Jenlok teechs u 2 play DURID by aureath Jenlok teechs u 2 play DURID by aureath
Since my original in-game carnation of Jenlok, my troll hunter ended up getting changed into a few races in the past year or two, finally ending up as my goblin hunter Gren. When troll druids were first announced initially I was thinking of making Khemera's daughter Simbe as mine.

And then when the Shattering hit I remembered how much I was missing Jenlok, and went PFFT. He could easily be a druid! So I dusted off my 80 nelf druid I hadn't really touched in forever and gave him a race change.

So here's Jen 2.0. A little older, little more world-weary, a little more animal-y, but still pretty good natured. Wearing my favorite druid tier, the Thunderheart set.

Color in a rush sorta, lots of things I would change or have done differently but WHATEVER IT'S DONE. I may take some commissions for these waist-up style WoW portraits in the future.

That is some pretty armor right there! Love his colors, I can see how he used to be a Night Elf with the purple skin and blue hair. Do you use any kind of texture for your skin? It looks great!
His snakey is cute too. XD

Jen! :D <3 I love this guy bunches. Dammit, you and your awesomeness for armor and animals. Love his face paint and the bird skulls. He does look much more mature and less derpy, but still very happy and Jen-ish. <3

Jenlok, YESSSSSSSSSSS. FINALLY :heart:

Oh, but he does look a bit more world-weary as you say! Like he grew up a bit and is a bit more mature and has a bit wiser-kinder feel to him.

...But I have been working on something for you and it has that kind of snarky spark that he had in his older pics. I'm not in trouble, am I? D:

Veery good! Looks great. But why is the Troll wearing traditional Tauren clothes?

They're not tauren clothes, it's a druid tier set.

Of couse in engine that's a druid set, but take a look at it. It's a traditional Tauren outfit.

Says the chieftain-like armor. Tauren have a native american like culture. Now look at the druid T6 armor. The "helmet" is a feather headdress, the chest armor is also typical native american/tauren like and the bracers and gloves have the little hoof symbols you can find on many many tauren artworks and ingame tauren NPCs.
And sorry, I don't want to offend you but it's simply the truth, druid T6 is the perfect traditional clothing for Taure, especially chiedtains of tribes.

I'm not arguing that it looks tauren-ish rofl but nowhere in lore or otherwise does it say "TAUREN AND TAUREN ONLY", which is what you seemed to claim. It's not a tauren-specific clothing set. Nowhere did Blizzard say that it's official tauren dress. Aaand as you can see I've omitted some of the screamingly Native American-ish influences like the feathered headdress and totem-pole esque design to the shoulders. Bird skulls, bones, bear paws, etc. are otherwise pretty generic. So. There you go.

Okay, so I never >claimed< or tried to claim, that this is a tauren only set, and only tauren are allowed to wear it. I only said, that it is >the< set, that looks most tauren-traditional with the hoofes and all stuff. I was only asking, why the troll, who looks really cool with the painting and the little piercings and all that trollish stuff is wearing a tauren-like set instead of some troll-clothes of zul'aman or something. I did not say, that it looks bad, that you >should< have drawn something different nor trying to tell you, what to do, gosh. I was just asking.
It still is a great picture, I had a reason to watch you and I DO, especially because of your trolls.

no big fan of snakes but that one is an exception x3
That old tier does look good on him, i think it matches with his hair and skin color a lot :)

I like the soft look on his face and that smile, though no complaints or such don't think that but whats with the paint on his face? I like it but is it some tribe thing maybe or has it to do with his class? :)
