Frostfire by Newcalibre Frostfire by Newcalibre
I started this as a boredom sketch, while I was at the coffeeshop one day. I have this stupid idea to do quasi 'pinup girls' of all the warcraft classes, starting with the 'Sentinel' painting I did a while ago. This would be the second instalment.

I've always loved the Frostfire armour design, and wanted to paint my interpretation of it. Despite her prissy appearance, the blood elf is a powerful mage, capable of invoking the destructive power of the elements at a whim. A force to be reckoned with, perhaps her princessy nature makes her even more deadly, where she lacks restraint at times, and is reckless with her great talent.


Photoshop CS4, Intuos 4, Cintiq 12WX, lost track of hours.

VERY nicely done. Always a fan of the sexy mages. Brains body and power. nuf of make you grin n' shiver.

Case you were curious frost fire's supposed to work by consuming the heat as the spell rushes towards it's target, leaving a liquid nitrogen type atmosphere behind.

Fantastic!
Incredibly thought-through. Very good representation of character.
A nice touch having one hand ice cold and another fiery hot. And icy shoulder plates.
A Fine piece of work!
This picture is super-good, but it would be awesome to include some special effects, like a crumbling tower in the background (anything crumbles when super-heated, then quickly chilled ).

This is amazing! Not gonna lie, I would love to see the priest as a female dwarf pinup... I might be the only one that wants that though.

Thankyou! I used to have a female dwarf priest :). Female dwarves in general are so rare! I'll have to look into the lineup, but might include one just for fun :>

You would make my day, and decrease the rarity (and probably increase the quality) of well drawn female dwarves everywhere. Your art is just amazing.

I appreciate your kind words :), and totally agree with you about the need for a better representation of female dwarves in art! Do you play a dwarf by any chance? XD

I have *ahem* 5 dwarves. 3 Female, 3 male. That I play regularly.

I count 6 by your breakdown XD. My hat goes off to you though; here I thought I was special for just having one!

Oh, it was supposed to be 2 male... my bad. I'm a bit of a dwarf fan though. Family comes from Norway, I'm short and stocky... so, yeah.
