Diablo III: Book of Cain – the drawings

by Petar Meseldzija

A few months ago I wrote about my participation within the book project named Diablo III: Book of Cain. Because the book was not released at that moment, I was not allowed to show the three drawings I was commissioned to do. I promised to post the drawings as soon as the book is released.

Well, the book is now available for purchase, and these are the drawings…
Tyrael battling against Tal Rasha

Tal Rasha

King Leoric and Archbishop Lazarus executing  peasant

This is how the printed drawings look like.

  2. Man, send that designer a gift. The final printed book looks awesome! Great images. Also, didn't realize there was a character named Leoric. Isn't that the king/leader of the Spectral Knights in the 80's Visionaries cartoon?

  4. Good stuff... Brom and Adrian Smith also had some great pieces in the book...at less than 25 bucks on Amazon it's a steal, imo....

  6. Petar, do you do these entirely from imagination without any reference for lighting, anatomy, armor etc.?

  8. Keep in mind that it will take a little time before you are able to craft such high level gems as the Radiant Star Ruby but you should have access to lower level gems of the chipped, flawed and normal varieties fairly early on.

    Diablo 3 gem bonus experience is going to be huge in the Diablo 3 leveling process. Make good use of it and plan to level those jewelers!
