DOTA Loading Screen Wallpaper by Artgerm DOTA Loading Screen Wallpaper by Artgerm
Finally this image has made its way to the loadscreen of DOTA version 6.36, with some added colours and tweaks suggested by IceFrog. You can see the previous version here > [link]

In order to make the colour version of this image work, I couldn't simply overlay it with flat shades of colours, otherwise it would end up looking like colourised grayscale image, which would be boring. Instead, I've added quite a bit of subtle colour shifts and altered the values in many areas to make it visually pleasant and balanced. Therefore for those who love playing DOTA, hopefully you will enjoy this new loading screen. :)

Colours added in Photoshop, 1.5 hrs.

This one is legendary! Brings back memories... thanks artgerm for all of your amazing artworks <3
Btw, are they paying you decently for your dota2 artworks for sale at the steam store? I hope they are! You deserve it! Gotta buy them :3

Hi hi. Just paying tribute to this awesome memory of my gaming youth.

It's amazing how a still image could set the tone for a game like this one did~

Illidan is only more green when he is holding his weapons. They glow green. His body is a purplish color, since he was a night elf.
