Time for my final submission even if there's still some time remaining and it's not completely finished, but I do not have anymore time and i guess more than 75 % of the character are shown.

What is my concept about: This is a concept, for a completely unknown creature yet, because it came to live in the rest of the ancients Kaldorei City of Suramar next to the lost Tomb of Sargeras. An less aggressive monkey back then, that was an expert to hide in the woods of the jungles around those lost islands, some of them made their way onto Maiev's ships when she hunted Illidan. Back on the continent, the monkeys escaped without anyone even noticing them. But after entering the continent, they soon got in touch with the dark shadows of the legion and got corrupted. With their abilitys to hide in the woods, and a newly earned intelligence, they were able to build up little villages high in the trees and made the continent their living place.
By hiding in the woods and attacking lonely travellers they turned into one of the most feared sort of creeps in Lordaeron and all wooden places around the continent!

Another WIP-shot.. and a bump.

(Don't worry, everything in the sketch, except the blade, is still going to be there, it's just hidden while I work on the skin.)

It's basically a Voodoo Shaman, so I guess it's not so strikingly original considering there already is the Shadow Shaman in WCIII, but I'm thinking Loa Ogou here is more of a puppeteer.

Another WIP shot:

Concept Description
Under the leadership of Garrosh, the new Warchief, the Horde have been driven by the anger of their leader against the Alliance. Shamans are no longer trained to support their Orcish brothers with wisdom and knowledge of the elements. Instead, they are now trained as deadly warriors under Garrosh to destroy the Alliance. Driven by the spirits, this new type of Shamans use two massive fist weapons as weapons and light armor, forged with magic power, to give them more agility and speed. With their connection to the spirits, they dran powers from the wolves to become even more dangerous and deadly than any other Orc. Each of these Shamans are normally found with two massive trained black wolves that fight by their side. With this original wolf pack, these Shamans are known as the best warriors of the Horde, because they have the strength of an Orc, with the agility and speel of the most dangerous wolf, and that's not even including their two wolf companions.

Ah well, had to rush it a bit towards the end, so there's a lot of detail and polish that didn't make it into this, either way I don't have time to continue.

This is my final entry:

TWIF please could you elaborate on the judging criteria a bit more? Are they out of 5, 10? 100? Rated C-A? etc lol :p

Also I am currently rounding up everyone's final picture into this post, for easy judge access - if you would like to swap the image I put up for a WIP for some reason, I presume this to will be ok, TWIF?

-> Also tell me if I missed anyone :O

Meh... I didn't even finish my wip. I was hoping I could get some more paints, but that failed hard.
So, yeah. Good luck to those who actually finished their work.

Yes, they are all very well.

Mr. Goblin, yes. the one you feel best depicts your art.

Hum being a ''concept art'' take all of them..

seriously guys.. when we are talking about ''concept art''

the drawing skills doesn't really mather, it's the idea that does.. but sure every concept artist are beast in art.. because if they weren't, they couldn't reproduce their ideas correctly. Now that's why every mediums are possible when you're a concept artist.. as long as you reproduce your idea correctly.

For example = with drawing.. or with Sculpting.

Now, every diffrent picture shot I took, it's to show it from diffrent angles.. because when we are talking about concept art... it's supposed to a drawing/sculpture that the modeler will have to recreate later.. ''because concept artists are not always modelers too'' it's normaly 2 diffrent peoples that do 2 diffrent jobs.

so having pictures from diffrent angles when of a ''concept art statue'', simply gives more tools to the modeler to recreate the ''concept art'' the best he can.

+ you asked for wip.. but okay if you insit.. I'll edit my final entry post and delete the images that aren't WIP

She doesn't have giant eyes. *sigh*
It's a mask, you can't even see the eyes.

Oh, and as for the not looking like a witch doctor comment, well, whatever details I intended to add would've made it more obvious. Either way, they won't be part of the evaluation, I didn't have time to finish it and that's all my fault, so it's being left like this.

So yeah, just clarification: she's got a mask, she's got a voodoo doll and a needle. The intended weaponry is darts (and a passive ability adding poison to those).. the rest is voodoo related.


Good luck everyone! That tauren is awesome, enjoy.
