The Battle Is Over—
The Winners Are In!

Artists battled for the Nexus alongside powerful Blizzard heroes, and now the winners are in!

In the Heroes of the Storm Ultimate Fan Art Contest, we challenged you to show two or more heroes from across the Blizzard universes engaged in battle. With thousands of entries to pick from, the DeviantArt and Blizzard teams had the difficult job of choosing 25 action-packed semi-finalists. From there, it was up to Sam Didier, Senior Art Director for Heroes of the Storm, to pick three winners that truly captured the spirit of his most recent game!

All three winners will receive a framed print of their entry signed by the Heroes of the Storm Creative team, while the 1st place winner will get a framed sketch by Sam Didier himself, inspired by the winning entry. Congratulations, winners, and thank you to everyone who participated!

View the entries below, and read Sam Didier’s comments to learn more about his judging process!


1st Prize winner


TamplierPainter Will Receive:
  • A framed sketch by Sam Didier, Senior Art Director for Heroes of the Storm, inspired by the winning entry
  • A framed print of the 1st place entry signed by the Heroes of the Storm Creative Team
  • $6,000 USD
  • $250 in Battle.net Balance (USD) and a signed boxed copy of Heroes of the Storm
  • 8,000 DeviantArt Points
  • 1-year Premium Membership to DeviantArt.com

Judge's Comments:

“The Lightbringer against the Demon Hunter. The rendering of this piece is unbelievable. It looks like an oil painting done by one of the old masters. The sheer power of the paladin’s attack is balanced beautifully by the elegance of Valla’s riposte. I especially enjoy that the artist chose to create Uther and Valla wearing their Master armor variants. Another point of interest to me is Grimskull Nazeebo lurking in the background with his gargantuan. Although he hails from the Diablo-verse like the Demon Hunter, it is unclear to the me which side he is actually fighting for and, depending on the outcome of this battle, the victor may still have another battle on their hands.”

2nd Prize winner


Kuzinskiy Will Receive:
  • A framed print of the 2nd place entry signed by the Heroes of the Storm Creative Team
  • $3,000 USD
  • $150 Battle.net Balance (USD) and a signed boxed copy of Heroes of the Storm
  • 4,000 DeviantArt Points
  • 6-month Premium Membership to DeviantArt.com

Judge's Comments:

“This piece represents the glorious mayhem that is Heroes of the Storm! Blue verses Red. Warcraft versus StarCraft versus Diablo (literally). This is what the game is all about: all of our heroes and villains locked in a rousing brawl of heroic proportions, and let’s not forget another aspect of the game…smashing the hell out of the innumerable nameless minions! These guys are real heroes as well since no matter how hard our toughest characters massacre them, they keep coming back to the fight!”

3rd Prize winner


Samarskiy Will Receive:
  • A framed print of the 3rd place entry signed by the Heroes of the Storm Creative Team
  • $1,000 USD
  • $100 Battle.net Balance (USD) and a signed boxed copy of Heroes of the Storm
  • 4,000 DeviantArt Points
  • 6-month Premium Membership to DeviantArt.com

Judge's Comments:

“I love this piece for so many reasons. All the heroes chosen for this image are perfect representations of our three worlds, but the real star of this image is the Grave Golem. Grave Golems were specifically created for Heroes of the Storm and are found on the various battlegrounds in our game. To see some of our oldest and most memorable heroes teaming up against one of our newest additions to the Blizzard world really lets me know that we are still creating creatures people are invested in.”






The battle is over, and the winners are in! Sam Didier, Senior Art Director for Heroes of the Storm, went through the 25 action-packed semi-finalists and picked three entries that truly capture the spirit of his game.

Also. Do t say its not worth entering these contests. Trust me. It is. Even if you do not win it get you noticed by professional studios such as blizzard. Getting noticed with your art is so so so important if that is what you are pursuing. Also. Just entering and participating will look great on resumes and applications. It's not always about winning. Be active with your art! :D

All of the work is wonderful and well deserving of the placements and prizes. I don't understand why people are complaining about these artists winning. Instead of complaining about how their art is professional level and how you could never win compared to these use it as motivation. One day you all can be this great too. It takes years of practice. These artist earned their skills with their practice. We all have to pay our dues and do our time working hard to get better. Art is a skill. Not just a talent. Skills require development. Keep drawing artists! One day this will be you :) Congratulations to the winners. Beautiful and inspiring work you all portray here! Well deserve victories :clap:

Umm... really?

First place just looks like a retooled battlefield of eternity promo, with a smaller perspective.

Third place literally looks like one of the in game loading screens with heroes switched around.
