WIP - Aurelia by cheekitty WIP - Aurelia by cheekitty
I've had a really busy few weeks, and not had time to sit down and actually paint, so I was able to work on a few drawings while I was doing other things for Anthrocon preparation.

This is my friend Aurélia *. She is a Death Knight from Azeroth, and one of the sweetest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting online. She was having a really rotten week, so I surprised her with an illio that fits into her story (I play on a roleplay realm).

She's had a really rough time of the transition from living to dead, and she...went a bit mad when the Lich King lost control over the Knights.

That isn't a metal glove. Fortunately, gnomish and goblin engineers were skilled enough to create a mechanical prosthetic for her, and most of us never notice anymore.


This will be painted between commissions, for those familiar with the setting, she's standing in front of Icecrown Citadel. I need to flesh out her sword, finish all the details in her hand, then work on the background. This is a personal project between commission work.

If I can find a public posting of Aurélia's backstory, I'll link it! Her player is a talented writer, and I believe even those unfamiliar with the game can enjoy it.

* The piece is titled incorrectly, since DA does not allow special characters in titles. Boo! Her name actually is Aurélia.
