Pocahontas

With its lush forests and perpetual starlight, Shadowmoon Valley has quickly become one of the most beautiful places of Draenor and it’s not hard to see why. As soon as I saw the weeping willows, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for Pocahontas. The portrait was inspired by one of my favourite scenes in the movie where John Smith first spots her through the mist. As you can see, my version includes Meeko and a dress which...

Red

I’ve featured Red Riding Hood a few times now, starting with a post I did as part of Saz’s Through your Interface challenge. It turned out to be one of my favourites from the set but decided to postdate it so it would be published last. Ah the wait! Not surprisingly, I’ve created some other Fairy Tale characters since then to keep her company. Later that year, I had an opportunity to reinvent her costume as part of...
