Here's another card painting (created in Adobe Photoshop) from the recently release War of the Ancients set for World of Warcraft. It depicts a Tauren warrior, guarding a location called The Caverns of Time. Like the previous post, it's another relatively warm painting with a bright, hot color in the background. That pink hue worked well as edge lighting for the Tauren character.
This was one of those illustrations that just flowed out almost effortlessly. Sometimes a painting can be a real struggle from start to finish, involving a lot of tweaking and re-painting. This one went smoothly from start to finish... a rare treat!
