These Heroes of the Storm skin concepts make me wish it wasnt in maintenance mode

DJ and Pop Star skins

Skin ideas were among the best in any game: back when the game was at its height. That uh, isn''t the case anymore, but these Blizzard senior artist Juyoung Oh actually demonstrated how kind the team could be.

These skins were discovered on Reddit when they were first published during a HOTS Hackathon in 2018, with Oh revealing them two years ago. These are not a personal project, but I can easily see them as skins in the games heyday.

The skins are DJ Kid Murky, Pop star Li-Ming, and Selfiegenic Stitches. All of them have concept art of different parts of their kit, as well as a few are genius. Murkys egg (where he hibernates when he dies in battle, only to get resurrected quicker than most MOBA characters) has a router and a cell phone charger on it. Stitches even puts a party on for his eaters.

Azmodunk was perhaps the most effective example of how out-there the skin teams could get. They even recorded real basketball noises just for the skin! Blizzard 2016: it feels like a different timeline.
