Love the mograph concept narrative!
Geez, you guys are too good! I love all of the artwork for it I have seen so far, and I'm glad you are taking as much time as possible to get it right for us it's going to be awesome, I just know it! Aah I'm all excited again I've been playing Guild Wars since it's release, and been so excited every since Guild Wars 2 was announced! Great work, I really cannot wait to be able to play the game.
awesome work thanks for sharing!
Holy fucking hell. Kekai, you've topped yourself yet again. Amazing work all around for the arenanet crew. Those environments are stunning.
I did a search for this because I knew it would come up here somewhere! My jaw literally dropped watching this, its absolutely beautiful.
Yes...truly amazing stuff...as always! It's nice to see that there will be FDSs in GW2
Waiting not so patiently.

Damn... my eyes... melting... again!
Your posts with the concepts from the first game are among the best concept art I´ve seen, ever. Period.
Oh yeah, 2.5D is a way to go!
Well, it's not hard from tools perspective. Any software used for VFX, like After Effects is suitable. To do these effects, you need a layered image (with separated body parts, for example) or you have to cut out them and patch "holes". After that, you apply various transformations, like zooming, panning, rotating, blurring, scaling and few special effects. These are basic functions for this kind of software, but to make it looking so good is a totally different story. No doubt, art skills are needed, not software craftsmanship

Excellent work guys.
Guild Wars is a great IP! It's like an emotional state all its own. And when I play I'm almost pure PVE. I just like to enjoy the world that has been created for me. And I love the concept art that went into it. So, I guess the hype machine for Guild Wars 2 is starting to ramp up. Or you guys wouldn't be allowed to post these things here. Nice work all!
Now THAT is what art direction in an MMO should look like.
