World of WarCrafts: A WoW-inspired grab bag of creativity


World of WarCrafts spotlights art and creativity by WoW players, including fan art, cooking, comics, cosplay, music and fan fiction. Show us how you express yourself; contact our tips line (attention: World of WarCrafts) with your not-for-profit, WoW-inspired creations.

It's catch-up day at World of WarCrafts! We have all sorts of little goodies to pass along that have been piling up in the submissions box. So tuck in and get comfy with this snuggly little fellow from Serthida of US Bloodhoof, the crafter who brought us last year's plush moonkin. Don't worry, he won't drain your mana ... or your creativity.

More from the World of WarCrafts, after the break.

Boss bites mashup

What would it sound like if you started with a pumping beat and then laid down sound bites from Hodir, Thorim, Auriaya, XT-002 Deconstructor, Kologarn, Yogg-Saron, Ignis, the Lich King and Eadric the Pure? This catchy remix (above) from Lionell of US Moon Guard earns an Ear Worm Alert. Approach with caution, lest you find yourself wailing "No, no, no!" for the rest of the day ...

... But if your "No, no, NO!" meter isn't pegging into the red yet, we've got another track for you to toy with: the XT-002: U R Bad Toys remix from MrVoletron.

A place to lay your head

If a hearthstone doesn't sound like a very nice spot to lay your character's weary head after a hard night of raiding, then you obviously haven't seen these hearthstone pillows from lilninjabear at [via Spritestitch]

But wait -- we have more hearthstones, this time of the hard, pocketable variety. These to the right come from reader Stacy, who linked the hearthstones she'd been creating in a WarCrafts post late last summer. We'd make a couple for ourselves, but we're betting that having one of these on your desk might not bode well for concentration or staying put 'til the end of the day ...

Rap in search of an animator

Deeluxejon, a member of Rogue Stole My Life on US Khaz'goroth, is on the prowl for a machinimator interested in using his (NSFW) track DatDudeBang in a video. Interested in some roguish rap? Look him up on his YouTube page.

Free animated WoW screensavers

The ominous flames from the Forge of Souls ... the restful waters of the Temple of the Moon ... A moonlit night in Grizzly Hills ... Ok, people, this find is simply beyond cool: animated screensavers from Anthony at Warcraft Screensavers. Not only do these gorgeous PC screensavers include music and ambient sound -- they're free to download! No still picture we could include here would do them justice. So go and see!

Pencil cup totem

Changing gears entirely ... We're smitten with this idea for a pencil cup, sent in by the exams-frazzled yet determinedly WoW-focused player Eric. Anyone care to tackle a heroic version? Send us screenshots of your achievement!

Long Long Journey

Sentimental types will appreciate the simple machinima above, set to the song of the same name by Enya. While this night elf's reflective journey through the World of Warcraft is probably a little too simplistic for the likes of WoW Moviewatch, enough commenters appreciated its scenery that we thought it was worth a WarCrafts thumbs up to creator Cymelion.

Bronze statuary

There are school projects, and then there are School Projects. The behemoth pictured below comes from a sculpture department student's graduation work from a Chinese Academy of Fine Arts. [via]
