Also, this will probably turn up in a fan art watch in a week or two, but it’s worth a look now. An amazingly well done overhead view of the city of Caldeum, created by softshack. Take a closer look and join the rest of us in saying, “That’s not official artwork? But it’s as good or better than the stuff Blizzard releases?”
