    Howdy! Been following Wildstar for a long time and Wildstar Central for a not so long time. I decided to finally make it official and less creepy to formally introduce myself to the old gal and after some slaps and standoffs involving sundry arms and whatnot, we have come to see eye-to-eye and so far flying true.

    I am throwing a bit of leg out there into the Wildstar Blue Yonder of fanarts and see if I don't get it eaten off!

    This is a sketch of an original Draken Warrior, Kraytal Dreadhorn. I like the bluish tones and horned facial textures so I puts them in thar!
    Kraytal Draken.jpg
    If my chicken scratches don't scare people enough to create a Dominion/Exile cease-fire for the express purpose of my extermination, I reckon I will be posting more of these !

    *I do not know how to make my work sticky in here and I don't want to clutter the site up with a thread for every post, so keep a look out here as I edit this to add more pics until I figure out if I can sticky them!
    *Also added within the thread, only way I know how to make it show as updated, If ANYONE knows How I can make a sticky post so it notified updates AND shows all pics on the first page, I would be grateful in huge amounts!*

    Went with an idea I was milling around and finally got inspired to do by InnocentCivillian. These are what I call "The Wayward" early victims of a possible outbreak or biological weapon, these beings are slowly decaying into nothing. It was only through a specialized serum and stasis chamber, combined with mechanical implants and replacements that they could hope to survive. Too unsightly and high maintenance for the Dominion, they sough refuge with the Exiles, helping them in their efforts in exchange for medical supplies and scavenged parts for their stasis pods and body modifications.

    They are the "wetwork" specialists of the Exile faction, doing the most unsavoury and high risk missions. Their physical state leaves them at some advantages; such as resistance to pain and toxic environments. Their hope is that Nexus will provide knowledge of Eldan medicine, and the cybernetic secrets used to build the Mechari in order for them to stabilize their condition and free themselves from a dependency on drugs, regeneration chambers and constant upgrading.

    FOr their look, I decided on the old Highwaymen, wandering and ambushing, swashbuckling mercenaries. I wanted their mechanical features to differ from the Mechari so I made them look juryrigged and asymmetrical. A mixture of old parts and new is not uncommon and they never go anywhere without a pouch full of serum for emergency use and regular injections. *Sorry for wonky looking guns, I don't usually draw firearms but will practice more! This is a colour blocked version, I will detail it very soon!*
    4th race2.jpg
    *Full Detail Version!*

    Here is the basic B&W of Captain Axioz, Mechari Soldier of the Dominion! I took Roman Officers as inspiration for his design and name.
    *The full colour one will come out soon but thought it would be cool to show a preview!*
    axios.jpg

    Captain Axioz: *Colour Blocked Version-WIP*!
    axioz.jpg
    No shading or highlights just basic colours and tinted lines for a more animated look. Hopefully the end result will have that lineless concept sketch feel. Hope you enjoy!

    *CAPTAIN AXIOZ-FINAL!!!*
    Whew! went through so many techniques and style choices and back on this one I was scared i wouldn't finish! Went with sketched painterly and lineart fused a bit. A tad of trouble with the colour balance but I think it turned out pretty good considering! Hope it was worth the wait! axioz3.jpg

    Yeesh! Pulled an all nighter for this one! It is a very special and important piece because this is Bloodraptor Drakenized! My baby, OC and alter ego, BR has ben with me for a long time and now I can actually use her design quite well in WildStar! So here she is in her adapted form "Zianell The Bloodraptor" (keeping in with Draken not having last names but are able to have titles.)

    P.S. : Yes I DO like red/purple/pink hair! XD

    Finished Commission Piece!!! This is a commission by Case over at Wildstar-Roleplay.com of his Draken Spellslinger. I had a lot of fun doing this one, she looks very deadly!

    This is a commission for The Scowling Cassian Himself, Johne. The dashing Agent Hawkens lands on a secret ICI Camp on Deradune!

    This is the daredevil Spellslinger Dylan Hawke, showing off his reckless charms with a stunt on his custom ride, for a pair of (partially) impressed ladies(and a confused rowsdower) at an Algoroc Loftite quarry!

    RETURNAGE! I am using a most welcome limited usage of computer and tablet time to polish and post simple works I had on the back burner (sadly unable to do major works). This is a longtime promised update of my nostradamically similar Wayward turned to official in-game Mordesh. I will have headshots first followed by the full body outfit redesign.

    The first is Cayle Marrowdelve, he and his twin sister Mazria make the bounty hunting duo known as "The Wayward".

    YES.

    This is really awesome! ^_^

    It's incredibly in-style, and the linework is sooooo sick! :eek: The blue/gray tones do indeed go remarkably well together, but dem yellow/green eyes just add that zing. :laugh:

    That is amazing. I love the calm, cool blue in contrast to his appropriately intimidating features. I'm starting to like the Male Draken face now, thanks to you.

    I am very happy I captured the style, I tried to closely resemble Hubbell's designs without losing my own style in it.

    Thanks a lot! I really liked the broody almost nocturnal tones some of the Draken skintones have. After seeing all the incredibly varied male Draken faces available I did a take of my own with commonly shared facial traits to make it plausible in-game. With the gamut from ape faces, shark faces, crocodilian faces and "nosferatu" faces, I thought this one wouldn't be too far fetched!

    I am happy my picture had a positive effect on you, hope I can continue that streak!

    Oh hot damn! Just look at those gorgeous details! And I'm in love with the sharp angular shapes you used. And dreeeeads! :inlove:

    You've definitely made me downright jealous, and I cannot wait to see more of your awesomeness around here. :D

    Thanks so much! To be honest I kinda have you to thank for finally signing up! XD
    I was on the fence since I didn't have any Wildstar material to speak of and browsing DA for Wildstar fanart examples I stumbled on yours. It gave me the push to draw something and post it, now i am glad I did! So Thank you!!!
    I drew the male Draken as sort of an homage to a recurring monstrous warrior I have had for a while, he has been a Draenei, a Charr, a Cursed Demon, now he is a Draken that I loosely based on Ronon Dex from Stargate Atlantis in look and attitude ( :inlove: Momoa, Stargate,DREADS!)

    I am taking my time with the female Draken tho, she will be THE character i play on Dominion side. I saw that the art for the female Draken match almost to a tee what I see for my personal character Bloodraptor (She is my Avi! :D) and is near and dear to my heart and just as much an extension of me as my arm!

    been working for weeks on a redesign and now am cleaning up the linework and adapting the style so she can still be her as a badass Draken Stalker rather than a velociraptor/human hybrid ( me love dinosaurs!).

    Gah! Rantwall! I am just happy for the warm welcome! Thanks again for the inspiration!

    That's just amazing and inspiring, definitely leaning Draken now until you draw a Mechari. :p

    This guy is full of amazing.

    I love all the details, from the sketchy lines that help add depth and shadows to the way it fades out at the bottom. Really excellent work, Bloodraptor!! :D

    Oh wow, I love your lineart, and those details. Your style is amazing, really dig it, especially the Draken!

    The concept for the 4th Exile race looks really interesting too. The armor is really great looking and the overall feel you've captured could be amazing to see in game!

    Great job, can't wait to see more!

    I'm a fan! Unfortunately the Ex's aren't allowed to have such a cool race, so you can just send those right on over to Dominion...

    Holy crud, those are amazing concepts! I've toyed with how the 4th race might look, but as I tried to imagine how the rest of the body might look, none of the images in my head were particularly convincing.

    You managed to make these so LEGIT-looking! :laugh:

    If I were to say: "zombie robot cowboy", most people would think 'crazy', but I'm just gobsmacked at how convincing these designs are! :laugh: Great job! :up:

    Oh, man! That is awesome! I am totally digging your style. :D I really love their backstory you have for them too. You are so talented! Can't wait to see the detailed version next.
