Right, as I view these, I realize I've asked you to share them before, haha.
Loved the spacecraft one btw!
Haha. That's the only one that has something of a story behind it.
It's a Medivac from StarCraft 2, a transport and healing unit in one.
When the Heart of the Swarm expansion came out, Blizzard buffed the Medivac a bit and gave it a boost you could manually activate that doubled its speed for a few seconds. It was extremely useful and considered overpowered by many players in the early days.
Another change they added at one point was giving Zerg's anti-air defense building (Spore Crawler) a double damage boost vs biological air units, so that Mutalisk compositions in Zerg vs Zerg could have a little more counterplay.
At one point I made a little comic drawing about that change and posted it to reddit. It became a hit overnight due to how shitty it looked
People said they wanted to see more, so I linked them to my other drawings (the ones I just posted above). A lot of them reacted with surprise, and one dude requested: "Could you draw a medivac with boost on like that? :o that would be awesome"
. He didn't specify whether he wanted the serious style, or the microsoft paint style, so I did both
And that's how the MediShoop came to be...
The best part is, that the spore crawler post reached enough meme status to get animated by Blizzard celebrity CarbotAnimation (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ:･✧
