Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men…or…boars?
Well, the answer to that, of course, is The Shadow. The less obvious answer, of course, is the strikingly powerful wizard from Ravenwood Academy. And it’s time to pick apart some new artwork!
Today we got two new pieces of art ostensibly from a soon-to-come update for Wizard101! We could sit and pick them apart, sure, or…we could let you do it! (And offer some prizes for doing so…)
Consider Exhibit A…
The first thing that draws my eye (aside from his lovely golden blonde locks) is his weapon. My first thought was it resembled a Monk’s Spade, a traditional weapon/tool of Shaolin monks of ancient China. The coloring of his garb and weapon are maybe a bit showy for an ancient Chinese monastic order, but it’s worth thinking about. And while we’ve delved deep into an Asian culture in Mooshu, we see more elements of Japanese culture (Samurai, Ninja, etc.) than any other Asian culture.
Let’s dig into Exhibit B:
I believe it’s been dolled up a bit as more of a tourist attraction, but I see some similarities in the structures, particularly the roofs.
Okay, enough of my theorizing, let’s talk about YOURS! Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what you think we’re looking at for the forthcoming Wizard101 update! I’m going to pick one out every day starting tomorrow, October 31, through Wednesday, November 5, and send that person a random pet! Let those creative juices flow and good luck!
