Diablo 2 Fanart by Sorrow-Mcgee Diablo 2 Fanart by Sorrow-Mcgee
My favorite character in Diablo 2 was, ofcourse, the Necromancer. When playing the character, should I ever feel epic, this is how I felt. This was originally developed for the Blizzard Fan Art contest but I never finished.

Looks like the rogue is using Windforce. Is the necromancer casting decrepify?

Whew!  Month later and i remember to check this thing.  Yes, the rogue mercenary is using Windforce in its classical, Diablo I, form.  Decrepify is a good notion, but for the most part I just did what I did cause it looks cool.  Though it's a definitely a curse of some variety as that's how I played necromancer.  Summons and curses only, with some corpse explosion goodness here and there.

Amazing piece of art...and so many details! The golem looks really great...but best of all the Necro. He's also my fav character.

Thanks!  Glad you like my illustration.  You didn't ever happen to play Diablo3 did you?

You're welcome.:):)
I played Diablo 3 with the witch doctor once...but never have never tried another char. It's a very nice game, but doesn't have the addictive gameplay as Diablo 1 or Diablo2 (with LoD). At least for me.

Yeh, I think a lot of people had that feeling.  To me D3 felt very much like an 'arcade' experience.

you have actually put into image exactly what you described. i would clap you but you wouldnt hear hahaha

i admire that kind of talent, i adore Diablo 2 and the rest of the series. that actually gives some of the diablo feeling toward the viewer

Good job friend, i wish you would have made some other Diablo paintings!

You captured the emotions of the characters beautifully. Even though he's about to fall, there's something so confident about the Necromancer's posture. Like he's got 0 F...ks to give

But of course.  He's a Necromancer.  He's got things under control.  Though, his rogue mercenary is not quite as confident.

It does doesn't.  I'm trying to figure out why I don't draw more awesome stuff like this.  Rather puzzling.

Whoa. I am just blown away by this piece. It has everything: great line work, great details (like those potions hanging from his belt, the crumbling earth, the skulls in the legs of the golem) and the coloring is phenomenal! I especially love the eerie glow radiating off the necromancer and his skull. And holy crap, the muscle definition in the demon is beautifully rendered. I love everything about this. I don't know how I haven't seen it before. It. is. AMAZING.

Thanks! I posted this a little around a year ago, I think. I've mostly moved on to traditional media and sculpture in the mean time and haven't been able to post any of my more recent works as I have lost my camera! But, I fully intend to return to digital media in the not-too-distant future to create more works like this one. Despite my late inactivity on DeviantArt, this illustration continues to draw attention, which is really encouraging. And whats more, its unfinished! So thanks again!

This is some amazing work, My fav character was and still is my level 82 summoning Necromancer. After Christmas 2012 im hoping to Cosplay a Compleatly Decked out Necromancer in London - might even get a few people to do skeleton worriers.

Thanks! Necromancer was my favorite too. Just curses and summons, as well as the occasional corpse explosion! This picture exemplifies how I played him perfectly.

Definitely see if you can get yourself some people to dress up as skele's! No necro is complete without his minions.

Lol! No, she's noting him about to fall off. Guess I could've composed that better.

I submitted it to the contest anyways even though it wasn't finished, but of course didn't win anything and I suppose they could tell it wasn't finished so it didn't even make honorable mentions.
