Earlier today Lylirra posted up an update in the “Design a Legendary” blog with an updated piece of concept art for the one handed sword drawn by artist Aaron Gaines which was themed to be based on Mephisto the Lord of Hatred.
As noted, this was just the inital sketch, the first step in implementing the visual design of this particular Legendary weapon into the game. For many items in Diablo III, concepting goes through several stages, and today we’re excited to share a new piece of concept art with all of you.
Many of you had feedback for Aaron, and he was excited to incorporate your suggestions and criticisms into this updated design. Some of the most notable changes based on player feedback include:
Here are the results!
Thanks to everyone who provided feedback and suggestions. We’ll have more visual progress updates and images to share in the new year.
Until then, happy holidays!
