A few weeks ago we presented you the fantastic 3D models from the digital pen of Shirdi Briceño (aka metalfk). You could see all kinds of realistic models of male and female WoW heroes that the artist created in ZBrush and then rendered in Maya. Today we show you the latest works from her portfolio. This time there are images of Nightborn, an Orc with a baby, a Gnome and a tough Tortollan.
The Tortollan is looking particularly sinister in this image. The artist experimented with colors in this project to give the figures a little more life. These images are the final part of her personal WoW project. Shirdi Briceño declared that she wants to concentrate on other 3D projects in the future. Very sad, we think. She was one of the few artists who worked on realistic models of the inhabitants of Azeroth. Most other fan art tends to revolve around recreating iconic cities and areas from World of Warcraft. Still, thanks to Shirdi, we've at least gotten an idea of what the races of WoW might look like with modern graphics.
For more images, check out Shirdi's gallery on Artstation and Instagram. In the following articles you can find the models of various heroes from World of Warcraft. The pictures of Blood Elves, Undead, Tauren and a Dwarf as well as the exceptionally realistic models of the Draenei, Ogre, Goblin and a Darkspear Troll.
