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.
