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.

Well, Mine was in on the 12th, but they rejected it because It had more than three colors, Gave me one more chance, but it got rejected again, even though I made the picture smaller and two-tone… Second rejection didn’t give a reason, oh well, didn’t stand a chance anyway.

@ArthemysLunae The reason I can tell is because I am around art most of the day so I can tell which ones fall short of near perfection. Some of the basics is looking at the content and deciding if the content reflects the game and the character subject. For example there are a lot of barbarians but of those only a couple look like a barbarian from diablo, the rest are just big guys in armor that could be from anything. The Blizzard artists that will judge these will be fickle about anatomy and basics since they would want designs on the shirts that people will want to wear rather than ones where they are more likely to be critiqued than bought. There were several shirts I almost counted as a possibly being in the top 20 that I through out because I really have no idea what is on the shirt even though what they made is cool. All but a few of the witchdoctors I disqualified in my head because they were some kind of masked dude but not a diablo masked dude. Oh and something that might give you a better idea is to start removing a lot of the similar stuff leaving only the best of them, kind of like how there is something like 40 or so diablos and most of them are the same thing just different styles.

jieyi jieyi Artist from United States

hi, everyone!
here’s a stained glass inspired entry. i wanted to take a more graphic approach to the design, and have something that will work nicely composition-wise with the shape of the shirt.

@nicebleed: Wow! I love it!

Luneder Luneder Artist from Idaho, United States

Oh and I noticed one that either accidentally got through the filtering process or they just let slide. There is a Maghda shirt up even though she isn’t on the list. Not really worried about it because it really isn’t high quality enough to get anywhere but I figure I should at least mention it in case it got through by accident.
