Heroes of the Storm by Omar-Atef Heroes of the Storm by Omar-Atef
FINALLY!! This piece took me 4 months from start to finish, obviously I didn't work on it everyday, I took a lot of breaks when I got to a point where I hit a wall while painting so I studied what I needed to go on, total time spent actually painting would be around 100-120 hours! Yeah I know.. Well the reason I chose to spend so much in a single piece is simply because this is very special to me, for some Heroes of the Storm is just another upcoming game by Blizzard with some hype around it, well for me it stands for something more, some of these characters and the artists behind them resemble the main reason why I chose to become an artist and thereby my career. Some parts aren't finished yet but I'll probably leave it as it is because it's been one hell of a tough ride, The color palette is heavily inspired by my idol, Wei Wang's Battlecry Mosaic (My favorite piece of all time) I've learned A LOT while doing this piece so I'm glad I committed to finishing it. I'll be taking a break for a while and focus on oil painting. 

You're welcome to use/share this piece as long as you refer me in the credits or link this page.

Edit: 4-1-18, Retouched the overall colors a bit, along with a couple of faces.

the only good thing here is Thrall, the only one to save but even the perspective of his hammer is to doubt

I know its not your fault, but...

/heavy sigh at Kerrigan not having any internal organs and both she and Valeera having their ass and boobs out.

At least Illidan has his boobs out too to balance things a bit!

I think it's a good piece of art, overall :)

Well! Valeera is kinda understandable since she's a femme fatale kinda character, as for Kerrigan, can't really say much! hahaha!

That would be Valeera Sanguinar from the WoW comic, she's also the Rogue hero in Hearthstone.

My only complaint with the idea is that this mean we wont be seeing Ogrim Doomhammer as a playable character (their models would look to similar, wearing the same armor and all).

I think it's too early to say! We'll have to wait and see how his final model looks in the next expansion, I think they'll be playing on the nostalgia so we might see'm! ^^

I'm hoping we will, along with a host of other characters (Grom, Zul'jin, Gho'gal, Gul'Dan, Tyrion, Lothar, Turalyon, and more! SO MANY MORE!!!)

Agreed! Hope they add some War of the Ancients characters as well! But I think they'll run out of new hero ideas before they reach those considering the have 3 major franchises to cover.
