I'm not always passionate about some of the games I play, but when I am, one of the first things I do after re-watching the best cutscenes and listening to the music score is looking at the concept art. I want to start by posting some of the recent images for Mabinogi Heroes/Vindictus's new 7th class character Hurk (Mabinogi Heroes name, Vindictus name not yet decided as of this post.)
Some things I think about when looking at concept art is 'why didn't they make a costume out of this or that' if a video game has alternate costumes for playable characters. Other times, me and perhaps a few others may end up finding inspiration for certain designs that end up influencing the final product of something being created by my hands or theirs. Concept art also allows us to have somewhat of an insight on what the developers were thinking about at the time, and possibly what their original intentions were and why they had to go a certain direction.
So without further ado, here is Hurk, from Mabinogi Heroes/Vindictus. Oh, and I want to show you DmC Dante's original jacket for DmC Devil May Cry, a jacket I felt that should have been use for his Neo Dante costume, and two other concept art images from the game too.
Feel free to post some of your favorite concept arts if you'd like.
