Early Diablo 3 concepts

Here are a few pieces that have been shown at recent Blizzcons that I never got around to posting.
Barbarian sketches and a badguy concept from about...6 years ago!


  1. Thanks for posting these! That last one is wild. I'm hard pressed to think of what monstrous attribute he'd be missing. Skull face, fangs, claws, scales, multiple arms, spines, fire, horns . . .
    He seems to have plenty enough and some to share as well.

  2. Haha! They told me to paint out the cigar and mustache. I reluctantly did so.

  3. If you don't like 4-armed snake demonss with spears, who are actually on fire... then Diablo 3 isn't the game for you.

  4. love the tecnique you use in the barbarian skecht :) one of my favorites.

  5. did you know that the last photo "bad guy" is actually part of the GDC 2012 Blizzard presentation at

    Early concept art for Diablo it claims. Good work man.

  6. Thanks, Dave! Having a part in creating Diablo was pretty freaking awesome.
