so many great character pieces here.
I'm wondering how long you spend (or are allowed to spend) on each one. How much do you get done in a given week?

Dude.. a giraff centaur... I don't think it get's much cooler than that.
This stuff is seriously mind blowing. I love this sort of stuff, it gets me excited about art all over again with each passing frame and as an amateur, I look forward to working my way up to the indescribable skill level that's being posted in here. On that note, I think I leave for school early, as that's the only place I have to work with anything much better than paint ms.
ooh my.. i think i just poopied in my panties!
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Sooooooooooooooooooo good. So inspiring... thanks for the post guys.. I think I'm gonna go paint now.
anyone know if there are still art books on shelves? ive played the other two guildwars, i think im due for the third installement, i think they got quite creative with the new artwork. i liked the step in the last game, but i think this one makes the game much better for my style. AWESOME WORK GUYS!!!!!
I could have sworn there were more creatures than this... I'll have to dig a bit more when I get back into the office.
I know you guys got permission, but is this even legal? Holy shit, I'm totally overwhelmed. And I'm surprised to see you got in on the action too Flaps, I thought you were still holding onto amateur status ;p
This thread is solid, 24k, GOLD!!! Everyone on this project is amazing, just amazing! pld:
M.C.B, I'm a fan! Love the monsters, love the costumes, love the color and rendering style, pure joy my friend.
Thank you all for sharing this treasure with the rest of us, what a treat
Great work M.C.! Characters and creatures are outstanding. thnx 4sharing.Originally Posted by M.C.BarrettI could have sworn there were more creatures than this... I'll have to dig a bit more when I get back into the office.
M.C. Barrett: You painting style is amazingly smooth. Normally I don't like overly smooth looking things, but you bring in a beautiful simplicity, expecially with the characters. Like you only painted them with 2 or 3 colors, but they were EXACTLY the right ones. Beautiful materials as well...metals, colored fabrics, leather...you're on my list of people I would pay to just let me watch a painting session. (which also means these are going in my "to study" folder )
Prostate: GODDAMN, you're a fucking monster. All of your characters have an amazingly believeable presense, and overall a wonderful gritty texture. I would love to see a cam-tasia capture of you painting as well...Why no top spot for Prostate I wonder?
Overall...blown away, probably gonna go out and buy Night Fall...tho I have so far resisted the call to Guild Wars by the last orgasmic post of art...this one has pushed me over the edge.

Hey, great concentration of high quality work here!
simply gorgeous! i still haven't picked up nightfall yet! ah.. now i feel even worse.. lol
I love the texture and colour !!! wonderful job!!!
What a pleasure to look all of your works.
Thanks for the motivation
Barrett, I think you are the best creature designer ever.
If you were born when norse mythology was written, we would have some insane tomes to look at.
let it be.
I'm in love with concept art in general, but these are just breath-taking - all of them. Barrett gets +10 points for using thumbnails from me, though My dial-up says thanks, haha. Keep up the awesome work, guys, I can't wait to get a normal connection so I can play the game :]
Hey all. Here's some icons from the game. This is a small, small, small amount of icons I did, and only for GW Nightfall.
PS, I think I read people asking me about how long my creature concepts take. It depends, lately I'm doing 1-3 a day, because I'm really trying to improve (so far though I'm failing miserably). But most in this thread where between 3-7 a day. I used to have a rule of 5 a day at least, but rules are stoopid and don't help anyone increase their skills.
mc - you're the ultimate hero....those creatures are just superb.

Sweet Icons doug, I can't think of a better preson to carry the icon load around here.
One other responsibility i have (along with doug) is doing icons. here's a few.
Bomba - hey thanks man. most of these are not used in the game. I dont usually have a elaborate thumbnail design process. mostly little doodles stuff for myself. But we do usaully present stuff in this manner and hope for the best.
Good to see another awe inspiring post from arenanet. Killer work from all. I love to see these long posts with all the great work inside. How do you's do it?
Cake: 17th row, 2nd from the right, I think that one could have used a bit more contrast in the background. I'm afraid you'll have to redo all of these for the sake of stylistic continuity. You have three days.
Doug: Pack your stuff and go home.
