Welcome friends to the latest installment of the Diablo Fan Art Watch. This week Blizzard posted on their blog with another Fan Creation of the Week. This time its about 3D character art by artist Marie-Michelle Pepin.
Sanctuary is full of heroes and they deserve to be honored. Thankfully for us, there are talented artists who are up to the challenge of immortalizing these champions through exceptionally-detailed and life-like works of art.
This week’s community spotlight shines brightly on talented fan artist Marie-Michelle Pepin and her incredible Diablo III 3D character art. Marie-Michelle has sculpted and painted some astounding renders of both the Witch Doctor and Monk. Marie-Michelle shared with us a number fantastic images of Witch Doctor model and all the extraordinary care she put into crafting this powerful spiritual warrior.
Marie-Michelle’s monk model is just as impressive! You can find the final painted 3D model, as well as the specular-normal mapped version, wire-frame version, and high-resolution sculpt of her Monk below. Her DeviantArt gallery also contains further images of her process on these two stalwart heroes.
