This is my entry to the Heroes of the Storm fan art contest!

It's a Sculpture of Anub'Arak fighting Nova Terra, it is made out of NSP Hard, Stands 32 cm tall and weights about 4 kg. The base was made using Airdrying clay some details were made with iron wire and wings were made out of steel wire mesh. If you have any questions hit me!

You can watch me sculpt live here:

And here are the videos of me working on this statue:…

I know it's been a while but still... Any plans on casting it?
Or sell original?

Hey man you Anub'arak is very impressive. Do you make resin version for who want to buy it?

RESPECT! I could hardly finish one 1/6 sculpture in months and you made a masterpiece in a very short time! Great job!

Why did I not see this before? This is sick! You took the same match-up I choose and made it really come to life! They absolutely HAVE to acknowledge this one way or another.

There could be a hundred sculptures in the contest and I don't think it would matter, this takes the cake. You should really be proud of this piece.

Glad you like it ;) thanks. Pity its soo expensive to sculpt and more time consuming if i had the time & money I would have molded, casted and painted it for the contest. I ve spent 70+ h on this :D

If this is the kind of thing you enjoy, I would say go ahead and polish it up, mold and cast a resin (or whatever) one and paint it, send it in to Blizzard. I'm sure they'll find a place for it, and it's better than any paper resume because it will always be visible.

I would but the cost is just riddiculus ;D to mold&cast it would cost about 400$ :D I just dont have that kind of money to spare :D
