I made this work for the Blizzard Art challenge. I really enjoyed working on it since I'm a huge fan of blizz and this is in my opinion (though others have argued) my most complete and best work to day.
I'm also including some of the concept art I did as well as portions of the original drawing, as you can see I only added color digitally and made minor changes, mostly zooming in and adding detail on armor, swords and veins.
For a full info on the story I made behind this you can read about it at my site at http://e7.shanky.com/wordpress/?page_id=66
Thanks to everyone who helped me out: esp Irina and Darkchild and Sir Frost.
Looking forward to the next Blizz contest.
