A Handful Of Beautiful Guild Wars 2 Concept Art

Dreamy concept art clouds

Poking about on the Guild Wars 2 website yesterday I found their repository of concept art. I say “found” as if that was hard. It’s literally right there in a link on a menu. Whatever, I hadn’t seen it before. That’s because the release date for Guild Wars 2 was just before a fashion week and so my time was being monopolised by imminent catwalks. I remember Quinns talking enthusiastically about plant people and how he had made TOAST! Imagine, Pip – toast! while I was trying to work out how to get back from Bletchley Park in time to fish my high heels from my office drawer before an obligatory show. ANYWAY. Here are my favourites. No, this isn’t about the game nor its upcoming expansion. It’s entirely because I’m interested in concept art and how it can evoke a mood and a sense of place or character even when it’s not the style the game ends up taking.

In short there are a bunch of fantastic images I’d missed and I wanted to share them in case you’d missed them too:
