Nati's fanworks showcase - NEWEST: THE SIX ROUND CHALLENGER

Greetings fellow exiles!

One of the most inspiring aspects of the Path of Exile community (to me at least) is the sheer amount of talent that gets showcased again and again. I've contributed a few times, mostly in the talent competitions, and have finally build up the guts to make a whole thread to collect my fanworks, both the old entries and the ones yet to come. I'll try to post a new piece once a league, depending on how busy I am.

Stay a while, enjoy and get inspired!


Order of works: NEW --> OLD

THE SIX ROUND CHALLENGER
on May 29th, 2021

In my defence, chasing Trialmaster for 3-4 weeks has reduced my brain to grey goo. Upon encountering him in a map, he randomly said "You only made it six rounds last time. Why do you bother?", and it only went downhill from there.

That being said, this has been one of the funniest drawings I've ever done and possibly the silliest too. I'm equal parts sorry and not sorry at all.

Shoutout to my friend Seekar for nudging me to get this done in time for the deadline and to SMOKOwita for being my artistic partner-in-crime.

THE RITUAL ARC WITCH
on February 28th, 2021

Even tho my goal of getting 36 challenges this league was my main focus, I DID manage to squeeze in an entry for the February-March 2021 talent competition.

Why this motif?

Ritual League may be one of the most aesthetically pleasing leagues I've played yet... and I like the mechanic too! Encountering Rituals during mapping has felt "natural", because the Ritual arenas themselves look like they belong there. Unlike Blight pumps, Legion monoliths and Breach portals (all amazing content, don't get me wrong) whom all just look so awfully out of place and unlike anything in the surrounding area, Ritual just blends in perfectly. I've seen some really cool combo's, like in Crimson Temple, Crimson Township and Haunted Mansion, which I can't recall ever noticing with any previous leagues. The different tiers and the subtle little modifications to the "totems" themselves, is kinda genius. I really hope Ritual will become part of core game, in some way or another!

Why Arc Witch?

You can't really say "Path of Exile" without saying "Enki's Arc Witch", now can you? Enki has set the standard of what a GREAT build guide is and has helped several thousand players get into PoE. I guess this is also a small tribute to him?

This particular Witch is wearing a Bone Circlet, Cloak of Defiance, Fingerless Silk Gloves, Two-Toned Boots and dual Demon's Horn's.

WHISPERS - THE STRANGE VOICE
on December 27th, 2020

Note: If you talk to Nenet in the Rogue Harbour, she has a voice line concerning The Strange Voice. While it isn't much, it IS the first acknowledgement (from someone other than the Exile) of the The Strange Voice BEING THERE and not just the Exile hearing voices.

Ever since I heard the voice line, I had this picture stuck in my head; of my character seemingly unfazed about this insanely strong entity haunting her, walking calmly along the promenade part of the Rogue Harbour at night. I VERY rarely draw elaborate backgrounds with advanced perspective, MUCH LESS of places with barely any references I can use. I can't tell you how many Rogue Markers I've spent on just getting to the Rogue Harbour to look around and pay extra attention to small details.

GOLEMANCY (NatiTheIndecisive level 100 celebration)
on December 4, 2020 ... was featured by GGG in the Community Showcase

Note: I hit level 100 for the first time during Heist league (yay!) and what started as a tribute to that personal achievement turned into a tribute to Golemancy in general. Each type of golem is represented in the image, as is the key uniques I used in my Stone Golemancer build (Primordial Chain, Cold Iron Point, The Brass Dome and The Stampede).

The MTX I used is the Cult of Darkness armour set with Nenet's Hood + Synthesis Crown Attachment and Pandemonium Cloak. Best MTX to date!

TRIBUTE TO BEX (happy 3.12 announcement)
on September 1, 2020

Note: This was a little something for our CM Bex to congratulate her on yet another teaser-season bringing the hype. Alternate title: "I thought my teasers were pretty obvious" ... they really aren't.

THE STRANGE VOICE FANART
on July 14, 2020 ... was featured by GGG in the Community Showcase


"Let yourself get drawn into the mire..."

Note: The Strange Voice is by far my favourite boss, even tho we never got to fight him in Delirium League. Huge kudos to the GGG team and voice actor Michael Hallows for bringing him to life.
Ps. Can we have a proper refference guide to his design and color scheme anytime soon?

I will do my best to update a bit more frequently, but as always, IRL really is the deciding factor of how much I can manage every month. Still, a heartfelt thank you!
