Hello...

I dont know what to say, I've been through alot while making this, and at the last bit, I've pulled so many one nighters, was on cold turkey, and on drugs... and so on... had a boyfriend and broke up, so many emotional instances that gave me/took power to work on this...

Originally, this is supposed to be Deathwing from World of Warcraft: Cataclysm without it's armor...

Overall the total span was half a year, 410~ pure work hours.

Yeah... there are still small mistakes, please forgive me, but I'm calling this done...

When I saw this..

...I had to write a review!

Seriously, you need to do something about this. You are far too talented not to show off your incredible work. As a slave to making art myself, growing up I almost resented when people would tell me I needed to go into an artistic career or that I was "going to be an artist when I grow up." Yet here I am telling you this.

Anyhow, for an actual review, I will list things I like and don't like.

I like:

-The detail! Holy crap! The sheer amount of detail in your colors, the textures, and the composition is brilliant, and clearly took a lot of work.

-The colors are wonderful, dramatic, and capture the mood well.

-I have seen fire in real life, but have not seen lava, although you portrayed both of these with what I would call pretty close accuracy -- not the easiest for some.

-The mood is great; I think everyone who looks at this can see more than a character on a white background, or an image with no story or emotion behind it. You did this well.

-There is a lot to look at! It's very interesting to the eyes, and I really appreciate the brilliance of it.

I don't like:

-How there are not more of these from you! You must make more..

..but seriously, you are very talented. Don't let this go to waste! That doesn't mean you need a career in art or anything, but just don't stop doing this because clearly you attract a lot of positive reactions from people for it -- you are captivating! Great job!

My god....

This is absolutely amazing. It's unlikely you'll ever read this, but if you do, I want you to know I MADE this account just so I could write this review. Honestly, I'm not even a WoW fan, and I knew what this was. I have never seen anything on Newgrounds-or anywhere- with this sheer amount of detail. I suppose this makes sense, since you made it pixel by pixel by pixel.

And even beyond how aesthetically beautiful it is, is your dedication to it. This surpasses anything else I've seen on Newgrounds. You literally NEED to send this to Blizzard; they'd be fools to not see your level of talent. And the fact that it's pixelart ought to knock them right on their asses, too.
All I wish was that there was some rating higher than ten I could give you. Keep up the good work man, keep it up.

Ten Stars for sure

I read your description and I wasn't even aware that there were any mistakes. Then again, the best artists never like their own work right? Do you have a deviantart account?
