Warcraft Twitter Class Icons

For a bit of fun, I thought I’d turn a standard, very well-known Twitter bird icon into a series of WoW Class Icons. I wish I knew who made the original image to credit them, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to find out. The colors for each bird follow the color conventions of the in-game map dots.

The Druids get a little something extra, despite being node-stealers; they have an additional tank bird that struck me as amusing as I was working on their final class icon. You’ll find the Bonus Tank Druidbird below the main bird section.

At any rate, feel free to use these for any non-profit icon or avatar use you’d like; credited use is, as ever, much appreciated. Enjoy!

After wrapping up all the Stained Class classes, I knew I wanted to go back and re-work the first three (plus the hunter) to fit into the theme that developed a bit later in the process.

Today’s installment is the Priest- near and dear to my heart as it is- in all his or her glory.

I tried to represent the Disc, Holy, and Shadow facets of the finest profession (no slight intended) in the game equally, and am pretty pleased with the results: The ubiquitous Disc bubble, the Holy halos and wide-ranging group heals, the Orbs and darkness of Shadow Priests– plus, of course, our beloved, misguided, and thoroughly unreliable Shadowfiend clinging to his master. I couldn’t resist using my own Disco, Liala, as the model. All in all, it feels thoroughly right (though I understand completely that a BLOOD ELF representation is deepest blasphemy!).

The original Priest Stained Class can be found here, if you feel nostalgic for last month.

Next up are the reboot versions of the earlier Paladin and Mage classes, and then I’ll have to redo the Hunter (the original of which no one liked, including me). So enjoy these, enjoy those, and enjoy what’s coming next.

Stained Class Series: The Death Knight

Today’s installation of the Stained Class series is the final class to get a window, the Death Knight. Those raised undead warriors of Arthas’ evil plans feature in nearly every account. Who among us doesn’t have a DK hiding in a back pocket, or boldly serving as our main, or jumping in to fill a gap in a raid? Those Veterans of the Third War rise above the rotten fruit and catcalls to prove themselves again and again. To my staunch Death Knight friends, and my own beloved Hardly, /salute.

Now that all the classes are complete, I’ll go back and re-execute the Priest, the Paladin, the Mage and the Hunter to match the style of the later stained glasses.

It’s been a huge amount of fun to create the Stained Class series, but the feedback you’ve all been kind enough to give has been the best part of it for me. Thank you all so much for your continued support, eyeballs, and words of encouragement!

Stained Class Series: The Warrior

I’ve been messing around lately with a few new artistic styles, and have gotten a great deal of inspiration from Medieval manuscripts and period stained glass pieces. I was so pleased with the way the original Priest piece turned out that I decided to execute all of the Warcraft classes in the same style in a series called ‘Stained Class’.

Today’s installation of the Stained Class series is the long-suffering Warrior. Whether graciously defending our sorry butts from mobs, whipping themselves into a froth of anger on our behalf, or wielding two swords for the price of one, no group would be complete without them. May your Stained Class be as badass as you are, my friends.

The final Stained Class will be the long-overlooked Death Knights, those undead abominations unto Azeroth (how we love them!). After that final class is complete, I’ll go back and re-execute the Priest, the Paladin, the Mage and the Hunter to match the style of the later stained glasses.
