    WoW Priest, gift for a friends birthday WIP

    This is a guild mates priest character. It was her birthday earlier this week, and I decided I would draw her character, saying something she tends to say all the time

    I used photo reference for the pose, and am trying to make the gown look like what her character is wearing, which is the masquerade gown.

    It's looking good so far. A few suggestions: make her feet and hands larger
    She looks really tall, did you intend it to be like 9' tall? If not, you may want to enlarge the head to bring the proportion down to human size.
    Her arms are also a tad short. And the legs are really long. You may intend to give her longer legs for aesthetic purpose, but IMO its too long and messing up the proportion.

    Btw, it's good you are using references. You may want to place your drawing side by side with your reference to get a better idea on what's off.

    I actually thought for a nightelf she is quite small.
    Nightelfs are much taller than humans in WoW.

    I see. Never played wow so I wasn't aware of it

    Though on the other hand, are they tall as in slender and long, or tall as in bulky big? The drawing somehow don't feel she's proportionately tall, and head looks small. I'll have to dig up some wow screenshots when I get home

    A female night elf averages 6'6" to 7'2", they have a small amount of bulk, but think more athletic build than bulk. They are not what I would consider thin/slim.

    I do completely agree about the hand and the feet being a bit small, especially the hand on the Right (her left)

    Update

    I enlarged the hand and feet, finished up the line art portion besides clean up here and there as I start to color. I know the clothing is skewed a bit, this was my first attempt at anything this detailed, so I need a better plan of action for more complex designs next time. I started working on the flat color, as well as a bit of the smaller details (the belt doesn't match the set of clothing, but my friends character is wearing it, and I want it to match her).

    I'd suggest modeling the figure and setting up your light source before starting in with color and the particulars of the dress design. It'll be a lot easier to make adjustments before you add those elements than after.

    Sorry but her figure is really not that of a nightelf female. They are very thin (why else do you think 80% of lonely Alliance guys play n811?).
    I think you gave her too much waist and too much boobs for starters.

    I have put two screenshots together so that you can see that your figure resembles a human more than a nightelf. Also, notice the size difference.

    Well, personally I wouldn't go and copy the character models from the game because the anatomy is off, by a lot. Both the female human and NE are 8 heads tall, so that right there is saying something is wrong. Proportions are whack.

    Vara didn't put a human in the image to do a true height comparison, so for all we know, that is the true height of the NE.

    I do, however, agree that she doesn't seem slender enough. I think if you raised her torso up a little bit to give her some more height, it could work, otherwise, just slim her up some more. The waist should be a bit smaller.

    Where did I suggest to copy the in-game models?
    I added them for Vara to see the big differences between n811 females and human females.

    Here is an example of a female nightelf, mind you it's a 3d render
    http:// - cghub. - com - / - images - / - view/ - 67266/*

    I think it illustrates the differences to Vara's image above.

    *wtf cghub doesn't allow hotlinking? my bad.

    Almost Complete

    While the proportions weren't perfect for the night elf I just wanted to complete it for my friend and focus more on proportions on the next piece. I plan to work on the overall shading a bit more on this, and call it done enough to start something new.
