I'm aware of the note on Blizzard's decisions.
I'm faving this one for the way Frostmourne looks - I loath the helmet. It doesn't look like the one I've seen in WC3. Meh...

There's a guy called Lionel Adoom uploaded this artwork to a Japanese art community.

Here's the link:

Do you start with black and white then add color or do you paint in color all the way?
Reply
:iconnamesjames:
namesjames Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011
At the very start I tend to do the layout in black and white, but I quickly add colour once I have a composition I like. The final is typically then a much more refined version of the rough, all done in colour.

I should say that my process and approach change depending on the piece (or just how I'm feeling at the time).

LOL at "NOTE", you are above all critics. Anything wrong its Blizzard fault, even "etc.", just the rest its yours. What rest ?!
Reply
:iconnamesjames:
namesjames Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2011
The 'rest' would be:

The Composition
The Rendering
The Anatomy
The use of Light and Shadow
The use of Perspective
The use of Colour

I can only assume you aren't an artist otherwise that would have been clear.

I added that note because I was getting comments telling me that I'd put the wrong armor on the wrong race/character etc. Those things are beyond my control. Everything else is mine though and you're welcome to comment on them if you wish.
