Absolutely amazing, one by one.
Arenanet! You blow my mind!
Gonna buy the artbook to thank and support you guys for the awesome work, and ofcourse for the stunning artwork it includes!
Another thing i like to mention is that everyone keeps on growing and growing there, i remember the first guild wars artbook, and then the art was already stunning,.. but now the mind-blow-up factor keeps on rising and rising, like a curve!
Keep it up guys, biiiig fan over here

I'm just hoping for a second art book in the Collector's Edition. But if that doesn't happen, I guess I'll just keep checking back here. Thanks for sharing the new pictures. I especially like the one with the elevated structure in the swampy/coastal area.
Just got the artbook, and i think i might get Objectiphilia. I'm in love with this book, not only is the art truly amazing and astonishing, but also the book itself is awesome. It has a great cover, and the layout of the pages is very nice (also the paint strokes on the pages are a real nice touch). Thanks for the great art guys, I must say, you are great artists who can really pass over a feeling by your work.
For anyone who hasn't bought one, get one (or two, it's that great).
Ballistic Publishing makes the best art books out there (Expose and d'Artiste among them) and ImagineFX is probably the best art magazine around. The only qualifier to the above statement is that the Guild Wars 2 art book is as good as anything Ballistic puts out.
The second piece is a selection for this year's Into the Pixel exhibition. It also earned the Master Award in Expose 7. It's an exploratory piece that was less concerned with the Guild Wars setting but rather scale and energy of the environment.
Here's some more Guild Wars art. Snow Battle was in Spectrum (which just came out, check it out great art) and some wallpapers I made out of the painting I did for the trailer. You can find the official versions on the Guild Wars 2 website.
Prostate Sunrise is being modest... The to piece wasn't just IN spectrum, it received the Silver Medal in the concept art category, as well as being a one of only 16 selections in this years Into the Pixel show. Go Kekai!
