Crusader Murkalot Doesn't Fear the Reaper by KrisCooper Crusader Murkalot Doesn't Fear the Reaper by KrisCooper
Mgrlrglrglrglrlgl!! How about some love for Murkalot, Blizzard's 'fishiest' of crusaders?

This is my submission for the Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Fan Art Contest. I decided to focus on the upcoming Crusader class for this piece, and felt that Blizzard's sense of humor offered some room to create an amusing image. I recently saw a screenshot of the in-game World of Warcraft pet 'Murkalot', when browsing for ideas. I had a mental image of him, shattering his way through a dungeon wall to mercilessly batter poor Malthael to a bony evil pulp with his holy flail, and felt compelled to chase it. Thanks for stopping by, and thank you Blizzard for posting this fun contest! Image details/info below.

Is it possible to get this in poster form?

This is the largest resolution version of the image, and I didn't anticipate making any posters of it unfortunately. The file is free to download, and you are welcome to download the image and resize it larger for a poster print. However, bear in mind that if you make it a lot larger than its original resolution, when you go to print it all the edges will be a bit fuzzy up close; but that's one way to get a poster out of this :P

This is a humorous take on Malthael and an impending defeat,
made whole by a seriousness that honestly takes my breath away.

The pose and facial detail you've placed your bursting WoW/Crusader in 
is outstanding, you've captured a surprised, but battle ready Malthael 
wonderfully, and the exploding environment here seems to burst out of the image itself.

A job very well done. Thanks a bunch.
