Samuelian The Bearer by AncientSources Samuelian The Bearer by AncientSources
Another done in my free time of a dwarf warrior in some oldschool armor, within Blizzard's WoW universe.

I love Alterac Valley and miss the days of games going on for days on end (for those vanilla players, know what i mean!) so thought it would be fun to do a painting of it.

great work! Love the angle of this piece.

I remember old Alterac :D I've never been in one for days, but I was in one that lasted soooo long, like... 20 hours I believe. SO SO fun though!

After their first humiliation in their new conference, The Nebraska Cornhuskers got a new fullback, but they couldn't convince him to wear the colors.

I also miss oldschool AV! And WSG... the game changed so much in the 5 years I played, I just couldn't stand it anymore! Been WoW-free for over a year now, but I still miss playing vanilla...!

It's a dwarf! With full long beard and hair ornaments! YES!

Okay, I know it has already been said somewhere before, but this is very well done. I enjoy the cool feel of the overall picture as if day is just breaking lit by the warm sun that is throwing some magnificent color into the sky and the general vicinity. You can tell it has been snowing just from the feel and the general lighting going on. I really like that the Dwarf is mainly in cooler or toned down warm colors as that really makes his bright orange-red beard stand out and brings him into focus even when he is much darker than the background.

Looks like he could stop a raging steamtank with this shield... and laugh about it later while emptying a keg of beer.

Thats awesome. I love how solid and condensed the dwarf looks - like his defence is so strong he is basically invincible, but ready to charge forward like an unstoppable heavy chunk of rock at a moments notice.

I remember the old Alterac Valley days! No-one ever knew what was going on, or how to control the battle. Wonderful chaotic stuff with a genuine sense of adventure (gaming hadn't really seen anything like it before!)

This is a fantastic picture. I love the strange perspective, it helps give the thing a defensive feel; the whole picture is coiled like a spring. Wonderful work :+fav:
