The Moon Burns by MagicalMelonBall The Moon Burns by MagicalMelonBall
The moon burns with his destruction...

...with her rage.


18+ hours total coloring. Yes, I did reuse my Deathwing. So what?

Saw this on Reddit! I love it! Great color, sense of direction and motion. I really like how Deathwing and your druid both have open mouths, kind of mirroring one another. Great work!

Beautiful work! I love the yell, the emotion on the face is very well done.. it doesn't look too stiff or anything, very organic and fluid.

Pardon, but may I interject a little lore correction? (Warning: unwarranted wall of text ahead!)

The Druids that took up the path of Goldrinn/Lo'gosh (the great white wolf Ancient) and utilized the 'Pack Form' were officially called the 'Druids of the Pack'. Goldrinn's ferocity was such that it overpowered his noble nature, and anyone who dared use the Pack Form were similarly overpowered by this feral rage. It was because of this nigh uncontrollable rage that it was forbidden for any druid to utilize it, as it would blind the user from being able to distinguish from friend or foe.

In an effort to control this blind and savage rage, the Scythe of Elune was created with a blade carved from the Fang of Goldrinn and a branch blessed by Elune. The fusion of savagery and serenity transformed the original quadrupedal Pack Form into the modern semi-bipedal Worgen form, and all the druids that took on this form became the Druids of the Scythe.

Let's just say that the experiment failed because of one particularly vengeful druid and pretty much got all the Druids of the Scythe/Pack got locked up in the Emerald Dream for a good long time.

That said, it would take a Druid of an amazing mental constitution and a strong dose of blessing from nature, the Emerald Dream, and Elune herself to maintain their sanity when utilizing the "Pure Form" of the Worgen... Not even Shan'do Malfurion was capable of handing Goldrinn's rage, so I have great respect for any night elf druid who has a good grip on their mind and on the form.

... of course, that's coming from a fellow night elf 'wolf druid'. *toothy grin*

That said, I am equally impressed with this piece. Even though you did say you reused your roaring Deathwing, I say that it complements the composition as well -- The rage of a fallen Aspect and the rage of a semi-fallen Wolf Druid in a balance of good and evil, light and dark, comparison and contrast.

I can't help noticing all the fine little details you've managed to work into the piece; it is almost photographic. Fine little details like the wood grain, the flying hair and the furry textures in her hand paws... those drive me insane when i try to do them. I applaud you for the effort of dealing with those.

Overall, a wonderful and awe-inspiring piece. I hope to see more from you via The Warcraft Legion soon!

Thank you for the lore info, but when it comes to druid lore I'm pretty much top notch.. In fact, I ended up practically creating a lot of the Pack lore before the manga came out. Sure, it was all just by chance, but it made me feel proud that I was basically doing it right to be on the same wave length as them.

That said, both Fang and Pack are basically the same thing. It's called the Pack now, but they recanon some of their stuff.

But I really do appreciate the comment. I really, really do.

I kind of looks like Elune is really pissed off at what Deathwing is up to. Awesome piece of art here.

For a second, I thought she was a worgen. Then I realized I derped and missed the obvious fact she's a druid. Very nice work. :D

Well, she is.

Roleplay wise, she is a night elf druid that uses the worgen form. It's canon, just not selectable in game.

So she's a Druid of the Fang? I think that's what they were called, the original Nelf druids before they turned into worgen.

MagicalMelonBall Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, and no.

In the RP, she thought if she could practice the form with more patience than the original Fangs, she'd be able to control it. It eventually took over, and she can no longer leave that corrupted form for unknown reasons. She's still her, but she's more vicious and hot headed.
