not feeling up to it but I’m hoping this doodle of his Troll in Warcraft makes up for it.
I need to do some non-Warcraft subjects.
Created in Photoshop.
Not painting nearly as often as I should. Sometimes I think I’d get more done if I focused less on line art and just carved out shapes from colors instead. Illustrated in Sketchable.
In life, none were more loyal to the crown of Lordaeron than the knight who would follow his prince into undeath. When the fallen prince of Lordaeron became the Lich King, the knight was made into Sigar Dreadhowl, a Death Knight known for a piercing, soul-shattering wail that rivaled that of any Banshee in the Scourge’s employ.
Although the Lich King would fall, Sigar feigned enmity toward his former master, infiltrating the Horde and waited. Through subtle machination, he convinced a band of heroes– veterans of the Horde banded together to stand against any and all that threatened it– to bring about the return of the Lich King’s unholy reign. They learned too late what their actions had wrought.
They were the first to stand against the ascension of an even more powerful Lich King, and as reward for their valor, were the first to fall.
Rewarded for his duplicity and loyalty, Sigar Dreadhowl was named Baron of the Scourge, bestowed with the Helm of Dominion, and tasked to server as the Lich King’s own right hand.
His first act as Baron of the Scourge– Raising the heroes he had deceived and slain into the Lich King’s greatest champions.
This piece was a long time coming. Each of these are taking longer and longer to finish. I aim to be swifter from this point out, but I may put this project on ice for a bit and work on some different things that don’t require as much research and planning.
I’ve begun streaming more regularly, and I’m putting most of my new stuff on Patreon where they sit for a week while patrons have first look at them. Then I’ll upload them here. Here’s how you can keep track of what I’m working on:
Here are my sketches from last week’s Patron stream. From here on out, my supporters on Patreon will get early access to any of my works from a Twitch stream until I make them public a week later. Then they’ll show up here for anyone to see at any time!
I stream once a week and work on a variety of ideas. I often take suggestions like these from the audience.
To see what and when I’m streaming next, find me at twitch.tv/mlneidig.
My supporters at Patreon get first look at my stuff, so if you miss a stream you can always consider pledging your supporting at patreon.com/mlneidig.
‘Till next time!
These are the sketches that I did on request during my Twitch stream on March 4th.
Now, these were technically post-stream, but I still had a lot of fun with them. One of my friends in WoW has a character who lost part of his arm and has a prosthetic that feels like it came out of the Jaime Lannister collection. Took the liberty to do some conceptualizing.
