crash of empire by breath-art crash of empire by breath-art
The days when great troll empires stretched across ancient
The savage trolls of Azeroth are infamous for their cruelty, dark mysticism, and seething hatred for all other races.
Kalimdor are long past. Millennia of war and internal strife have stripped these nations of their power, lands, and glory. As Azeroth recovers from the destruction of the Cataclysm, the world's divided troll populations face a bleak future. These dark times have spurred the trolls of the Zandalar, the historically wise and scholarly tribe from which all trolls originated, to take drastic action. They have embarked on a bold crusade to save their race by uniting trolls into a single mighty empire. With the Zandalari's aid, the fallen capitals of the Gurubashi and Amani nations -- Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman -- are already rebuilding, replenishing their forces for a bloody campaign to expand their territories.....

from Blizzard offical history board~~

the work spend me more time(about a week) to collect the background and characters of the troll,so many dungons and boss they have,it seem the troll is the most popular enemy in Azeroth,so it is difficult to choose a whole story to rope the troll, but the animal worship is going trough all troll story,so I make the annmal half-god to be main characters in this pic,and the fight to bugs and high-elves history should not be forgoten,and the sunken temple and Zul-farrak is the early classic dungons and then the others is waiting for you to found out~~

hope you like this pic~~~

Very nice but the Trolls empires (Amani and Gurubashi) were destroyed by the nelves thousand years before the war of the ancient, after the Cataclysm they started to rebuild their empires again.

Epic stuff!
KibaWolf06 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012
Ahh... I wish I could say something really constructive about this, but I'm not really sure what to say. I came to check out your profile on DA because of a comment on WoW's website and I was highly impressed with all of your art... but this one... I just love the style. It's so fitting for the dungeons it represents. Although I have to say, being the nerd I am, there's a high nostalgia factor here as well. The colors are spot on as well. Great job; please keep it up!

wow..the amount of detail :)

Once again you have impressed me with your epic skillz.

I love how this one looks like a mural you would find in aztec, incan, or miyan city. With the spirals and the square and other details too.

If you were to place this in a mexican pyramid, it would fit in with the rest of the ornate murals already there. Unless someone were to take a closer look, they would never notice.
