What does a Torage look like?

After many hours in Photoshop and many conceptual drawings I have come up with this.

The armor set is my own design.

Glad I'm a member of the Horde... although I don't feel like that is comfort enough. Nice grill.

I'm just gonna go stand over there.

In the concept sketch his sword is in the ground next to him so it will get added with the background.

I left it out of this first take because its chained to him... IDK if you have ever had the displeasure of trying to draw chains but yeah, they aren't much fun.

Mindless killing -machine-. It works very well so, but the armor really does look mechanical. Can I suggest the under-armer being leather or even bare ski- fur? You've got excellent artistic talent, I won't deny you that. I think his face needs a bit of texture to induce the feeling of fur too. Other than that, I can't wait to see it with a background.

P.S. Is his armor actually cracked or just armor patterns?

Tors armor is supposed to be seamless.

Also as far as mechanical his right arm is fused with a titan artifact (This is how i explain Tor being an engineer, but cant count past three.) so it kind of is mechanical.

Here is a full breakdown of the set.

As for the Fur i agree. I was having issues making it with a color burn layer and had to just paint it out, but it came out a bit too fine and looks off.

The armor is cracked in this painting, i wanted it to look worn and to test my skills with playing off of a texture overlay.

P.S.: For you alliance people that haven't interacted with Tor (other than brutal combat!) Tor is not aware that he is even wearing this armor, it has been on him from before he can remember.

Does that mean that Torage thinks he is in the nude? Naughty!

The silver material bordering all his armor a stronger metal resistant to cracking?

Torage Prime, leader of the Auto-Tauren. No wait maybe he looks more like a Decepticon. Or maybe a Gundam.

Awesome work, Tor. *wink*

It's pretty slick Tor, as always, but can I suggest something? "Tor" would look a little better if he had some tier 5 paladin shoulders, maybe the helm, gloves, chest piece and pants...maybe a Bulwark of Azzinoth with a sword, that would be pretty bad a$$.

Horde don't run away screaming when they're outnumbered, or whine about it... or blue-flag and then stand around spamming /lol /pity /spit and /dance.

Have you even watched the original series?

And no, Garrosh doesn't count in this scenario.

But this has seriously de-railed, so back to the current topic.

I checked out your DA Torage, nice work. I love your sculptures. I had no idea you did that sort of thing, very cool!

I can vouch that Ocba doesn't blue flag at least. there was that one time in the mine when i was doing DO dailys and had gotten all of the possible merc buffs and had the tower and GY buffs, when i stumbles upon Ocba blue flagged.

I'm pretty sure hes part of that Guild watch thing where they are always supposed to be flagged, so i tapped my foot at him and waited. Sure enough he went into camo and flagged up like the respectable fellow he is. I then preceded to splatter him and the other 6 alliance that happened to be around at the time. although i think two of them just tagged me by mistake.

Also for the armor the plating was originally saronite, being the dried blood of an old god I though of it as sort of a really hard amber that would crack before bending. and the framing was Titan steel and steel tends to bend a bit (yes this armor has been THAT long in the making). I have recently upgraded it to trillium (the thumbnail for the bar looks like a swirly cracked pattern) with a living steel frame. For those of you that did the caravan RP with me and Gahazakul, that's what we where transporting.

I wasn't trying to point fingers at Ocba. I was speaking generally about the overall attitude that I seem to see over and over again. I know there are exceptions to the stereotypes on both sides.

But I understand how it could be taken that way. My apologies to you. And Ocba, I hope you didn't think I was attacking you directly. I dun' like being called a Decepticon. Unless you say I'm like Ravage (the design from the movies, not the cartoon haha). I'm fine with that. He's awesome.

... Anyway Tor, did you use a tablet for your art? I can only assume so! If you used a mouse, you're a new kind of God.

You're the last Horde I expect to do that without sufficient reason. :)

Hahaha, Yeah I had a good laugh at how my PvP gear shredded like paper in the four hit it took you to kill me with. ;P But you're wrong about that flagging thing. That's a personal challenge some of the members choose to under-go; I believe some Horde do the same thing. Its not required, and I can't do it since I have to switch my whole stables when I go from PvE to PvP, you ran into me without my disarming, stunning, and rooting pets. :P

Oh no no no no no.

Optimus Primal =/= Optimus Prime

I watched some Beast Wars too. But no. That's not the original series. ^_^

Thanks, I'm glad that I am perceived in that light!

As far as flagging goes, I have a story for you. I came from a game of 6 years where there was no 'flagged'. You could kill anyone at any time. When you killed someone without them fighting back, your name turned red and you were labeled a 'PKer' - player killer - and everyone would hunt you down, because all the items on your character (that could have taken literally years for you to farm) had a chance to drop when you died. In other words, you become a world boss. And there are no factions. Guildmates can kill guildmates. Top-dog guilds literally ruled the server as vicious dictators, and entire guilds could be sent after you if you made one person mad. So trust me, I got used to watching my back. It's actually nice to have it optional for a change!

Hm. You know, I think I've told that story a hundred times.
*scratches her noggin with her cane*

ANYWAY. That's my story time, children! Who wants popcorn?

(oh oh oh, we need to start voting for what transformer Torage looks like!! And that's not meant to be an insult to you, Tor. We all think your drawing is kick-tail.)

I use a WACOM bamboo fun CTE-650.

also I'm thinking of drawing black and white sketches of happenings at RP events. The little show that happened in hell fire pen last week has inspired some sketches that i might post.

You should very much do that!

It's funny, you use the same tablet as me. :-) Love that one.
