    Post Hoc WIP of my 2010 Blizzcon Fanart entry

    I just thought I'd post a few of my 'in progress' shots of this piece since I wasn't able/allowed to publicly display the entry untill after they announced the contest winners.

    This piece of Diablo 2 fan art was inspired by the low level item set 'Milabrega's Regalia'. I wondered who Milabrega was and how his armor got into the hands of the forces of evil. This image depicts the last battle fought by the paladin Milabrega. After his untimely demise at the hands of the drowned carcasses of the Great Marsh his regalia was greedily pilfered by the forces of evil. It may yet find it's way into the hands of Sanctuary's would be saviors.

    I still don't actually know who won, but I know they were supposed to announce them yesterday. I haven't gotten any emails or anything so I can assume it wasn't me.

    The final can be found in my Finally Finished thread.

    Just something that I noticed immediately...the shield should extend past the guy's grip. Shields are meant to protect the whole arm, so it wouldn't do to have it possible to cut his fist off, right? The fist is usually nestled comfortably (well not really because shields are uncomfortable as f***) near the middle of the width.

    Thanks RyerOrdStar. While I don't intend to go back and do any more work to this particular piece, there are two persons with shields in my current WIP, so I will certainly keep that in mind so I don't make that silly mistake again.

    Good eye! I was actually the reference for all of the figures. After I did the initial thumbnail I had my wife do a little photo shoot with me acting out the various poses. I emulated the lighting for the reference with an old lamp on a chair.
