Fan Art Watch #11

Posted 28 Aug 2009 by


It’s been a very busy week since last weekend and Blizzcon 2009. We’ve had many artists show off their skills in the Blizzcon Fan Art Contest and now it’s time to show off some of those pieces.

  • First up this week we have Vortexh showing off his Blizzcon 09 Fanart of DiabloWikiDiablo standing on hundreds of skulls and bones with ice behind him and a pentagram in the background behind it all.
  • Next up is Inkarnus with his entry for the contest with his huge image of Diablo Farming Brave Souls showing diablo waiting at an entrance-way for a party that shows the witchdoctor and 4 other heroes from d2.
  • Also before DiabloWikiBlizzcon this year Rainyia showed us her Mistress of Pain costume, and during Blizzcon at the Costume Contest we saw many amazing costumes. But she prevailed and won the contest! Congratulations Rainiya!
  • Lastly this week I would like to extend some congratulations to Defiledvisions for winning the Blizzard Fan Art Contest from DiabloWikiBlizzCon 2009 with his art piece The Wanderer. His is shown below, to the right.

For all the images, remember they also have a larger version, so click the images.
