Blizzcon wasn't only about Blizzard games. It was also about Blizzard fans. There were contests, such as the amazing costume competition. But they weren't the only fan creations that dazzled.

The Blizzcon 2011 Fan Art Contest celebrated the stunning illustrations and paintings Blizzard fans drew, inked, and sketched, whether that be with pencils or tablets.
