One of the books describes Auberdine as a dark, grim little port town that had a wary eye on the wild forests of Darkshore. I much prefer your version because there was a time when Auberdine was a very active transportation hub from Darnassus to the rest of the world. I miss the peaceful little place. T_T
As much as I hate elves for what they represent, what they done and in general thier attitude, this is absolutely great picture, I absolutely love how you drawn this place, and it's looking really great.
They were my favorite RP spots on my server. After Cata the sheer amount of death the night elfs were subjected to with little hope of an ending kinda killed that RP for me. I mean, I as a person was sad when I saw Auberdine. Quest givers who had given me my first quests and gear 6 years ago are now dead forever. I can see their corpses on the shore and in the buildings
Oh lord, you still play on an RP server? Poor thing. I've long abandoned any hope I have ever had for decent role play ever since Wrath of the Lich King. In fact, I hated that expansion so much it made me quit for around two years and I only returned back a couple of months ago. Needless to say the world has changed immensely and in most cases it's for the worst. I still remember dying from fatigue and drowning around a dozen times trying to find the damned Darkshore Groupers Gubber Blump sent me to kill on my very first character, a night elf rogue. A character that I still proudly call my main 6 years later. *sigh* I've switched computers so many times by now that I can't even find any of my vintage screenies. Not even sure I have them any more.
This is one of the most amazing, most tasteful and most beautiful Night Elf Artworks I've ever seen. The Mood, the Night Elf Style, the Fantasy Feel, the Colours you use, the Perspective... Just everything in this Artwork fits.
A beautiful piece of art which has been in my favorites for almost two or three years now. Yet you uploaded this 2 days ago... Do you have a second account or is one of you not the real owner of this piece.
