Diablo 3 - Barbarian

Finally! After sooo long, here are some fresh stuff!

I actually started these for a small contest by Blizzard Entertainment for Diablo 3 but I wasn't able to finish them and only entered two. Then I realized the potential in doing high quality D3 fanart for publicity. Not only was it for good press but would also serve as a good practice for me. Then, eventually, it turned into this 3 month beast of a personal project. I actually started mid-April and finished just two days ago working on these on and off after my day-job.

My art direction was like this because I wanted a glamour/fashion/action type of full body portraits. I wanted to stay close to the original designs while giving it a little twist. Also, since Diablo 3 is a top-down type of game, seeing action and skills up close would be very interesting for the target audience. Although it was very fun to do, I actually got burnt out just because it took soo long to finish. (blame my busy day-job haha) Still, I got what I wanted and learned a ton about composition, posing, anatomy, lighting, armor designs, and most importantly, about being PATIENT and STICKING to your plan to the end.

ALSO, I have video processes of these here! www.youtube.com/user/deivcalvi…

Savage and brutal, the mere design and arrangement of the piece suggests nothing other than the Barbarian himself will survive, no surprise there. Regarding the art itself, this is certainly a tie with the monk for the best piece, especially given the capturing of the wrath of the character, the complimenting selection of background, suitable foes and of course the superb quality of the piece. Well done once again, keep up the great work DeivCalviz.
