Warrior of the Eternal Night by Mick-o-Maikeru
Warrior of the Eternal Night
 After months of distractions, i am trying to get more consistent with my art. I managed to finish this one in two days, which is a new personal record of mine since im actually also happy about this one, which is rare.

 Have some Nightmare Moon! A remake of my older art "Warrior of the moon". A certain incident made me feel embarrassed about it and convinced me to make a newer version.

 Hope you like it! Any comment and/criticism is much appreciated!

 Nightmare Moon belongs to Hasbro, but the art belongs to me. Feel free to download the bigger version and use it to your liking, with the condition of crediting me and providing a link back here if you upload it anywhere else. Thank you for looking ^^ .
Keeper of the bestial spirits by Mick-o-Maikeru
Keeper of the bestial spirits
 Submitted into "Witch/Warlock" category (even though it might resemble a monster at first glance).

 "A warlock that has become so obsessed with the beasts that roam the earth; he not only lives in the wilds collecting all information related to them, but has also enchanted his own flesh to become one. "

 My entry to the contest. After failing to make it to the semi-finals in the previous contest, i got fired up to push my limits. I might not make it this time either, but at least i can safely say that i have learned so much that the experience alone has been very rewarding.
Monowheel Charger by Mick-o-Maikeru
Monowheel Charger
 I had to enter this contest. Working on 2D illustrations for a videogame company is my dream, and i love Hearthstone. Even though im a tad late, here it is; Monowheel Charger.

 There aren't a lot of female goblin characters in Hearthstone, apart from the "reckless rocketeer" nothing comes to my mind (and frankly i was heavily inspired by it apparently). The idea of a single wheeled vehicle was something i had in mind for another project (A courier for dota 2) but i never got around to it (and something similar eventually got made by someone else), i thought it would work well here.

 If this gal was turned into a card, it would have been a 4 cost 6/2 charge minion with deathrattle: deal 3* (*possibly more) damage to your minions. Sort of like the reckless rocketeer that is way more reckless as she crashes and hurts her own allies.

 I was personally happy with this one as i managed to get it done mostly on a single layer and on a very short amount of time. This experience has convinced me to come back to DA!

 Any comment/critisizm is much appreciated! Im not expecting to get the 1st place (the dentist deserves that title in my opinion) but i think i can certainly learn from this contest.
By the pool by Mick-o-Maikeru
By the pool
 Another drawing that i spent so long drawing that i just don't want to work on it anymore... It is very sad to see my inspiration slowly fading away as i keep delaying my projects. Spending too long looking at something simply makes your brain get so used to seeing it that you can barely notice if anything is out of place etc. anymore. Flipping the canvas only helps so far. So i am submitting this despite not being happy with the overall picture.

 Anthro ponies! Wanted to try my hand at it. I was wondering if i could make nsfw art, i know many people greatly oppose mlp drawn that way and i do enjoy drawing cute ponies more than drawing sexy ones, so this is the result. I suppose the "sightseeing" i did during my vacation was a part of the inspiration too, as i could see the pool directly from my room.

 I personally think i should crop the image to only feature Rainbow Dash since im (only) pleased with how she came out. I tried a couple of new things but not enough to be interesting to mention. I still struggle greatly with; keeping track of my layers, properly finishing certain shapes, clouds, water, skin, and im afraid the list goes on.

 Any comment and/or criticism is much appreciated!

Garments of the Wise Beast by Mick-o-Maikeru
Garments of the Wise Beast
 The loading screen i did for my first DotA2 Workshop item submission: Garments of the Wise Beast

 You can check out the item submission, preview video and the 3D models themselves…

 I always liked Spirit Breaker, the good for nothing OP in pubs trash in competitive space cow. I dunno, something about the hate surrounding the hero makes him more charming to me for some reason. But the main reason why i like him is his appearance. I was never too fond of his armor though, and decided to make one myself.

 I went for a more "Spiritual" look. The character is a half spirit, half beast being and the manner of his speech also makes him feel more like a mage or shaman than a warrior, however most -if not all- sets made for him bring out his warrior side.

 I have spent almost over a year working on this project. I learned 3D modelling and a lot of other things connected to it. Re-did the entire set of models 3 times. Finally it is done, and i almost shed a tear when i finally got a "Super epic volvo please add this and give me one copy" thumbs up thingie. Hopefully it wont be the only one...

 Your support would help me quite a lot, you do not even have to rate the project up, rate it down if you please, what i would greatly appreciate is feedback. This is my first year of ever working on a 3D project, i've got a lot of room for improvement.

 Thanks to my good buddies : :iconmagnificentartist: and :iconxerca: . They helped me quite a ton in not only making the set (Preview images and particle effects) but also in a lot of technical details. Needless to say, i wouldn't have been able to publish the set without them.

 Edit: I generally updated the image. Removed the contrast tweaks, added a bit more light and definition to the background mist as well as the ground. Attempted to give more detail to the feathers while staying true to the model. Re-did the flaming head and fixed and completed some odd parts on the body.

Seeing as I love hearthstone too, and am making pony cards just for the fun of it, is it alright if I use some of your art to make some cards?
Mick-o-Maikeru Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2015  Student Digital Artist
 Sure ^^ . I would appreciate a link back here, but apart from that use them as you please.

 Infact, i could draw the art for a card or two in case you were unable to find one that is suitable but i cannot promise anything as im rather busy thanks to University and personal projects.

If you truely wish to help, I still need a good picture for the Chrisalis portrait when I input her for a bossfight (spoilers lol), also, if you might have some card ideas, you could note me for them ;)
