Leave a comment

Most of us grind through Classic and focus on getting level 60 for the most part. Many of the players do not pay attention to the quests along the way, but Vlad Harabagiu Does.

This artist, Vlad Harabagiu, does pay attention to the quests. But not only that, he does something amazing with the quests and the experiences. This artist brings memorable quests and experiences a new life. A new life in the form of a drawing.

The person behind the incredible art is Vlad Harabagiu from Romania. Almost for a month now, Vlad draws memorable moments from his Classic journey and shares them with the world.

Every few days for the past month, he draws and shares his art on ArtStation and Reddit. In other words, each of his pieces represents his progression in the game.

His first artwork that he shared was about a quest giver in Durotar, a troll by the name Hana’zua. Vlad shared his first artwork of this kind on both Reddit and ArtStation.

Vlad shared his first drawing under the title “Playing WoW Classic so I thought why not draw scenes memorable quests and experiences? This first one is for Hana’zua, the troll bested by Sarkoth in the Valley of Trials.”. It was shared on both subreddits /r/wow and /r/classicwow on Reddit. The majority of the people liked the artwork and the idea and the posts received around 4000 upvotes.

Here are some of the other parts Vlad has already done, all of them under the name “A Classic Journey”.

What is special with the drawings is that Vlad takes ordinary quests and turns them into dramatic moments. So far the response from the community, especially Reddit, has been very positive. Players like the artworks and encourage the artist. One Redditor wrote: “Blizzard should hire you to make an anime of this. This is super cool. Well done.”

In response to all the support, Vlad has started a Patreon with the aim of turning these drawings into an actual comic book.
