I have to say, I was really surprised and excited when Cool told me the Blood Elf previews were coming out the next day. Holy crap, not long to go now but the wait…

Talk about an anxious day (and night) of wondering how my beloved race would look, especially now that I have a kick-ass NPC to represent the Blood Elves. Sadly, I fell asleep before they had released the latest Artcraft update but I awoke to find Cool trying to get my attention in-game.

At first, I wasn’t sure about the face because it’s quite different from what I’d imagined but her body is HOT! She’s definitely more defined (just as I imagine Cymre Jones to be – athletic and agile) so Cymre Brightblade is going to look the lithe relic hunter I expect her to be. Her hands look a little more proportional and no more flipper feet! I wonder how thongs will look on her feet now? The underwear was a nice touch and she’s looking a lot perkier than before. Her eyes don’t have such an intense glow which I love. She looks a lot more natural, yet still feminine. This is a great preview and I can’t wait to see the final versions in-game.

The males are also looking very impressive with that physique and manlier face. They look a little more rugged but not overly done – what’s with that spiked nail though?

All-in-all, I think a lot of people will be pleased with the progress. I know I am.
