Evolved Kobold - Hearthstone: Whispers of the Old Gods


In-game card!
I'm SUPER excited that ‪‎Blizzard‬ just officially released the “Evolved Kobold” card that I worked on for the newly releasedHearthstone‬ expansion, “Whispers of the ‪Old Gods” which you can play now!!
I did the concepts, design and final linework/shading, while the beautiful colors were done by the talented Nutchapol Thitinunthakorn! I LOVE the rich colors, textures and lighting he brought in, and that he managed to keep so closely to the design while translating the lines into sculpted, dimensional forms. He really made this piece sing (and 100x better XD)! Check out more of Nutchapol’s work here: https://www.artstation.com/artist/silentstorm

I was really fond of the first concept with the gobbo and the pickaxe-infused arm-–so glad the Art Director, Jeremy Cranfordand the team decided to move forward with that one!
In one concept I thought of miners and how they carried caged canaries, so I thought it might be neat to have the Kobold carry a skeletal canary.
Working with Jeremy was wonderful, and his direction to flip the composition, remove the goblin and incorporate the candle back into the horn (as per my other concept), strengthened and clarified my design.


This was pretty neat! I was SO surprised to find a huge mural of the artwork above 53 3rd Street in San Francisco!! :D
