Greetings all. I spent more time on this wallpaper that the last few. Since the beta had been announced I decided to dedicate this wallpaper to the announcement for the game. Plus with some suggestions I decided also to make this wallpaper of all 5 player classes Instead of one at a time. I will release a non fiery runes version later this weekend. I just wanted to get this one out.
Now then the time It took me to cut out each and every class was at least an hour average. The wizard one I had In my 2 year anniversary and wanted to reuse It In a newer wallpaper and now was a great time for it. That male barbarian was a PAIN to cut out because of the fur alone. Same with the demon hunter. She had so many reticals I had to hide most of her. The Monk also had some issues with the bottom right foot of his. A demon cut In front of him so I had to put him behind something to hide that. The Witch doctor I tried to use what I did when I first used this artwork on an older wallpaper and crop certain parts of the voodoo doll and make it look as seamless as possible.
This week I have both size made for sure so please enjoy them. Next week I will have the Followers since they were recently revealed as I was finishing this piece.

Some small elements of Adobe CS3
I think what you did was nifty--that stuff around the edges--but I'd like it if you *happened* to have one that's just the centerpiece. Just saying.
I thought about leaving the sides blank but they just seemed bland. I will make another version that will be more just the guys in the middle. Same with one w/o the runes too. I'll have them up a little later.
I build my wallpapers in a 10 year old program called Corel Photo-Paint 8, But as time goes on i'm getting more proficient with CS3. Hell i redid the rune-circle warp angle in CS3 for a cleaner result now. I still use CPT8 though because i can still be precise with my cut outs and arrangement. I mean i've used this program for 13 years. Why stop? lol.
