Overwatch has developed quite a fan art following....

So two years ago, we had a pretty neat thread based on all the awesome Splatoon art that started to pop up all over. Overwatch seems to have similarly taken off...we're like just a week away from release and the internet is practically littered with the stuff!

Show me your favorites (preferably with a link to the source) or show me what you've made!

EDIT: Since LiK, pointed it out, let's try to keep the most NSFW stuff out of here :p

Yup, most of the fanart I've come across has been nsfw SFM stuff -_- I'm looking forward to seeing the cool artwork here though.

I can't believe this, SFW fanarts.

The SFM community is miles ahead btw...

EDIT: it has recently come to my attention that this games has more than 5 (female) characters and some are male. Can you believe it..

The OT fanart is pretty amazing. But 99% of the stuff that gets thrown around in OW threads (and even threads that have nothing to do with OW) puts the overwatch fan base in the running for "creepiest fanbase of the decade" category.

I don't think I've ever seen a fanbase revolve around this stuff so fast. It's like Sonic fans + tumblr + twitch chat + my little pony + a 13 year old girl's notebook had a baby.

Hah! I was expecting another thing when I clicked here, but I'm pleasantly surprised. That Casual Tracer is going to be my phone wallpaper, pretty cool.

Years of Internet surfing have given me an instinctual negative reaction to this expression. Cringey as fuck.
Lmao, I'm not a fan either, but given how what pops up in other Overwatch threads, that's kind of what I expect this thread to tilt towards.

I made the thread because I'd like to actually see some fan-art of the dudes or dudes with girls rather than just girls and girls with girls. It seems hard to find :p

I can't *believe* these lazy developers keep making file sizes so damn large. Btw, how does technology work?

It sometimes boggles my mind how many incredibly talented artists are out there that don't even make any money pursuing this hobby. Character art must be a damn near impossible field to break into.

That's when you ask money for commissions. There are many people out there who really appreciate art, so they ask an artist to draw a really artistic image featuring their favorite characters doing artistic things. Makes pretty good money I've heard.

I'm not saying you shouldn't post art of males, but I'd appreciate it if you could put them in spoiler boxes or something.

Aside from the fanart done just because they enjoy the subject matter, fanart of established properties is one of the best ways to build visibility, recognition and a persistent following - and if they're running a patreon or something to monetise their work, that's essential.

If I didn't have to go to work right now I'd light this place up with yuri fanart. Curses.

You guys are behind the times. We already had that Overwatch porn thread last week.

Oh...they finally got around to the SFW stuff I see. Uhh...good job. Keep up the good work and all.

Amazing art direction and character design would do that. I don't even like FPS but I feel drawn to this game for those very qualities.

Whats with the wording of these threads when have people never not made fanart of anything? And why are you so surprise by it.
