Warcraft Night Elf Nightfafnir by Lawrichai Warcraft Night Elf Nightfafnir by Lawrichai
"...don't go wasting your emotions, lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion, lay all your love on me..."

Photoshop
1042 x 417 
Jan 2011

...yeah, it all started with an ABBA song and a request for this drawing. All I was suppose to do was to redraw a friend's forum signature, but I got so much into it that I ended up with a very detailed illustration.

Nightfafnir was a fictionnal character from the game "World of Warcraft", played by a friend of mine. (I say "was" because she's been transformed into a Worgen Male when Cataclysm came out) ;)

To get this drawing done, I used three models:

:iconkirra64: This beautiful picture from Kirra64 fav.me/d143oz4

:iconlohey: ...this one from Lohey fav.me/d12jr4y

And of course a screenshot of Nightfafnir's head.


I did a little "Making of" for those who were interested into the process of creating Nightfafnir; follow the link --> fav.me/d41ekg5

The hair is absolutely amazing, and the eyes are quite captivating!

Thank you! 
I did spend an awful lot of time on those two elements.
To me, Eyes and Hair are the most important parts of a character ^^

The eyes I can definitely agree on, they are a window to our souls so to say after all.

I focus more on glorious beards than hair though!

Nope
No nipples, no censorship required.
And it's not depicting any sexual act either... 
So all is good

The only thing I am noticing is the thumb on her hand looks a little off. The rest of this is almost flawless though. I love how you made her eyes look like they were glowing but still had life behind them. Most people just give nelfs a lifeless white demon eye look. This is lovely. :)

To me, the eyes are often one of the most important detail of my illustrations. 
I always spend a lot of time on them.

I would love for you to do a How To Video for stuff like this! (If you haven't already)  This is absolutely gorgeous!  I saw the Making of it but of course, as a beginner at Photoshop, I wish to learn how to make such a lovely pic!  Been searching all over Youtube and just haven't found that one.

Making a video of an illustration in the making takes an awful lot of place on your computer because of the hours and hours of recording needed .  As I can take between a month and several years to complete an illustration, that would just kill my hard drive.

That's why I'd rather make static " making of " instead.


As for doing art through Photoshop, you need to experiment a lot with the basic tools and do so with the help of a graphic tablet. I don't use tons of ready made brushes and textures and filters like most of my peers. Mind you, it's one reason why I take so long to finish a piece, but it's how I like to work.
My favorite tools are the use of " dodge and burn " and a color blending smudge.
I abuse of those three all the time ;)

Either way, it is completely amazing and I totally wish I knew how to do all that kind of stuff!  I am envious of you!  I'm simply a self taught noob and have no clue what I am doing half the time.

Would it be alright with you if I took your picture and made some color moderations to make it look like my character, plus to give myself something to practice on?  I am a huge night elf fan and this is literally one of the best pictures I've seen for one.  Of course, I'll make sure to credit you and what not so you can see my results!

If you use it solely for your private need, go for it.
As long as you link the original art unto your description :)
