We have a winner for our art contest for Travels Through Azeroth and Outland, Destron's amazing fan-fic serial. The author selected this piece sent by submitter Mitch Death to appear in the fan-fic blog. Travels Through Azeroth transports readers to Azeroth and Outland as seen through the eyes of itinerant traveller Destron the mage. This ongoing, lore-based tale is deep -- deep enough in quantity to have accumulated years' worth of entries, and deep enough in content to be recommended by TVTropes.com.
We've included large versions of both of Mitch's submissions, plus my own personal favorite (from reader Raymond Liang), in the mini-gallery below.

More creative tidbits from our talented readers, after the break.
Great White Snark. This high-energy rendition of Sartharion comes from MeMe's Treat Boutique and features orange cake spiked with Red Bull energy drink. Like Sartharion himself, we have to ask: How much caffeine can you take?
The next, a birthday cake, comes to us from reader Mooseman. We know you'll get the obvious reference.
Continuing with the cute, we have a nice little gallery of cuteness from Cynisca of US Arathor-A, who made the amigurumis below based on her family's WoW characters. "I like to call them WoWgurumis," she explains. She uses the "Tiny Ami" pattern found in Amigurumi World by Ana Paula Rimoli as her foundation, modified to make them slightly larger. Then she adds her own WoW touches: draenei or imp horns, night elf ears and so on. She hand embroiders the faces, based on sketches she creates beforehand. Armor is made from felt and fabric paint. "I like to craft these because they are quick, portable and I can work on them between pulls," she says. Looks like a productive use of time, to us!

And finally, we confess to being completely and utterly in love with this next submission from reader Lin -- if only we knew what they were. Yes, they're little Yoggs ... But Yogg whats? They are coming for you...
