Dote Night: A Gallery In Three Lanes

Defence of the artworks

One of my habits is searching art and design forums for what their denizens are doing with Dota 2. There's some excellent stuff out there - cute cartoons, painstaking pixel art, whimsical watercolours and [other alliterative thing here]. To that end I've been poking about on Behance. It's a platform for artists seeking to showcase their work. It used to be that a site search for "Dota 2" would yield little - maybe some pixel sketches or loading screen-style character art - but going back to it today I found far more.

The feature I'd originally planned for tonight had to be postponed so I thought this might be the perfect opportunity share some of what I'd found while bimbling about earlier in the week (plus a link to the artist's page in case you were interested in following up on their stuff). I'm focusing on what's been put on the one platform simply because I'm experimenting with ways to share this kind of thing in manageable chunks. I think in future what I might do is focus in on a particular hero or idea and explore that further. Until then, here are some rad things:
