    Wizard Fan Art

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm getting tired of waiting for updates on D3! For goodness sakes, Blizzard! Warhammer Online is putting you to shame!

    If you're tired of waiting too, maybe this will help ease the hunger pains. I've been working on a painting off and on for the last month. I'm still not finished, but here's a little teaser for everyone to enjoy. I hope to get it done by the end of this month, but that will depend on how much time I have between all the other life obligations I have.

    This is just a teaser snippet of a larger piece. Colors aren't final -anything can change.

    Enjoy, and chew slowly! :grin:

    Edited: 2/27/11: Added the final version here for easier viewing.

    Oh, I love it!

    You should upload it to the gallery!

    I'm putting this in the next Forum Watch, so I hope you don;t mind me uploading it to the Diii.net gallery, and changing the uploader name to yours :)

    Please upload any larger ones if you have! Water marks/signatures are ofc ok.

    Gosh, Leord, thanks!

    ;) -It may be cruel, but I don't plan on revealing any more of it until it's done. (or close to done. We'll see . . .)

    Remember, chew slowly! We don't know how long we'll have to go before we get more official art.

    Thanks, Holyknight3000!

    I guess we're kind of like bears. We come out of hibernation when we're hungry (maybe a little angry, too). ;):rant:

    Leord: You gobbled, didn't you? Patience . . . :)

    Re: Wizard Fan Art

    Hi all,

    Turns out I didn't have much time to paint this week, but I wanted to post and say that it's still on the menu.

    Between looking for work and hustling for freelance, I've been pretty busy.

    Re: Wizard Fan Art

    I'm getting closer to finishing it!

    I contemplated posting a bigger snippet, but I'm too insecure! I envy you other guys who are posting your pictures as you work on them. Hats off to you and I'm glad to see more artists posting their work!

    Maybe in my next piece I'll try something different and include more progress posts from the start. I could use some 'loosening up' in public.

    This painting has turned into somewhat of a monster. I didn't plan on it taking so long -or being so complex of a composition. Fortunately, it's getting close.

    Thanks for creating this site and updating it regularly! This is my way of showing appreciation.​

    That's really cool!

    Ever thought about making a Diablo Wikipedia entry for it? Like Holyknight3000 has one...

    Thanks, GoldenBird!

    Leord, I don't know what I'd do with a WIKI page. :scratchhead:
    Holyknight3000 could probably pump out 20-30 wallpapers in the time it takes me to create one image! :)


    If you're suggesting step by step explanations of my creation process, it might be better to just have question and answer sessions with anyone while I post images.
    I have no problem with that, and especially encourage anyone wanting to improve their art skills or whatever.
    I'd just rather be painting.



    -However, looking ahead, I am thinking of creating albums (similar to what Delowyn has done). -to keep wip versions out of the way of the general fan galleries.

    Re: Wizard Fan Art

    Well Shack if you wanted a wiki page me and Leord could set one up for you and could update it when you created new works, kinda like what i do. I make my new works do some stuff on the wiki and upload a lower quality image to the wiki but have the image link to the gallery.

    Let me know what you think. We could get you and other artists set up easy.

    You guys are too kind!

    Seriously though, I'm fine with how things are right now. Let me get a couple more paintings under my belt first, and then maybe I'll decide to go that way.

    Small bump. I've fixed the links to the image so they're viewable again.
