Malthael, The Angel of Death, has manifested in the mortal realm of Sanctuary with a deadly new purpose: to steal the Black Soulstone and bend its infernal power to his will.

Prepare yourself! Show one or more central figures getting ready for the coming conflict against Malthael. You may choose figures from the six heroes of Sanctuary or even Malthael himself!

We've provided a trove of images and supplies of references to assist in your task.

View the trailer for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, then go to the Asset Page to learn about the game and the characters. You may use as reference but not actually duplicate visual materials provided on the Asset Page.

Create an original artwork inspired by Diablo III in the form of a portrait or an illustration showing a central figure(s) from one of the six classes of Heroes of Sanctuary or of Malthael preparing for the coming conflict. You may use any visual medium excluding cosplay, photographs, or moving images. Photographs of an entry made in another medium are acceptable.
