June 21, 2012 Diablo III Barbarian – WIP 6 Posted In: Uncategorized


Okay, so I think I’m satisfied with where the Barbarian is at this point, so it’s time to move on to really resolving and adding to the peripheral elements. I re-drew the imp and adjusted his lighting & values. I think this one is a lot more successful. I also added lava and a stream of hellspawn or whatever coming out of Mount Arreat. I may keep one and ditch the other. At any rate, it needs just a few more denizens populating the foreground to make it look like he’s really leaping into a horde.

My art materials that I shipped back home from the IMC just arrived today, so that means I can get back to work on my oil painting! Yeah, I think I should just go ahead and sell my TV, XBox, PS3…

    Dude. Would It not be cool to have that imp have a barbarian shaped cast shadow on him? I dont know how that would work with the lighting scheme that you have here but I would think about it.

    that's my 2 cents. Reply

    Oh, damn! That's a fantastic idea. I think the light is hitting him at the right angle for that; I'll try a diagonal shadow border across the imp's right shoulder across the chest. Thanks Sean! Reply

    In the spirit of friendly critique, I would like to suggest that the fur trim on the left side's boot be pushed back in darkness a little. Right now it's a tangent with the right side boot, which kind of looks like he had fur trousers that accidentally dropped to his knees mid-charge, exposing his underwear. Or maybe it's that his loincloth? is too pearly white compared to the rest of his outfit. That's the only thing that really bugs me. I know this is probably waaay out but I thought you might want to know even if it's a random and horrible sounding opinion, for future reference or something. Hope you don't take offence! Reply
