Och gods, Malfurion is my dream-man, the vision of perfect male! And I'm really aberrant to shiny eyes, claws, horns and long ears <3 And Tyrande is so beautiful, fierce and elegant like some hunt-goddess... love them both, really. And I love that Warcraft made elves so epic, they're not gay-like fairies, who spent their whole immortality on sighing for butterflies, playing harp, singing stupid songs and writing poetry, but fighting hard to defend the heart of their lands like elves should. They're powerful, much more powerful than many other races, but not f*cking sweety perfect like diamonds.
But I have to agree with your point. On the contrary of common belief that elves live as if they were living in paradise, Blizzard has really made the elves something bold and strong of their own. And not just the elves, it includes all of the races in the Warcraft universe.
I just love this SO much, no words can explain really. The shadow over his face, the way his eyes glow i her direction <3 Malfurion and Tyrande are probably my fav npc in WoW (along with Lorewalker cho and Chen Stormstout ) Thanks for such an amazing art
