Yes,i agree there was a lot of great work, but for me you were in the top of three winners, oddly enough, none of them win, i was very surprised
This is by far my favorite/the best entry in this contest. I am amazed and totally inspired!
I was wanting to submit my own entry but I don't think it can even compare to this!
"showing a central figure(s) from one of the six classes of Heroes of Sanctuary or of Malthael preparing for the coming conflict"
Your character, in deed, seems preparing for tha huge and cataclysm conflict... Other works on the contest gallery don't seems to my that meets that step 2... Many are already in battle, and other are just a fanart of a oficial Diablo character.
But your work is pretty differente compared to the others. Man, for me, you're the winner of this contest...
