Forgive me on the blurriness of this image. I had to choose to leave it jagged and rough or blur it some to look a little better and i chose the latter.
I used a screen capture of the image from Blizzard's Diablo III Concept Art Trailer Video that then showed during Blizzcon 2008 when they first revealed Diablo 3 to us.
I wanted to use a different image than the one from the cinematic trailer and that was the best candidate for it. I had to repair and do some paint work on the far right side of the image by the tombstone and the mountains because the image was too short. I'm please with how that turned out.
I also chose to not use any texture behind the map this time because when i looked at the wallpaper with the map faded almost to black but you could still see it. It helped make sure you were grasped upon the image of the ruins of ureh.
I hope you like, and I'll see you next week for another diablo 3 based wallpaper!
