Diablo III Fan Art Contest Winners

Wed Apr 2, 2014, 12:12 PM

In the Diablo III Reaper of Souls Fan Art Contest, we asked you to join the crusade against death itself by portraying the Heroes of Sanctuary or Malthael preparing for their coming conflict. Christian Lichtner, Art Director of Diablo III, reviewed and considered each of the twenty-five semi-finalists and picked three winners who best prepared their Diablo characters.

Read Christian's comments on each winning artwork below, and check out the winning deviations for yourself! Each winner is taking home some amazing prizes, and the grand prize winner will get a two-night trip to Blizzard Headquarters in Irvine, California! Congratulations winners, and thank you to everyone who participated!

  • 8,000 deviantART Points

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!

TheRafa has won

  • A framed print of the 2nd place entry signed to the artist by the Diablo III Creative Team
  • $3,000 USD
  • Signed boxed copy of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Collector's Edition
  • 4,000 deviantART Points
  • 6-month Premium Membership to deviantART.com

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!

nixell has won

  • A framed print of the 3rd place entry signed to the artist by the Diablo III Creative Team
  • $1,000 USD
  • Signed boxed copy of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Collector's Edition
  • 4,000 deviantART Points
  • 6-month Premium Membership to deviantART.com

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.

hah, i knew it was inevitable to get a haughty and stuck up response, i know my art isn't superior, or even good, but lucky for me, i can learn from my mistakes. You call my universe "simple and pathetic", when it is I who can look out upon a vast world, and see both the flaws and the strengths, while you look out and see a haze, but with yourself on a pedestal. A pathetic way to live, feeling like your on top of others, like others don't matter, like others universes are "simple." I would feel bad for you, then again your the one that made yourself like this, so I would rather put my time to something worth while. Also, your gallery shows that your are good, the gallery of the ones who won show that they are better.

i find it ironic how you talk of being superior in art when i only do casual art and mainly write which i have stopped for the most part because i do programming, you know, something i can live off of. also, i'm 13, it would only figure that i don't have over 15 years of experience. it comical how much you say you are superior to me, but hey, gotta feed that ego right? If you even had any friends at one point, i'm sure your ego and arrogance drove them away, leaving you nothing but making lengthy arguments to people on the other side of a screen, and having those arguments shot down by something much smaller then yours. I feel bad for you, i really do, but you obviously are to "superior" fro any help you may need.

your picture sucks, it has way too many details and beacause of that isn't really suited for this contest. Moreover due to that artstyle it looks like it's made in 90's. Furthermore, you really seem pathetic (and your grammar kinda sucks), you think you're superior to others but in reality even a 13 year old is more mature than you. I dont even know why i bothered writing all of this -.-

Looks so generic and boring. That is something the people at Blizzard would do. Second place is the best one. I knew they would chose something they would already do. No individuality.
