The days when great troll empires stretched across ancient
The savage trolls of Azeroth are infamous for their cruelty, dark mysticism, and seething hatred for all other races.
Kalimdor are long past. Millennia of war and internal strife have stripped these nations of their power, lands, and glory. As Azeroth recovers from the destruction of the Cataclysm, the world's divided troll populations face a bleak future. These dark times have spurred the trolls of the Zandalar, the historically wise and scholarly tribe from which all trolls originated, to take drastic action. They have embarked on a bold crusade to save their race by uniting trolls into a single mighty empire. With the Zandalari's aid, the fallen capitals of the Gurubashi and Amani nations -- Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman -- are already rebuilding, replenishing their forces for a bloody campaign to expand their territories.....

from Blizzard offical history board~~

the work spend me more time(about a week) to collect the background and characters of the troll,so many dungons and boss they have,it seem the troll is the most popular enemy in Azeroth,so it is difficult to choose a whole story to rope the troll, but the animal worship is going trough all troll story,so I make the annmal half-god to be main characters in this pic,and the fight to bugs and high-elves history should not be forgoten,and the sunken temple and Zul-farrak is the early classic dungons and then the others is waiting for you to found out~~

hope you like this pic~~~

This art-style seems so hauntedly familar!

What kind of art-style is it? Where did it come from? And where did you learned how to draw something like this?
So much detail, I blink and find something I have seen before. Simply amazing.
