The Maelstrom Cataclysm by UnidColor The Maelstrom Cataclysm by UnidColor
This was suppose to be a concept illustration of the maelstrom , its a place within Warcraft, its something I started early this year but it never finished it and I was doing for the fun.

Than I also saw the real footage of it on Youtube when the Cataclysm beta started, and I kinda got abit sad, as it now already exist.

But yeh tried to push it to a finish, cuz I got so mutch sketches and unfinished stuff in my folders.

I had a same feeling of what the maelstrom was. Though I wish the way to go down it was by ship. Kinda of the sensation of the maelstrom from the 3rd Pirates of the Caribbean film.

I had that same experience. I was working on a mock dungeon concept to submit, and then saw the Cataclysm footage and just scrapped all of my Maelstrom concepts, haha. But that's alright. Plenty of lore left for us to draw concepts and fanart from.

This needs to be one of the loading screens for Deepholme! The colors are just so perfect and the tiny boat really gives you a sense of the size of the Maelstrom.

OOohhh, awesome stuff. The tiny little ship does a great job of showing how huge the maelstrom is; and the waves look amazing, especially the translucent ones in the lower right. :)

Thanks alot! it was actually hard to paint the tiny ship, it does not any details beyond the ship itself and the sails, but it was hard to make it look good from far away:)

yeh had to look at alot of reference to figure out how water works and the translucency of it.
