Diablo 3 - Monk by DeivCalviz Diablo 3 - Monk by DeivCalviz
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: [link]

My son in law and I would love to make his Diablo 3 Monk cosplay based off your artwork.  We both love the detail you gave to the armor as well as the color palette you used.  He's hoping to wear it to BlizzCon 2014  in a few weeks.  We'll send you pictures if we manage to get it done in time and we'll credit your art as the inspiration for his costume.  Beautiful work!

Let no man tell you that you cannot draw; the details on this, the flow of his aura and the spread of his robes...beautiful.

And, since you're curious, the Monk is my favorite, because his survivability is greater than my Wizard (sad but true).

Undeniably awesome, the piece is wonderful! I won't bore you with the details, but I must admit, seeing the Monk in the midst of combat, surrounded by a very complimenting background and selection of enemies in such detail is superb. Particularly like how the Monk himself is wounded, gives a sense that despite his power, he is isn't invincible. Although, he doesn't need to be, he'll simply slaughter them all in return. Great work DeivCalviz, I'll be checking out the others after seeing this piece.
