Blizzard Europe has posted an interview with fan artist Romain de Santi, whose work has been featured in both the US and EU art galleries. It's an interesting interview that gives some insight about how de Santi creates his illustrations. To hopeful artists, he offers this advice: Always sacrifice a gnome before beginning work. More seriously, fan-art remains a form of drawing and apart from applying yourself and working hard, there are no miracle recipes for success. You must observe a lot, be curious and motivated.
