Media: Sakura Micron Liners, Photoshop CS4
Time: 20h+

My hatred burns in the cavernous deeps.
The world heaves with my torment.
Its wretched kingdoms quake beneath my rage.
But at a last the whole of azeroth will break.
And all will burn beneath the shadow of my wings!'


A very long waited for image of Deathwing. Next step to make a light up print for Otakon 2011.

I'm a big fan of this in general, but I noticed I few flaws. Firstly, how the cracks on Deathwing's chest go into what appears to be webbing threw me for a bit of a loop. Also, the color on the magma inside of the chest doesn't match the rest, though there are many valid reasons for it having been done so. Why are there tiny flames coming out of his mouth and nowhere else? Also, I have a bit of a hard time figuring out why the ARMOR has cracks in it on the claws. Lastly, Deathwing / Neltharion is a bit over used. Almost every artist who creates World of Warcraft stuff has done at LEAST one Deathwing.
What do you think?

Wow... I kind of got chills when I looked at this amazing picture

The tone it sets is so overwhelming and dark.
I love it... and so many other pieces you've done.

Just keep doing what you're doing, Brohiem.
If you sell comissions, I may be interested in buying one.

This picture is brilliant, i can't tell you how much I love that eye XD. The glow from his chest reflecting up onto the lower part of the metal jaw is nice, as well as the glow effect around the plates on him, getting darker. Well done 10/10
