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.

Great work! I love Kerrigan but I haven't played the other games so I don't know the other characters. But it's a great drawing nonetheless!

Great shot! I can see you put a lot of effort into it, and it ended up great! :D (Big Grin) Who do you think it's going to win? They all seem sure of themselves.

:D (Big Grin) Yup, I guess he could, he's not targeted by anyone, like Tyrael and that rogue blood elf. My fav is Arthas though. =P (Razz)

Nice art.
A fun idea thet heroes of the storm is,
but i guess they have to equalize dmg from DPU minigun shells and arrows, which is somewhat rediculous.
