BlizzCon Original Art Contest Entry

BlizzCon Original Art Contest Entry

Below is my submission to the BlizzCon Original Art Contest. The contest asks for submissions of original art based on any of the Blizzard Entertainment game franchises. As a fan of of Warcraft in particular, I wanted to do something based on the World of Warcraft franchise. Since there would be a lot of insanely polished digital art by people who should be working for Blizzard, I wanted to take a different route and do something with a limited palette and more graphic style.

The concept is that the undead dragon (Sindragosa) makes the silhouette of the main bad guy (The Lich King) in the second expansion of World of Warcraft, The Wrath of the Lich King. Below is the Lich King’s sword and his undead army on the march.

It was a challenge to manipulate the two characters to look like each other. I had fun anyway, hope you like it.
