SWEET LORD. 100% RIPPED STRAIGHT FROM THE ANIME.
in Canada they don’t pronounce Z as "zee"
they pronounce it as "zed" and that is crazy to me
it sounds like they made a typo when they invented it
They do that everywhere in the world that’s not America. We do that here in the UK too.
America is weird man.
Jamus once told me he always thought that the Draenei had more of an Indian flair to them, despite the Russian accents. And you kids know me and my affinity for pretty dresses, so naturally, I had to draw little Saashenka in something rather Bollywood inspired.
Will probably eventually ink and color this. And add a gratuitous amount of detail and bling. Drew inspiration from traditional Indian dance garb, and many Bollywood outfits.
My scanner still hates things, I still talk too much, and I’m still figuring out how Draenei legs work so, gomen.
…dayum, this is gorgeous. I love the movement in this.
It’s totally true though. Their influences seem to be
A) Greek Orthodox in Philosophy
B) Russian in tone and Vocalization
C) Indian in Interior design and architecture.
Almost sort of an Angkor-Wat kinda feel to their buildings. Which is… Malaysian? I think?
First of all, amazing drawing!
Secondly, I think the reason that it’s becoming more fan-accepted that draenei clothing styles are more influenced by these cultures is because these articles of clothing are better suited for the many angular, protuding parts of draenei physiology.
Between the horns, tails, and unguligrade legs, tight-fitting clothing would be uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time because the materials would be rubbing against these bonier, more exposed areas, which leads to a) the material wearing out faster, b) skin chafing (if they’re not careful to prevent it), and c) it would feel restrictive and cramped.
Clothes inspired by saris, kaftans, deels, etc… would be a style of clothing that the draenei likely favored because they’re are loose and flowy which allows for all their wide range of movements. Plus, knowing the draenei’s love of colors, flair, and design, all that material would be perfect to create elaborate designs and styles that are flashy, ornate, and, above all, comfortable!
And Alliance, as well, since I’m not sure if he also plays alliance.
User Grommosh has been banned over and over again, but it seems he finally has a permanent ban. However, he is circumventing this by parading around on an alt, ‘Actualgrom’.
This player is extremely sexist, verbally abusive and absolutely loves to make jokes about rape on top of calling most female/female modeled-players all sorts of slurs. Overall, he is a very, very shitty person who deserves to be banned on any and all accounts.
Feel free to report him if and when you see him around. /Ignore him as well. We don’t need this rotten, festering disease in our game/community. The sooner he is gone for good, the better.
My Draenei hunter, lol. Yes, I am quoting Hellboy, sorta. I do actually consider spec in my character’s personalities, because I’m weird like that. She’s Beast Mastery/Survival because animals are less complicated than people. And she’s a survivor. (Keep on survivin’. Herp de derpy derp derp.)
I am in the mood for silly doodles!
