Wrath by Novanim Wrath by Novanim
My entry for the The Heroes of the Storm™ Ultimate Fan Art Contest. I spent many, many hours doing this piece, and I could have spent even more, but it's time for me to let it go . Making this piece was a really good experience, since I learned so much about my own process, my strenghts, and my weakneses.
Since 2009, I always wanted to draw Arthas again in an illustration, so I decided to put him against another wrathful Blizzard character, Imperius.

Check the step by step here novanim.deviantart.com/art/Hot…

Hugs for all

UPDATE: SELECTED AS ONE OF THE 25 SEMI-FINALISTS FOR THE CONTEST!! :happybounce:  Link

I love this. :) Imperius looks so Awesome, but honestly I think the Lich King would win.

Thank you for your kind words. The Lich King has endless armies, so yeah he would probably win.

Battle of the angry armor suits.
I saw this on FB awhile back and I've been thinking about it ever since, I think it's probably my favorite HotS fanart out there! The colors and the detail are absolutely beautiful! :heart:

This is my favourite! I love the contrast between the light and dark (or the blue and yellow), love the detail in the armour and the light affects.

Good luck :D

This is very nice, especially the orange monochrome. Could you explain how you made it, as far as the various steps? I'm a beginner artist. Thanks.

First, you can check this novanim.deviantart.com/art/Hot…

As you can see, after the initial lineart, I defined all the volumes, lights and shadows with a grayscale. Afterwards, I used a "Gradient Map" with warm tones (yellow, orange, red) in color mode above all the initial layers. All this using Photoshop.

because Arthas IS the leech king. he has a whole story arch going back to the first games that lead him into a corrupted path to become the leech king.

Perhaps so, but I liked the way you used strong colours. Perhaps, you are your worst critique.  Don't worry, you should be in the top 25.

Amazing artwork. I think you should make a point of view from the angel next. Looking down at the demon.

If they not angel and demon. I am sorry.
