I found out that Grubby will be squaring off vs Flash in the first casted match of MLG Dallas – Summer Championship happening tomorrow! The Warcraft 3 legend and Starcraft 2 titan squaring off inspired me to sketch up a little cheerful for them. I’m cheering for Grubby, of course but I wish the best of luck to both players. Somewhat selfishly I hope that it will be one of the most devastating spectacles of Terran mechanized battle bombardment thundering against the devote zen psi-shielding of the focused Protoss as they lighten the field with their searing storms.
CHEER FOR GRUBBY AT MLG!

The Elite Grubby Guard took a lot of perseverance, but after loosing the master file two times, and recovering from compressed demo images, I was able to finally complete a working version. This is an overlay image for the ‘out of game’ segments I created for twitch.tv streamer Grubby.
Flash is one of the most dominating Starcraft pro-gamers ever to grasp the mouse. The inspiration of this image came from his amazing control over the Terran army. In my imagination the man simply did away with the adjacent and plugged himself directly into the Terran command framework at it’s core level. There will be no getting past the Last Generation Terran.
I would love to spend more time fixing the background and creating more contrast in this image. I would also like to work on increasing the player likeness. I think the color theory was fun, but once again could be revisited to maximize reflections and cast shadows.
