Another one of my WoW characters (who i have drawn before, tho not as a blood elf), Chandrika, a rogue mage. I cant remember which Chandrika i created first, my original story Chandrika or WoW Chandrika, but both of them has strong connections to the ocean. In WoW-verse, shes a fugitive hunted down by a certain mage group after she broke her allegiance w them, but seeing as a significant amount of her powers are associated w that same group, using even the slightest amount of it will alert them of her whereabouts.
When designing Chandrika, what i had in mind was someone who doesnt like talking. Despite that, her presence (when she chooses not to hide it) is still very 'loud'; shes not ashamed to be curious w her eyes n hands while still making the boundaries between her n others very clear. Shes prone to anger n is very easily provoked, but her emotions r also quick to die down, which is why she chooses not to be around most people.
Like Nanjuni, i want to try showing stages of her outfit; the difference between the third and fourth look from the left is her increasing level of readiness, but they can also be her hot weather n cold weather getups. WoW's in-game armor can be very impractical (sorry blizz i still want u to hire me) so i try to make my designs the opposite while still retaining its fantastical n stylized nature. Shes proud of her fisherman origins, but it's not rly obvious in her style (especially in the fourth outfit) because of the influence of the mage group shes running away from; shes a very 'steal it from ur oppressors n make it urs' type. In terms of arcane magic, Chandrika's powers mostly come from her hands, hence the strict arm guards to repress them while still loose enough to allow energy circulation. She keeps her core n legs lightly geared because she knows theyre very enduring thanks to swimming a lot growing up. Also because ive been rewatching korra.........basically dia waterbender hehe :(
