Diablo III T-shirt Design Contest

Hello, my friend.
Stay awhile and listen…

Design by Humans is looking for some heroic Humans – or perhaps Demon Hunters or Monks – to design truly worthy T-shirts inspired by Blizzard's Action RPG masterpiece, Diablo III. Design By Humans and its community are a force to be reckoned with in the t-shirt design world, so we're thrilled to be partnering with Blizzard Entertainment, an absolute juggernaut in the video game design world. Combine these two forces, and we expect to see some truly extraordinary shirt designs.

This Is Your Canvas, Create An Epic Diablo III T-Shirt

This Is Your Canvas, Create An Epic Diablo III T-Shirt

By entering, you're giving yourself the chance to have your work seen by the creative minds at Blizzard Entertainment, the very people behind some of the greatest video game titles of the last 20 years. Not to mention reviewed by Design By Humans and it's global community.

Together, we're sending you on a quest: design a t-shirt using characters from Diablo III, and then pit them against each other in a massive art contest for a combined $12,500 in cash and additional prizes. Your quest is somewhat less dangerous than defeating the Prime Evils. No need to fight Mephisto – but feel free to incorporate him into your design.

In fact, you can incorporate any of fifteen character designs from the Diablo Universe listed below.

Here’s my almost finished work, the full image and it’s placement
The only thing is that when I resize it to 640 × 480 the quality of the image drops down a lot. I guess I’ll submit it like that and see if it gets approved or not

AHHH GOT IT! Thanks Luneder.

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

@Anhle819: like using an image tag and posting the image url into the tag that you have uploaded on another site you use the exclamation point instead on each end. below the text box isn’t links but an example of the commands used to get the desired outcome of what you want to do.

Resubmitted my design lets see if it makes it through this time. Had to make some minor changes based on the review I got back such as Azmodans nipple rings weren’t shinny enough (nipple ring fetish?), And the background effect was a bit overwhelming.

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

@hhgggggg: We all have Photoshop or similar that allows us to place the image where there are only pixels such as a layer clipping mask since the the stock shirts are either png or already separated into layers for Photoshop use.

hhgggggg hhgggggg Artist from United States

Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

Since we have added new characters to the contest after the contest had began to include the recently announced expansion Diablo III: Reaper of Souls characters Crusader, Fallen and Malthael, Angel of Death we’re extending the contest submission deadline to September 13th, 2013. This means you have an extra week to design, fine tune and get your submissions in.

Good luck to all!

@Luneder – You will be contacted via email with either an approval or rejection email. In the rejection email you will have a reason why it was rejected or a short list of revisions requested by Design By Humans & Blizzard.

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

since I am still a bit new to this how will I be contacted in the event my submission is denied? I submitted my t-shirt design Saturday night and have yet to receive any feedback other than the e-mail saying that it had been submitted successfully.
