Against Deathwing by Netarliargus Against Deathwing by Netarliargus
This is a piece for :icontheseeker2: of his character, the Black Dragon Sorelstrasz (Sorel) fighting the dragon Aspect of Death, Deathwing, above the city of Stormwind. It's a scene from his fanfiction, you can read the story right here: [link]

You'd think that after being a player of World of Warcraft for about seven years it was high time to actually make something about it. That said, Deathwing's unique design sure was a challenge to draw.

Sorrel belongs to :icontheseeker2:
Deathwing belongs to Blizzard
Art belongs to me.

Aren't you glad Dragons are getting more attention in movies/books/games these days too.

Thanks,

He's also a popular dragon judging by how many people draw him.
Hmh, and what about Alduin? The Black Dragon from Skyrim?

Alduin is also really cool! i didn't played Skyrim yet but i saw many images of him *3*
he looks amazing :U but sad thing is that you probably have to kill him in the game ._.

Hmh, haven't seen the ending yet, but yes, you'll have to "stop" him somehow.

I think this is my favourite of your's yet. I like red. I like dragons. I like red dragons.

Fantastic lighting, great details, especially on Deathwing. All that glowing shizz must have taken some time.

You seem to have a liking for stuff that's red and on fire or breathe fire. Hah, just like a Dragon. :D
Yes, all that lava, all those little cracks, I've spend more time on him then I did on the rest of the drawing combined.

I absolutely loved how this turned out. The lighting really puts this into perspective for me. This picture perfectly depicts the war between these two characters quite nicely! I can see the anger within Sorel as he stands up against the ones who were responsible for what he has become. In contrast to what I've seen, the colors of Sorelstrasz are fairly accurate. If they were any darker it would be difficult to really see the finer details that you added (scales and such). Thank you for doing this, Netarliargus. And thanks again for reading The Seeker. You have my deepest of gratitude. :)

The hting that stands out to me is the fact that Deathwing now has a blade on his chin.

I am now terrified

I still think that thing should be lootable, tough I think one of the earlier Warrior sets had a big metal chin as well.

This is great. Love the fire and the use of colors...

But if that guy's a black dragon, shouldn't he be darker? Like a sleek black or something like that?
Reply
:iconnetarliargus:
Netarliargus Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2011
They're more brownish-red then black in WoW and combined with the orange hue from a fire...I guess it makes them look a bit on the red side.
