Battle Ready by Mr--Jack Battle Ready by Mr--Jack
Along with the new Heroes announced at Gamescom, I was there to do a live art demo across the 4 convention days, and here it is!
I had a blast working on stage, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. After 4 and a half hours on stage it was pretty close to being done, took another hour or so to finish it up once I made it back to the US.

I honestly wonder how these characters would react to meeting each other for the first time!

especially Sonya and Abathur!

Oh wow, I saw you on stage, that was a really interesting talk.  Hehehe the "uncanny valley" remark from the presenter made me laugh XD  Great work by the way!

You are my inspiration man. I always have this urge to paint after seeing your works. I really hope that someday, I could work at Blizzard too. It's been my dream since I was 9. It's my number 1 life goal.

You're my favorite Blizzard artist and your body of work over the years is incredible.  This of course is no exception!  I wish I could have been there for your live demo!

"weird monster on the left"

That's Abathur. He basically designed upgrades to a whole species called the Zerg. 

"flying chameleon thing"

That's Brightwing, a Faerie Dragon, who is single-handedly cute and creepy at the same time. Also she's a healer.

Great combination of colours, and I can see each character could easily work well on its own :)  What really got me, is the faerydragons expression though, that's great :D

5.5 hours for this? What drugs are you on again?

lol, for real though great work! Your goopy zerg bubbles are always awesome and I love the second read demon hunter in the background. I really like the barbarian's belt too, nice simple shapes and it totally reads.
