Guild Wars 2 Guru, the main forums that Arenanet pays attention to and sends their goons (:P) to intimidate, is kind of a mixed bag at times. You really have to sift through the place to find the threads that are gems.
One of those threads for quite some time now has been the GW2 art update thread. Dedicated contributors, monitoring various concept art websites, updating the thread whenever they come across Guild Wars 2 art.
And then I post about it.
Of course I haven’t since January I think, but now is a good time since there is quite a few new images.
For instance check out this pair of sylvari.
Very elegant, and the robes are suggestive of feathers. My first thought was mesmers, but perhaps, as someone suggested in the thread, they are Nightmare Court? Richard Anderson.
Daniel Dociu is one of the most well known concept artists in the business. Here’s one of his latest.
It would be hard to choose amongst Richard Anderson’s art. He has many stunning pieces. Some people prefer the golems above, but I prefer the downpour of arrows below. Tons of relatively new stuff at his website as well.
And then there is Levi Hopkins who I’ve also posted a lot of art from. The below image is titled Abandoned Ogre Again. Perhaps they weren’t satisfied with his first version, or perhaps he did more than one. In any case it seems to be a reference to the Jotun perhaps? We did hear that they had a civilization that has slowly died and made them more tribal.
Anyway, 3 great artists that work for Arenanet. Be sure to check out their sites for more eye candy.
