[Need advice] Loading Screen Photoshopping

Greetings everyone!

I need some advice from photoshop artists about methods I should use to "convert" HD INGAME or  Noggit(surely w/o fog) or even Blender screenshots to Blizzard styled image. 

I hope someone can help me with advice.

Well I'm almost sure thats not painting, but just PS editing of screenshots.

How to make this:

Blizzard style? You mean Vanilla WoW logo in loading screens?

The Naxxramas one is really easy to make. It seems to be a black and white picture with a cooling filter, then they duplicated the layer, applied a high pass of 5,5 or so, and then played with the the high pass layer levels and changed blend mode to "multiply". Then they painted some lights and shadows by hand. Here is the PSD in case you were wondering. Took me 2 minutes or so.

The Blackwing Lair loading screen is more complex. It has a lot of custom lights. The lava is hand painted. The corners are hand painted as well to make them feel more rounded. Also, they added an opening on the right wall, so it has a lot of custom stuff going on.

May I add that the loading screens are actually separate art pieces that are just based on the images you took ingame. The advice I could offer you is to probably seek out an artist for 40$ ish, or perhaps just play around with filters until you get the desired effect you're looking for via photoshop.
