W I P  - Enhanced HEAVENCRY by IosifChezan
W I P - Enhanced HEAVENCRY
[Work-in-progress...  Many thanks to the talented dnavenom for his precious advices]

This is an escaped longing of my soul for deep altruistic heroism. . . I will quote from my old Heavencry description, even if now i see more then before how much subjective is my view (well, after reading Earnest Becker - The Denial of Death- a must to anyone eager for larger panorama of understanding human existence):
"Beyond the evilness which should spread fear around, it hides the feeling i wanted to ensnare inside: a dark Messiah/prophet/Daemon/Demiurge/spawn of Hell or Heaven, no matter what, or anyone of those, who come to change for real the face of mankind, to purge it, to raise it to its true values of beauty, kindness, compassion/altruism, values which in our real world don't have a real value, because the human race still is in its primal phase, so close related to a blind nature's laws (like the strongest "kill" the weakest, blindly living and breeding in a egoistic world of profit; in a world where beautiful minds are allowed to live and act only in the name of profit. . . A Messiah who would turn the destiny of thousand years ahead more closely of this beautiful "accident" of an unconsciousness Universe (the "accident of awareness of your self living" ).

I mean the mankind is not spinning very graciously the way it does today :) (Smile) and more sad then that, almost impossible to change or even only "scratch" a thing by yourself;  so here He comes to change things. And what is the value whom all obey for sure in every known existence? Power spreading fear of Death, a Tyrant, a Holy Dark Tyrant, but so noble in its purpose, so altruistic to humankind. "
Worm-Emperor of EGOISM by IosifChezan
Worm-Emperor of EGOISM
This is one character of my WIP fantasy short-story "Tale of Butterflies and Worms". A ruler of the world, sheltering  the Worm of Egoism inside his heart. He commands generals as Tyranny, Greed and Deceiving, each with specific personified servants, in order to enslave and rule those weaker. He is holding the Bow of Infamy with snake-head arrows of ingratitude.

Maybe I will add a bit more description later.
A glimpse of HOTS Epic Universe by IosifChezan
A glimpse of HOTS Epic Universe
Here is my try to mirror a glimpse of what Blizzard shared with us all... all those in thirst for magic universes with inspiring colors, surprising design and dynamics, eager to experience unmatched gameplay inside thrilling epic adventures.  What more cozy place to feed the call of the Hero inside of us rather then a Blizzard Universe? 

I planned this as  an iconic pyramidal composition with 3 representative characters from 3 different Blizz universes - Diablo, Zerathul and Illidan.

I painted it with such a passion in all my spare time of the month (days or nights, even without sleep in the last night); nevertheless I finished it only one hour before the contest was about to be closed. On such theme it is impossible to stop and say "i'm satisfied, there is nothing i could imagine, add or enhance" :)

ps. The characters whom i play most inside Heroes of The Storm are Illidan and Zerathul :)
*Awesome artworks in this contest! Good luck to everyone!

update: Oh, I got into semi-finals! Heroes of the Storm Contest Semi-Finalists
It feels beyond words! It was an honor to participate aside so many great entries, and it is an honor to be near such talented artists in the first 25 selected!
I bring you... the embrace of FEAR (smaller res) by IosifChezan
I bring you... the embrace of FEAR (smaller res)
My warlock entry  for Outcast Odyssey Card Master Challenge - smaller resolution, clearer view, re-balanced.

[the high resolution images could lose details/clarity when are displayed smaller on Da gallery, so i added a smaller resolution and clearer view in my eyes. Also a smooth re-balance of contrasts / focus was done ]

Here is the original entry for the contest: I bring you... the embrace of FEAR

Tyrant undying mind...

...  in the end of human experiences of such large palette, a soft bitter " :) " ... and a river of untold words...  and a tyrant thought climbing its meaning inside skull walls :
"... I will revive you, so few dear and majestic life forms of human accident... i will fill you with living meaning again into my own heaven... somewhere, some day, some way..."

I'm so happy to have found your amazing gallery.  So very much of your work has moved and inspired me.
Not being a deeply religious person. I still have to admire your view of the glory of Christ, and look forward to seeing more of these fine iconic images.
