Artanis old school style by powerhouse-bg Artanis old school style by powerhouse-bg
Here's a reimagining of Artanis. I tried to make him look more Brood War-like. Used pencils and a pen for the initial sketch, then colored him and added detail in SAI and PS.

As much as I do not like the first StarCraft's designs (like... any of them), this is pretty fucking epic! :D I would have settled happily for such a style in the games. :)

Thanks! To be honest, I would love it if they didn't change the style between the games so much, but rather only built upon it. SC1 stuff looks more massive and war-like to me.

That's true. Although I think we can agree that the Terran designs remained pretty much the same, and the zerg... well, they turned even more disgusting and therefore terrifying in my eyes.
I think what I best admire in the "new" protoss is perhaps the fact that they kick ass and be all war-like while being "faaaaaaabulous" in their designs. :D I don't know it, really appeals to me. :XD: The old protoss structures and vehicles reminded me more of Lego block buildings and crude toys, than actual works of art and purpose.

I can understand, yes. For me, I've grown up with SC1 and the things there are a bit *too* canon for me. :D SC2 is different and awesome in its own way, but it's lost a bit of grittiness, maybe. However, if you think about it, it represents a newer era and thus everything is less "savage" - it's like SC1 takes place during WWII, and SC2 is in the modern era.
