Blizzard Entertainment World of Warcraft Art Blast—Dungeon Environment Art

World of Warcraft: Dungeon Environment team

We’re very proud to have just released our latest expansion, World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth.  The conflict between the Horde and Alliance has been brewing for a long time now, and with the release of this content we see the story of our beloved factions hit an all-time high.  As always, the World of Warcraft art team wanted to ensure that the visuals we created for this expansion matched the epic storytelling that went into crafting this experience.  And while we hope you can see that attention crammed into every corner of the two new continents we’ve created, we don’t often get to show off this work at its original resolution. This game is the product of a whole team of insanely talented craftspeople and we’re excited to draw attention to the individual Artists who pour themselves into this work.  Partnering with ArtStation has given us the incredible opportunity to accomplish both of those goals.

Over the course of this week we will be showcasing work from each art discipline.  Please look for artwork released on the following dates:

Mon (9/10) – Dungeon Environment Art

Tues (9/11) – Character Art

Weds (9/12) – FX and Animation

Thurs (9/13) – Prop Art and Level Design

Fri (9/14) – Visual Development/Concept Art and World Environment Art

The Artists and Designers put a lot of their talent, attention to detail, and creativity into Battle for Azeroth. We hope you enjoy the work!

World of Warcraft Student Art Contest

The World of Warcraft Student Art Contest was created to give students who are excited about creating stylized, hand-painted game art an outlet. It has helped many Artists start their careers here on the Warcraft team at Blizzard and across the games industry.

We wanted to create something as an overview of the contest and the impact it has had and can have on student artists. The contest runs throughout the fall. For more information go to www.blizzard.com/students.

Enjoy the video and we look forward to seeing your entry in the contest.
