Community Spotlight: Lich King by Jorcerca
Community Spotlight
April 10th by Kaivax

For this week’s Community Spotlight, we recently came across an outstanding piece of fan art, and reached out to learn more about it and the artist, Jorcerca.

Q: What would you say was the impetus for this piece?
A: Most importantly, the design of World of Warcraft. WoW is one of the most awesome, innovative and creative games in the world.

Q: How long does a work like this take you to complete?
A: I usually allow one week to make an illustration like this one. I don’t spend the whole week on it, but it actually takes a total of five to seven hours.

Q: From where do you take your inspiration?
A: I was inspired by several works, and I like to make concept art for games. I look a lot at Blizzard art for Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft, and I also like a lot of the art and design in other games, and particularly console games. Additionally, I have a list of several artists that I follow, and their works inspire me to create.

Q: What’s your gameplay history?
A: Warcraft… well, actually I think a little of everything. I started out playing Warcraft II, and then I played Warcraft III, and then I entered the World of Warcraft and it was love at first sight!

Q: What would you add to WoW, if you could?
A: This question is so difficult! I think I’d want add something that could go on to be a new race of characters. I think it would be very cool if they were a race of aquatic characters … but that’s all I’ve got so far on the concept!
