For over 20 years, Blizzard Entertainment has pushed the boundaries of contemporary video game design with their immensely popular titles including Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo.
We are thrilled to present to you an exclusive insight into Blizzard's Fine Arts Project; a unique gathering of the world's greatest contemporary fantasy artists creating their own visions of the Blizzard universe. This month, legends including Alex Horely, Todd Lockwood, Alex Ross and Syd Mead share their experiences and showcase the incredible pieces of art produced for the project. The incredible Glenn Rane painted our beautiful cover, featuring a sorceress from the Warcraft universe.
We also have special workshops straight from two of Blizzard's finest artists; Sam Didier collides the worlds of Warcraft and StarCraft together, and Laurel D Austin shares her approach to creating dynamic groups of characters. As if our Blizzard feature wasn't enough to keep you occupied, we've also got a special interview with concept artist Kieran Yanner, along with costume advice from Annie Stegg, Vaughan Ling's guide to creating a cute pet mech, and much more.Digital Editions:
