Nimzana by GenjiLim Nimzana by GenjiLim
"Nimzana." Character drawing for :iconnimzach:'s WoW character.

He's a badass pvp'er with his super sexy Tauren Deathknight. Enjoy!

Photoshop + Tablet. ~30 hours.

Other notes: I took over a year and a half to draw this concept. The picture went through 3 different versions, the final being what you see here. I struggled with the poses, figures, and scenery until it finally looked good enough to complete.

From this experience I've learned that I need to study figures more, and plan my colors/values ahead of time.

A tauren death knight! I never seen one drawn before.

This is so dynamic and all the cool colors around the orange in the background make it look so frigid. Job well done!

A Tauren Death Knight with Wings? Diablo players, look out. This gives the Mysterious Cow Level a whole new level of difficulty.

dunno, but the entire body shape looks more like a human with a long nose with hooves.
Remove the hooves and take away a little bit of the nose and it's either a nightelf or a human.

Yeah, I agree. I'm open to suggestions how to make her more "tauren". Should I add hair and body mass you think?
Reply
:icongajus-tempus:
gajus-tempus Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
nah, I doubt hair or simple kilograms would change much. It's more the face, the hips and the legs. Take a good look at the anatomy of the tauren legs and the angles they're supposed to be at, make the hips a bit wider. And remember the face - smaller eyes, a more narrow but wide forehead and a more prominent "nose"

I think that'd be a good start :)

GenjiLim Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, thanks for the recommendations; very helpful.
I'll be aware of these details in case I revise this one or when I create Tauren characters in the future.
It helps to have another pair of eyes point out things which I overlook. ^^

Thanks, queenkalani! I'm glad you're still keeping up with my work ^^
And thanks for noticing all the small details. It was a lot of work!

By the way, is your name referring to Hawaiian royalty by any chance?
Reply
:iconqueenkalani:
queenkalani Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2011
Haha, actually it's a reference to a character of mine. It's funny you should ask though, because I remember when I first discovered there was a Hawaiian queen with "Kalani" as a part of her name. Moreso, there's quite a few Hawaiian royals with Kalani in their names. I was really shocked because I literally made up the name from my own brainwaves.

I think it's a humorous coincidence, lol. You're not the first person to ask me that, and I get a chuckle out of it every time.

GenjiLim Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, I see. Yeah, I ask because I attend classes at polynesian music and dance studio, and that name is indeed Hawaiian =)
Neat name though! It's cool you merely made it up!
