Blizzard just released their latest Diablo IV Quarterly Update with loads of information on artwork for characters, monsters, and allies.

Art is an important factor in Diablo, giving each game that unique, dark, and despairing look.

The world of Diablo is not a great place, and players do their best to make it a little bit better for those that inhabit it.

Without just the right look, players would not feel that overarching sense of dread and hopelessness that stems from the very core of the game.

The Diablo IV Quarterly Update shines a light on the character development of Lilith and the Sorceress Class, as well as character customization options.

For the first time ever, players can customize how their character looks, changing the skin color, facial markings, hair, and more.

A new Lair is also coming that will let players tweak their wardrobe throughout the game, mixing and matching pieces of armor and accessories for their class, including the items' colors.
