Diablo 3 Wallpaper – Skovos


Skovos

Blizzard has updated their wallpaper gallery with another wallpaper. This image features the island of DiabloWikiSkovos which is the home of the DiabloWikiAmazon class. This island area is located to the south of the main continents of DiabloWikiSanctuary.

The image was first released back in January 2010 in a larger resolution which you can find in our environments gallery. It’s an incredibly detailed piece of work created by DiabloWikiPeter Lee back in 2007.


Update Perhaps we’ve been spoiled by the creativity shown by the community wallpaper creators, but damn do the official Diablo III wallpapers look generic. Blizzard’s got amazing artists and graphic designers coming out of their ears, and yet every official D3 wallpaper follows the same three steps: 1) Take old piece of concept art, 2) slap on letterbox style D3 logo whether it matches the artwork or not, 3) time for lunch!

Their creators have done better work on other pieces, but I’ll still take any of the four fan-made Skovos concept art wallpapers over the uninspired official version. Three of them are thumbed below.

  1. And all the ones you guys did are better than Blizzard’s, which is just the concept art slapped into a border/title that doesn’t even match.

    Obviously Blizzard has a lot of great artists, but it doesn’t seem like any of them have anything to do with D3 wallpapers, since they are sporadic, generic, and unimaginative.

  2. I akways think this island resemles to a demon head, diablo’s especially

  3. I see rune symbols from d2.

  4. I don’t know why they’d bother to make a wallpaper for an area that won’t be in the game. Albeit, Peter Lee is amazing, as is the piece, but so close to release you’d think they’d begin to shy away from that. But hey, they also had Ureh as the background for the beta client, so why not.

  5. now this is a great piece of art!
    i want the amazon 2 come back in diablo 3
    or just a class that uses Javelins :(((
