I love fantasy art, especially digital paintings. I have a collection of thousands of images I’ve collected, having diligently recorded the piece’s title and artist’s name in the filename. Because the sheer number of pieces can be overwhelming, I’d like to start a new feature, one where I highlight a piece or two of World of Warcraft Druid art, along with a link to where you can find more of the artist’s work.
The first piece I’d like to showcase is entitled “Druid of the Talon,” a digital painting by Dan Hornbek. It features a wizened looking Night Elf (can you not be wise after living so long?) huddled over a knotted staff, possibly preparing to cast Cyclone on an approaching enemy. My favorite part of this piece is the Druid’s hands which convey his age. The pearlescent moon behind him is also a nice touch.
From text at Battle.net.
[Druids of the Talon] are secretive druids that have adopted the totem of the crow. Their primary role in society is information gathering and intelligence. They have the ability to transform into storm crows and fly over the field of battle to scout and deliver orders to distant troops. Their magical spell-like abilities are capable of channeling even the winds to fight against the enemies of Kalimdor. They may create ferocious cyclones to sow chaos into enemy lines.
From the sounds of it, we got our Talon aspect (Cyclone and Flight Form) with the release of the Burning Crusade.
