Day 1 of 21

Mercy

:iconalexnegrea:
Illustrated byalexnegrea

“I was happy to paint Mercy because I really like the vibe of the character. The painting process was a challenging one but definitely a great experience!”

Day 2 of 21

Genji

:icontsaoshin:
Illustrated byTsaoShin

“Genji’s stealthy combat moves, sleek design, and fusion between man and machine offers so much in the way of inspiration.  Ultimately, I chose a composition that would put him into a menacing stance paired with threatening glow of the giant dragon summoned during his Dragonblade ability.”

Day 3 of 21

Hanzo

:iconlarienne:
Illustrated bylarienne

“I fell in love with Hanzo the moment I saw him! His wonderful design, heartbreaking backstory and badass weapon turned drawing him into a true, one of a kind adventure!”

Day 4 of 21

Symmetra

:iconkate-fox:
Illustrated byKate-FoX

“Symmetra is an interesting, attractive character with a unique design and drawing her was a fascinating experience. I’ve always liked such characters, that’s why it was a pleasure to fulfill this commision.”

Day 5 of 21

Reaper

:iconrossdraws:
Illustrated byrossdraws

“Illustrating Reaper was an enjoyable experience for me. His essence really came through his design which helped me create this piece for him.”

Day 6 of 21

Pharah

:iconknkl:
Illustrated byKNKL

“Pharah’s stylish hair and mech suit are my favorite things about her. It was challenging drawing her from this angle, but the feeling of looking up at her while taking in the details of her character made it all worth it!”

Day 7 of 21

Roadhog

:iconthechamba:
Illustrated bytheCHAMBA

“I always find it extremely fun to draw the characters that are somewhat outside the norm for me. I’m used to drawing super physically fit characters, so the overall design and anatomy of Roadhog looked wickedly fun for me. A welcomed change of pace!”

Day 8 of 21

Widowmaker

:iconry-spirit:
Illustrated byRy-Spirit

“Drawing Widowmaker was a joy, she’s beautiful and stylish but also evil. It was definitely fun drawing her even though my greatest fear is spiders.”

Day 9 of 21

McCree

:icongenzoman:
Illustrated byGENZOMAN

“I love everything related to the old west! It is always great to find a character like the gunslinger Jesse McCree, an anachronic classical western outlaw in the ScFi themed game of Overwatch. Not only because he has a lot of personality, but also he offers a nice contrast between technology and the classic western icons.  I had a really nice time painting this piece, playing with the concept of a character that can be very good at aiming, but also to show he is good to evade and run.”

Day 10 of 21

Tracer

:icondanluvisiart:
Illustrated byDanLuVisiArt

“I grew up on Blizzard games as a young teen, being a big fan of Diablo 1-3. Now being able to paint one of their characters for their latest game, Overwatch is now a personal notch I can check off. Thank you for this awesome opportunity.”

Day 11 of 21

Zenyatta

:iconchasingartwork:
Illustrated byChasingArtwork

“When drawing this character, I had a ton of fun playing with the idea that this is a spiritual robot with a faith, I had wanted to create an image that makes people think "ethereal", a robotic god of sorts. He should look like he’s at one with the universe. Or at least trying for it.  It’s a very different character type, “Robotic Monk” is a unique descriptor. Very fun to draw.”

Day 12 of 21

Winston

:iconpicolo-kun:
Illustrated byPicolo-kun

“When I was drawing Winston I wanted to bring to life this animal nature that makes him unique. Thus I chose to illustrate his "Primal Rage" mode with loads of brutal force and primal energy.”

Day 13 of 21

D.Va

:iconguweiz:
Illustrated byGUWEIZ

“D.Va was a fun but challenging character to draw! The bright color palette and energy are her strongest selling points for me and I tried my best to create a piece that would show that off!”

Day 14 of 21

Lucio

:iconraichiyo33:
Illustrated byRaichiyo33

“I immediately thought of extreme sports like snowboarding or rollerblading. The sports and the athletes movements really helped me with figuring out the pose for him along with other inspirational characters from past early 2000’s games, which I was really fond of when I was young. He has surprisingly a lot of detail which proved difficult drawing them in angle. Anyways, he was fun to draw!”

Day 15 of 21

Junkrat

:iconcharlie-bowater:
Illustrated byCharlie-Bowater

“I had a lot of fun painting him in a more illustrative style and it was a nice change of pace for me.”

Day 16 of 21

Mei

:iconclaparo-sans:
Illustrated byClaparo-Sans

“My first impression of Mei was that of an adorable sister that you’d feel comfortable hanging out with. Everything about Mei can be described as cuteness, I really enjoyed painting her chubby cheeks, fluffy coat. My favorite detail is how she holds her pinky finger up when holding a gun, which is such a feminine detail about her. Drawing the weapon was quite a challenge, but fortunately I was able to paint it in my favorite color (blue). All in all it turned out to be a great experience.”

Day 17 of 21

Soldier 76

:iconeinlee:
Illustrated byeinlee

“I was really drawn by his back story, one of such loss and disillusionment. Instead of his usual guns-blazing badass look, I tried to capture the more human side of him that urges him to carry on despite his weariness, bound by duty. Here he is during a moment of repose after a long day.”

Day 18 of 21

Reinhardt

:iconnakanoart:
Illustrated bynakanoart

“As an avid gamer, I was already anticipating the release of Overwatch. So when I was presented with the opportunity to draw Reinhardt, a character who I was itching to play, I jumped at the chance! I’ve already played many tank-type characters, so I chose to portray him in a way that highlights his role: battle-worn and bravely leading the charge for his team”

Day 19 of 21

Zarya

:iconserafleur:
Illustrated byserafleur

“It was an enthralling but challenging experience for me to be able to draw that wasn’t what I usually draw. At first, I was overwhelmed by her strong personality and her complex design but the longer I paint Zarya, the more her design becomes interesting and fun. I learned so much throughout the process of painting Zarya that broaden my knowledge to character designing so I think it was meant that she was my chosen character.”

Day 20 of 21

Bastion

:iconayyasap:
Illustrated byAyyaSAP

“Bastion—It’s a very unusual character with interesting story. In my illustration I would like to show Bastion as himself—kind, loving nature and all living things, but still able to stand up for himself and for those he loves. In that episode he saves cute rabbits from danger and he had to use force.”

Day 21 of 21

Torbjorn

:iconscebiqu:
Illustrated byScebiqu

“Torbjörn is a more defensive weaponsmith character building up lines of turrets to aid his team. But he’s also a badass looking space dwarf with robotic claw and a flame-spewing forge on his back. I thought portraying him in the midst of a raging battle, manning the barricades would fit his character well and I really had fun doing that.”

Possibly, though I doubt Blizzard wants it to compete with WoW or D3. :shrug:

True. Personally I think the game stands on its own two feet very well.

I've followed it along since - but haven't tested in Alpha or Beta. As soon as I found out it was a MOBA, I got sad.

Overwatch is not a MOBA. It's a FPS through and through. The closest game to it is Team Fortress 2

Well, that's fair. Either way - it's not at all what I was hoping for. Although I REALLY love the art style, the premise, and even how it looks. And it's Blizzard. Blizzard isn't perfect.. But they've got a great reputation for quality hitters. Still... I like a game that I can solo on and prefer to not mess around with too much PvP. Brings out the complete moron in me as my temper can get the best of me when I know it's a player not the AI or whatever - that's bringin' me down. LOL..

That's very true. They do have the ability to group up with friends, and they have a mode where you team up with people and fight against AI--but it's not fully fleshed. I'm hopeful that some sort of Mann vs. Machine style mode may come out a few years down the road. For now, if PvP isn't your thing, stay away. Maybe wait for it to go on sale if it's only the sort of game you can dabble in.
