After sticking to the desert the last two weeks, this week’s new Diablo 3 Wallpaper from HolyKnight3000 goes tropical and visits the lovely Amazon homeland isle of Skovos, as envisioned by Blizzard artist Peter Lee.
Players will not be able to explore this location in Diablo 3, at least not in the initial retail release, but at least we can enjoy the concept art. Right on your own desktop, if you click through to get this image in an appropriately-large size. Here’s a quote from HK’s caption, to give you some insight into his creative process.
A remake of the old Skovos Islands wallpaper I made using the current style of the locations series. I did a few variations of the blue where the world map was but they were too blinding bright, and so i went with a darker tone to match the deep waters around the island.
Unfortunately the runes stand out but hopefully not so much as to detract from the image. On a side note I am starting work on revamping the old runes. Been doing some runework for my wow guild’s site.
