Might not have had an episode this Saturday, but that doesn't mean I can't do episode art right?!

Since I'm planning on covering a bunch of the finale (during the Saturday Livestreams), I thought it would be nice to make that what I see a lot and I didn't do last week myself.

I've also seen several folks already expecting a battle scene from me eventually and I guess here it is! Hope I didn't disappoint.
This one was fun to do as always, creating a low camera large scale character. Brings me back to the Timberwolf Emperor I made almost a year ago already. Done plenty other large beasts as well though.

Anyhow, hope y'all enjoy and bathe in the season 4 aftermath. We can fill up this empty time!

PS: I'll put together the time lapse video for this tomorrow or something, need to get those going again.
Time Lapse is up!

Edit: Added a 1440p version. I don't know how common it's yet, but if there's enough interest I'll see to saving that size a bit more over time perhaps.

Approx Time: 9,5 hours

As part of my Patreon, a PSD, and HighRes file has been released for free here:…

One thing for sure is that this magnificent drawing has a lot emotion presented to the viewer.

What I mean by emotion: one how you made the background scene, like how you made the amber sky fit with the character and the moment. Second: how made the depth and scale of things, as for the characters anyway. you've shown this in the big guy (forgot his name, so dis on me all you want), and compare him to Twilight, you give the viewer how monstrous the villain is. Finally, how much emotion you where able to give Twilight, the sadness expressed in her face says a lot.

Over all I really enjoyed this picture. I will always enjoy what new things you put out on DeviantArt.

Definitely a great piece. You caught the sense of "facing an overwhelming opponent" perfectly, and the dark, desolate background adds a sense of doom looming on the horizon, as if hell itself was approaching. Tirek, being a silhouette, gives him that ancient evil look, as well.

My favorite feature, though, would be that little detail of the tear in Twilight's eye. That just perfectly portrays her feelings of rage and desperation, fighting an enemy that doesn't want to just cause chaos, or enslave, but destroy. He was the first true evil she had ever faced.

Excellent work. I look forward to more.
