Original artwork (loading screen from the game resources) - [link]

Zurvan (or the Ancient One) was a primal zerg of Zerus. Zurvan was spawned before the Overmind, and lived to see the return of the Zerg Swarm to Zerus during the Second Great War. It shepherded a deinfested Sarah Kerrigan's rebirth into the Swarm, before being killed and having its essence absorbed by her.

Zurvan was younger than the power found in the first spawning pool but older than the first Overmind. It escaped being incorporated into the Swarm hivemind and remained on Zerus when the Swarm left the planet. In time, it became a pack leader and became immense both in power and physique.[3] By the time the Swarm and a deinfested Sarah Kerrigan returned to Zerus, it had been millennia since Zurvan's last evolution.

On the advice of Zeratul, a protoss Dark Templar, Kerrigan sought out Zurvan to help her claim the power of primal zerg. The Swarm fed Zurvan quillgor to awaken it. The primal Brakk and its pack unsuccessfully attempted to halt the awakening. Zurvan instructed Kerrigan in the ways of the primal zerg and the ancient history of the zerg. Most importantly, it directed her to use the first spawning pool to transform into a primal-based human-zerg hybrid; the new form was more powerful than the old Queen of Blades.

When Kerrigan came to Zerus, she was far less powerful than Zurvan. Once a reinfested Kerrigan killed and absorbed the essences of the other pack leaders, she became worth consuming. She expected Zurvan's challenge, and killed and absorbed its essence as well.

How did you get this picture from the game resources? Did you use the scenario editor?

Wow, he is both gargantuan and magnificent. He's every inch the ancient, and powerful patriarch he is supposed to be.

Good job with the re-contrasting. It's certainly revelatory.

Возможно, но уровень художников и любителей рисовать фан-арты в сообществе SC2 достаточно высок - все рисуют профессиональные арты и произведения искусства. Так что тут я просто по-мелочи развлекаюсь. Я не художник, а просто любитель.
