Overwatch - Zenyatta by Limey-Boy Overwatch - Zenyatta by Limey-Boy
Well, that was about the damn quickest I've ever went from being introduced to a new thing to making fanart of it.
12 hours.
New record.

Check out Overwatch, its artistically beautiful and mechanically interesting and fun:

Sure!

Standard common artist licences withstanding (No making money by doing so and such)

I really like this, on multiple levels. I like how you used the line of Zenyatta's face in the center, between the Taoist yin and yang symbol above and what I'm assuming is the Omnic symbol below - his idea of using individual experience to rise above what the past has determined, to something greater, I feel. I love the minimalist emphasis, with mostly black, white, and grays, interrupted by bold red, gold, and cyan. I think that more than just his likeness and his tag line, you captured something deeper about Zenyatta - an idea that salvation does not come from dogmatic law and grandiose statements, but from a simpler soul and an individual's will. My rambling is now over, and I will now favorite this.

Thanks for the critique, very insightful!

The symbol below is sadly not the Omnic symbol, its the Overwatch symbol. If I knew what the Omnic symbol looked like however, I'd totally replace it with it now, or at least do an alternate version.

Thank you for the compliment and the criticism!

1.) The circles within the beads glow, and the beads themselves only seem to actually glow on the outside when activated for one of the mechanical purposes within the game. I suppose in this image they're not being activated with this logic. I've tried an alternate version taking this into account and the picture becomes a little cluttered and dominated by the beads in my opinion.

2.) I was not aware of the whole ripples dealio, and now that I am aware of it, its more of a stylistic choice whether to add it or not. Insofar as I'm aware, Zenyattas overall designs in game & out don't actually incorporate the ripples design at all. and I'm keeping these posters more to the character and what they're comprised of rather than too many outside sources. Still, interesting new knowledge. thanks for sharing!

Yup. I'm really excited, even moreso because it's using the successful TF2 model. Whatever modifications and creative splurging Blizzard can come up with is worth the hype. Its a daring new move, especially given the stigma for other class-based games from the TF2 community.

Also, Bastion.
Absolutely adorable, I think. Even if it is a transforming turret.

Aye! Agreed fully :D

Bastion is adorable, but Zenyattas got my eye. there's something about Monk Robots and Zen balls that just appeals to me instinctively.
