Diablo 3: Monk by Shockowaffel Diablo 3: Monk by Shockowaffel
This is my entry for the Diablo 3 fanart contest by Blizzard.
...well, not exactly this. I sent in what I had right before the deadline and finished it later.
It's a bit sad that I cannot sent in this (definetely better) piece, but I worked on this to improve my own artistic skills, not to win a contest.

Does the picture even need an explanation?
Diablo 3, the monk. If I had the game, I would propably play one. (or a barbarian)
I think the spell is called "Inner Sanctuary".

You might also be interested in my other works, like the Warcraft Ogre Monk:

You're most welcome. I've been browsing through Diablo 3 monk fan art, and of all of the depictions this is by far my favourite! You really brought the character to life :)

The 1st version of it looks like an evil monk. Still AWEsome anyway. ;P

Taking a look at other changes it's fair to say that you were truly improving it step by step to make it great as it is now. :clap:

Nah, demonhunter feel like they would not really be my style.
Even in WoW I thought hunters and rogues were the least interesting classes.
