The Aspects - BlizzCon 2011 by MagicalMelonBall The Aspects - BlizzCon 2011 by MagicalMelonBall
30 hours of work total, this will be my largest and longest piece yet. Yes, it was part of the BlizzCon 2011 lineart, but I wasn't going to finish the entire piece in time. I'm disappointed, but I will be coloring the rest of it later.

I managed to get this one done in time of the deadline.

Ahhh! I can't believe it's taken me this long to find your gallery! It's astoundingly beautiful and what's not to love about Warcraft art!?

I love that you've not made Ysera and Alex all about the boobs like I've seen on other art; this is tasteful and really beautiful. I really like the magic effects that Nozdormu is wielding too. Really well thought out picture, Deathwing's head sinking back into Azeroth being consumed by flames. Amazing picture, really love it :D

I love how you didn't give Ysera a derpy look, like so many pictures I've seen. I realize she's the Dreamer, but it's possible to make someone look half asleep without seeming like they took a tree to the face. This picture is gorgeous! Alexstrasza is my favorite aspect, and you projected her beautifully.

I like Yesera, Alexstraza and nozomordu, but sadly malygos looks WAY too much like Kalegos, his older son.

Malygos is dead...

Kalecgos is the new Aspect of Magic.. Kalecgos isn't the son of Malygos at all. Just another blue dragon servant.

You're right.
WoWPedia doesn't state that any of them are even related, though it's probably right that Kalec is one of the descendants of Malygos.

And am I right in unassuming that IS Kalec?
Last time I checked, he is the new Blue Dragon Aspect.

Yeah, that is Kalecgos.

I know Malygos is dead silly, and considering Malygos was the first blue dragon along with his consorts, all blue flights under him are the offspring of him and his consorts. Same goes for the rest of the aspects. They were made first, hence all minus their consorts are their children, though some are quite old.

Well, they usually state if they're a direct relation or not. If you use that same thing with humans, then we're all brother and sister.. but really we're not. I imagine the same goes for the dragons when they start to breed enough.

That is true, but it has been stated that Kalecgos is actually known a Malygos' son as stated in their newest book that is either coming out or has already come out. [link] <- book spoiler.

Yeah, I already read the book. It still doesn't state that in the book, hun. Nor did that thread state that either. :P

Roflmao, it did too in the thread at least. -shrugs- Regardless, it goes on the same idea as adam and eve and all of the humans technically being their sons and daughters. Same exact thing applies to the dragon flights. But regardless, it is good to talk to another who knows their lore. ^-^

To be perfectly honest, having just read the book less than two weeks ago, I barely skimmed the thread. I honestly didn't read any of it, and didn't care to. It might seem a bit rude, but I knew what I was talking about and didn't really care to read theories or wrong rumors after such. The only mention of direct sons (or even daughters) in the book were the only two dragons mentioned. I don't want to say there names here in fear of spoiling others, and I can assure you that Kalecgos wasn't the two direct in line for "leadership."

The only reason why I went ahead and drew Kaelc as the Aspect without fear is that he was already announced as it during the 4.2 patch data mining, and then confirmed as people did their legendary quest line with the staff.

I'm honestly not trying to be rude, but you cannot believe the PMs and such I've gotten over this piece about how I'm wrong over this or that, and I really pride myself over knowing the lore of WoW.

Why Alexstrasza have closed eyes and Ysera open?

Just the way the pose looks. Ysera gets a lot of visions when she's awake.

Gorgeous! ^_^ But...why does Kalecgos have pointy ears? His humanoid form is...human.

No, he's half elf.

[link] >_<

"He disguises himself as a half-elf, calling himself Kalec."

If you look at his model, you can see his ears are stretched slightly as well.. :|

Ahh, I'm not a comic reader and have never zoomed in close enough on Kalec's in-game model to notice slightly pointy ears. I've just always seen the human model. *lol*
