if only they could see me now! by nebezial if only they could see me now! by nebezial
for anyone confused as to how is this preparing for battle.. everyone who play diablo knows ... THIS IS THE ONLY WAY YOU PREPARE FOR BATTLE! XD
you kill these buggers over and over and over and over again! that is the only preparation we diablo players know of! XD

ahem...okay so maybe playing an archon wizard may have been my preferred way of dealing with the game XD

i mean you burn everything WITH YOUR EYES!!!!

on a spearate note.. should have called my wizzie kal-el XD

anyhoo this is pretty much my submission, i may update it over time before the deadline as  this has tired my eyes out and i need some rest from it

made me think of Evil-Lyn finally taking out Skeletor & becoming the Supreme Mistress of Evil on Eternia.

I don't know why this reminds me of the Evil Queen, lol.

She has a bit of a Rita Repulsa vibe to her.

I kinda fangasmed when I recognized female Wizzy's voice to be that of Grey Delisle, Actress and Voice Actress of AtlA's Azula...

Very good painting but somehow whenever i look at her i she reminds me of Evil Lyn from He-man.
nebezial Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2014
one of my transmogs in the game was inspired by exactly that XD

YUP! Which reminds me... I need to load up 1 & 2. I never did finish Diablo. Kept getting my butt kicked around sub level 11 or 12... =( A friend gave me the hero editor for Diablo 2. I have the strategy guide for 3, but have yet to buy to game. We won't even discuss how far behind I am on StarCraft... =P

barbarian!  That's how I stay prepared.  Wizard is just to much power for me to handle lol.....this is a great piece I love it.  "How you like me now Big-D" :-)
CodeXCDM Featured By Owner May 4, 2014
You know that powered up state Skeletor has in the old 80's movie? It's as if Evil-Lyn went and modified the armor for herself... bit more colorful though.

Cheesy as the film was... that look was pretty bad ass. Same goes for the pic, of course.

(I know it was meant to be D3 art... but yea...)

First time i looked at this i saw Evil-Lyn from the old he-man cartoons from my childhood.
TNHawke Featured By Owner May 3, 2014
Not being particularly familiar with Diablo...  from the Thumbnail, I thought it was Snow White's Evil Queen teaming up with the Balrog.  Which was a scary enough prospect, but then, upon clicking on it, before reading the description, I thought it was said queen having defeated the Balrog, which would make her a whole new level of scary!

oh dear, I played through it twice with a friend (me going Monk, she being Wizard) and she is STILL using those fucking annoying catchphrases of her wizzie while I still can't get rid of that fake russian accented "I'm out of Spirit" (cause I always were. always.)
aaaanyway, I love love LOVE the crown! one of my favourite accessories and the color clash or orange-red and archon-purple is beautiful! :)

After seeing your pic, I started to wonder what I love most of it and think it would make it win this contest, and what not. If you allow me, I am intersted on writing a rather long (perhaps not so long) critique:
Dunno if I am gonna make it right, I am seriosuly just putting my ideas as they come to my mind here.

Of course, its greates value is merely your awesome drawing skills: the girl is beautifully drawn, the weapon looks awesome, and that monster (yay, ballrog!) looks great. And the textures are simply gorgeous, the energy arcs channeling through the weapon and that woman clothes, and all the fire coming from the monster is just... man you are awesome with phtoshop.

But... I feel you could do a ten times more epic image. On epic I mean an image that adds a tremendous feeling of depth and movement on the scene. I mean, with a guy of your skills, I hope for an image that really boils my blood with rage and adrenaline, an urge to totally start a bloodbath on that videogame, filled with adrenaline.

Probably an scene that has a sensation of overwhelming-ness, perhaps of a background that feels huge (note that I said "feels", I am not expceting you to draw a backgound of 30x30 meters, I know you have a life and you cant waste your time on that xD. But you probably know better than me a bunch of tricks to make a background feel like having a huge depth), or an scene with enemies that really feels like a battle in progress (using things like twsing the camera instead of having it aligned… or adding blur can add a lot). But seriously, you definetly know more about this than me, you are the expert.

I have seen a bunch of images on DA trying to get a better idea of what I am trying to say. Just trying to sum up, what I am trying to say is that I think you could make a picture that would have EPIC wrote all over the place.

That being said, I am not really in position to critique as a guy who barely knows how to draw, and even less is an artist critisist.

I would continue, but i think this is already enough of a long comment for you to read on my poor english. Not gonna bother you with even a longer comment.
nebezial Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2014
nah trust me i know all that.. in all honesty compositionwise i halfassed it at best, half way in it became more about testing stuff than making a good piece...

on the bright side tho i learned a few nifty things from it and anytime one can say that ... it has been a good experience :)
sebaselciclon Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah. I have to admit it was rather obvious you already knew that. sorry for trying to act like I can teach you something

What? new ways to use the brushes? cause it defiently looks like you experimented a lot to get those textures (specially on the lighting arcs on that woman and the fire of that balrog thing xD).
nebezial Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014
no worries :) and yeah some new fun ways of texturing and enritching color, which after i work out to my satisfaction i'll make a video how i do it :)
johnstonpaul Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2014

AthemysLunae Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I have a question: do you invented her dress or you copied an existing set?
I know the weapon but i am curious for the dress because i am tempted to invent my witch doctor armor set (mask, torso and co) but i don't know is it ok or not.. (her weapon and mojo are from the game, instead)

nebezial Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014
it's a tal rasha armor, i pretty much straight up copied my own game sorceress  for this one
