Duriel by ArtMagix Duriel by ArtMagix
"Looking for Baal?...

This was a really hard boss back in the good ol Diablo 2 days. Duriel, the boss of Act II.

So lately I'm in the mood for updating the looks of some characters of Diablo 2, as from my last upload of Mephisto :D

Also, this was done over tonight's live streaming, thanks again for all those that came out to watch this being made!

Well, this definately looks like it's inspired by Azmodan in Diablo 3.
I do prefer the in-game look of duriel but nice work either way.

Well Duriel was a Lesser Evil before Blizzard ever conceived the idea of Diablo3, so I guess the resemblance would be there :)

My name is Duriel, if you play Diablo 2, you know me well.
Used to be a Power in Hell but the Prime 3 needed me upstairs, oh well.
Had to guard the antechamber to the Tomb of Tal Rasha, mess with me adventurer and I'll mash ya.

Looks great.

my name is Duriel, I'm the boss of a desert level, yet I have ice inchanted aura, and I'm the toughest boss in the whole game...
Reply
:iconsevenofeleven:
sevenofeleven Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2011
Sounds great but it needs to rhyme.

He was the toughest because there was no place to hide, non melee chars
had it even harder. Also the ice aura would slow chars down too.

Imagine Duriel dressed up like a rapper.
All he needs is a hat and a big clock and he is good to go.

Actually imagine Andariel as a Goth rock singer, Mephisto as a Death metal rockers.
Baal does electronica/trance.

Hard is an understatement. That guy was a dick. The small room you had to fight him in made him easily one of the hardest bosses.

Yeah,he was a bitch.Using a weak sorceress doesn't help much.I had to teleport to the town for healing for about a gajillion times.I still hate Mephisto more though.

Nice redesign of Duriel,he looks more menacing,and I like the earthy colour pallet that you used in your recent works.
