Short nightly drawing based on the GW2 Guardian class and the Sylvari (humanoid-plant) race.

Wow, absolutely stunning. This fits in with the aesthetic of the GW2 concept art perfectly.

Its an interesting combination, a Sylvari Guardian. Not the kind of thing one expects a Sylvari to be at all ,but it works awwesomely, and I kidn of feel like you've made the armor fit the Sylvari theme too which is awesome :)

Thanks, Guardian seemed to be the best profession choice for my Sylvari character. I guess it's the idea that I see Guardians as a kind of "white knight" type of class. Seemed a bit fitting for a Sylvari since they're supposed to be pure/innocent.

Though I like the idea that the melee profession gives her a bit of an attitude. Also that I see her not being nearly as naive or childlike as other Sylvari.

Thats fair enough. I can see your connection there, It just probably wouldn't have occurred to me to see a Sylvari carrying plate armor and heavy melee weapons haha. I suppose there's no reason why not! :D

Yeah, the whole "Sylvari wearing platemail" thing didn't compute in my head either. Since this was technically my first draft of the character, her armor/weapon turned more into bark/thorns in the other piece.

Yeah solid bark and thorns makes heaps more sense. I love that idea actually. Well conceived :D

Brilliant work there. I love seeing all the amazing gw2 fan art that's coming out. I would live to contribute some of my own sometime but I just don't have time.

Thanks, be sure to check out my newer GW2 related works since this one is really old and kind of "meh". Have fun in the Beta tomorrow.

Thank you for the heads up, I'll check them out now! Oh, and don't worry I had an awesome time. I hope you did too! What characters are you playing? I'm trying a Charr Theif, a Human Necro and a Norn Guardian :)

At the moment, I'm pretty much set on: Human Warrior & Thief, Sylvari Guardian, Charr Necro, Asuran Engineer, Norn Ranger.
