Draenai vs Trex by Magnuson24 Draenai vs Trex by Magnuson24
While playing my favorite game of World of Warcraft, my (then) fledgling character was running around the forgotten world and came upon a T-rex... despite the best advice from my friend and in game mentor, I strode in heedlessly to my doom.

This picture is an homage to all of us who have gone in to face insurmountable odds and failed... though later triumph!!

original drawn 5x7 in black ball point pen.

Wow, just seen this... am I okay to take a stab at colouring this? I could use the practise at colouring the envirionment in particular, would love to try and get the overall colour pallette to match the zone in-game (and starting with these lines as a base should make producing a good final image a breeze!) :)

Thanks so much. I had a bit of an adventure drawing this because of all the linework, but it turned out very pleasingly.

I love the detail and can sympathize entirely with that. My Druid and I have taken many risks like this and have ended up dying as a result-- only to go back and do it again and again until we triumph. XD!!

Good job!

I support this idea! My druid kind of hates the crater. The first time he was there, I wasn't paying attention and he got eaten Jurassic park style by one of the huge T-Rexes XD

Awesome picture with some truely spot on use of perspective. Reminds me of the moment you realise the darn dino has managed to sneak up on you as you were looting... always seems to happen to me there!

Thank you so much Vix!! I appreciate the comment, the fave and the watch. This was a fun piece to make.. And most times when I was in the crater I spent my days looking behind me as I ran forward so they WOULDN'T sneak up on me, only to run smack into the back of one of them... ugg.. no justice for the lonely gamer.

LOL

The intimidation factor is visible very well. Really an outstanding work!

I didn't serve myself but I was always fascinated by the CV-63 history :aww: I am actually surprised someone got the CV63 hint. Most people don't ^^
And at this point I have to thank you for your service :D

I'll put you on my watch list. I really like your art and hope to see more of it =^.^=

Alas, it wasn't magical.. no enchantments on it at all.. That was partially why I died the first time without some 'healing help'... *slap forehead*

I love the pose in this one - for the Draenei and the Rex. They seem to mirror a bit. I also like the 'furiously healing shaman' in the back. The detail on the armor, the scales... even the poor trees. Well done! My first rex on my hunter snuck up on me, I admittedly left the pet to deal with it, ran like the dickens only to round a tree and run into another rex. Feign death... was resisted. I got them back though. *eyes 100 devilsaur leather in her bank* I keep tally.

Ha ha.. great story.. thanks for sharing.. I have similar experiences and make a point to hunt them for fun. I have a healer I'm looking to add a tally marker too, but so far can't solo him.

I also had a LW who couldn't use the leather from it.. would be nice to see if there was actually a pattern or some set of armor that could be made from it.

Glad you liked the image and I thank you for the compliments and.. well everything.!!

There are patterns! [link] It took me a while to solo one of those bad boys. I managed it the other day on a dwarf hunter with her pet but I was lucky it didn't fear and there weren't other mobs around. It took 10 minutes but I did it.

And you are most welcome!

This is really good. But, when I usually see this rex in the crater, I'm looking the other way and the damn thing sneaks up on me. So same rex pose but I'd be standing there picking weeds or something unaware of that behemoth coming up behind me. :)

OMG too funny!! I learned well not to do this without a healer... If you zoom in on the pic.. down by his foot you can see my partner Shammy healing me with a totem.

Dumb warriors rush in to battle heedlessly... Smart warriors rush into battle heedlessly with heals.

If there is such a thing as a smart warrior :3

Thanks for the comment!!
