Welcome everyone to the Diablo Fan Art Watch. This week we bring you a z-brush piece featuring the Wizard by FuriousMing who was inspired by Wei Wang’s Wizard. The attention to detail on everything is impressive. Such care was given and a lot of time had to have been done making this. Here’s what he had to say in his post in the forums:
This is a fanart I did based on the male wizard concept art by Wei Wang (Whose art I am a big fan of). When Blizzard first announced the concept for the wizard I fell in love with its design immediately. Despite the initial controversy surrounding its design, I found that the snobby expression, the whole far-eastern influence, the mixture of ornate metal armor and fine robe really sold the upper echelon spell caster image to me. I went about to re-create the character in 3D, please let me know what you guys think!
There are a couple more images that can be found on my website at www.cobolyu.com
You can also check out the Diablo fanart I did earlier at the gallery section too. Thanks!
