I stumbled across an absolutely beautiful series of Warcraft race icons, and immediately had to start playing with them. The original images for these icons were created by the wonderfully talented ropa-to, who created them as a series of tattoos- check out all of his awesome work while you’re there!
I thought it would be fun to run his original black and white designs through Illustrator to create some variations on ropa-to’s theme, taking inspiration from Vector Mill’s crate packages (creator Ryan Putnam also runs the indispensible free vector tutorial site vectips.com).
The first series is a ballpoint pen style, and the second is a carved wood style.
As ever, enjoy the icons and backgrounds for your personal, non-profit use.
