Smite of the Heavens by saint-max Smite of the Heavens by saint-max
Greetings friends and followers

This is my entry for the D3:RoS fan art contest.

----------------
It was really fun to work on this illustration, it has been a long time since I worked on a painting taking this approach. I knew from the start that I want to draw a female Crusader, being the iconic class for this expansion, setting her up in an action scene. I based the demon on images from the original concept art (I didn't watch any walk-through from act V coz I didn't want to spoil the game for myself), but looks like I ended up creating a new demon minion of Malthael.

For the wip follow this link to my scrap book :D

I totally agree, there are lots of amazing artworks but I am disappointed with their final 20 picks, some deserve it while others are just garbage work compared to what have been submitted.
I listed 20+ artworks that should've been in the top 20 according to me :P

Oh that looks awesome~ I really like the pillar of light aura acting as a barrier and extension of the shield great idea.

Is this the final composition? The flail and Malthael's scythe hand seems to be cutting real close to the border

Yep you are absolutely right, after sketching I just committed myself on this composition. I think stepping out from the painting for a couple of days gives me a fresh look and also reading all the comments and thoughts from the community dose really help. I did reach this level where if I work any more on it I will just start ruining it :P 
I will try to see if the composition can be fixed, will run some tests ;)
