Blizzard was doing an art contest for the infamous "Diablo 3" title that's going to be released in about 2 weeks and I thought I'd take a crack at it. Some really fantastic and impressive entries up there so far. Had no idea how vast the Diablo fanbase was.
Was a nice and complex adventure for me that I thought merited a little explanation (and by little I mean not at all.)
So if you're interested here's a link to the tutorial I wrote up that walks you through my process: http://iisketchii.deviantart.com/art/Rain-Dance-Tutorial-299619449
Just got an e.mail from Blizzard last night on the contest results...my piece was a grand prize winner!!
This is insane!! Big thanks to the Blizzard team and all you guys for your kind words. Means a lot to me. Now all I gotta do is find a job....
P.S. don't forget to check out the winners page. Some amazing talent up there: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/5825327/Portrait_of_a_Champion_Winners-5_18_2012#blog . Big congrats to everyone involved!
