'Pain.
Agony.
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.

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

His lava in his skin doesn't have much depth to it. Look at this original concept [link] . See how each "level" of hot is darkened by the next? (yellow is outlined by deep orange, deep orange by red or burnt orange) I think you should try that.

Ww that looks really cool! i love the contrast with the black and the bright, warm colors. It really adds drama to this. Great use of space and the fire/lava(?) came out really nice :D

=3 thank you. He maw was a blast in doing. Out of all of this doing the fire was the most fun in that it could have a life of its own then a set design/movement to it like the rest of him.

The way you described it reminds me of Eris' hair in Dreamwork's Sinbad.
I love the way you think. Movement of that would be awesome to see. >w<

Love his head...those scales are totally awesome. Something about the light from his belly seems off, but not sure how to put it. Other than that, great stuff! Interesting coloring style, with the several graduations of colors.

I know the chest looks a bit well off but I didnt want to go to over the top like I did with his shoulder and mouth mainly for I want to make this a print that can glow and not look to to well odd XD. Also didnt want to much down there detail wise to take away from his face for how wide of an area it is. =3 if that makes any sense XD.
