Flame Seeker Kula by NetherStray
Flame Seeker Kula
In Wrath of the Lich King, the Taunka were introduced. But while the male Taunka had their own model, the females used the usual Tauren model. Then, in Mists of Pandaria, the Yaungol were introduced. But again, the male Yaungol were the only ones to have a model. As far as I'm aware, there are no female Yaungol in the game. So all I can really do is guess what a female Yaungol would look like. Design goal: MAKE HER FLUFFY. 

This is one of my characters, a female Yaungol named Kula. She's come to the Horde seeking answers about her people's ancient ancestry, the people who defeated her tribe, and how she can improve life for the Yaungol back home. Still, she's no peace-loving hippie... She's here for answers, not friends.
Super Simple Hand Guide by NetherStray
Super Simple Hand Guide
Another note that I didn't put on this: A hand's length from middle fingertip to palm base should be roughly the same length from chin to middle of the forehead. Index and pinky fingers should rest about halfway across the eyes themselves. If you want a character to have noticeably long or wide hands, expand either proportion accordingly!

Okay, so when I see someone has drawn hands kind of oddly, the problem usually isn't their general skill level. It's the proportions! Just like faces, hands have typical proportions that you can use as a guide to draw them in such a way that they won't look strange. I'm hesitant to say draw them "right" because that isn't always the goal. So instead, just draw them with generally correct proportions and check your work if something doesn't look the way you think it should.

This isn't a detailed guide, nor is it meant to be. These are the basic rules that you can grow from. 

EDIT: I'm really glad this was picked up in a tutorial group. I really hope someone can grow from this guide.
  • Listening to: "For Whom The Bell Tolls" by Sabaton
What are they? No one is sure, but I think I'd like to earn some. 

Aside from that, I was wondering if anyone would have interest in the original .PSD files for some of my work. Sometimes I'm asked how I accomplished a particular look, and I'm hesitant to make the file downloadable. But if there was a barrier to entry--a toll, in this case--to prevent people from grabbing things left and right to repost, I think I'd be more comfortable doing it.

I'm going to make a few of my favorite pieces available for points. Are there any in particular I should make available?

Stock and Lineart rules:

You are free to use things I post. If you use something for profit, you must speak with me to negotiate a price first. If you use something for no profit, go ahead and use it as long as you link the original in your comment and link your work in the original's comments.

I'm a former student currently figuring out just what the hell I want to be in school for. I'm a World of Warcraft player and roleplayer.

I do commissions! A dollar for a simple sketch, five for more complex, ten for inked, and fifteen for full color.

I run these sites:
Wildheart Fanfiction (… )
Silent Hill Directory (… )
I would love to make my own game, but I realize that's probably never going to happen. Maybe writing will work out instead. I like dogs and cats and have two cats. I live with my mum and have an older sister. My mother and father are divorced.

Current Residence: I keep my stalkers restricted to the internet.
deviantWEAR sizing preference: medium or large
Favourite style of art: objective. modern art is best as furniture. I'm not a big fan of "fine" art either.

MP3 player of choice: iPod
Shell of choice: wat

Personal Quote: "Hope for the best and prepare for the worst."
