Judge's Comments

The composition of this piece powerfully illustrates the strength of the Barbarian, at the same time the execution of the lighting and mood really sets this piece apart! Every little detail cleverly tells a story, while focusing on the epic quest the Barbarian is about to embark upon!

Judge's Comments

This piece has such a strong overall visual impact and mood, and strikingly captures the cusp of an epic battle about to be waged between the forces of good versus evil! Both the composition and focal area give this piece such presence!

  • $1,000 USD
  • Signed boxed copy of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Collector's Edition

Judge's Comments

This painting really gives such a powerful sense of the Monk's history and character. The lighting is beautifully executed and reinforces the focal area to capture a moment in time, with so many great little design touches throughout!



In the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Fan Art Contest, we challenged you to create original artwork showing one or more central figures getting ready for the coming conflict against Malthael.  Christian Lichtner, Art Director for Diablo III, commented on each of the winning entries, with the grand prize winner getting a 2-night trip to visit Blizzard HQ in California! See the winners!

I was trying to enter this contest, but time slipped away from me.  Not only that, but I was trying to create a piece on the computer with my tablet which I just have not mastered yet.  I wanted to give this my all and I'm sad I fell short.  In the end, I would have not been able to compete with these winners.  These pieces are incredible!  Congrats everyone!

well, these people won and with right to, and if you didn't win its your fault, you may have spent more time on something, but its still not as good, you need to suck it up and realize that if you want to improve and win someday then you need to take responsibility and work to improve. And no, your art is far from as good as these.
