Lich King by GAVade Lich King by GAVade
Lich King

My friends are big fans of World of Warcraft so I decided to paint something from WoW based on many discussions....

So here we have the Lich King, I liked his bad ass armour so had to try it out, bit of a deviation in technique for myself as I'm relearning Painter and PS, this is completely digital....

WALLPAPER Version:

EDIT:

I recently submitted this pic to the Blizzard Fan Art program where I've received a nice email from the Associate Community Manager (EU) at Blizzard Europe asking if they could showcase this image in Blizzcon 2009 at Anaheim....!!!!!!!!


SUPER EDIT:

This picture is featured on the main page of Blizzard's WoW SITE! MAIN PAGE! This is what it says:

'New Fan Art: Lich King!
Posted by: Daliniya & Kenzusha | 20/05/09

We’ve added GAVade’s latest creation, Lich King, to the Blizzard Fan Art Gallery. The Lich King is waiting, watching for his time to strike!'

SUPER DUPER EDIT!

This was featured at BlizzCon 2009! OMG......



PS, Painter

This is amazing. The story of Arthas becoming the Lich King is so tragic :(

Hi, I am Teddy. Once you read this you
cannot get out. Finish reading this
until it is done! As I said, I am
Teddy. I am 7 years old. I have no eyes
and blood all over my face. I am dead.
If you don't send this to at least 12
people I will come to your house at
midnight and I'll hide under your bed.
When you're asleep, I'll kill you.
Don't believe me?"no"
Case 1:
Patty Buckles
Got this e-mail. She doesn't believe
in chain letters. Well, Foolish Patty.
She was sleeping when her TV started
flickering on and off. Now she's not
with us anymore. Ha ha patty, Ha ha!
You don't want to be like Patty, do
you?
Case 2:
George M. Simon
Hates chain mail, but he didn't want
to die that night. He sent it to 4
people. Not good enough George. Now,
George is in a coma, we don't know if
he'll ever wake up. Ha ha George, Ha
ha! Now, do you want to be like George?
Case 3:
Valarie Tyler
She got this letter. Another chain
letter she thought. Only had 7 people
to
send to. Well, That night when she was
having a shower she saw bloody Mary
in the mirror. It was the BIGGEST
fright of her life. Valarie is scarred
for
life.
Case 4:
Derek Minse
This is the final case I'll tell you
about. Well, Derek was a smart person.
He sent it to 12 people. Later that
day, he found a $100.00 bill on the
ground. He was premoted to head
officer at his job and his girlfriend
said
yes to his purposal. Now, Katie and
him are living happily ever after.The
have 2 beautiful children.
Send this to at least 12 people or
you'll face the consequences.
0 people- You will die tonight
1-6 people- you will be injured
7-11 people- you will get the biggest
fright of your life
12 and over- you are safe and will
have good fortun
