    Finally got off my toosh and finished some Wildstar art. Originally I was planning on a Spellslinger, but not entirely sure as I still want to see the remaining races/classes. In any case, the sketch I had deserved to be finished.

    Rackham Dane, space wrangler of Algoroc. - background is some Carbine concept art so I can't take credit for that. ;)

    ** UPDATED MAY 5, 2013 **

    Came up with a new idea after I read the speculations about the remaining "engineer" type class. I wondered what kind of Cassian would use a large rifle and the thought occurred to me that he could be some kind of "big-game hunter", camped out on Deradune and pulling together hunting parties with Draken guides.

    Hence this picture popped into my head:

    Think Quigley Down Under meets Teddy Roosevelt and Hemet Nesingwary Jr. from Warcraft. ;)

    Always loved your stuff, it's really great to see you doing WildStar stuff too. Is Mr. Dane going to be Dominion or Exile?

    Awesome! This looks great! The soft smoke/heat coming off the gun works well together with the sharper edged style of the guy.

    Your background reminds me of the Montana state flag, btw.. :p

    I hope to see more art from you!

    Thanks guys!

    Originally I was intending this guy to be Exile, but you're right in that he could also be Cassian. The original sketch had the Exiles skull logo on his shoulder, but I left it out in the final work. Might still add it later...

    I have a couple of other sketches in a rougher stage that I'll be toying with over the next bit. Stay tuned as I'm planning on posting more stuff!

    Awesome!
    Being an Exile player at heart, I of course know where my vote would fall, but the Dominion is pretty damn epic too, so it can be a tough choice :D

    Looking forward to seeing more! Your Witch Doctor Rahckam from GW2 was always one of my favorites!

    You added a very nice steam punky style to it. Great work chum!

    Ha! He's awesome! I love the action-hero pose and logo styling, gives the whole picture a great "Epic Adventure Story" feel!

    Great job! He has kind of a "did I do that" look to him.

    Sweet work, Rackham! I love how dynamic that pose is with that torso twist and the way his pinky fingers aren't just totally tightened around the grip of his pistols. :inlove:

    Added my latest artwork, a Cassian Big Game Hunter - taking some speculations from the remaining "rifle" class we've yet to see.
    Kurik, Dysp and Lumzk like this.

    Damn... that's very cool. What type of "tails" are those? My first thought was Aurin-tails... small ones.. or the backside of Aurin-ears. An Exile Aurin hunter?? :confused: ..could be something else, but I'm going to assume he's an Aurin hunter.

    I was going for Aurin, although I know they're a little small. They could be just the ends of the tails.
    Also for the inquisitive, there's another set of "trophies" from another Exile race. ;)
