Concept and inspiration  
1small Making of the Blood elf
Not much to say here.
After quite a long time of no free-time personal projects, I run across a sketch of a blood elf from Blizzard and I was flooded with inspiration. I then gathered a few more sketches by samwise and at a certain point I had a very clear picture in my mind on the whole composition and on very specific things like the armor’s design. I should note that the sketches sparked it for me and helped my inspiration run, but I was in no way trying to duplicate it, I wanted to give it my own design.

The Blood elf is all about layers of objects on top of each other. I’ve started with a generic male model which I already had and used just as reference. The first thing I modeled was the base robe underneath everything, when I was happy enough with it I got rid of the body model. I then started modeling all the parts of the armor going from chest to bottom, then the shoulder parts, the mask, and all the parts of the cape.
