A war has been waged upon her kingdom when she was away.
She came back just to find the villages ablaze and chaos reigning the atmosphere.
The skies became dark from the ashes, the rivers turn blood red and she can feel the terror in the screams of her people even from afar.
What was to become?
And as she neared to the scene, she whispered ” Goddess, if this is to be the end, let us die with your name on our lips”.

This will be the first.
Most loved of all my pieces.
She is the epitomy of my love for elves and white tigers.

As you can tell, this is a tribute to my beloved elf, Tyrande Whisperwind.
Except that her skin is supposed to be purple instead of looking like a “blood elf”, but, I didn’t bother to change it.

About photo-manipulations:
It basically is a group of stock photos, being placed into one “canvas” and altered to create a finalised picture.

 

I have an obsession with elves in games.
I cannot remember what was the first thing that triggered my love for elves.
Dungeon and Dragons’ elves were always a treat.

But, since I was a huge fan of Warcraft (RTS), when they added the night elves in WC2, I became deeply indulged into it.
When DOTA first came out, I jumped straight into using my sweet baby Tyrande.
(Don’t ask me to play MOBA now though.)
Although, I did join the group of Beta testers of Vanilla World of Warcraft and then left when it first opened its doors, I didn’t play it until years later.
No boundaries over my choice of race in MMORPGs, but, elves would be at the top.

If you haven’t seen my books collection, then, you’d know that the lore of the elves had already invaded my head since a long time ago.
I was awed by Drizzt Do’Urden, but, not quite the right person to be bff with.
Wood, dark, blood, high, sun, moon, forest, aquatic, drow, wild… ahhh… ❤ all of ’em.

But, Tyrande… she is… elegant, strong, beautiful, brave, righteous.
Her love relationship between the two brothers.
I’d prefer Illidan anytime.
And her white tiger, Ash’alah, who is the reason that white tigers are my most fave animal.
If I could, I’d keep a white tiger as a pet.

 

I’d second on liking Sylvanas Windrunner.
Although a Forsaken Undead, she was once a high elf.
A beautiful and powerful one.
