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

Oh wow, schaut echt mächtig aus (:
Ich hab selber nie Diablo gespielt, kenn mich damit also wenig aus ^^
Immer wieder beeindruckend zu sehen wie viele Details du auch in den Hintergrund und die Umgebung steckst.. Wunderschöner Himmel und echt toll wie die Beleuchtungs und Schatteneffekte passen auch perfekt.
Was ich besonders toll find is das Schwert o:
Mystische blaue leuchtende Klinge, einfach epic ^^

Ich wünsch dir noch viel Glück bei dem Wettbewerb, ich denk du hast gute Karten :)

Habe zugegeben auch nur den ersten Teil gespielt und das auch nicht viel^^
Wollte aber schon länger wieder mal bei nem Kontest mitmachen, da hat sich das halt angeboten ;)

Freut mich auf alle Fälle dass es gefällt! Gewinnen werde ich zwar nix, aber gelohnt hat es sich trotzdem :)

NOW THAT IS A FUCKING CRUSADER, i've seen at least five dozen of them pics with just the usual ball with chain and shield, no one ever goes beyond that concept, but this NOW THIS IS EPIC CRUSADER.

Thanks, I really appreciate it! Just looking through the submissions just now made me realize, how colorful and bright mine is in comparison to the rest. Well, wasn't up to make a dark picture this time around, glad not everybody complains about it! :)

the problem to me lies in that everyone makes the usual crusader, with the mace with chain and shield, no one goes beyond that and that annoys me, lack of variety, then out of the blue comes your crusader, using a sword for a difference, and boom, there we go, much better, a crusader who is not using the usual weaponery, at long last, my suggestion to your work when it comes to working with these heroes, always go classic when they use shield, they wield a bad ass and oversized blade or a way too awesome sword that blinds everything, classic heroes inspired these games, their image is nearly a need in RPG's...

Looking through the submissions made me realize how right you are - almost all crusaders look alike, with little to no variation. Mine definitively stands out, especially in terms of colour, which mine has plenty of, whilst most are rather dark. Whether this change is appreciated or not will be seen in time :)

Yup, and that is annoying, the final idea of the contest was, in my humble opinion, to present art that would either, show a maximum level of all the stereotypical images of the heroes or to show a new and fresh appearance of them, breaking the usual frames of the gear they use and the appearance, that is why i came with a plan, my plan was to draw the six heroes in their transformed forms, in such form they look like true nephilim, but then i got realized i can't draw shit, i can't go beyond Paint, ( the program) so i try to inspire others to do said idea, that would be the most powerful paint, the six heroes transformed into their transformation skills, the wrath of the berserker, Akarat's champion, the archon, the spiritual wanderer, the avatar of serenity and the last but not least, the avatar of Vengeance ( in said order they are the t ransformations of: Barbarian, Crusader, Mage, Witch Doctor, Monk and Demon Hunter)
