Diablo Fan Art Watch #143: Let there be Fan Art


Welcome back friends to the latest installment of the Diablo Fan Art Watch featuring artwork from our D3 and D1/D2 Fan Art Galleries. Without further delays let’s begin.

We begin this week as we are less than a week away from the release of Diablo III. With that we start here with Tyrael by Yuan. This piece is simple but epic. Made to look like it was painted on a wall. We see Tyrael standing on a ledge with sword drawn in the air by one hand triumphant in battle.

Continuing from there we head off down to the bowels of the burning hells and a Lesser Evil by Zpanzer which was tweeted by Bashiok. This 3-D piece has amazing details and nice lighting showing off one of those lesser demons from the Black Soulstone video. Just look at those glowing eyes; they want to peer into your soul.

Running away with our lives we leave the burning hells and head for the lands of Ivgorod and meet up with a Monk by Deleo. Nicely penciled and color; this monk is ready for battle in all her detailed armor. Got Blood?

From there we head to the dreadlands and join in the battle with another Monk by Ferdinand Hertel – winner of the Gamestar D3 Fan Art Contest; as he is battling hells legions on unstable land. The detail of this piece is amazing. The detail of the demons in the back; to the dirt giving way to the monk as well as the monk himself. Get lost in the battle-scene.

As we leave that epic battle behind we head back to the past; 20 years ago and encounter an Amazon by Kaymonstar. This simple stylized piece is nice, clean and crisp. Perfect for any sticker, avatar, and art book.

Last but not least in this 20 years past time jump we encounter a more updated twist on the 3 Prime Evils in Pony Form; My Little Prime Evils by masterrottweiler. This would satisfy any pony fan. The detail work done here is impressive to say the least.

  1. The word ‘epic’ is not worthy in describing that Monk.

    Ferdinand Hertel should really submit it to the reveal.diablo3.com Art Contest also.

  2. the monk is epicness himself…
    like this video…it’s been released the last reveal from blizzard:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=LEAPxgMCEA8
    the eternal conflict! 

  3. Oh god they even have their D1 manual sigils as cutie marks. GJ.
     
    Friendship is Sinful?
    Friendship is Destruction?
    Evil is Magic?

    I’d still like to see the mane six as Diablo classes. This is probably the only popular game that hasn’t had that type of crossover yet. Maybe after release.
     

  4. Really an impressive batch. Even a D2 throwback, and the evil ponies for variety.

  5. The lesser evil by Zpanzer evokes the exact right feeling for Diablo for me.  Makes my elbows tingle.

    I like the Tyrael image a lot but for me the background is too overpowering.  Obviously it’s meant to dwarf Tyrael but the cracks make it look like a close up of the surface of a rock. If you scroll down the image so Tyrael isn’t viable that’s what its appears to be.  It’s only when he comes into view you realise it’s the face of a cliff.

    I’d like to see the image of Tyrael on the rock as a piece on its own.
