Welcome all to the newest Diablo Fan Art Watch. This week we bring you 12 pieces of amazing fan art based on Diablo and the many heroes from throughout the blizzard universe in Heroes of the Storm. deviantART had the Heroes of the Storm: Ultimate Fan Art Contest that recently ended and they posted up the 25 finalists
Yesterday they revealed the 3 winners with Sam Didier as the judge and he had a few things to say for each of the winning entries. Beyond the winners are the others that featured someone from the diablo world and are my honorable mentions. This contest had so many pieces.
Encounter by TamplierPainter
“The Lightbringer against the Demon Hunter. The rendering of this piece is unbelievable. It looks like an oil painting done by one of the old masters. The sheer power of the paladin’s attack is balanced beautifully by the elegance of Valla’s riposte. I especially enjoy that the artist chose to create Uther and Valla wearing their Master armor variants. Another point of interest to me is Grimskull Nazeebo lurking in the background with his gargantuan. Although he hails from the Diablo-verse like the Demon Hunter, it is unclear to the me which side he is actually fighting for and, depending on the outcome of this battle, the victor may still have another battle on their hands.”
Battle Heroes by Kuzinski
“This piece represents the glorious mayhem that is Heroes of the Storm! Blue verses Red. Warcraft versus StarCraft versus Diablo (literally). This is what the game is all about: all of our heroes and villains locked in a rousing brawl of heroic proportions, and let’s not forget another aspect of the game…smashing the hell out of the innumerable nameless minions! These guys are real heroes as well since no matter how hard our toughest characters massacre them, they keep coming back to the fight!”
Battle Against the Grave Golem by Samarskiy
“I love this piece for so many reasons. All the heroes chosen for this image are perfect representations of our three worlds, but the real star of this image is the Grave Golem. Grave Golems were specifically created for Heroes of the Storm and are found on the various battlegrounds in our game. To see some of our oldest and most memorable heroes teaming up against one of our newest additions to the Blizzard world really lets me know that we are still creating creatures people are invested in.”
