Arthas Menethil, the Lich King by ChaoyuanXu Arthas Menethil, the Lich King by ChaoyuanXu
Arthas Menethil, Crown Prince of Lordaeron and Knight of the Silver Hand, was the son of King Terenas Menethil II and heir to the throne. He was trained as a paladin.

Despite his promising beginnings, Arthas became one of the most powerful and evil beings Azeroth would ever know. Taking up the cursed runeblade Frostmourne, he became a death knight, led the Scourge in destroying Lordaeron, and became the Lich King.

Yet, no king rules forever. The legendary Lich King finally met his ends in the hands of the Argent Crusader and the Knights of the Ebon Blade.

Why did they have to kill him.
He was a great character.
And why did they have to do it in world of warcraft...
I want them to make a warcraft 4 :c

I love this one, so much! Arthas (as Lich King) Is my number 1 favourite villan in the Warcraft universe, and you managed to make him (and Frostmourne) look -amazing-, lots of detail. Love the pose and the background looks really great too. :D

This is one of my favorite pieces since I started collecting art by people like Larry Elmore when I was young. I have not played WoW in a couple years now and this makes me want to go back and just hang out in the frozen wastes :)

I would love to buy this print in canvas, but I cannot do so since it has the "letter-box" type format.

Any plans of doing a version that would full a full 20x30 canvas?
