    I'm no artist or Photoshop pro, but I had this thought and had to get it out.

    So I came up with this:

    Understatement of the day. Why does everyone have to show me every day that I'm the least creative person in the world, ever. Damn, I want to be able to make something like that, too.

    I'm serious. My little brother is an art student in undergrad right now and he just blows everyone I know out of the water. I might be "competent," but I'm definitely not pro.

    With a presentation box, too. That's a winner.

    This is what happened after I submitted this to Blizzard.



    In between I explained that this is for Diablo III.

    And suddenly it all made sense to him.

    Perhaps Blizzard has become completely WoWified.

    I hope Bagstone doesn't take it too seriously, and sees it as the friendly ribbing that it is. And yes, the box makes it awesome.


    @the e-mail exchange: brilliant. One would think that the Echoing Fury and the Hydra would make it clear, but oh well. It is what it is.
    The whole thing is quite funny, btw. I hate those damned Shaman.

    Ha. Bagstone.

    I always suspected you worked for Blizzard, although I had no idea you were the one answering e-mails.

    I will refrain from answering any such claims as is within my contract with other parties I will not mention.

    Ha. Bagstone.

    I wish I could make the EF clearer, but I made the noobie mistake of flattening the image and then overwriting the master copy :doh:

    But I added clarification to the the resurrection process and added bandages to the resurrected Fallen.

    No, not at all, I actually had a good laugh. :-)

    My response was just after a weekend with long train rides/plane flights, I constantly had my tablet+pen with me and tried several Android apps to come up with something creative. Just anything that looks like I'm not a 3 year old. And I failed. Then I see this picture and the comment... :P

    May I ask how this was created? What hardware/software did you use? I've tried so many different things but nothing worked for me so far. It's just like Ken Robinson said, school kills creativity (I was actually not bad at painting as a kid).

    i like it. it sort of represents for me "the grind" as one would sit in the one spot "with ease" ;) and vaporise.

    - don't cross the streams? Total plutonic reversal :P oh i just noticed what looks like an echoing fury on the second last frame. even more fitting
    May the heroes rise from the pit of despair and the bards sing of the day of death renewed to everlasting
    immortality....awaiting your return to the lands of Sanctuary may peace be with you on this day...your day of birth.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I got the okay from Blizzard, but what they do with it from here on out is up to them.
