Colors and Humans - Practice by Mick-o-Maikeru
Colors and Humans - Practice
 I came to the shocking realization that i barely ever worked on actual human beings. It shows too, i am having a lot of trouble drawing human body/face. While up to a practice, i also decided to try locking myself to certain color palettes; cold blue/cyan and orange/brown for the left, magenta , orange and cyan for the right one. I have a long way to go, hopefully i will get to do more studies and practices soon as i rarely ever work on something i am not planning on fully completing. Practice is important though, something i came to realize recently.

 I will be on my way to America in a couple of days, im not sure if i will get to draw anything while im studying there, hopefully i can upload a thing or two ^^
Nether Guardian - Loading Screen by Mick-o-Maikeru
Nether Guardian - Loading Screen
 Finally. It is complete. I've spent well over a year working on this (the models, not this image), and i am happy to finally see it out in the workshop.

 If you wish to support this loading screen and the bundle of items it comes with in the Dota 2 workshop, or leave feedback about the in-game model, you can check them out here:…

 I tried many tactics to dictate the eye of the viewer. Every time i start a project i feel like i know what im doing. However that feeling shortly disappears as i keep working on it. I kept the outer parts more blurry and kept making the face more detailed. Hopefully it works.

 Any feedback is much appreciated!

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.

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 ;)
