Cool work.
Somehow looks like he was feeling like king of the world but close to be slaughtered down by that dragon he doesn't notice... ;)

Just wondering, was the mild "pixelarization" intentional or am I seeing it wrong?

Also something that crossed my mind, you can notice the difference between bmp and jpeg in this as well. The Lich King and Sindragosa were saved as bmp and the Icecrown was an actual in-game screenshot saved as jpeg.

There's actually a more convenient way to capture screenshots in WoW. Since the game itself saves the snapshots in .jpeg, I started to use other software like Fraps or anything else that can record .png images. I even remember that there have been a few addons in the past that changed the output format into .png or .gif, and there were also some stand alone addons that acted as a screenshot capture. However I don't know if they still exsist or work in the current version of WoW.



It's definitely worth a look if you intend to do more "in-game" screenshots. Or you could just record the "background" in WoW Map Viewer.

Unintentional. This was due to changing the color values. It always starts out with how WoW saves pictures as jpeg. The format is very low quality and it makes life a whole lot more harder to get rid of those pixel that show (mostly in the sky for this one). I'm working on smoothing it out so it seems more realistic, but this was as good as I could make it.

is this a screenshot from the game itself, or did u manipulate either the game or picture to produce this?

Photo-manipulation. Since I was going for the screenshot-like effect, that's what I labeled it as for :iconthe-warcraft-legion:
