Diablo Fan Art Watch #112: Warlord of Blood


Welcome friends to the latest installment of the Diablo Fan Art Watch. This week we go back to the days of DiabloWikiDiablo I and greet the Warlord of Blood painted by Orangehamster.

He has also provided us with a video of a step by step of his work on this piece below. Here’s a quote from his post.

13 hours to do this one, so tired. Well, this is a dedication to one of my favorite games growing up, Diablo 1 (I’m saying “1” cause many people think of Diablo 2 when you talk about diablo).

In this drawing I made one of the bosses, Warlord of Blood, he is very hard to kill, and was the one who always scared me the most while playing (even more than diablo itself).

    1. This guy/gal is a great artist. It would be cool to see some of this sort of style in the game. It is so discomforting.

      • this is 95% photo manipulation and 5% drawing ..  so much copy paste , and mirroring … filter and texture overlays …yet he is not able define a clear lightsource, and describe form properly … his whole process is trial and error -which is properly why this … took him 13 hours
        as far as fan art goes – a modest piece.

        • the scientific term for you would be: “kill joy”

          I enjoy this image more than what the actual person looks like in Diablo. This is more scary looking. I especially enjoyed the invisible monsters in Diablo they always scared me with their noises and randomly appearing everywhere with big clawed hands ehhh!

          • i never said that people could not possibly enjoy it … im just describing what i see – and if you look at the process you can hardly say iam wrong …
            i can atleast point out what i dont like about it :/ even though its not appreciated
            whereas vague description of “scary” is appreciated here … but nevermind i wont reply anymore to discussions concerning Fine Arts VS. personal taste

            • your right it’s a lot of effort for something that outside of the drawing is not very good. Your still a kill joy which was my point. I like the drawing not necessarily the effects. I think the drawing is a good monster that I would enjoy having in game.
