While avid Hearthstone players are probably well aware that artists and even Blizzard itself routinely release the entire art that is eventually cropped into its final card form, it's really not all that common to see the concept art that went into creating the pieces. We've been on the hunt to find a few of these for the upcoming Mean Streets of Gadgetzan set and there is a surprising number of them out in the wild already.
Today we have art by Rafael Zanchetin, a freelance artist who's previously done artwork for cards like Purify, Darkshire Librarian, and Wicked Witchdoctor. He is joined by Mike Azevedo, another Brazilian freelance artist known for his work for Riot Games including the splash arts for Malzehaar and Undertaker Yorick. And finally, we have Jim Nelson who is behind the likes of Aberrant Berserker, Eerie Statue, and more.

- Grimestreet Enforcer
- Random fact: The file for Grook Fu Master would indicate it was once called Eternal Oathkeeper.
