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.

ArthemysLunae ArthemysLunae Artist from Milano, Italy

Ok i’m not fifth…..congratulation DrSpazmo! Great Work!

Now i’m anxious to know the other 4 winners!! One per day…why? xD The suspance is killing me!!
But after we know all the big 5 when will we know the others from 6th to 20th? And the winners of the Video Contest? :)

Andrezao Andrezao Artist from Paraná, Brazil

DrSpazmo is the 5th?
Where is this information?

ArthemysLunae ArthemysLunae Artist from Milano, Italy

Is in the home page of Design by Human web site :)

larios larios Artist from Attica, Greece

So according to the two out of three winners so far… number 1 will be Ruthless by silentOp with TamplierPainter at the 2nd position?! Xmmmm!!!!!

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

5th and 4th I can see, 3rd not so much, guess that is where the judge’s personal taste comes in.

larios larios Artist from Attica, Greece

Unfortunately the 3rd was a lost coin for most people! So we have 2 winners from United States and 2 from Philippines! I wonder if the fifth one is going to be from Russia?

Andrezao Andrezao Artist from Paraná, Brazil

5th, 4th is ok.
The 3th is friend of some judge or something..

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

First is probably going to be a piece with diablo on it and there are 5 or so of them that come to mind that are top quality. And I agree with Andrezao’s comment, 3rd had to be a judges friend because even after seeing it I don’t even think it is top 20, there are way too many that are better than it.

ArthemysLunae ArthemysLunae Artist from Milano, Italy

I am curious to know when the others (from 6th to 20th) will be said and when the winner of the video contest will be choose.
I like the design of the 3rd, but i agree with you. There are others better than that but i don’think he’s judges friend or something.

Sparadokos Sparadokos Artist from Cebu City, Philippines

Common guys! everyone deserves it, either lost or win that does not diminished the person’s art. The judges did there job based on their easthetic judgement and there are no right or wrong on who’s on the top. Those on top 5 deserves it!!! Congratulations to all who make it and those who didn’t!!!!!! :)

Andrezao Andrezao Artist from Paraná, Brazil

Yeah, the fact that they ignore completely the votes is ‘‘ok’‘ (There were a lot of great layouts without so many votes) .
But i was just waiting good quality layouts on top.
4th is h3ll better than 3th.

larios larios Artist from Attica, Greece

The 1st one “has” to be an interpretation of Diablo! So there is no space for surprises!

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

actually Sparadokos I had you pinned as one of the possible top 5 so the way I see it that 3rd could have been yours instead of this random pick that as can be seen by the comments no one really thinks it belongs up there.

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

and there is the curve ball.

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

Looks like I only got 2/5 right on my token votes, I only got lord of hatred and Mephisto right.

dibuholabs dibuholabs Artist from Philippines

A big kudos in the staff and judges of both sides. As they probably be given a tremendous headache in judging considering a lot of awesome entries. As for me, being a winner is just a bonus. We should congratulate ourselves to be a part of this big contest alongside with great artists. Admit it, you’ve learned something in entering this contest, or maybe improved some skills. And that I think it is the most important. For the winners, you deserved it!

larios larios Artist from Attica, Greece

An obvious winner as @wotto had stated and predicted 2 months ago: @TamplierPainter – Nice of you to join the party. I am a big fan of your work. This art is epic and printable, with some half-toning from our separator this would make a very nice tee. I’d probably use 3 reds, 2 oranges, white, 3 browns and a yellow and a green to capture this. Congratulations to all!!!
