I'm really excited to share this project that I worked on in the Brushforge mentorship with Jordan Powers. Arakkoa are one of my favorite races from WoW and I'm really glad I got to explore their aesthetic with this project. My goal was to improve my handpainted texture skills and design skills. I worked on this project from concept to final render - it was challenging, but I learned so much and had a lot of fun working on it.
Huge thank you to Jordan for being such a great mentor, and for his infinite wisdom and patience.
Big thanks to my classmates, Tai Walker, and the Handpainters Guild for all their encouragement, help, and feedback.
Also thanks to Ashleigh Warner, whose WoD Arakkoa props were a huge inspiration to me. Thank you for your feedback on my concepts, I really appreciate it!
