Diablo 3: Eight by Holyknight3000

Diablo 3: Eight

To Echo what I said earlier:

It's been a long road so far. Many people I probably cannot count have seen my wallpaper art in some way via the multitude of websites and search engines over the years. If your a fan of Diablo I'm sure you have at least seen one of my wallpapers. To all of you truly thank you for enjoying each and every wallpaper I put out, hell even the ones you hate :) (Smile). I know i have had great walls and stinkers but all-in-all this is a hobby done out of love for the game world, the community and beyond.

I use to share my wallpapers with my late father years back he was so proud of them. I wish he could see what I've done these days. It's been over 8 years since the cinematic reveal of Diablo 3 at the World Wide Invitational in 2008. I still remember the very very laggy stream and almost missing the first few seconds of the reveal. I remember scowering the diablofans and forums when people were looking the teasers over with all the clues and hints. All the fun and guesswork and theories that were being done.

I remember having an idea after my first simple wallpaper I made just from the hype. A wallpaper which looks horrible these days but meh. Had to start somewhere. But i still remember having a silly idea with a runeword for a banner on my forum posts that would be in the corners just as an experiment. Figure I'd make the runes look like they were simply on fire. I had a very old graphics program then. But the simple idea looked so cool i was like do I want to go all in and not look back? After a few days maybe longer I did the same effect to all 33 of the original diablo 2 runes. And just like that the Fiery Runes were born and hit the ground running.

So sorry I went down memory lane here. Hopefully I can find that old lost banner art or have some of it somewhere so you guys can see where it all began. Found them later in the night. But thank you for enjoying my work after all this time. If your still reading this then thank you too. This stuff all means the world to me and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Also Thank you to the many fansites that have come and gone and are still with us that have shared/featured my wallpapers as well over the years. Also thank you to the Diablo 3 Community Management Team members current and past as well. You guys are all awesome.

Last but by no means least I'd like to also say thank you to the countless number of fan artists and artists who have allowed me to use their works in my wallpapers. I tried so hard to make sure you were credited and linked back to as best as possible.

Thank you seriously everyone for 8 proud years working on these wallpapers.
