For those of you that have been following, you know that one of my hobbies is playing World of Warcraft. No other game has captured my attention this long. I dabble with Hearthstone as well as Diablo III, but World of Warcraft has been my game, since vanilla. Yes! I’m one of THOSE vanilla players. One thing that has stayed pretty consistent is the use of hearthstones. I have always loved hearthstones and the designs artists have come up with. While playing World of Warcraft one day, I decided it was about time I did my own rendition of the hearthstone. So I decided to draw it out really fast on a piece of paper.
After drawing this, pretty roughly, I decided that this was something that I wanted to keep in my sketch book. So I started from scratch, and drew it again. Keeping the fact that I wanted to portray the hearthstone as a charm. Since the hearthstone is unisex, I also wanted a rope that kept true with the World of Warcraft craftsmanship. So, this is my penciled in work in my actual sketchbook!
I decided that since I really liked where this was going, I would ink it in. Now I have seriously debated on whether or not I would like to color it, and for now, I needs to just stay inked, at least until I get better at shading and such. So here is the final inked page in my sketchbook.
What do you think? Did I capture the idea of the hearthstone being a charm on a necklace? Have you ever attempted to artistically use the hearthstone? Tell me in the comments below and link your own work so I can check it out.
