  1. 1. Which artistic style do you prefer for concept art?

    • similar to the Dwarf Ranger image
    • similar to Edair and Cadegund images
  2. 2. If these images were to be used as portraits, which would you prefer?

    • Dwarf Ranger style
    • Edair and Cadegund style


Recommended Posts

Time for another poll.

 

Since we already have concept art for PE following two distinct styles, I'm curious on what the the community's preference is.

In terms of art style, I prefer the dwarf ranger image.

 

In terms of actual art direction / character design, I like all three but would probably say Edair is my favorite.

You are comparing sketches to a painting.

 

Edit - Just to clarify, one is a concept sketch, the other a painted character portrait. Their is no difference in art direction, the dwarf is the art direction, the concept sketches are just that, concept.

voted the dwarf for portraits but the others for concept art. The dwarf looks better and more artistic, but the general purpose of concept art of a character is to actually show what it looks like right? The other style does a better job of that in my opinion.

I'm not sure it's fair to put them against each other. The Dwarf image looks more fleshed out artistically with it's coloring which the other two images lack.

Well, I picked the dwarf ranger cause it's a binary choice.

 

If I could ignore what Obsidian showed us so far and go for "Yo, let's hire an artist", these are the directions I would go for:

People will hate me for this, but I'm not particulary fond of Witcher's art direction. (Among other things)

I could.

There are many things I could criticize about The Witcher 2, but I think that in terms of general art direction and costume/armor design they are simply unmatched at the moment.

Same :).

 

So, why is Witcher's art direction so great? And please don't tell me it's *realistic*.

if those three are all from the witcher, I like both guys but the girl looks silly with her two crooked belts and the weird whatever that is over her shoulders. She looks sillier than Cadegund and her boobplate.

I don't particulary like you either, actually.

I don't mind it. I don't care about you at all, so it's not really a problem for me.

Because it's at the same time detailed, stylish and in may ways even historically accurate/believable (especially when it comes to armors)?

To be honest I like the first one as well. The third one just irks me.

 

Edit.^^^^^^^^ ok, then. I think I will remove myself from this as with nearly everything where Witcher is brought up. Isn't going to end well. (Though, I actually think it's a great game. Even if I disagree on a lot of aspects people praise it for)

No, the first one is from Wes Burt, an artist of Massive Black, a company that outsources art and 3D assets for game developers.

This concept, specifically, is for the Rohan-themed expansion of Lords of the Rings Online.

You can browse other concept arts he made for Lotro here:

http://kotaku.com/58...cters/gallery/1

 

All very cool stuff.

I wish I had a better source than Kotaku, but that's what a quick google search gave me as result.

 

These I really like. Well, I'm not that big a fan of some of the hair styles/faces. But, looks really great/awesome.

I stand corrected.

 

My intention was to ask on which type of image do people prefer.

So IMO the comparison isn't really useless, just bad working on my part.
