Lord of Hatred by ArtDoge Lord of Hatred by ArtDoge
Mephisto, one of the three Prime Evils

He looked really silly in Diablo 2, so I'd thought of having a little redo, to make him look more badass.

Because in Diablo 2 he had manifested inside a human, so you weren't seeing the real him.

Didn't look silly to me, when I played back then :D. He just has this really "nasty" looking, "dangling" spinal cord, jutting out of his chest :o.

this makes me wish he returned in Diablo III. Damm He does look more badass this way. You did an awesome job.



Say if you don't mind you mind I use this design for him in my fanfic. (crossover fanfic)

Mephisto never looked silly, he just used the form of a Zakarum Priest in Diablo II. Great picture but he doesn't have that... lordish look like in D2.

And not just any Zakarum priest, but the high priest Sankekur!
...I'm really not sure why I know that.

Mephisto as the Prime Evil.

Actually Mephisto in his true form has four arms instead of tentacles.

I really like your new take on the lords of hell, although I liked mephisto's long horns from D2 better. Everything else looks way more badass. Awesome job.

This remake remembers me te remakes of Mr. Jack. He painted the SC zerg characters better than the originals... now he is an artist in Blizz. as I know. I hope it will be the same with you.:) And can't wait to see Duriel. :)

Great take, I hate that part of the game simply for the bastard pygmys. The Summoner or Ancient Kaa the Soul-less would be cool too.

Ah! Aggressive yes! Faster looking too!
When you're evil even anatomy doesn't hold ya back!
Nice grimace on the face... makes him look a bit less of an eater of worlds by his figure but still scary non the less!

The silhouette is noticeable too!
