Every time I go to Draenor’s Shadowmoon Valley and see the talbuk herds galloping in what I’m sure was intended to be majestic splendor, I chuckle at the silliness of their flipping, flapping (not flowing) tails and think to myself that this should be a thing:

(Someone somewhere else on the internet — probably on DeviantArt — has almost certainly already done this with much more skill — but I haven’t gone looking for it.)

I can just imagine Dornaa or Salandria begging their Childrens’ Week patron, Oh please, please will you get one of those for me, please!

When I thought about drawing little girls playing with ponies, though, the two great pairs of sisters that Warlords introduced to us immediately came to mind.


Draka and her more reckless sister, Lokra, make a subtle foil to Durotan and his more reckless brother, Ga’nar, in the Frostfire Ridge storyline. Like Ga’nar, Lokra is headstrong and bloodthirsty, but she is also able to be reasonable and temperate. Where Durotan frowns at his brother, Draka is proud of her sister.


The way Yrel describes her older sister, Samaraa, it sounds to me like Samaraa was much older — perhaps even enough older to have been born on a previous world where the Draenei temporarily sheltered — and that their parents may have perished while Yrel was still a child.
I am a child of the ’80s, and I have fond memories of my mother teaching me to braid hair using the tails of my G1 My Little Ponies.

When I made myself a list of all the possible Tauren followers so that I could keep track of which ones I’d gotten and know when I’d recruited them all, I discovered that Horde characters can recruit Tholo Whitehoof as a follower from the Inn. Though there are a handful of Human, two Draenei, and one Gnome followers available to Horde characters, there are no Night Elves. Even worse, Anren Shadowseeker isn’t even available to Alliance characters as a possible Night Elf follower. Poor Tholo! What happened to Anren?

Pandaren portraits


Yeah, I ship it.
Oops, looks like I forgot to color the handle of Nomi’s knife. Maybe it’s ivory or bone or antler instead of wood😛


A lady at church was wearing a pretty netted shawl that I wanted to draw, and it seemed like the sort of thing that a Pandaren might like.

This finishes up Spring Break Art Week and all the art I had in my backlog, so the next time I want to post art, I’ll have to have drawn something new.

toffish elves

I drew the lady first and imagined her with pale skin, ebony hair, and a deep blue dress. After I drew the gent and put a monocle on him, I couldn’t help but see him as a sort of elvish version of Peter Wimsey — and then the lady needed to be like Harriet Vane, with a golden complexion and a wine-coloured frock.

These elves don’t necessarily have to be from the Warcraft setting; in this dress, they probably fit best into that setting as High Elves visiting Gilneas during the early days of the Alliance.

A Frostwall worker and a Lunarfall worker about to come to blows over who has the best claim to the Garrison Resources each was sent to acquire from the same location…

I thought about just leaving this lineart uncolored —

— but her shirt needed to be bright construction zone orange.

I haven’t heard anything about the progress of the Blizzard Watch Patreon coloring book, but in the meantime, From Draenor With Love has been providing its Patreons with occasional coloring pages to enjoy! Thank you, Stacey!❤


Rather than just coloring the characters as they are in the comic, I decided to do a palette swap. Wrathion turned into a red dragon… perhaps even Rhea’s last egg.

My printer was not printing black correctly when I first tried to print this coloring page. It just printed outlines of all the lines. After cleaning the print heads a few times, I got a better print. I kind of liked the look of the one that was just outlines, though, and I’d been having trouble deciding whether to color in marker or in crayon anyway…

The lineart for these pictures is by Stacey Landry. I just did the colors.

picking cactus apples


A quiet domestic scene featuring my Orc Shaman and her mother — or my Orc Mage and her daughter. Although I kept my Orc Shaman around for a very long time for sentimental reasons, she didn’t survive my most recent fit of roster pruning.
The cactus apples quest in the Valley of Trials and the related prickly pears cooking quest in Orgrimmar inspire me to think of Durotar as being rather like southern Utah and Arizona.
