i dont want to create hype anymore, but honestly that artstyle is different then what we got with d3. this one looks a bit better and fitting in my opinion. a bit more realistic, but still consisting overly used colors(too much blue everywhere, just like act 5 with westmarch. why everything must have a dominant color? thats lazy and sucks hard. blizzard assuming its players as pure idiots who cant distinguish two different zones without obvious color differencies. you are swimming in red colors? then you are in your way to the butcher. you swarm in yellow? then you are on your way to belial. its too damn obvious and unrealistic.
and ofcourse, over the top weapon designs. all those weapons look too much thick, big and well.. too much epic. simplicity has its own charm and blizzard still doesnt get it. i mean come on necro had some simple wand in its hand in d2. thats enough and looks good.
i cant say enough about damn art choices. look at this skull in female necro, that thing is has no flesh but it has experssions?! da f.ck? why does it have any expression at all? it doesnt have to have obvious expressions or poses.. its a fature overly used in cartoons. if you are drawing a skull, just draw a skull. natural skulls has halllow and creepy feeling to them.
oh well, i suddenly grew angry. sorry for sounding too negative, but i have to be honest as a diablo fan. i hope we see more art style change in future instead of same one in d3. this image doesnt have some change but imho its not enough.
