There's also a very big disconnect of the artstyles of the Kalimdor and EK loading screens.. Kalimdor keeps the current, mostly realistic style, but the EK one is very cartoonish and comicbook-like. Definately can't say I like it, Varian and Sylvanas especially both look awful, and I can't say I'm a fan of Grimdark Animu Lor'themar.

Edit:

Mekkatorque looks like a fucking boss, though.

Mekkatorque looks good until you notice his left hand. What the fuck is that supposed to be? That's not a hand.

It looks like recycled art for me. I swear i've seen those things somewhere else.

Nothing bad in the concept of it, but the result just looks awful when i look those.

Duckface Slyvanas.

EDIT:

From here a lot of them are recycled: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Funny though only one of the three dwarfs is on there then, come on is there going to be an excuse there is too much work on WoD to rather wait and put some work into an actual loading screen?

That's because it is recycled art. They've just copypasted them from artwork and put them on the loading screen and say "hey, look. It's new stuff, we promise."

You're joking right? Wrynn feels so out of place, that pose look dumb too, and he takes up way too much space. Sticks out like a sore thumb.
Was primarily thinking of Greymane. Varian looks retarded, but that's very IC for him, so I'm ok with that. Mekkatorque has evidently lost his left hand and become a cyborg.

Edit:
Mind, I don't really like any of the current loading screens though. The Kalimdor one and Northrend ones being the ones I dislike the most.

2nd edit:
Something about the angle between Sylvanas' boobs and face looks wrong to me.

I'd like to see the base expressions they are planning on doing to diversify the faces and make them look more like the originals. Right now, I can't see any difference between the various draenei ones. Or, well, any of the new faces so far.

"Same face" has been replaced by "only mildly different face".

That loading screen is absolute garbage. I know art is subjective, and opinions are like arseholes etc etc.

But that? What crap. DuckfaceSelfieQueen, EmoAnimeElf, CrippleMidget, WonkyFaceConstipatedWolfboi... phew.

UnknownDwarf and GrimacingGenn are about the best. And even then, not good. Strangely squished and misshapen anyway. It's so bad I'd hope it's not true.

Then again, it's only a loading screen. And the other one is much better (especially Baine with his horn).

Draenor loading screen looks pretty nice, even if it's the old grouphug picture.

Gallywix is maybe the most jarring to me, if only because his (admittedly rarely seen) in-game model is just a regular goblin.

There is a jarring difference between the sound and the animation, in pretty much any animation that has a sound.

In a lot of cases the animation does not match the timing of the sound at all, or the animation is over long before the sound is.

Irritating.

You judge them too quickly. Wait until we're closer to release when the models are polished up. Obviously they're not gonna be on-par Today as they're still working on them

Talador track sure's a change from the more resigned, serene music I'm used to from Draenei areas. Still, one of the better tracks, haven't been overly impressed with the WoD ost so far.

Gorgrond with its electric guitar is a strange beast compared to the rest of WoW music. Reminds me of Forge or Souls in how it breaks the norm.

It reminds me of Halo, actually - a nice way to mix in electric guitars with more conventional orchestration to make it 'pop out', but not overtake the whole thing as some kinda hybrid monstrosity (See Metallica S&M album).

Gallywix is just great, that's a king I'd gladly serve

I like it a lot, but I would have used something like in a dungeon that rather than a questing zone, I don't think such a lavish music can fit the slow-paced experience of leveling and exploring.

I really quite like Genn's art.
And the dwarf is hardly unknown that's Muradin if I ever saw him, however inactive he might be compared to Moira.


As for Mekkatorque, to me it looks like he's just grasping around the hilt of his.. whatever gnomish tool that was.

It also looks just like the portals inside the mage tower.

So I'd sooner think it has something to do with that.

The World Tree Portals (Seradane, Twilight's Grove, Star's Rest, etc) share the same models as the Mage Tower gateways.

I'd guess that it is the Alliance way of getting to Draenor, after the initial Dark Portal quests. The tents are Kirin Tor. The Portal are of mages. How else are we sending out reinforcements to Draenor if we'd block access for the Orcs through The Dark Portal to Azeroth?

The Vines is just "corruption seeping through", just like Dark Portal corrupted Blasted Lands to appear as Hellfire Peninsula.

Corruption, from Shadowmoon? or Ashran?
