About a year and a half ago I got an itch to paint World of Warcraft races, the way I'd like them to be. This was more than a little conceited as I assumed my versions would be better, turns out they are just different and even then, unfamiliar viewers would struggle to see the differences. That part of the exercise was really instructive. I learned a lot about why Blizzard's great character models look the way they do as I researched them during the project. Kudos, Blizzard!
