The world and characters of Activision/Blizzard’s fantasy FPS Overwatch have inspired an official comic, countless works of epic fanfiction, and even an X-rated parody or two. In this week’s Esports Source Community Spotlight we’re highlighting some of the artists from the Overwatch fandom who have recently shared their creativity on Twitter.
If you’d like your original art from *any* esports game to be included in a future Community Spotlight, feel free to email us at [email protected] and we may pick you for a feature!
(Please only submit art you have created yourself. Signal boost other artists’ work by tagging us in the replies on Twitter!)
