Epic StarCraft 2 Fan Art

by

StarCraft is one of my all time favorite video game franchises. I started playing back in high school - way back in 1998. I continued to play it off and on throughout college but eventually stopped when it seemed as if Blizzard would never release a sequel. Fast forward about 12 years and today, StarCraft 2 is a thriving e-sport with people like HuskyStarCraft and Day9 pushing the game on their YouTube pages. Since I am such a huge fan of the game, I decided to showcase some of my favorite pieces of StarCraft fan art for all of you to enjoy. Most of these pieces were found on the Blizzard website although some of them can also be found on Deviant Art. Let's take a look!


All-In by TheChaoticKnight

The piece by The Chaotic Knight on Deviant Art portrays the final battle between the forces of StarCraft hero Jim Raynor and villain The Queen of Blades in StarCraft 2: Wings of Victory. As you can see, a massive battle looms overhead that include Battlecruisers and Zerg forces.


Queen of Blades by Marek Okon (OmeN2501)

This piece by Marek Okon portrays StarCraft villain, The Queen of Blades. Once a Terran Ghost named Sarah Kerrigan, the Queen of Blades is now one of the most feared individuals in the StarCraft Universe.


Glare by Brian Cosmiano (HoodZ)

This piece by Brian Cosmiano portrays a Terran marine as he takes cover in a trench.


Raynor

This piece shows Jim Raynor during a battle as the world around him burns.


Zealot by Yi Yoon-Gi (Tazzi)

The Zealot of the most basic battlefield unit in the Protoss arsenal. This piece by Yi Yoon-Gi shows how rugged and deadly they can be.


Marines on Char - Matthew McKeown

Char is a resource rich planet that was eventually settled by the Zerg. This piece by Matthew McKeown shows just how inhabitable this planet can be, even without the Zerg.


Adjutant by Kaynine

Adjutants are a form of artificial intelligence that provide players with key information about an objective or mission. This piece by Kaynine shows a side of them that most of us probably didn't expect.


I Love The Smell by Magnus Fallgren

This piece by Magnus Fallgren portrays a marine taking in the sights and smells of battle.


Be Still by Magnus Fallgren

In StarCraft, sometimes it's best to wait until the perfect time to strike. This piece by Magnus Fallgren shows a marine keeping his cool while a hydralisk passes by.


Stay Away From Me by Magnus Fallgren

In yet another piece by Magnus Fallgren, a Ghost takes a knee during a rain shower.


Bugs by Bin Zhang

You Dropped Something by Daniel H Chang

Starcraft Painting by Neocromagnum

This painting by Neocromagnum shows a marine who may be in a bit of trouble.


Killing Fields by Nathan Boyd

These Zerg Overlords may need to spread out a bit so those missles don't take them all out.


Revenge Class Battlecruiser by Branislav Bogdanovic

This piece shows a fleet of battlecruisers emerging from a blue planet.


Reaper by Matthew McKeown

Reapers are new units in StarCraft 2. Their rocket packs make them excellent units to use to scout out your opponent's base.


Hydralisk by HaifengLuo

This hydralisk can see the whole battlefield from the top of a cliff.


StarCraft by Christopher Pigden

This marine is wreaking havok with his dual wielding machine guns.
