Diablo III Wallpaper #104: Bloody Battle and Rune Swirl

It’s been a few weeks since our last Diablo 3 Wallpaper update, but with some new arts in the gallery, here we go again.

Both the new pieces are by Holyknight3000, and if you click the pics below you’ll see them at desktop sizes. The more recent takes one of the Blizzcon 2011 winning pieces of fan art and sets the Bloody Battle in a dank dungeon hallway. Or, as I asked HK when I saw it, “Is this your homage to the trash compactor scene from Star Wars?”

The second piece is his thank you to all the viewers for three years of Diablo III wallpapers, and I rather like the swirly rune thing. See if you can’t get your girlfriend, or slutty sister, to ink that on the small of her back? HK’s comments, from the caption, are a little more on topic.

I loved how this image turned out so with the help of CS3 I used some tools and made the image a larger size. I had this 800×800 image on my desktop background and realized how awesome it was as a wallpaper.

So I figured it has been a couple years since I made a thank you wallpaper. So this one is for the fans of my wallpapers. Thanks for the comments, support and help over the past 3 years. I really could not have done it without you guys.

Here’s to many more years after the games release for wallpapers, art and fan fiction!

  1. Hey, you missed my piece, humble though it was.
    I think I at least put a little bit more effort into it than Blizz puts into the official ones, anyway. 🙄

    • It wasn’t in the gallery when I looked late Sunday night and these were the 2 new ones. I see there are 3 posted since then, so those, including yours, will go into next week’s update.

  2. I hope someone will have time to put up dual monitor version of some cool d3 wallpaper….  🙄

  3. I definitely like Holyknight’s version of bloody battle better than Blizz’s… they cut out two characters and the easter eggs in theirs… I really like the feeling that you are walking down a small dungeon passageway and suddenly you turn the corner and you see this crazy fight going on in a cramped side room… I wonder how he did the walls on either side…

    • I found a texture for some brick walls. took a few tries and then used some warping tools to help me make the walls look like they are. Once I got them at the right angle I tinted and tweaked them. When that was all done I painted the edge of the stones closest to the action. Then I used a style i learned from making my fiery runes wallpapers, and painted the edges of the stones to make them look like the light from the sides were being shown. I really loved how this wallpaper came out. It’s one of my personal favorites.
