Furthing confirming to the few doubters of the gaming community that the concept art and screenshots that DAC released a few weeks ago are totally legit, Interplay has released a "new" concept image that DAC has already released! Interplay calls it "Frozen Shipyard," while DAC just called it "Shipyard." Check it out below or at the Interplay forums.
The artist, Serg Souleiman, has also said a few things about his concept art:
I just wanted to clarify the purpose of these exploratory concept art pieces that I been posting.
They were really early pre-production images that we were exploring with Jason Anderson at the beginning of the project.
The purpose of images is to "explore" ideas, settings, color, mood, environments and to see how far we can push them visually. Some may be way out of the realm of possibilities, others have elements that will be used and/or expanded on.
These images also help the designers like Chris Taylor to fuel design ideas and stories.
These images are not the actually in game art, or anything in that nature. They were randomly selected to show the fans and see what the reaction would be.
I feel it’s a good way of keeping in touch with the fans. It's great to read your “constructive reasoning" and input on these images.
There are many more images that we have that you will one day get to see.
On a final note;
Think of the concepts as notes, or drafts before one was to write a book. Not all of these note or ideas end up in the final book but they do serve a purpose.
Thank you all for all the feedback.
No, thank you!
