I've been playing Diablo for the past 17 years – since the original's launch! – and it wouldn't be a stretch to say that it is a vital cornerstone of not only my identity, but that of my community of friends. Together, we've logged literally thousands of hours diligently exorcising all manner of Sanctuary's bad eggs. Diablo has over the years influenced everything from our creative endeavours to our slang, and it has always been a way for us to stay in touch, wherever we may be in our lives.

It's this sense of community which the Diablo franchise engenders that I wanted to reflect in this piece. With Reaper of Souls barely a week away, how else would you properly prepare for the conflict but by logging onto the forum or checking up on the wikis to plan your attack? Together, we're stronger.

Then again, maybe they're just checking their Facetomes. Whatever.

I also included several references and in-jokes waiting to be found by long-time fans of the franchise. Full view, and see if you can spot them all!

Good luck to everyone who entered the contest, and I'll see you in Westmarch!

Definitely drawn by a fan. The auction house closing parchment was a nice touch. Great job!

You should win :) From semi-finalists your concept is most "fresh"

I figured there were enough scowling, axe-wielding barbarians and badass-posing demon hunters already, so decided to do something different! Glad you dig it!

I'm so happy that you decided to draw something different then everybody else, most of the art is about the same, nothing special about it, yours truly stands out, i wish you luck, you deserve to win 1st ;)
