21 Days of Overwatch - Reinhardt

By nakanoart
3K Favourites

So, I have been looking forward to the release of Overwatch for quite some time, I had even done some fanart for it already. So when I received a commission from DeviantART for Blizzard as a part of the 21 Days of Overwatch event, I -literally- couldn't believe it! I've been a gamer my whole life and I've never been a part of a release like this before!

Although I haven't had much of a chance to try playing Reinhardt since I've been sick, I've been steadily backing him up as Mercy and he has quickly become one of my favorite characters. He's so over-the-top battle crazed, and I love it! I could recite so many of his quotes xDD I knew this would be a challenge for me, since I draw mostly organic forms, so rendering his mech suit took a lot of focus to complete. Also since Reinhardt is a Germanic character, I wanted to place him in a older European setting that seemed as antiquated as him (haha) to juxtapose his futuristic armor.  

This whole experience has been such a journey, and I feel like I've learned a lot along the way. Thank you to DeviantART for hosting this event, to Blizzard for creating this tremendously fun game, and everyone for your wonderful drawings, support, and most of all just being awesome. I'm just so grateful to be a part of this amazing community!

Also, fellow creators: don't forget to draw your Overwatch fanart and tag it with #21daysofoverwatch! Anyone can be a part of this awesome event too! ^..^

I’d rather get squished by a Goron than trying to get away from this hammer. It’s monsterous.

This guy just blatantly stole your art; slapped his name under your signature as if nothing Llama Emoji-66 (Angry) [V3] 
nakanoart's avatar
Gee that's a pretty big signature, I wonder if it's HIDING SOMETHING

Thanks for letting me know! I'll make sure to report it ^..^

If there was an option to create your hero, I would instantly buy the game

I watched a video about the creation of Overwatch, and apparently Blizzard made the characters this way so that people would become attached to them (and it certainly worked for me, haha)! What would be a nice compromise, is to have a character customization similar to Tekken where you can mix-and-match their outfits to create something completely unique ^..^
FelixRenegade's avatar
or have in-depth customization of outfits and what kind of ultimate you want like 'Control the earth or control electricity' cause it would look weird with mix matched outfits and having new ultimates created & made for your character is great

I think it's neat to have different looks for the characters weapons and attacks! Some skins actually do change that. As long as they don't change the voice cues for the enemy team, then it won't affect gameplay ^..^

i'd honestly LOVE to get this as a print!! the colours are just so nice jesus this is such a pretty piece ;w;
nakanoart's avatar
Aww thank you so much. I'm sorry to say that I cannot offer this as a print, since the image itself belongs to blizzard ^..^; I do have a Society6 store with my original work, though!

'I feel Sad in ze mornings'
nakanoart's avatar
Oh is that the quote? I thought he said "sick in ze morning" haha. Then again, when I play Lucio I keep hearing him cuss, and I know that can't possibly be what he's actually saying, lol!
shockaLocKer's avatar
'Amp it up!'

What I accidently hear: 'F it up!'
nakanoart's avatar
LOL omg now I won't be able to unhear that!

Speaking of Lucio, there's something he says when he attacks or something, and I always mishear it as "ain't that a b*tch" xDD
shockaLocKer's avatar
Quotes I ridiculously mishear:

Reaper (using teleport) - 'Reaper-sitioning'
Reinhardt (using Ultimate) - 'Give her dung!'
Junkrat (picked in Hero Select) 'It's a perfect dye for some my hem'
Mercy (enemy Ultimate) - 'Hey then stab nishk' (different languages sound funny)
McCree (enemy Ultimate) - 'It's hiiiigh nuu~'

Bastion (using Ultimate) - 'Noot Noot Noot, Noot Noot'
