I like the personalities in the art. It's more like looking at real people than just bland art. It's like I can see what they are thinking. I see a troll who looks very weary like he's been traveling so long. I see a demon hunter who seems younger and kinda cheesy like he hasn't really seen much of the world yet. I see a lady panda who I bet can handle herself with no problems;she looks like she is a smart one and quick thinking. All of these have their own life. If I win I would like my gnome warrior's portrait done. I don't wear a helm with him so would want his face done. I love this lil guy, he's a fiery pack of awesomeness.
The troll that looks like Robin Williams. <3 So many of these you can really see the character shining through. Love Rune's work!If I won, I don't know which of my characters I'd choose. My main is so ugly that it would ruin a great art piece! lol
I like his use of shading and shadows. I'm also very impressed with the emotion conveyed through the eyes of the black and white image of the girl in the rain/snow. She looks so very determined. If I won I'd want my main Jasteus draenei male retribution paladin done with a similar determined look, maybe a look of determined dread for a task/quest he's about to do, that he doesn't look forward to, but because of his righteous morality, knows he must do.
Oh these are lovely! The style is all it's own and is almost-realistic, which is fantastic. My headshot I'm afraid would be as a bear, which I'm not sure is that interesting :)
Beautiful work, really like the fantasy mixed with a touch of realism. And the backgrounds and accessories are just as excellent. I'm happy to have just been able to see this work. If I had a chance for one of my own, I'd love to see what Rune could do with a female troll hunter and maybe a pet or two.
The thing I like most about Runesael's work is the expressions, you can tell a lot about each character just from the look on their face. If I were to win, I'd love to see my hunter Hannelere and her daughter, and getting to see the affection they have for each other.
I just like the realism most of the drawlings look like they can cause come right out I absolutely adore the Mei one though ^.^
Beautiful work. Love the facial expressions on some of these portraits!
Runesael's work is particularly striking in the greyscaling. I love the detail. If I had a headshot of my main, Tauren Hunter Pyrannor, I would want the focus to be on how long I've played him. I'd love to see an artistic interpretation of 12 straight years of gaming and an achievement score over 24,000. The lines, the scars, the shadowing I imagine would be beautiful. Keep up the excellent work Rune. Can't wait to see more and break a leg with your voice-over work!
Rune has an amazing attention to detail. I've been following him on twitter for a while and it has been a joy to watch him grow. He is able to create things so realistic and yet, retain a distinct style. I can't wait to see where his art takes him!If I were to win, I'd likely request a pic of my character, Lucinde. She's an undead shadow priest who I have had since I was at least 16. I don't RP, but I have had her so long she has developed her own personality and backstory. :)
Smooth shading, barely visible lines, vibrant lighting, none of them without taking too much away from the piecePretty damn nice overall, i myself always find myself overdoing a peculiar aspect of my own drawings and having them suffer and regret it afterwards personaly :s
I love following Runesael's work on Twitter! His colored Warcraft character portraits are my favorite! If I were to win, I would request a WoW portrait of my main character, a Night Elf Hunter, in his amazing & unique style!
All of the work here is done digitally with Photoshop CS-6 and an XP-PEN Artist 22HD tablet. :)
Im really proud of Rune and how far he has come with his art. He amazes me every time he uploads a new piece of art on twitter and is truely a great inspiration to keep practising my art. The way he's able to make every piece individual and amazing is just impressive. And I generally love his style. I'd always wanted a drawing of my main hunter from Rune but I wasnt able to pay for a comission. (not saying prices are to high, no its important for artists like him to have reasonable prices since a lot of work goes into these pieces. Im just a poor student :D ) Anyways I'm glad to see amazing artists featured on this website!
oooooh I like the realism and detail. Too many rely on a simplified art style.
That Troll with the sunglasses looks pretty cool! Would love to have my Demon Hunter drawn like that :3
