    Who drew the new loading screen characters?

    Look at Varian's eyes and Sylvannas' face.

    Her face.

    Look at her face.

    Oh god Varian's proportions.

    His wrists are bigger than his entire head.

    It's about watching a company gleefully flinging away its goodwill with both hands and engaging in a pissing contest with its customers. It's about coyness, and a lack of straightforwardness. It's about rude, flip responses to valid questions, using third-party media instead of an official site. It's about a loss of trust, and the perception of untruthfulness. It's about an attitude that has begun to border on complacency and deceitfulness. -Roycroft the Human Rogue (Paraphrased)

    They look quite strange.

    While it's cool to see them update overall....

    Sylvanna's looks like she got lip injections to make them larger.

    Why did they even update that one anyway? It's been Cataclysm since...Cataclysm, and they didn't update it with MoP o.O

    Also, it's hard to tell if she's falling after jumping off a ledge, waving her hands in the air like she just don't care, or just pulling another arrow out to use for her bow that she's for some reason aiming way to the side.

    Everyone else is fine in my opinion, although maybe tweak Varian's eyes a bit

    Also...lol Velen's exactly the same in the new Kalimdor one...And Tyrande just got a mirror flip.

    They're images taken from the comics/graphic novels, rather than traditional artwork.

    While I agree they look too fan-arty for the loading screens (and Thrall should have
    his WoD model,) here's the art for Sylvanas:

    From the short story, Edge of Night. http://wowpedia.org/Edge_of_Night

    Varian I'm not sure yet. Betting a similar source.

    EDIT: Yup, short story...

    Saw Varian, first thing in my head:
    I'm mean because you're stupid.

    I remember seeing these loading screens back when MoP was in beta.. honestly those loading screens look really familiar except for the one with thrall.

    I really hope they change this, otherwise I'm gonna die of laughter everytime I load in and look at Sylvanas.
    Hey, remember when I dropped my keys and you thought the phone was ringing?

    Just replace Sylvanas' and Varian's images with the ones they already had on the maps.
    There, problem solved!

    Honestly don't know why they changed those, they looked proper.

    They really don't look good ... Varian's head looks comically tiny, and Sylvanas looks like Jessica Rabbit ...

    I really like the "old" Sylvanas on the EK loading screen, she looks really good there. Why change it?

    Have you looked at humans ingame? Why should he be super realistic looking when he never did?

    Kalimdor and EK definitelly have different styles; and I'm not sure why tbh.

    I love comic book style art, but for something that is just going to be one image for a whole expansion, they should go for a more painterly piece, as it was and it is still for Kalimdor.

    Both arts from Ludo Lullabi. I actually love his work, even though he overdoes it sometimes.

    One thing about Blizzard, you gotta give them credit for being able to cut more corners than a carpenter. They could have had new artwork done but decided to go for copy-pasting onto a background image. Then again, if the speed turned out to be anything like their modeling efforts, it would have taken the artist two months of full-time to draw the outlines.

    I mean, if I was getting paid bank to do things by the hour that'd take a college intern a week, I'd take months to do it, too.

    Ugh, I think I realized 'why'. If t's really the reason, it's stupid... all of them have the
    art that was used for their short stories. -_-

    Baine looks like he's shoving that horn up his nose.

    I like everything else, though. I especially like how they shoehorned Thrall in there even though he's not technically a faction leader anymore. Unless he's the orc faction leader again.
