WoW Shadowlands concept artwork by character artists Pingston & McKeown

World of Warcraft has been around for a few years now, and the transformation of the game design over the years hasn't always been to every player's taste.

While in the foreground additions such as new talent trees, the LFR tool or a new Legendary Item drama are causing a stir, in the background the art design team is at work - making sure that each expansion is a true work of art on an aesthetic level.

Today we would like to take you into the wide world of WoW art and show you some concept drawings by the two (senior) character artists Dan Pingston and Matthew McKeown. This is a small selection of artwork for the current Shadowlands WoW expansion. Enjoy! (Source: WoWHead)

Weapons and armor

The areas of the new WoW expansion are bursting with unique aesthetics - and the armor as well as weapons seem to reflect that.
