Netherstorm, Outland

~Six hours of cloning and blending to merge three stitches: One each for the eco-domes, and the third for Manaforge Ultris. The two bridges linking the three took the bulk of my time.


The Dark Portal, Hellfire Peninsula

The ground portion of this scene is precisely what I want it to be, but the blasted sky just crushes it. I used two stitches: One for the whole scene, and one less distorted scene for the Dark Portal itself (I did the same here) that I blended in. But the sky, the sky! I originally had a much tighter crop with a distorted sky, but it grew on me that the skybox in Hellfire Peninsula is half of what makes the zone so special. I added more, and more, repeatedly going back into the game to capture more screenshots, until I had the complete skybox in the scene. And it ruins it.

As with the rest, you should view it at full size.

Halaa, Nagrand

Alliance on a Horde server? Want the stylish Dark War Talbuk? No problem bro. Just farm 100 dust, spend forty minutes taking over the town, farm another 100 dust, spend another forty minutes taking over the town, farm seventy five dust, and spend another forty minutes taking over the town.

From hell’s heart I stab at thee.
