Sure, it's a formidable weapon meant for war, but who wouldn't use it to catch pesky Murlocs in their free time?
I had meant to start working on this much sooner, but had to work on commissions for groceries first and lost track of the time. Next thing I know, I have only two days left before the contest ends. This is also the first full illustration that I've ever completed. It sure was an adventure, and I've learned a few things while working on the technique of painting.
Overall, I'm left with a very sore hand, sleep deprived from the last 24 hours of painting on and off, and kind of hungry. I really forced myself to detail as much as I could without overcrowding this piece, and personally I'm happy with how it's turned out. That, and I can finally close photoshop, this file was lagging out my computer.
