Shanthi — Priest Gift Art
Happy Monday morning before Mists of Pandaria launch, everyone! Are you all prepared for the new expansion?
I am not prepared (to paraphrase Illidan). For one thing, I’ve been procrastinating, so I suppose today is the day to finally sit down and go through my inventory. For another, I wanted to finish the art project I’ve been working on before all my free time goes into leveling and gearing up for raiding.
I used to fancy myself a bit of an artist, but for the last few years I haven’t drawn anything at all. However, about 3 months ago I suddenly felt the urge to create something. I’m notorious for starting projects and abandoning them; so to motivate myself I offered to draw Minstrel’s main, his Disc Priest Shanthi. And here she is!

Some of you transmogging aficionados will probably recognize a lot of the gear she’s wearing. I did change certain pieces and added some details to better suit how Minstrel envisions her.
I’m so glad I finally finished something! Yay! I almost feel like a productive member of society!
In case anyone is interested, I’m including some “bonus material” below the cut: Details from the full-size file as well as progression shots of the creative progress (with annotation). I hope you enjoy!
