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.

For anyone wanting to add a little excitement to their day I recommend you go watch the Opening Cinematic to the new Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls expansion. He’s baaack!

@daleconcepts Speed painting is fine but be aware of the color restrictions in play here too.

jrtoyman jrtoyman Artist from Quezon City, Philippines

Had just submitted mine…..lots of talent here so just hoping…...good luck to all who will join. :-)

daleconcepts daleconcepts Artist from Philippines

cool.. thanks wotto… I’m talking bout speed painting actually .. some of us are not good with that technique , well as what you said we can try different alt methods to
incorporate our own style on diablo characters… excited to see what everyone can do bout this theme.

jshoemake15 jshoemake15 Artist from United States

not a lot to go off of on this guy but I’m takin a crack at malthael

wotto wotto Artist from CA, United States

@daleconcepts – I am not sure what techniques you are referring to specifically but the teams would like to see drawn materials. You can try many alternative styles and I encourage people to try something a bit different. We don’t want all the winners to look the same. You get 3 tries at this so if you have the time and skill I say bring on some alternative methods.

daleconcepts daleconcepts Artist from Philippines

Hey guys is it ok to try other design style ? I noticed that diablo characters are purely made from digital painting … some of us are not good with that technique
will it be still acceptable to try other own designing methods? like what we used to do in submitting on regular subs.. ??

N9NE N9NE Artist from United States

Hi guys this is my concept so far. Any critics? Also may I use more than 4 colors?

Inked Inked Staff: Community Manager from California, United States

@onethousand: Submissions can be black and white if that is the design the artist is going for. There is no requirement to utilize any color.

onethousand onethousand Human from Canada

Hey, I have a design question. Do the designs have to be coloured or can they have a more black and white/traditional art/drawing type look to them?

wotto wotto Artist from CA, United States

Also folks, I made a fan art resource page for inspiration. if you are struggling to get inspired look HERE

wotto wotto Artist from CA, United States

Hi Cetus, I would say yes but stay true to the character, obviously Blizzard want the character to be instantly recognizable but a few twists won’t hurt.

cetus cetus Artist from Manila, Philippines

hi wotto, can i ask you something about the character design, is it ok for us to tweak a characters physique beyond that of the original/given references? thank you in advance.

wotto wotto Artist from CA, United States

@Silent1fd You can use more than one character but one should stand out as a focal point. Two battling characters would be fine or similar.

jshoemake15 jshoemake15 Artist from United States

here it is on the shirt… what do you guys think?

Silent1fd Silent1fd Artist from United States

Is the contest limited to one character?

7sixes 7sixes Artist from Minnesota, United States

Damn your guys’ are good…afraid to finish mine…
