- Monsters — from the Ancients to Magnataurs to Yeti
- Environments — landscapes and flora, from the magnificent beauty of Emerald Paradise to the bleak wasteland of Desolace
- Structures & Weapons — buildings, transports, arms, and armor
- Cinematics — from storyboard to finished art
- Promotional — full-page artwork, special drawings from Korea, and the Blizzard 2003 Christmas Card
