So, what is the job you're doing here? I don't understand... or.... I understand that, painting over a 3d model? is this for Dota2?

As pointed out below, (and sorry for the slow reply), yah, we're clashing each of our IPs together in this game, and instead if basing it on one of them specifically this cyber-world-ish middle ground is where we ended up basing the whole thing, and we can branch out from there.

sounds kinda fun to work on it. So, do you work at blizzard? are you specialized in characters, or they asks you also to work on backgrounds and other stuff as props, etc?

It's mooostly characters, specially lately, but I do some environment stuff now and then.
And yeah, this project is definitely a lot of fun because we get to do both ends of the spectrum, the sci fi and fantasy stuff :D

It's for the new game of Blizzard - Heroes of The Storm.
The characters will be selected from the Blizzard's games - Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo.
The game will be similar to DoTA.

Sounds interesting. the thing I really wanted to know was about this sci-fi abstract background on fantasy characters. Now I understand

For the life of me, I do not understand why his blades have that weird-ass elaborate design in front which seems to reduce their cutting surface area. Also, is he really that wrinkly/bitter?

:iconantaria-nova:
Antaria-Nova Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2014
Because magic? :P
Also, those talon-like parts close to the middle where his hands are, I bet those still hurt, not to mention cut well enough.
Though, I don't see why there isn't any cutting edge right in the middle, since that would allow a very long uninterrupted slash, not to mention it would also look good, and make more sense. 
Keeping in mind game characters and other designs don't always need to make perfect sense, at least when it comes to something clearly fictional, I guess we can just say "Looks pretty good, but could make more sense while looking better still.", right?

Trying to rationalize something fictional or something that isn't rational to begin with isn't the best way to spend your time. :D

btw are you required to release the arts of heroes according to a fixed/predetermined sequence or you can pick freely? I have special love for the siege tank so just wonder lol

Although I know these are painted over 3d models, there are really no such traces from what I can tell.

This is the version of illidan before he was released from his prison. Thus, no demon powers... Unless they pull some transformation bs in the game.

Illidan had some demon powers even before he consumed the Skull of Gul'dan. Sargeras took his eyes and replaced them with magical ones, as well as marking him with those tattoos. Combined with Illidan's talent for magic, it wasn't hard for him to use demonic magic after that.

because this incarnation is before he turned into a demon himself. notice he doesn't have his horns either. this is his night elf form, not his satyr/demon form.

Yeah, I get that but the glowing eyes and tattoos were something that only happened when he had the skull.

He also had the eyes and tattoos at one point before he consumed the skull. Go ahead and take a look at how Demon Hunters looked in Warcraft 3, you'll see he had those. All the skull mainly did was making him bigger, give him hooved feet, wings and horns.

Hmm I can't remember exact details but maybe it's just a mix-up. Blizzard is good at that lately. Maybe we're both mis-remembering and there was a stage in between? =)
