We got Ragnaros down after weeks of excruciating difficulty in the second transition phase. The attempt went so well I was still expecting the hard part when he went down! I'm so proud of my guild :)
|Obligatory kill shot|
Finally, I have a special present for you behind the cut!
I'm not much of an artist, especially when it comes to animals (ask me about my hideously deformed tauren doodles!). I did want to poke at some female pandaren designs, however, so I collected sample shots of the dudes in game. It took a few attempts to get the body right, since at first they kept coming out like the super-deformed wide, short-but-not-fat bodies that haunted my youth. I also wanted to try out some different hairstyles and fur eye patches. I don't have a scanner - and didn't want to go all weeaboo on my coworkers - so these are photos of my drawings that I touched up in Photoshop. The male panda reference screenshots are linked above.
|Don't worry, she's wearing pants. I realized belatedly they were the same color as her fur. The hairstyle is inspired by my students, who gather their bangs into a unicorn-like spray of hair directly on top of their heads.|
|I realized that if I didn't change colors my dollar-store markers would run out quickly. Here I'm trying out a longer hairstyle and some messier eye patches.|
|Why not have red hair? Red hair is great. These eye patches were inspired by the night elf lady face tattoos.|
|I couldn't resist going for a boy-band hairstyle, which I realized looks a lot like an emo anime character. At any rate, I call this eye patch shape "eyeglasses."|
|This is probably my favorite drawing, in that I feel it came out pretty well, and I like the hairstyle a lot.|
