This was a sketch I had originally held on to for the coloring contest I was going to do but never got around to it. I had a lot of fun coloring this, and the scaling really pushed me to do more texture. :D Pretty much the story behind me finishing this is that :thedarkstrider: asked me to after I showed him this as a reference that I could do "mermaids". And I just want to give you a big ol' thank you for that, without you she would have never been colored.

the description I worked from:
"In her new form, Azshara stands over twenty feet in height and moves her scale covered body on five slithering, octopus-like tentacles. Four arms now extend from the torso, with two hands holding javelins of dark polished wood and gold-leafed tips. Like her Sea Witches, Azshara's head is crowned by writhing serpents. Despite her monstrosity, her face still possesses the same elven beauty she always had"

Although I didn't make her 20 ft tall, and I wanted to base her slightly more like the statues you see of her around the world (of warcraft) ^.~ Shes pretty much a combination of current models and other fanart mixed and done to my own beat. I hope they do bring her into Warcraft one day, she really kinda fascinates me :o

**Udpate** Apperently Azshara is in game, but its a rehashed model of Lady Vashj, which I think for a major lore character she would be a custom model. So yeah. Also I didn't know that they recently have some character concept work of her that I found on MMO that was posted a couple month's ago. So I fail :< But I still like the way she turned out. And plus keep in mind this sketch was done about a year and half ago, waaaayyy before Cata was released. And is thus based more of the in-game models of the statues of her :)

I "think" this is the official work of her if I am wrong please let me know: [link]
