Day 1 of 21


Illustrated byalexnegrea

“I was happy to paint Mercy because I really like the vibe of the character. The painting process was a challenging one but definitely a great experience!”

Day 2 of 21


Illustrated byTsaoShin

“Genji’s stealthy combat moves, sleek design, and fusion between man and machine offers so much in the way of inspiration.  Ultimately, I chose a composition that would put him into a menacing stance paired with threatening glow of the giant dragon summoned during his Dragonblade ability.”

Day 3 of 21


Illustrated bylarienne

“I fell in love with Hanzo the moment I saw him! His wonderful design, heartbreaking backstory and badass weapon turned drawing him into a true, one of a kind adventure!”

Day 4 of 21


Illustrated byKate-FoX

“Symmetra is an interesting, attractive character with a unique design and drawing her was a fascinating experience. I’ve always liked such characters, that’s why it was a pleasure to fulfill this commision.”

Day 5 of 21


Illustrated byrossdraws

“Illustrating Reaper was an enjoyable experience for me. His essence really came through his design which helped me create this piece for him.”

Day 6 of 21


Illustrated byKNKL

“Pharah’s stylish hair and mech suit are my favorite things about her. It was challenging drawing her from this angle, but the feeling of looking up at her while taking in the details of her character made it all worth it!”

Day 7 of 21


Illustrated bytheCHAMBA

“I always find it extremely fun to draw the characters that are somewhat outside the norm for me. I’m used to drawing super physically fit characters, so the overall design and anatomy of Roadhog looked wickedly fun for me. A welcomed change of pace!”

Day 8 of 21


Illustrated byRy-Spirit

“Drawing Widowmaker was a joy, she’s beautiful and stylish but also evil. It was definitely fun drawing her even though my greatest fear is spiders.”

Day 9 of 21


Illustrated byGENZOMAN

“I love everything related to the old west! It is always great to find a character like the gunslinger Jesse McCree, an anachronic classical western outlaw in the ScFi themed game of Overwatch. Not only because he has a lot of personality, but also he offers a nice contrast between technology and the classic western icons.  I had a really nice time painting this piece, playing with the concept of a character that can be very good at aiming, but also to show he is good to evade and run.”

Day 10 of 21


Illustrated byDanLuVisiArt

“I grew up on Blizzard games as a young teen, being a big fan of Diablo 1-3. Now being able to paint one of their characters for their latest game, Overwatch is now a personal notch I can check off. Thank you for this awesome opportunity.”

Day 11 of 21


Illustrated byChasingArtwork

“When drawing this character, I had a ton of fun playing with the idea that this is a spiritual robot with a faith, I had wanted to create an image that makes people think "ethereal", a robotic god of sorts. He should look like he’s at one with the universe. Or at least trying for it.  It’s a very different character type, “Robotic Monk” is a unique descriptor. Very fun to draw.”

Day 12 of 21


Illustrated byPicolo-kun

“When I was drawing Winston I wanted to bring to life this animal nature that makes him unique. Thus I chose to illustrate his "Primal Rage" mode with loads of brutal force and primal energy.”

Day 13 of 21


Illustrated byGUWEIZ

“D.Va was a fun but challenging character to draw! The bright color palette and energy are her strongest selling points for me and I tried my best to create a piece that would show that off!”

Day 14 of 21


Illustrated byRaichiyo33

“I immediately thought of extreme sports like snowboarding or rollerblading. The sports and the athletes movements really helped me with figuring out the pose for him along with other inspirational characters from past early 2000’s games, which I was really fond of when I was young. He has surprisingly a lot of detail which proved difficult drawing them in angle. Anyways, he was fun to draw!”

Day 15 of 21


Illustrated byCharlie-Bowater

“I had a lot of fun painting him in a more illustrative style and it was a nice change of pace for me.”

Day 16 of 21


Illustrated byClaparo-Sans

“My first impression of Mei was that of an adorable sister that you’d feel comfortable hanging out with. Everything about Mei can be described as cuteness, I really enjoyed painting her chubby cheeks, fluffy coat. My favorite detail is how she holds her pinky finger up when holding a gun, which is such a feminine detail about her. Drawing the weapon was quite a challenge, but fortunately I was able to paint it in my favorite color (blue). All in all it turned out to be a great experience.”

Day 17 of 21

Soldier 76

Illustrated byeinlee

“I was really drawn by his back story, one of such loss and disillusionment. Instead of his usual guns-blazing badass look, I tried to capture the more human side of him that urges him to carry on despite his weariness, bound by duty. Here he is during a moment of repose after a long day.”

Day 18 of 21


Illustrated bynakanoart

“As an avid gamer, I was already anticipating the release of Overwatch. So when I was presented with the opportunity to draw Reinhardt, a character who I was itching to play, I jumped at the chance! I’ve already played many tank-type characters, so I chose to portray him in a way that highlights his role: battle-worn and bravely leading the charge for his team”

Day 19 of 21


Illustrated byserafleur

“It was an enthralling but challenging experience for me to be able to draw that wasn’t what I usually draw. At first, I was overwhelmed by her strong personality and her complex design but the longer I paint Zarya, the more her design becomes interesting and fun. I learned so much throughout the process of painting Zarya that broaden my knowledge to character designing so I think it was meant that she was my chosen character.”

Day 20 of 21


Illustrated byAyyaSAP

“Bastion—It’s a very unusual character with interesting story. In my illustration I would like to show Bastion as himself—kind, loving nature and all living things, but still able to stand up for himself and for those he loves. In that episode he saves cute rabbits from danger and he had to use force.”

Day 21 of 21


Illustrated byScebiqu

“Torbjörn is a more defensive weaponsmith character building up lines of turrets to aid his team. But he’s also a badass looking space dwarf with robotic claw and a flame-spewing forge on his back. I thought portraying him in the midst of a raging battle, manning the barricades would fit his character well and I really had fun doing that.”

Wait. What?

You all had an event for Overwatch? Is this still going on? Or did you just gather art that already existed?

Arjoplog Featured By Owner Edited Nov 1, 2016
YEAH! THAT WAS AWESOME! So glad to be part of this game! I already have good memories of this game and I have created a Discord server for it. Thank you Blizzard for creating Overwatch!! I have never felt so much emotional attachment to a game since my first game which was Halo. That led to all sorts of great memories and I'm sure Overwatch is going to deliver some more. That surely means this is more than a decent game, hell, this is the best game of my time. Its probably going to be one of the best games I play in my entire life. Thank you Blizzard. :3.

(even though these artists already probably have all the credit they need and more I just wanted to comment on this amazing page )

creativitieskey Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Personally I keep finding my life is getting lost playing overwatch! I tired of the Call of duty franchise, and halo etc...... then bam! overwatch comes out and I'm madly hooked on online FPS multiplayer gaming again! For me It is a fantastic game, one that's just full of fun and laughs, it doesn't anger me like other games have in the past! I can easily go on play and lose 6 hours of my life in one sitting having an awesome amount of fun! So well done to blizzard for bringing me back to multi-player gaming! As for the fan art  WTG! some absolutely amazing artwork! I'm loving seeing the way people are interpreting the charactors! Its fantastic! <3 much love.
Garaladin Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2016
I wonder how DeviantArt chooses who they commission... 

These drawings are really great, but to be in a showcase like this I'd expect even better. Just my 2 cents.
Reinhold-Hoffmann Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2016
Blizzard commissioned them not dA I think. Personally I like all 21 artworks but I believe a ton of "real" fans of the game did a better job. In some of these artworks it can be seen that the artists had no connection to the characters, most of them never played the game I guess.
Garaladin Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2016
Yeah, that's sort of the same feeling I had.

Just so much money for something that TF2 is. I would play if I had the cash.

Overwatch is so freaking addictive and fun. You have no idea how much I love this game. I'm almost done with my review of it. :D

looks cool!
Katze-Doshi Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Watched the trailers, cinematics, and official comics of Overwatch a few months ago. I like the characters, Really want to know more about them.
Plus, There are many surprisingly good fanarts made by talented artists here. Would love to see more of it.
Fan-Annagen Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I literally discovered and watched the trailer a week before this happened and though it was just an animation short.  Then I saw this sort of art being used in all sort of YouTube chillstep and softstep tracks and thought it's a fan project. Now it turns out to be an actual thing! Internet is misinforming me O_O Keep me up with the hot stuff, net, not only 'related' stuff I'm already sick of, yo.

I...can't wait till my favorite letsplayers get into Overwatch. Anybody else thinks it is just about time we start coming up with more, new superheros? We've been dancing around DC and Marvel for those far too long.
