    Fan Creation of the Week: The Art of Samo Kramberger

    This week’s community spotlight shines brightly on fan artist Samo Kramberger and his fantastic sculptures of iconic Diablo III characters. His sculptures were created with wire and polymer clay and painted with acylics.

    His Barbarian's axes, even light up!

    In addition to sculpting each of the five hero classes, Samo also sculpted a replica of the Skeleton King and a fitting display for his collection.

    Samo was kind enough to share an assortment of behind-the-scenes photos chronicling the creation of his highly detailed sculptures. You can find a few glimpses of his process below, and there are even more photos in his extensive Facebook gallery.

    She also shared a number of fantastic photos from her various Diablo III photoshoots that are definitely worth checking out.

    Eager to see more of Samo’s incredible sculptures? Check out his full body of work on his official website, Facebook account, andDeviantArt account!

    I would buy those figurines, no doubt about that. Great work
    I can see what you see not. Vision milky, then eyes rot.
    When you turn, they will be gone. Whispering their hidden song.

    Then you see what cannot be. Shadows move where light should be.

    Some really awesome suggestions there by MrMonstrosity there. Lets hope Blizzard has a look-see at what's going over here at Diablofans every now and then.
    Those sculptures are amazing.
    Bashiok - Blizzard Representative - 08/01/2011 -"So how many skill combinations are there now? Well taking into account 6 active skills, all the rune combinations, and 3 passives we currently expect each class to have roughly 2,285,814,795,264 different build combinations."

    Well finally that thread is up in the home page.About time.
    Grinding Gear Games (Company that produced POE): "These are great Ideas, we will use them for sure as they are clearly what the player base is looking for."

    Blizzard: "While we agree that this game needs re-working and that these ideas could help the future of this game, we have no plans to listen to our fan-base at this time."
