No More dead Cities by LordDoomhammer No More dead Cities by LordDoomhammer
My submission for the Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls contest ... WOHO, I made it on time! xD
Had just a few days available, so I'm really glad to have got it done. Didn't look other submissions up until now, because I knew I'd never participate if I did. I was right, the other stuff is so amazing O_O
Well, I decided to go with the templar, but take my own spin on him. Took some concept art as reference, took the main features from there, but designed it a little bit differently. Will upload a timelapse vid in a couple of days as well ;)
Didn't want to make a too dark picture, but was aiming to get a mixture between ingame-style and Blizzards awe-inspiring cinematics, without getting it too realistic, wanted to keep the painterly look. Guess most other stuff uploaded is much darker ... well, I didn't want that this time :3

Well, hope you like it! :)
And enjoy the full-view!

It reminds me a bit of the Warcraft Footmen, which is a look I can see easily for the crusader. Nice work!

Have never touched the  Ddiablo series, only played the demo for Diablo 3.

Though I love how did the armor! (Them Pauldrons!) You reall captured the cinematic/epic style of Blizzards aesthetic, also a big fan of knights heh.

Be more confident in your work man! This is some good stuff, badass hero standing over his fallen foes, classic awesomeness, I know you have a chance. =) I really feel like you've captured the look you wanted with this as well so good on you!!

Look forward to the timelaspe vid that should be super cool and good luck with the contest man. :D

Thank you very much! I've only played the first one a bit and that's now over ... 14 years ago! O_O

Yeah, I love knights :D
But in this case it was actually my last resort, as with the little time I had left, I only could manage the "knight", everything else would have taken much longer to finish.

Uh, the timelapse! Almost forgot about it in my current stress, will upload it right away. Thanks for the reminder :D

Welcome LD! Man does time fly huh? I know that too well...

Dang, I'd love to see what you could have done if you had the time!
Still heavy armor is some of the best. :XD:

Haha no problem man, we all forget now and than. =)

Oh and I'm sorry about the contest man! Those pieces we're pretty damn amazing, but still
you tried and its better to try than to not try at all. =)

Lastly, I'd like to apologize for the delay in response, just been a bit busy lately. =/

Don`t worry, as you can see I was delayed as well! But I'm grateful for your response :)

I don`t actually mind not winning at the contest - they were indeed better than me, which gives me all the more reason to move on and keep getting better! :D

All good heh. :XD:

True true! None the less you ended up making one awesome picture though. =)
