I think the correct spelling is Cydaea (pronounced sedeah).
other evil could be Ghom, lord of Dressage/ The Larder. possibly the lord of Gluttony.
To pick up on Malthael's spoiler.. on this page there's a lot of in-game portraits from diablo3 http://www.diablowiki.net/Category:Portraits
One of the portraits belongs to something called the larder. Tyrael also appears to be black! awesome.
Jul 29, 2011Haha I hear you on the PS bit! that screen made me drool though.. I need a new screen not to mention getting a trip to blizzcon!Posted in: Fan Art
*edit* it seems you only get a blizzcon ticket though, not an all-inclusive. You can however choose to get a check for $175 instead of the ticket.
Jul 28, 2011Just wanted to let you all know blizzard announced their contests for 2011, somehow the page doesn't seem to show any information regarding the prizes. But given the sweet loot from previous years, this should be just as good.Posted in: Fan Art
The deadline for each contest is August 29.
soo.. sharpen those pencils my friends, lets unleash hell

Quote from Ophion
That looks awesome, and I like the frame
Quote from -Mephisto
I never liked this style of drawing. Not the dimensions or skill or anything, just the material, if I may even call them that, used, are annoying aesthetically.
I'm not quite sure what you mean - if you're defining "material" as medium you're saying you dont like digital painting?
Quote from Daemaro
I think it looks good so far, no doubt that it will look better when it's done.
Quote from Winged
So far so good! I checked out your other stuff on your blog and they're all awesome! I'm really excited to see how this one comes out.
Thanks for looking!
Quote from CritterCutter
I think it captures Mephisto's personality well.
I have some ideas in mind
thanks everyone, will bring an update around these coming days.

(The opening sentence translates: "Nice André! It will be interesting to see where you take this")
If you enter my website then my demo reel starts playing, displaying most of my work. If it does not you will need to update your adobe flash player. If the problem persists then perhaps try using another website browser, though I have tested it with all the current mainstream website browsers.
As for your main statement, I do believe in a strong workflow! What I am doing right now though is in fact a quite loose base, there is not yet a lot of detail. I don't use standard primitives (cubes/spheres) to block out my work, it's just not the way I do things because I feel that it is a procrastination in a certain sense (personal preference). I segment my work and in due time a more clear result emerges. As you said I probably know what I am doing, and I think that I do in fact, so there is no need to worry! Your input is valuable though and I appreciate you taking the time in stating your concern, however small it may have been.
Alright! yes I saw the demo reel, was wondering if you had a gallery though. Looking forward to see your updates in the days to come. Enjoy easter!
Apr 20, 2011Snyggt André! ska bli intressant att se vart du tar detPosted in: Fan Art
Checked out your homepage, pretty cool design, flashy and all but man, where's all your awesome 3d content? I'll have to back down from giving a crit since I don't know much about 3d in general, have been doing some 3ds max but nothing fancy.
Something to consider, in drawing it's often better to start with a loose sketch of the whole character before going into details like the head or an arm. I don't know how your workflow is, though I've seen many people start out with a basic charactermesh and build on that. I'm sure you know what you're doing! keep it up man!
Jul 29, 2010Awh come on! half of you guys mentioned decent characters haha.Posted in: Diablo II
Now.. my first single player character.. christ. It was a druid with 1 point in every skill in every tree with the exception of 2 in lycanthropy and 2 in armageddon and a few points in grizleybear / fury. I somehow made it to nightmare, by god cannot remember how I remember just having cubed a greatsword into 3 sockets and put 1 flawless emerald, 1 flawless topaz and an ort rune into it. Damn I was proud.
Feb 22, 2010It's a cool brush I found in a brush set, I can send it too you. It's like a huge starshaped brush, perfect for isolating point of attention and really draw in the viewer. Gonna keep i subtle tho, you won't notice any lines but they will guide your subconcious.Posted in: Fan Art
only a few of these brushes are realy my own, the rest are adaptions of other people's.
Feb 22, 2010Dun dun dun...! lvl 19 necromancer with a haxed charm giving him +1 to revive (however possible?!) casts unholy magic on this thread. Laptop up and working again.Posted in: Fan Art
Re-woking the sorc. More to come! (yes her skin should be darker)

Aug 21, 2008Here are some minor reflections about the pvp in Diablo II. I'm not going to list any suggested additions to the pvp aspects of the game, since I'd more likeley to see these flaws fixed than adding new stuff to an allready fully functional, yet minorly flawed system.Posted in: News
Its long - and if you're a d2jsp fan-boy, don't read, or do, and please convince me to think otherwise of d2jsp instead of flaming me. As it is now I only see d2jsp as an obstacle that is in the way.
Things that ruined pvp in Diablo II
*Gear - Gear plays such a vital role in diablo 2 that if you don't have an enigma, you cannot pvp. It is sad, and it is true. However, this is not a unique problem. All pvp-based games are gear based from my experience. Take WoW for instance, my Season 1 / tier 4 equipped feral druid doesn't stand a chance against a season 2 / tier 5 druid if we were to just hit each other.
Now that is not how a duel in WoW takes place - actually in WoW, if the two combatants are similar geared it is all up to skill - Which I cannot see in Diablo 2. It doesn't matter how skilled you are at dueling in Diablo II - What matters is that
a) You have an account at d2jsp ...
b) You are rich at d2jsp - which enables you to buy certain items before others and gives you certain privelages.
c) You have an enigma
What I'd like to see in Diablo 3 is some sort of balance so that the entire aspect of Diablo dueling isn't relying on one single item.
I would like to see some sort of limit to the trading of certain really good items, to prevent "black market" on sites like d2jsp where the first found items are sold for many THOUSANDs of dollars. It is true. In the beginning of the ladder reset I witnessed the selling of the first Ber rune. It went for a sum of more than 30.000, thirtythousand, forum gold. The price for 3075 forum gold in real cash is 100$... you make the math..
Thats right. The first Ber rune was sold for more than 1000$ on a black market, which I find totaly lame and ruining the whole point of the game.
I suggest a "account vault" or something similar. A stash shared amongst all the characters on the account, where kick-ass items belong. These items can only be traded among characters on the account, or something similar. The only problem with this is that people will start selling accounts instead of items - whic I will leave up to you to deal with Blizzard. However note that black markets like d2jsp ruin the game.
*Classes - Since the introduction of certain runewords and synergies in patch 1.10 people have favored only a few builds of the many builds out there.
Now in general the dominating builds out there in the top pvp games are the Hammerdinr, The Wind-druid, trap-assasin, Javazon, etc.
I cannot list all for I myself do not know entireley. But based on what I've been combating over the countless days of duelling on Battle.net, there are only a limited functioning character builds that work for pvp.
It is sad that great spells like hydra, armageddon, Phoenix Strike etc. are overlooked. They are completeley functional and level 30 spells. Yet they are so worthless in pvp it's not funny.
And ofcourse... all the hacks circulating, the slow servers, the realm downs etc. I need not say more... and as with the universe, within all bad, there is good.
Things that made pvp in Diablo II really fun
it's allways ten times harder to list good things with a game.. ah well
*Fun - PvP in Diablo II is really fun. It is fun because you get to kill each other. it is fun because it' s so easy to do. It is fun because it is so action based and adrenaline-rushing ( Hardcore pvp anyone? ). It is fun because certain people tend to loose their temper when you've killed them a couple of times in a row. It is fun because it is Diablo II. It doesn't matter what character you are playing - it will still be fun. That is what makes Diablo II into DIABLO TWO.
.. it got short.. anyway, on to the trading.
If PVP is the Yin of Diablo II, then trading is the Yang. For PvP cannot exist without the contribution of the magicfinding people that get out there, find the items and equip them on those in need.
What saddens me is that the entire economy of the game is decided on black markets, where the rich get everything and the poor have to wait until the end of the ladder-season, or play on non-ladder.
I'd like to see trading as a fun part of the game again.
Conclusion.. Sites like d2jsp ruins the whole point of the game. People actually spend more time there buying items then what they do in game.
On the other hand, there's nothing that can be done. There will allways be black markets. In WoW it is the gold-farming buisness. In Diablo 3, there will be something else if the present system is changed.
Yes, I do rant alot about d2jsp, because I think it ruins the gameplay. What is the point of having a site where anything is obtainable, and which dominates the price on battle.net
-to be able to get the stuff we want- you might say. True that, but whats the fun in cashing out 100$ for an enigma. I mean come on, the fun in the game is to go grind those mobs, find those really rare items, or those pretty common ones that gives you something useful in return if traded. Not logg onto a webpage, and within 10 minutes have a completeley geared character with all the major runewords.
