When I was at opening ceremonies for Blizzcon, I actually thought Blizzard was trolling the community with their artwork for Diablo III by putting Deathwing on the box cover of D3 when they were announcing the annual pass for WOW players. It took me a few minutes to realize it wasn't Deathwing on the box cover. Other pictures of Diablo don't look quite as much like Deathwing, though.

I think it's just the similar color scheme, over-exposure to Deathwing, and the type of angles in the shot that make them somewhat similar. I mean, you can definitely tell that they are different if you look hard enough. The specific features of the two faces are quite drastically different.

Tooloflisis, it is the posing of the box cover art shot:

That's the particular shot that resembles the Deathwing picture you posted, because of both the coloring and just the particular face close-up that masks a lot of their distinguishing features.

Now, your figure shows how it's just that one promotional piece of artwork, and not the two actual creatures, that are similar.

Who's that deathwing everyone seems to know about? A link to its picture would be appreciated.
