Now, Blizzard has posted a new small collection of fanart up at their gallery. If you’ve been following my blog over the years, you’ll know the track record of fan art is almost as bad as the official art.
The above is, in my opinion, one of the better pieces. This is not to say that there are not problems with this selection, but the women featured look much more like adventurers than decoration. They look like they’re there to do a job, and are getting on with it regardless of their chances of success. I am kind of wincing at the mage who is about to get ganked in one of the pics.
I feel like this is a positive step forward, despite the midriff, the heels and the boobtacular moments marring a couple of these pieces. After all – there are women with large boobs (although as a big-boobed woman I probably wouldn’t chose to wear Priest T6 if it includes those golden ‘spirals’ on it.) Hopefully Blizzard will err on this side of the line when it comes to future picks, although I sincerely doubt it.
One piece of advice – I’d avoid the comments.
