Nightelf Tree of Life form by Triggerman Nightelf Tree of Life form by Triggerman
For people on US forums (28:th April -09) [link]

This reskin has nothing to do with the Teldrassil Sproutling. My reskin has taken inspiration from that skin which has been in WoW since forever, any likeness is just a coincidence.

On a requested request by Phaelia on her blogsite [link] for Restoration Druids which I tend to read, I made a Nightelf Tree of Life with my customized reskin of Tree of Life.
Took about +2h or so to make this one.

41.000 views? I mean it's just a Photoshopped wallpaper!
I appreciate it but what the heck!

Backgrounds taken from the game, characters and spell-effects from WoWModelViewer then editted together in Photoshop.

PS, I've been in love with your art for ages, but never got around to fav'ing it here on DA. xD

I couldn't agree more. My druid has always had white hair and I desperately want the "white tree" skin from borean tundra. Blizzard argues that moonkin and tree are newer and don't need the overhaul as bad but personally I found the fact that they said they would redo swim form first insulting.

I'm from the horde.. but I like this trees more then tauren version
Fearylynn Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2009
I'm in love.

I never thought anything could replace my sea turtle wallpaper, but this shall!

Another question, I would like to use this in a layout, but that would require some tweaking *mostly for size...don't want to change a thing!*

Would that be ok?

...myeaoaoaoh... I might use these myself for a web design, would be awesome to let the person change the look of my site to say Tree of Life Nightelf/Tauren theme, Moonkin Tauren/Nightelf and so on, and I might use that as a background if so.

But I guess you can use it, we'll see if I might "reclaim it" at a later point.
Fearylynn Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2009
Well I don't want it for anything big or professional.

I just want to use it on my blog. :-)


Just let me know if you want me to stop using it.
kryssar Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2009
i LOVE it ! wicked nice work =)
was browsing the web for a nice wallpaper to use and stumbled upon this. Tried google for tons of various combinations in order to find a nice wallpaper of a resto tree, but without luck

and then this ?
sorry for the french, but goddamn!
and i'm a frequent visitor of resto4life so this all just makes it even better. Thanks for saving my day

I guess that purple has that effect that it attracts people :)

Who cares if its just a photoshoped screenshot?
it looks good and thats what matters! :D

Love your reskins - I couldn't imagine going back to plain after using NE tree (we were so meant to be purple!). It's amazing how much certain aesthetics can spice up the entire game, and I'd like to thank you for taking the time to polish up that piece of what Blizz has apparently forgotten. Awesome work (and taste). Much <3

Thanks :)

Looks wonderful; though I noticed something that didn't look right ... the left tree guardian's arm/hand isn't blurred. It doesn't seem to be in perspective as it is sharp, like the main figure.

Just a thought -- otherwise, great work! It's inspired me to do a little of my own fan art.

oo my god.. QQ so pretty!
DragonF1re Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2008
lol... Browsing DA, then decied'd to open mmo, and it linked me back to DA!

Nice pic :D

Nekrov Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2008
pretty cool...
damn, i like it :)
azbulldog Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008
Yea if only Blizzard would give the Night Elf druids a more purple texture for their Tree of Life, like some of the other ents around the game.

Nice work though, very pretty.
madswh Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008
Amazing wallpapers! I hope you will make a Tauren Tree next time you are bored :D
Triggerman Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
I will, actually.
It's already half-finished.
Nerahla Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is beautiful, but I have to ask - do you use screenshots and just augment them with a little painting over for glow effects and what not? It's what it looks like but I'm just curious.

I'm mostly asking because I think it's cool and an efficient way to make some lovely fanart without having to worry about drawing :P (You can see my two attempts in my gallery haha)
Triggerman Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Yep, it's just WoWModelEdit and touches with drawing-tablet with glow and whatnot, basically adding whatever I think is suitable.
But it's not original hand-drawn art, I do one of these wallpapers in like 2-3h or so, just something to do while I'm bored really.
Nerahla Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Very cool :) Thanks for sharing your method!

Mhm ^^
Someone sent a mail saying it was featured, nice stuff :) Sadly peeps probably haven't seen my UI I've done though but /care :p
ANNAMMU Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2008
As one of the lunatics that has played a Resto clear through I applaud you and thank you for sharing your talent in this way.
Nunecow Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2008
Amazing! I love your reskins too :(

Too bad Blizz can't do something as great as what you did! :)
Codemaster007 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2008
Most excellent! I love your reskin (though I don't have it installed). A great wallpaper! But I must ask--do you happen to have a version for a wide screen monitor?
Triggerman Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Ehm, no sadly I don't.
Don't have a widescreen myself so it's a bit hard taking those kinds of screenshots.
I'd imagine it would be alot better with widescreen tho... anyway, no can do but thanks for the comment :)
