I have this art as 'absolute favorite' for a long time but i just noticed i didn't told you how much i LOVE it. For sure, this is one of the best definitions of the sun king. You really honored his elegance and greatness here. Just flawless! :3
It was such a pleasant surprise to go through your gallery and find this image. I always wished Bliz had a more handsome model of him, but they don't exactly tend to cater to female players. I have such a thing for Illidan/Kael'thas, and in my mind they're both handsome, hah! Wish there were more images like this.
Completely agreed, TBC was the golden age of WoW. I remember being so excited that finally they were making vaguely attractive male characters! If you or anyone else here ever wants to RP or collaborate on a Illidan/Kael'thas story, I would love that person so hard!
A lot of pictures of Kael'thas are drawn to make him appear sexy and seductive, like he thinks he's the sexiest shit ever. They're usually a bit over-the-top. This one, however, WOW. His expression is very natural, not seductive but egotistical.
Well done, VERY well done. Kael is one of my favorite characters and I'm often put off by art that people do of him. I am floored by your portrayal of him.
I know I'm very late commenting, but I'm commenting anyway - I just think it's so cool to see other Kael'thas fans. It's relatively uncommon to find fellow female players on WoW who are also fangirls, and extremely rare to find ones who like the same guys I do.
I'm not familiar with World of Warcraft and by extension this character, but I can tell that it is wonderfully drawn. First, the colors are fantastic, very dark looking. I love the hair and the face and those glowing eyes. The mouth and nose are particularly wonderful and overall this is just a really great piece of art.
