Kids Build Their Own Tiny Worlds of Warcraft

Last year, World of Warcraft developers Blizzard asked university students to "submit an original 3D environment piece fit for World of Warcraft". Basically, a digital diorama of a new WoW setting.

After compiling entries for a few months, Blizzard has now revealed the Grand Prize winners, who each receive one hell of a prize package. Alongside some Blizzard swag and a 12-month WoW subscription, the top three artists you'll see below also scores "a three month mentorship by a member of the World of Warcraft art team, via email or phone critique of portfolio work".

For a kid trying to break into the business, learning from some of the best can be priceless.

To see the larger pics in all their glory (or so you can save them as wallpaper), right-click on them below and select "open in new tab".

Fine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists, showcasing the best of both their professional and personal portfolios. If you're in the business and have some concept, environment or character art you'd like to share, drop us a line!
