Was meaning to post this last night but I fell asleep! Sorry!
My name's Joe, I'm a recent graduate in Games Art from England. I love all things stylised (what a loose term!) - It's what I do best in my opinion. I haven't had the chance to do as much of it as I would have liked whilst working on my degree.
Since the contest was announced I worked on idea generation, not my strongest suite so it takes me a while to create ideas. Although I quickly fixated on the idea of taking existing Warcraft architecture - something strongly related to a race (night elf, humans, orcs etc) and then 'Legion-ifying' it.
The legion have decided to empower themselves with night elves sacred Moonwells. Invading the lands of Teldrassil, Moonglade and the likes.
Let's take some inspiration -
This is the most 'legion' place in the current expansion in my opinion. Using this area as my basis for 'legion-ifying' Teldrassil and the moonwells.
Not a strong point of mine - but here goes!
Here's the initial concept I'll be expanding from. The moonwell is a tough center, resisting the legions influence - but eventually it will fall.
I want to get to 3D'ing as quick as possible. But I usually rush too quick! so I'm spending the rest of the day fleshing out this environment in photoshop and such.
