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!
