    "The Art of Diablo III" - images from GDC 2012

    Japanese site 4Gamers.net came through again with some awesome pics taken at this years GDC featuring our favourite game. "The Art of Diablo III" lecture was presented by Art Director Christian Litchner, some monster images might be considered spoilery so I wont post them in this thread. Enjoy!

    I kind of wish Blizzard left that one in. The art controversy would have been even more delicious.

    I have to agree here. The others looked WAY better. I havnt looked into the lore spoilers yet, but it makes you wonder if it wasn't based off some lore decision.

    I disagree. Most of those don't look like Diablo at all but some lesser demons. I don't really like the feminine shape of the current Diablo but I'm hoping that's some temporary thing. Which it probably isn't but one can hope lol. But other than that it's a powerful design

    The current design feels to skinny and insect like. If they beefed it up a bit I would like it more.

    The one with wings is the best imo.

    I agree, and even though wings doesn't feel very "diablo" he still looked supremely badass.

    the final diablo looks like a malnourished little ***** who you can snap in 2 like a toothpick.

    Well, Diablo does have a history of looking underwhelming. The first game's Diablo was a buttnaked man-porcupine, the second Diablo was a lizard-puppy, this is just continuing the fine tradition of bizarre designs.

    Early azmodan was so much better. I can't stand his design. :(

    I do like Diablo's final design, though.

    Early Azmodan is a cool design, but not really fitting for something named the Lord of Sin. Its clearly got chest lasers, and what is sinful about chest lasers?

    I think you can see the grittier design attempt of the game(they removed it because it was too much detail for the eyes in motion and confusing?) in the early version of the siege breaker. It's kind of ugly in cool way.

    I wish there was a video of this talk somewhere online. Would be really interested in hearing more in-depth on the thought process, iteration, and such.

    I really like the middle Diablo in this image. What a beast. http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/1958/033eep.jpg

    maybe you should get your eyes checked ?

    just a test for you ; point at the donkey

    its the one to the right.

    attitudes like these are exactly the reason we can't have nice things ... everyone wants something "truly" original ; but they have to already know it to like it ...
