On a related note Penny Arcade is selling Guild Wars prints in their online store by Daniel, Kekai, Jaime, and Jason. Thought I'd put out the word. I'm buying some for sure.
You'll see some of the models from the creature concept art throughout this thread.
Oh my god... Can someone tell me why this isn't in the best of CA? Seriously.
This is probably the biggest source of inspiration I've found on this website. It really shows what you can accomplish with dedication and hard work.
My jaw literally dropped as I continued to scroll down through all of the artwork. Thank you for fueling my imagination... you've made my Thanksgiving!
This stuff is really kickass and the best part: It looks totally different than most other game concepts... which is great!
I really like the designs.
exelente hacia mucho que no me sorprendia asi
This one blows my F'ing mind, i love the color and texture of it. Total props on everything here, awesome awesome stuff.
"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."

Awesome, awesome work guys! I was lucky enough to pick up the PC Gamer that had a feature on this, but it's great to see all the new work, and view everything in it's natural on-screen form.
I have to say I'd never been that interested in Guild Wars, but seeing all the great artwork that has gone into developing it is really making me think again.
Not being able to show your artwork can be a real pain in the ass, so I really feel for you all. I do a lot of work for advertising, which is even more fun as everythings confidential until it's released, but they don't bother telling you when that happens (yay!)
Once again, kudos on all the great images and fantastic illustration - it's really knocked my socks off.

Hello Dougbot and Jamie and Tinfoil
All of your work is very inspiring. Keep it coming.
This thread is the phuckin' good stuff. Thanks for sharing.
Watch out for Piranhas
So this is what a thread where great artist post concept art from a game looks like... hmmm....... Amazzzziiiinnnngggg!!!!!!
First of all,
congrats on your work all, it has the ability to stun a person just by looking at it, as a faithfull player of all GW-games I reconize most of all the stuff shown here and it is most interesting to finally see where all the concepts and ideas started from. Too bad all this stuff isn't published in a concept-art book like as with the previous games. (otherwise I'd sure buy it )
You guys must have heard this a thousand times, but I hope to achieve the same kind of quality with my drawings and sketches as what I have seen here so far. Altough I suspect it seems impossible at this time to become such a good concept artist
Anyway, definitely hope to see more with the upcoming Guild Wars 2 someday
A great fan
What can I expect anything more wonderful than this? This thread is amazing, speechless and also inspiring!!!>3
I tried to compare each different styles and pick the "best" one. Yet it only made me come to realize that, there is no "best". To me, you guys are all the best!!
