No other video game developer does things (or more fitting, everything) quite like Blizzard Entertainment does. From developing, in my opinion, the most iconic video games to spectacular live events and tournaments, from highly detailed merchandise to a blockbuster feature film, Blizzard has this unique ability to bring a world of fantasy to life, fantasy that feels real and alive.
Blizzard has been know for bringing characters and items from their fictional worlds to life in various art forms and their latest is an iconic item from World of Warcraft; Ashbringer - a Paladin Artifact weapon. Watch legendary Hollywood blacksmith Tony Swatton of Sword and Stone use the mighty tools of his trade to bring Ashbringer to life.
Stock photography is one of those things that probably 99% of the world knows nothing about, yet sees it in action probably everyday of their lives. From tiny (annoying) online banner ads to gigantic roadside billboards, in boring company brochures to trendy magazine articles, stock photos are an essential part of our modern, visually saturated life. Basically, stock images are the alternative to sourcing images directly from a photographer or agency.
Service providers like iStockPhoto, Shutterstock and 123rf all essentially provide the same stock photo service with most images available, fitting a generic temple of sorts. Boring. Predictable. Sterotypical. Overused. That about sums up the bulk of the stock photo industry in my opinion... and then you have to pay for the images and then there are restrictions on how you may use 'their' images. However, I think there is a sort of 'Renaissance' taking place in the stock photography industry and it is being lead by Unsplash.
