    Massive fan-art in the making.

    Hello people!

    Starting on a personal project for fun.
    I am going to illustrate each character class with their personal set.

    I'm currently working on the Necromancer and Druid, which are my favorite characters..
    Im pretty sure you know of Trang-Ouls Avatar.. but do you know the origin of the name behind it?
    by lore we learn that Trang-Oul is the dragon upon which the world lies. He is worshiped by the necromancers, and in return grants them wisdom and magic enchantations.
    In the game, if you have the complete set - your character turns into a monster-class called vampire, which looks more like a tall wraith-like creature. I will try to incorporate some dragon in the piece aswell.

    Here's what I've got so far

    And I need some help aswell!

    I would very much appreciate if you could help me with the Aldur set :) .. I don't know anything about Aldur. Can't find any lore behind the set or the person.. I assume he's some kind of guardian, having a "stony gaze" and a "watchtower"
    If anyone knows where I can find information about aldur, please send me a note.
    cheers!

    Oh and.. I forgot I had this user, so I started this thread with my old user "Alandir".

    From now on I will be posting with DefiledVisions.

    On to the druid. I'm going to sketch out all 7 characters before I render them.. it'll make it more fun ^^

    I've chosen to depict him in with parts of the summoning-spell tree and shapeshifting-tree.
    To the left you can see the carrion vine. It morphs into the werewolf, which in turn, morphs into the werebear, which morphs back into the most powerful of summons - grizzleybear.
    They're all interlaced to show that they're a part of the druids abilities.

    More work on the druid, and started working on the sorceress..

    I'm going to depict all three elements, and try to give the piece the feeling of her being possesed by Tal-Rasha.

    Very nice start. I will be keeping my eye on your progress, most definitely. Unfortunately, I know no D2 lore other than what I can look up on the Diablo wiki.

    It agree, it looks great. You really catch the feeling of the chars imo.

    I can't wait to see the Immortal King. By far my favourite set ^^

    Thanks Delowyn, yea same here. But it doesn't really matter.. some artistic freedom, and making him orange, and hopefully people will know its the set :p

    Thanks Fizh, I have some cool plans for IK ;)

    Re: Massive fan-art in the making.

    Phat Wolf - thanks man :)

    Did some changes to the druidpiece, instead of having him standing still, I've made him walk towards us like the necromancer. That way, I can have him being occupied with his summoning, and still interact with us viewers by walking towards us. I felt the piece wasn't interesting enough.. nevermind his foot, it looks really crappy.. maybe it would look better with the other foot?
    Also done with the sorceress sketch. Barbarian next I guess?.. ;)

    Here's are loved barb. By wearing the immortal king I've chosen to have the spirit of Bul-Kathos follow the hero, aiding him in battle.

    There are some elements I'm still uncertain of, especially the spirit behind him - I think the huge shoulderpads are a bit too much WoW, and also the weapon probably needs some change.
    What do you think of the look?

    Awesome! I'm impressed by how mighty he looks. Looks like he is about to smash me in the face!

    I completely forgot to say something constructive :b . I think his armor is good (also the shoulderplates). He has to look big and heavy imo. The maul should maybe have a wider head (don't know if that makes sense though). The helm is perfect ^^

    Re: Massive fan-art in the making.

    Wowo these are excellent. I really like the "sketchy" style you use. It's perfect for that possessed feeling. My favorite so far is the druid. By the way the footing is fine but I think the feet need for detail; so far it's just a solid line of color.

    I think the shoulder pads on the barb are fine, he needs to look big and tough. Anyways, great job on these.

    Re: Massive fan-art in the making.

    Fizh - thanks for the input! .. I made him wider, hopefully he'll look a bit more like a barb now. Havn't really worked on the weapon yet.

    Goldenbird - Thankyou! I'll try to maintain the sketchy style when I start rendering them aswell.


    Widened the barb a bit, he should look more bulky now :p what I'm worried about is the spirit of Bul-kathos.. might change him.. Trying to get that ghostly feeling that the necromancer has.

    anyway, thanks for the encouragement and feedback people! :)

    Amazing art, even though they're still sketchy.
    Makes me wanna fill up my sketchbook. ^^

    Mind showing more progress on the necromancer?

    I really like your style. I've always found drawing on a tablet to be a bit bothersome for anything other than coloring. I probably just need to practice more.

    What size tablet do you use?

    Re: Massive fan-art in the making.

    Phatwolf - thank you! :)

    Fallenchaos - haha thanks! gogo work that sketchbook.. ^^ I'm sorry but there's no progress on the necromancer yet. He is the first one I'll finnish though - so hang in there!

    Tragedian
    - Oh yes, practice is the key I think.. and motivation. Actually tablet nor size doesn't really matter.
    I'm using a wacom intuos2, old model.. it doesn't have the new technology the intuos3 series has, but still works fine. It's an A4 size, and imo, too big - but I got it cheap. A5 is probably the best size, since it doesn't take nearly half as much space, and you still have lots of area to draw on.
    If you want to know more about digital painting, just ask. I'll try to help out.

    Thank you for the encouragement guys!

    Sorry for the absence.. have been busy with school and a crappy part-time job I just got.

    Won't update often anymore.. anyway, Here's the Amazon.

    I was thinking of M'avina.. no idea who that is, I assume she's some great amazon warrior. But I didn't want to incorporate her the way the barbarian has Bul'Kathos.. so I'll leave it up to you, M'avina could be the valkyrie? .. or maybe not ;)
