Day 1 of 21

Mercy

:iconalexnegrea:
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

Genji

:icontsaoshin:
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

Hanzo

:iconlarienne:
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

Symmetra

:iconkate-fox:
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

Reaper

:iconrossdraws:
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

Pharah

:iconknkl:
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

Roadhog

:iconthechamba:
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

Widowmaker

:iconry-spirit:
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

McCree

:icongenzoman:
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

Tracer

:icondanluvisiart:
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

Zenyatta

:iconchasingartwork:
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

Winston

:iconpicolo-kun:
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

D.Va

:iconguweiz:
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

Lucio

:iconraichiyo33:
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

Junkrat

:iconcharlie-bowater:
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

Mei

:iconclaparo-sans:
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

:iconeinlee:
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

Reinhardt

:iconnakanoart:
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

Zarya

:iconserafleur:
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

Bastion

:iconayyasap:
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

Torbjorn

:iconscebiqu:
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.”

I'm not a fan of Blizzard at all. I tried WoW but the casual caterig and General lack of care I felt they gave other than "oh look Twitter is connected" mainstream BS - I couldn't respect that. Tbh my life tends to be cute Korean MMOS and competitive like BnS or Mobas like LoL and my hype for Overwatch is unhealthy. I was on the fence but as soon as I played it I instantly fell in love with the dynamically designed maps and colorful characters. Even as an artist myself the inspiration this game exudes is crazy. It won't be everyone's cup of tea but so far none of my friends who love Overwatch as much or more than me are Blizzard fans so I have to disagree.

You have your opinion and I respect it :) Though for me, personally, it feels, like I said before, that there is so much hype around this game just becasue Blizzard made it. Battleborn is also good and, in my opinion, quite similar game - visuals, gameplay and content; yet there isn't so much noise around it. Hope you see my point of view :)

And seriously, this shit is overhyped.

:icontrafficpotato:
TrafficPotato Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
Well to start I lost all respect for your comment right after you used Cancer as an adjective. It's a level of ignorance and immaturity that I hope time will purge. I grew up with my mom battling cancer and today is the 1 year anniversary of my father dying of cancer. It is an ugly horrible thing that shouldn't be used to describe a video game. You never know how it has effected others lives who may read this comment and does nothing but make an ass and a fool of you.

Second off I grew up on Saga, I loved my single player adventures and I have experienced every single gaming system. Not all video games will cater to people who don't enjoy what the masses do. The Internet is an age of connection and what better way to connect with friends than playing a great game? Most my friends are long distance because after high school and through college they moved. I appreciate the opportunity to continue to connect with them every day. Even if I didn't have those friends though I wouldn't be selfish enough to think a game should cater to my needs. Many people put a lot of hard work from the design to the programming and producing even marketing. So many people put their heart and soul into this game and even if you can't appreciate it Ou should have the basic human decency to RESPECT it. (Which apparently judging by the cancerous part you don't seem to have)

This is a wonderful game but if you don't like it MOVE ON AND BUY A DIFFERENT GAME. There is an unbelievably large market for games solo or not. Even then if you are so "old school" go back to your N64 and play that. No one is stopping you.

I'm not a modern person. I still listen to my records daily and whenever I can I try to get my hands on older games I have fond memories of. Let's not get me started with my love for classic cars and the good Ol' days. If I could go back in time I would so if you are going to use the old school arguement on me that won't exactly work out well.

I understand wanting single player in a game but "I wish they had single player content to get to know the characters and story ect." You may have had a pleasant conversation here but you litterally exude miserableness and it's a shame to see that kind of attitude here on DA.

First of all that is pretty rude to the people who spent their time working on all of this. Second I can think of a few multiplayer only games that are pretty underwhelming yes, but I can also think of other games that have pointless arbitrary single player. If a single player or a multiplayer mode is removed from a game to strengthen the part people actually care about, is that really a bad thing? What benefit does Overwatch have from having a single player? the story is already being told through different mediums.

I've been gaming since the Atari. I get that debating on the Internet isn't worth is so ill stop here. Agree to disagree, however the important thing is to not be so insulting to people's work. "Cancerous" is not a work that needs used when referring to someone's art work.

Porn ain't the main problem, that's for sure.

And I'm not talking about PornHub, I'm talking about how Blizzard is trying to delete EVERY bit of porn or Rule 34 that involves Overwatch off the internet. Welcome to the internet, I suppose.

I kind of agree with you on single player part cause I myself am fond of them myself. You know Blizzard studios makes mostly multiplayer games. They are good at it so why not? Overwatch is amazing game for it's genre. Luckly there is lot of amazing single player games coming out soon. I can't wait for new Dishonored myself
