Fan Art Watch #1

Posted 26 Sep 2008 by

We’ve been running weekly wallpaper posts for a couple of months now, and the gallery is flourishing. We’re going to start doing the same for fanart, starting… today! The Fan Art gallery can be seen here, and it houses hundreds of pieces, going all the way back to the pre-D2 days. Some of the more recent, D3-inspired pieces include:

[LIST]
[*]Lore submitted three pieces, reimagining classic character classes as their female versions might look in Diablo III. There’s a Warrior, Ranger, and a Necromancer.

[*]RosTo’s contributed an amusing cartoon of a strange visitor to the Secret Cow Level.

[*]Vortexh’s amazing, Godzilla-like Diablo is a painting of a Paladin having a very bad day.

[*]Cowguin’s Diablo/Tyrael mashup, which was even cited by D3 CM Bashiok in a recent forum post.
[*]And there were also 48 pieces original works, of varying seriousness, submitted to our recent Swords fan art contest.

With submitted fan art or wallpapers, the artists’ only payment is your feedback. (Well, other than our occasional contests.) If you see a piece you like, add a comment to let the artist know their efforts were appreciated.  You can also visit our Fan Creations forum, to chat about fan-made art, music, and more.
