I like it. Is this a depiction of her at the Exarch Trials?

I painted this months before WoD's release; all I knew of Yrel was from Blizzcon 2013's Lore Panel where an image of her was shown and it was said that she was a sort of Joan of Arc and that she would become a hero for her people. I've also read that she was a priestess that would become a paladin. I wanted to portrait her transition from a priest to a paladin similar to the medieval accolade, but it could also represent her when she became an Exarch.

Nice. You have a good ability to envision that based on such limited info.

This is soooo awesome. Y, screw Sylvanas and Jaina, Yrel is my new goddess :meow:.

Btw, if they were to make a HS card with Yrel, I would want this to be the art.

Very well done! This is such a great piece of work, i really thought that it was an official blizzard art, the colors are fitting so well together. Take my fav, comment, watch, everything xD!

Very nice composition overall, Almost thought it was the official blizzard art at first.

That being said, i think the lighting and shadows could be a bit more defined. The hoove almost seems like its floating on the floor, I can see you added reflective shadows to show the floor's glossy material, but I think it could be a bit stronger, as could the crystal candles lighting her backside, which should give a stronger silhoutte around her body. 

Great work overall though, bravo !

Thank you very much, it's a huge compliment for me! :)

Also, thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful critique. You're right, I had noticed that the hoof almost looks like it's floating, and the solution should be indeed as you said to put a stronger shadow. Instead, I hadn't noticed about the backlight from the crystal candles, you're absolutely right, it'd give her a stronger silhouette and it would also separate better her figure from the wall behind her.
I won't edit the image because that's how it was send, but I will certainly think about the mistakes you pointed out to be sure I won't make them again.

Thanks again! :)

Sorry just favourited before I commented, tough to type on a rough road, so here I go. I absolutely LOVE this picture. That solemn nobleness that Yrel came to embody, with the rage for the Iron Horde boiling under the surface. You capture it so well. Yrel has quickly become a top 3 favourite of mine in the Lore, and I just LOVE the way you captured her essence!
