If I saw this concept art of Sonic 2 when I was younger my mind would’ve exploded imagining all these “lost levels” and how the time travel would work and stuff. I’d be lost in my own imagination for whole weeks


This Klonoa concept art I think was thrown around for the first game? I think it eventually became Leorina in Lunatea’s Veil (the PS2 sequel) and it makes me so sad that it was changed so much because I feel this is absolutely perfect. I wanna play a game about her.

related to that Sonic 2 concept art I posted before:

I feel like we were robbed that the Death Egg Zone never looked anything like this in either incarnation of it

Also a bunch of Sonic sketches from Toei Animation for the SCD intro

i also love when character concept art for clothing and hair in particular uses this “faceless” mannequin style, as seen here on maya from parasite eve

A Boy and His Blob

The remake, that is.

Shadow of the Colossus

Silent Hill: Cold Heart

This was before they added the characters from the original Silent Hill game and called it Shattered Memories.

And this is from after it became Shattered Memories. (There are several pieces that I like but this one of Lisa Garland is my favorite.)

Love Hontani’s Grandia work.

Justine!!! I might’ve liked a build on this Feena concept over the, more typically cute final (which does appeal to a Nadia-likeness).

There are Panzer Dragon guidebooks (1, Zwei (“Die Welt von Panzer Dragoon Zwei”), couldn’t find one for Saga) that have bits of concept art and hi-res model/environment renders mixed in.

the guild wars series always showed environmental concept art (along with a title card) whenever it loaded a new area instance. often the most exciting thing about discovering a location was just seeing what the new loading screen would look like

guild wars loading screens are such a good rebuttal to people who claim that photobashing isn’t good

oh yeah, right?

i was admiring the single photographic wheel included in this piece of concept art; whereas every other cog is a crude sketch

(suffice it to say nothing in the game ever looked as cool as this stuff)
