The Warth by Minhee-Kim reveals gorgeous brushstrokes forming together a strong sense of composition and vibrancy. This is one amazing WoW character fan art! ( Suggested by Ploopie and Featured by TheCreativeJenn )

It's so magical! Really like it, especially the way its drawn - so rough, yet so smooth at the same time. :)
Indeed a dynamic piece of work.

I very much fear where Jaina is going to go in the next expansion.

I just don't have words to describe how incredible this drawing is.. :)
Love it so much! ^^

o.o I haven't read ToW yet, I can already say that Jaina, a once-loved character with a good background has become a psychotic murderer who has tried to persuade Varian (at the end of SoO) to kill the Horde. For good. I'm not particularly a fan of Horde, but that...that is just...Slaughter. Mindless murder.
DeadeyeClark Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014
Are you sure? Read the book; she's not as vicious or murderous as you might think... Jaina is just PISSED.
Legendwarcraft33 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I can only read bits and pieces because I have no money to buy the (really good looking filled with action-ey awesomeness) book yet, seen the reviews, read the lore on the b*tch, all that stuff. I saw the ending to SoO, and she said Varian could end the Horde or something, but I suspect she is a psycho now. The fans now say that the one word running through her head now is 'kill.' I kinda agree on it. A lot.
LordArtharion Featured By Owner May 4, 2014
The horde under Garrosh, namely the orcs that she had tried to peacefully coexist with, decided to burn her city to the ground, massacre its citizens, bomb them while killing many mages including the leader of Dalaran (did I miss anything?)... I'd say her hatred is well founded

I think it's spelled "wrath".

I stopped playing wow last year..... what the heck happened to jaina????????
anyway, this is incredible
lolwutzquestionmark Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013
I haven't played in a while either, but I have kept up on (most of) the lore. This is from the "Tides of War" book.
Garrosh Hellscream, being the genius he is, attacked Theramore out of the blue. Most of the Horde leaders were unsure if it was the right thing to do, and Gallywix ratted them out. Baine, however, sent a Tauren emissary to warn Jaina of the attack, still having respect for her from back when she and Anduin helped him (when the Cataclysm was still a new development). Anyway, Garrosh had the Sunreavers create a mana-bomb (essentially a nuke) to use on Theramore as a "contingency plan" of sorts. Well, Jaina was still in the city when it was dropped and Rhonin pushed her through a portal at the last second, sacrificing himself to save her. The effects of the mana-bomb on the portal caused her hair to be bleached white, her eyes to glow eerily, and her tear ducts to produce mana instead of tears. The one streak of blonde left was what wasn't in the portal yet, I think. Jaina returned to Theramore later to see it destroyed and the remains of her friends frozen in time. When she tried to touch them, they turned to dust. Kalecgos (who was a big part of the Battle, I just didn't mention him) tried to comfort her, and showed signs of having feelings for her. They had chemistry through the book, so it wasn't just random. Jaina sure knows how to pick 'em!

So pretty much, Hellscream took away the sympathy Jaina had left for the Orcs. Jaina was named the new Archmage of the Kirin Tor, and her first order of business was slaughtering all the Sunreavers in the city. She didn't succeed of course, and that's about where I lose track of her lore, but someone must have calmed her down. Probably Kalec.

she sort of mellowed out (she's no longer mass genocide)

During the Thunder Isle Campaign, The Sunreavers, Wary of Garrosh's Leadership, and the Krin Tor Take up posts on opposite ends of the Island. At the hight of the Campaign, The Sunreavers and the Kirin Tor were about to Throw down at a junction called the Bloodied crossing, but a Wounded Taran-Zu showed up last minute to repremand the commanders of both factions for their rebuttal behavior, and preventing what would have been a massacare.


 Near the end of the Campaign, Jaina has the powers of the now dead Thunder King, and The Sunreavers have the capability to build Constructs powered on a Red Viscous liquid; The Blood of the Titan Ra'Den.

lolwutzquestionmark Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
Yeah, I wasn't max level during the Thunder King patch, so I missed all of that. Such a shame, I love Jaina and wanted to see where her story goes first-hand.
Man, no matter how many lickings Taran-Zhu takes, he just doesn't die. Gotta hand it to him. So what you're telling me is that Jaina is now pretty much magic incarnate? She sounds like the most powerful mage on the planet - including the Blue Dragonflight. And I guess what you've told me about the Sunreavers explains those blood-filled golden construct models I saw. Intredasting.
As you can see, I wrote that before Siege of Orgrimmar's release was even announced, so I had yet to see the cutscene where she tells Varian to slaughter the Horde leaders because she assumes they're plotting against them. In reality, they're trying to make sense of who's the new Warchief. Regardless, I'm starting to really dislike the road Blizzard's pushing Jaina down. She's becoming Sylvanas 2.0 (as she becomes Lich King 2.0. Funny, that.).

awesome ^_^ I planned on drawing a picture of Jaina after reading Tides of War too but I couldn't get the angle of her face right for what I wanted... which was the whole feel of the picture so I gave up :\ It was gonna be really emotional.. I feel so bad for her :( Maybe eventually I'll try again, but what I had in mind would have probably happened right before your picture ^_^
Anime-Master Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
love Jaina! She be a raging *runs away*. Loving the eyes. Isn't Tides of War just a really good book! ^^
Leoren Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh my god, I looked at the change between the old her and new...and I nearly cried.
Where has my dear, sweet Jaina gone? Damn you, Garrosh! I hope Blizzard will at least have Jaina kick his sorry ass!

But, despite that, I love this (and the other drawing), they are both so beautiful and well done. I'm wondering why I haven't seen them before? Instant favorites!
Jaydekim Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013   Digital Artist
Thanks, I cried a lot while reading.
she held against all adversity until now, from just 20s.
so hope to jaina will be happy after.
Leoren Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I haven't read it yet, but I plan too. Though I'm trying to read as many WoW books in order of their lore (I even have a list), so that might be awhile... ^^;
I hope so too. But she did survive the destruction of Lordaeron, and fighting Arthas himself, so I think she has a pretty good chance of healing. I just hope the Blizzard doesn't completely turn her into a hateful war-monger...WoW has enough of those kind of characters already.
DarthYan Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013
she's moved out of that phase. She abandoned the "kill all orc plans" and flat out told Anduin that she is not proud of what she planned to do to Orgrimmar
Leoren Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, I read that she decided not to kill a whole bunch of orcs, but I didn't know about that. That makes me glad. :)
OceanFire9 Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013
Until she purged Dalaran all "FOR THE ALLIANCE!" style.
*sadness* Why Jaina? Why? ... I mean I *know* "why," but really.

she's still not at genocide
