Into the Fray by Art-Zealot Into the Fray by Art-Zealot
Edit: I'm on Sanctum of Rall server/world now.

Once again, a doodle has raged out of control...

I just couldn't keep myself from putting this to canvas after the second Beta Weekend for Guild Wars 2 came to an incredible finish. Dang, Arenanet...you really know how to end with a bang! I don't think I've ever had as much fun in all my years of online gaming as I did in that single span of 30 minutes.

Don't believe me? Check it out: [link] . I didn't record my own experience, but I sincerely wish I had.

Players on each server (Yak's Bend, ftw) gathered in the Plains of Ashford and faced off against the minions of the Crystal Dragon Kralkatorrik. But the odds quickly turned against us as each player killed became a corrupted dragon minion!

Illustrated here is our final stand as the dragon minions finally overwhelmed my sister and I (who were sitting across from each other at our computers, trying not to scream aloud and wake our parents at 3:00 in the morning). My sister was playing an Elementalist (left) and I was a Guardian (right). Both characters were designed after our existing characters, Storm and Ronak.

I took a lot of creative liberties with the crystal minions and armor, so I doubt it's very accurate. Regardless, I hope it accurately sums up the desperation and craziness (and fun!) that was the finale.

Brilliant work! I'm extremely sad that I missed the last 30 mins or so of the event, but you've done a great job of depicting it here - well done! :D

You're welcome. Keep it up. I love seeing fresh GW2 artwork :D Who knows maybe sometime I'll have the time to actually properly do some of my own :)

Amen to that :) There needs to be, like an artist's guild or something that artists join that creates a community in game and out to support the artists who love the game.
