21 Days of Overwatch - Reinhardt by nakanoart 21 Days of Overwatch - Reinhardt by nakanoart
"HAMMER DOWN!"

So, I have been looking forward to the release of Overwatch for quite some time, I had even done some fanart for it already. So when I received a commission from DeviantART for Blizzard as a part of the 21 Days of Overwatch event, I -literally- couldn't believe it! I've been a gamer my whole life and I've never been a part of a release like this before!

Although I haven't had much of a chance to try playing Reinhardt since I've been sick, I've been steadily backing him up as Mercy and he has quickly become one of my favorite characters. He's so over-the-top battle crazed, and I love it! I could recite so many of his quotes xDD I knew this would be a challenge for me, since I draw mostly organic forms, so rendering his mech suit took a lot of focus to complete. Also since Reinhardt is a Germanic character, I wanted to place him in a older European setting that seemed as antiquated as him (haha) to juxtapose his futuristic armor.  

This whole experience has been such a journey, and I feel like I've learned a lot along the way. Thank you to DeviantART for hosting this event, to Blizzard for creating this tremendously fun game, and everyone for your wonderful drawings, support, and most of all just being awesome. I'm just so grateful to be a part of this amazing community!

Also, fellow creators: don't forget to draw your Overwatch fanart and tag it with #21daysofoverwatch! Anyone can be a part of this awesome event too! ^..^

I watched a video about the creation of Overwatch, and apparently Blizzard made the characters this way so that people would become attached to them (and it certainly worked for me, haha)! What would be a nice compromise, is to have a character customization similar to Tekken where you can mix-and-match their outfits to create something completely unique ^..^
Reply
:iconfelixrenegade:
FelixRenegade Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2016
or have in-depth customization of outfits and what kind of ultimate you want like 'Control the earth or control electricity' cause it would look weird with mix matched outfits and having new ultimates created & made for your character is great

I think it's neat to have different looks for the characters weapons and attacks! Some skins actually do change that. As long as they don't change the voice cues for the enemy team, then it won't affect gameplay ^..^

Oh is that the quote? I thought he said "sick in ze morning" haha. Then again, when I play Lucio I keep hearing him cuss, and I know that can't possibly be what he's actually saying, lol!

'Amp it up!'

What I accidently hear: 'F it up!'

nakanoart Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2016
LOL omg now I won't be able to unhear that!

Speaking of Lucio, there's something he says when he attacks or something, and I always mishear it as "ain't that a b*tch" xDD

Quotes I ridiculously mishear:

Reaper (using teleport) - 'Reaper-sitioning'
Reinhardt (using Ultimate) - 'Give her dung!'
Junkrat (picked in Hero Select) 'It's a perfect dye for some my hem'
Mercy (enemy Ultimate) - 'Hey then stab nishk' (different languages sound funny)
McCree (enemy Ultimate) - 'It's hiiiigh nuu~'


Bastion (using Ultimate) - 'Noot Noot Noot, Noot Noot'

Me too! Luckily, they have a helmet-less skin available for only 250 gold. As opposed to 1000 for a legendary ^..^

Extremely impressive work on Reinhardt. His futuristic knightliness is a really cool contrast between themes and time periods. Gives him an almost Optimus prime feel to him.

Thanks! I really love that part about him. It's difficult for me to draw his mechanical suit, but him as a character makes it so worth it ^..^

The best part is that move actually stuns you and makes you stop in your tracks xDD
Reply

Yeah, that's where the "Stop!" comes in. :D That's the most important part.
Somehow, I could barely hit anyone, most of the time, so I usually stuck to shielding teammates and pinning the easy targets.

Well, Dark Souls is a series that takes place over THOUSANDS of years, and we've only seen the same general area (apparently Eastern Europe), so maybe in other countries they developed sci-fi tech, THEN succumbed to the Darksign.
I'm sure someone in the world would basically be Reinhardt.
