Hearthstone Cinematic: Voyage to the Sunken City

The Mooncolony team have had the pleasure of providing the art and illustrations for another Hearthstone cinematic trailer. Blizzard have now released “Voyage to the Sunken City”, an expansion that explores the ancient underwater ruins of Zin-Azshari, the once-thriving capital city of the night elves from the Kaldorei Empire (for those clued up on their World of Warcraft lore).

As much as we love working on the art itself, we always enjoy watching our illustrations come to life through the magic of the incredible animations and magnificent music. Hidden behind each cinematic are many teams made up of talented individuals that come together to create these polished productions.

Amongst these individuals are some of our brilliant artists. For us, the process usually starts with a storyboard and art direction from the Blizzard team, followed by a collaboration between up to seven of our artists under the watchful eye of one of our project managers and art directors. Our artists come from all over the world, with varying backgrounds and areas of expertise. We constantly inspire one another and encourage each other to produce work to the highest standard possible, making us a great and efficient team!

We’d also like to give our thanks for the ongoing support and feedback from the following people involved in this project:
Director: Mike Koizumi
Producers: Ash Brown / Emily Hsu
Art Directors: Ellinoora Laine / Sam Nielson
Storyboards/Layouts: Ludo Lullabi
Mosto Lead: Jon Styles

So trade your spacesuit for a wetsuit, and dive into the cinematic below or check out all of the illustrations on ArtStation.
