Diablo III - Fan Art Contest

Fri Feb 14, 2014, 10:22 AM

Malthael, The Angel of Death, has manifested in the mortal realm of Sanctuary with a deadly new purpose: to steal the Black Soulstone and bend its infernal power to his will.

Prepare yourself! Show one or more central figures getting ready for the coming conflict against Malthael. You may choose figures from the six heroes of Sanctuary or even Malthael himself!

We've provided a trove of images and supplies of references to assist in your task.

View the trailer for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, then go to the Asset Page to learn about the game and the characters. You may use as reference but not actually duplicate visual materials provided on the Asset Page.

Create an original artwork inspired by Diablo III in the form of a portrait or an illustration showing a central figure(s) from one of the six classes of Heroes of Sanctuary or of Malthael preparing for the coming conflict. You may use any visual medium excluding cosplay, photographs, or moving images. Photographs of an entry made in another medium are acceptable.

I'm a little confused. In the official rules under Entrants right, 6th bullet, it states that the entrants cannot use their work for momentary gain without the approval of the sponsor. Is this talking about all entries submitted and not just the ones who win the contest? To me, it sounds like Blizzard is getting partial rights to hundreds of pictures for free.

I won 2nd place in the insidious contest, and in that, the only works that need permission for monetary gain are those entrants who win, and accept the prizes.

Hey!
Such a major and entertaining contest, congrats! It looks impossible to gaze all of them. Pretty please share the amount of attendants after contest is over, it would be interesting to know.
I have a little question for all of you. Did you ever come by a Leah depiction amongst pieces? Somewhere in the composition? Or is it just me giving creadits to her?  :)

All the best and good luck to everyone!
