Ahh! Xia Taptara right? i go on your blog often it's taught me much
Tons of inspiration
simply amazing, love the more abstract stuff flaptraps posted, really beautiful.
Im really hoping that the workshop up in washington has a dvd version that i'll be able to download. I won't be able to make it. I would however pay handsomely for a DVD of all the artists working at it.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
--- Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

you know, judging by the size of that dragon, I really wonder how we are EVER going to take it down, even IF silvary, norn, humans, charr and asura would work together... I mean, it's not like a skill like protective spirit can protect you from THAT kind of magic...
man... really good looking concept art, among the best i've seen all across the net, and I've seen a lot of concept art
My copy of the book arrived yesterday and, what can I say, the quality is astounding. Lots better that I thought after looking at the pics here.
Awesome work guys.
Nobody should have any doubts about buying it, run while there are copies left.
very lovely, the armor makes the undead look so dashingly chivalrous! the play of the warm colors gives it such a creepy advancing feel
Jayna Pavlin, 2d/3d Artist
please can we see some of those concept arts shown by Mr Daniel Dociu during the recent Game Developer's Conference 2010
All of this is just breathtaking - as usual i've started a new day with some concept art pages to inspire me and as usual this page hasnt let me down!
Here are a couple of ingame models. Both are human wearing heavy armor. I designed, modeled and textured the face and body. I designed but did not model the armor on the female. Hai Phan designed the armor on the male.
The application used were Maya, Mudbox, Photoshop, Bodypaint plus all the proprietary GW2 engine stuff
GW2 is going to be an awesome game with stuff like this!
Please comment, always looking for pointers
I had a question, are these models textures finalized? I noticed the skin looks more plastic than I expected.. In GW there certainly wasn't this level of detail or any normal maps, but the tones & colors of the GW1 skin were much more robust & alive:

For me, an important thing is that the character models look like they belong in the game world, as if they are made from the same substance, designed with a similar style, and light interacts with them as it does with their environment. If that is achieved, then I can suspend my disbelief and immerse myself in the gameplay and story. I have to say these models are beautiful and have a very Guild Wars look to them. You have whetted my appetite to see and play the finished game.
Mindblowing!!! I just cannot wait for the game!
Builded in Maya, Zbrush, and Photoshop
Polygon Count: 3500-4500 Triangles, Tree Creature is 7000 Triangles
Textures: 1X1024X1024, Tree Creature is 2X1024X1024
Arenanet just released some GW2 official videos, and these are parts of the ceatures I made showing in the videos.
I cant wait for this game, and I have the art book for it, I was a huge fan of GW1, and this looks like its gonna hold up to my expectations, I honestly think its one of the best artbooks in my collection!
