    Default Concept Art

    I'm not sure who did the bulk of the concept art but it reminds me heavily of the icewind dale/baldurs gate/neverwinter nights portrait art. Is it the same fella?

    I've never played those games, but I'm absolutely in love with this concept art. It's one of the main reasons I'm psyched for this game! Good art director = compelling environments and characters.

    The environments fit the concept are pretty damn well. In this, I'm really impressed.

    Now do the same with the characters (and character creation), NPCs, occasionally the mobs, and the cities/towns (not the broad view of things, but the details, and the interiors (or lack thereof) and the 'life'), and the art will be just where it should be. Getting there! I hope there are updates even after launch for this to continue to improve and bring a feeling of fantasy to Telara.







    More of this feeling please . Getting there though! I see especially with the PC and NPC models that there is a real lack of variety and personality going on, but also the ROOM for this is be improved on over time. I hope that's being done!

    I loved that art!

    But look at this - from Rift races page , the Dwarf



    Now I can bet the very same picture is selectable portrait in Icewind Dale 2

    Anyone cares to confirm ?

    I'm not sure about all of the art, but at least some of it was done by John ****enson.

    A wiki is only as good as its contributors won't you help?
