    Why such "hard" art?

    Why is Overwatch's art so rough? It's not soft, but really, really hard, like it's made of rocks. Why?

    Not to sound condescending because I understand art is subjective but what do you mean hard? If anything it looks very Pixar... especially more on its use of colour. the art seems very soft really but then I am not sure, I don't understand what you mean by hard and rocky. I mean the art seems very circular and rounded to me, with lots of soft edges and light tones.

    Unless you mean bulky... because the Blizzard style (not including Starcraft and Diablo), can be quite chunky, it mirrors the old Samwise art from the 90's especially in Warcraft and Hearthstone. Warcraft since Warcraft 2 have had a very chucky graphic style. and I tend to like that style. For me anyway

    Proof is boring. Proof is tiresome. Proof is irrelevance. People would rather be handed an easy lie than search for a difficult truth, especially when it suits their own purpose.

    Unsure what you mean with "hard" art?
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    Idk if I'd call it hard, but OW has a pretty distinct art style that works well imo. It's neutral and wholesome and plays with proportions a lot.

    I'm pretty sure that OP is talking about the edges.
