Repel the Tides by Andantonius Repel the Tides by Andantonius
:star: Check out the tutorial here! [link] :star:

Finished at last! Some good ol' classic Warcraft art, a Night Elf Hunter kicking some Naga nads in Azshara!

This took two crazy weeks to finish in between freelance, probably the most complex piece I've done to date, and I think it's much improved over the last piece I attempted like this. I've been trying to focus more on the composition and drawing stages of my images lately, and I think it's resulting in much better finishes.

Also, painting scales is a silly thing.

I also saved 61 progress shots of this, so expect some form of tutorial up in the near future.

Thanks for looking! :)

I don't know if you're aware or not, but there is a group using this image as promotion for their schooling and classes. I don't know if you're associated with them, but their name is "The Art Department"([link]. If not, you might want to make them aware that you know they are using your stuff.

I hope this isn't antagonistic if they have legitimate rights to use it, or if you are affiliated with them, but I wouldn't want them to get away with it either if you didn't give them the permission to use it.

Hey there, thanks for the heads up! They're actually fine to use the image, The Art Department is the school I attended so they're showing some of that work on their page. Thanks for letting me know though, glad to know people are keeping an eye out! :)

Good to know! I've just seen too many people have their stuff ripped without credit and would hate it to happen to me too. Very well done piece, by the way!

I read in your tutorial that you really didn't want to go back and do the scales but you did anyway to make sure you had the best possible painting... it paid off man. Looks incredible.

Really appreciate the tutorial as well, you touch on the main thing I need to work on ... having patience.
