As beautiful as WoW is, the mechanics of the game limit certain scenes. The stock emotes may not adequately demonstrate a characters particular quirks, and /em does not make a toon move in a particular fashion. Sometimes, these limitations encourage players to develop their writing ability–to show how the character reacts instead of telling people how the character reacts–and sometimes they are just a pain in the ass.
Enter the artists. The talented ones–like Lans–can summarize and explain months ofRP in one beautiful picture. Lans’ picture was originally intended to just show off how Bricu was taking Threnn’s not-dead-just-sleeping storyline. It has come to represent far more than that. This is one of my favorite examples of his art. He has interpreted my character in way I cannot–through drawing–and he has cared for it in ways that show how much he respects my character. This is just as amazing as letting another author you trust write about your toon.
I want to see the other artists who have done such an amazing job of interpreting your RP. Please share as many pics and links as you want! Whether this is RP Fic featuring your character as portrayed by another RPer or pictures you commissioned, we want to see them!
