some friend tell me my stain-glass style painting about WoW has been mentioned in a famous game…
"The World of Warcraft fan art of Chinese artist Jian Guo lies somewhere between medieval storybook art and stained glass window, telling visual stories of Warcraft lore in gorgeous, highly-detailed works.

Below is Guo's "Fall of Arthas," one of a handful of lovely art pieces inspired by World of Warcraft. Other must-see storybook murals from Guo include "Blood Sunset," "Journey of Faith" and "Ancient Wars."

Prints are available for each, but even if you don't feel like spending, check out the rest of Guo's World of Warcraft fan art at deviantArt, along with plenty of StarCraft and Fallout inspired stuff."

Thank you so much for these beautiful pieces of artwork. I wish I had the money to buy them all on large, block-mounted prints so I could display them in my art room. The attention to detail and representation of the lore of both WoW and LotR is just phenominal. You are so talented, and words can't express it enough.

Having seen some of your work on blizzard's fanart section, it was only after I beheld your mural/glass style work that I sought you out and found you here. The style is gorgeous, and as a bit of a medievalist, I think they put a mark on these stories that makes them feel all the grander for it. I earnestly hope to see more of these, depicting whate'er tale you so desire.

I love your stained glass prints , I would so buy them all if I wasn't so broke T^T. Are you going to do any more? I would love to see ones based off of Goblins and the Worgen (especially the Worgen!)

These -are- amazing, and I'm so glad that someone wrote an article about it for you! I love looking for the little details within the images, you pile so much into one picture. It's wonderful.

I came to find your work here via Kotaku, too - and great work it is for sure. Your pictures are posted on less copyright-oriented websites like 4chan on a more or less regular basis as well and I've always been wondering who drew them, so I'm kinda glad I managed to find your art page.
Keep up the great work, and cheers from germany!
