Here are two Warcraft fan art pieces we would like to show. It's been a long a time since we did some good old fan art :D We recently finished The Frozen Throne expansion and as a celebration we made these.....hope you like the result

EDIT: Our site seems to be unaccessible for some people...it must be a maintenance check of some sort to different nodes. For the time being...here are the pics mirrored by Fitharn....many thanks!( bedankt :thumbsup: )

W0000! Looking great!
Especially like the bottom one, the whole atmosphere that it has to it.
Keep up the good work! :thumbsup:

Really nice drawings with great colors and mood.
But IMO the giant looks a little bit to nice to be in the company of the other really evil looking guys. Although he looks stupid, and could be thinking he's on his way to an evening of poker. :)

Anyways, :thumbsup:

You seem to use one color to define all of the shadows... there's hardly any contrast within them.

You might want to add some darker and lighter shadows in to this.

the bear is great!

The Mountain Giant has always been my favourite frozen throne character :) Who can resist that happy face. Though I like the expression he has in the game even more, he looks kinda puzzled all the time ;)

well... You know it's great... Keep drawing mountain giants! ;)

You didnt show these at penciljack did ya? (im A.M. there btw)

Awesome job though they seem a tad unfinished at some points, as if you rushed them a little, unlike most of the other stuff on your site.
But nu zit ik gewoon te miereneuken ;), heheh.

Exxelent, these 2 go into my special cool warcraft 3 pictures folder :)

We can't thank enough you guys :bowdown:

We truly appreciate that you guys recognize that 'semi-cartoony' Blizzard style...personally we do think our style has been inspired by Blizzard's, but we still felt that we needed to implement other remaining charasteristics into these pieces to make them have that pure Blizzard style :)

Hope there aren't anymore problems with accessing the pics...there was probably a maintenance check on our site. Hope everything's running smoothly now.

These two fan art pieces were not only made for the celebration on beating TFT.....but also for another related grand occassion ;) Soon soon....

Thanks again guys.

And to mhinne@sci.kun.nl please! I can mirror them too if more people can't view it.

*edit: Twincruiser just mailed us the pics. I know some more people can't view the image so I mirrored them here:

Amazing work Twincruiser. I have a hard time deciding which one I like the most... I think the night elf one.. I really love the grass.

You've done justice to the Warcraft francise here. I do have more of a liking for the 2nd pic due to the composition itself amongst the warmth and general mood. Your choice of colors is complementary and quite pleasing actually. But I do have to agree about the giant appearing to friendly. But all in all very well done.

You have received the CGtalk choice award .Please feel free to display this image anywhere you like! Nice work!

upon receiving this award, it guarantees you a spot in the cgtalk gallery hall of fame (http://gallery.cgtalk.com) - which you are now placed
