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!
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.

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.
