Overwatch is one of the most popular games on the planet. With a selectable cast of 23 characters, and a rich backstory that spans over 40 years, there's plenty of inspiration to draw from when creating fan art.
Thousands of images have been created, ranging from the cartoony to the hyper-realistic. Some are funny, some are sad, and some are downright disturbing. Characters are re-imagined with crazy new skin concepts, mashed up with other franchises, and even gender-swapped in some truly awesome pieces. Some illustrators like to explore the lore of the game. They even flesh out stories we've heard but haven't seen, like the Battle of Anubis, or the showdown between Soldier:76 and Reaper.
And of course, as with every franchise on the planet, the Internet would be remiss without some sexy versions of our favorite characters, like D.Va as a Playboy bunny, Hanzo baring his chest in an open tuxedo, or basically any illustration of Witch Mercy.
So here they are, in all shapes and sizes. The good, the bad, and the ugly: here's the best Overwatch fan art on the Internet!
This menacing illustration from rossdraws perfectly captures Reaper's essence. "Die, die, DIE!"
