You were part of the WoW team? Why does Chris Metzen change the story so often? If you don't mind me asking. By the way, your Shattered Hand orc? awesome. One of my favourites.

Are you still working on WoW ? Any good things you've done for Warlords ?  :D

I did a lot of stuff for Warlords, just have not had time to process screenshots. I'm not on WOW team anymore though :)

Your art is absolutely awe-inspiring. You really deserved to get your art featured in Blizzard's games. I especially liked your original character work. Have you, or would you ever take commisions to draw portraits of peoples characters? I know I would seriously want one.
