Diablo Fan Art Watch #183: Silk Art

Posted 6 Mar 2013 by

  

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 a website tool called Silk, and blizzard shared with the community seven awesome works.


The colors and shapes of the High Heavens ebb and flow with fragile energy that can be difficult for even the most skilled painter to capture, no less do justice to. And oh, the wings of the Archangels… their wings produce the most astounding light that shimmers and shifts like bright liquid smoke. It is unlike anything you’ve ever seen on the mortal realm.

Last week, we challenged the Diablo III community to create art using an online tool called Silk, with its spectral brush-strokes seemingly summoned straight from the High Heavens.

Players across Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit took this challenge in stride, producing dozens upon dozens of images that illustrated everything from familiar angelic faces from Diablo lore to demons, monsters, and heroic Nephalem in action. Here are some of our favorites. Make sure to click the images below so that you can watch the creation of each of these pieces in real time!

Art By: afragturedmind, Andrea Marrocu, Tobias Major,
Viktor Henriksson (images:#4 & #7), Robert Hymans, and Brokenmind.
