  6. New The Last of Us Concept Doesn’t Mean Sequel, but Is Still Lovely


    Marek Okon, a concept artist who worked on The Last of Us, presents this imagined look at what the game's co-protagonist Ellie might look like a few years down the road. He stresses that it's just "fan art" (for whatever fan art means when you worked on the actual game), not any kind of teaser for a potential new The Last of Us game. Still, it's quite lovely, and you can visit his Facebook page to read the little scenario he imagines it depicting. Last we heard of Naughty Dog's plans for the game, the studio was taking some time to consider whether their next project would be a TLoU sequel or prequel, or a brand new game entirely. Previously in The Last of Us

  8. Marvel’s Assembling a Universe Gives Us Our First Look at Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver

    Instead of Agents of SHIELD, last night ABC aired an hour long special Assembling a Universe, that provided updates from producers and directors on the direction and planning at work in the production of Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, and The Avengers: Age of Ultron. We've collected some of the concept art and screenshots (from Edgar Wright's secret proof-of-concept short for the Ant-Man movie) here, including the first depictions of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, the first mutants to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  9. Unused Concept Art Shows Thor 2 Almost Introduced Valkyrie

    old gods do new jobs

    Concept Artist Josh Nizzi shared a number of unused art he produced for Thor: The Dark World, and among them are three progress shots of Valkyrie, or at the very least, a Valkyrie. While Vaklyrie is a superhero with a long history in the Marvel universe, and many incarnations within mortal women, she first appeared as about as literal a straw feminist as you can get: an pawn of the Enchantress created to divide the Avengers along gender lines by encouraging the Wasp, Medusa, Black Widow, and Scarlet Witch to embrace women's lib. In retrospect, I assumed the issue would be kind of painful to read, but it turns out there's no better response than laughter to the existence of a comic in which someone smashes through a window and yells "UP AGAINST THE WALL, MALE CHAUVINIST PIG" at the Hulk. That's a line that's really lost on any color of Hulk except perhaps this one. It's a pity Valkyrie (or a Valkyrie, or the Valkyries, I'm not picky) didn't get her debut in The Dark World, but really the movie had enough on its plate already. Maybe next time. You can find two more pieces of concept art, including one with her winged horse Aragorn, at Nizzi's page.

  10. Concept Art for the Canceled Game Star Wars 1313 Has Surfaced and Makes Us Angry It Was Canceled

    Maybe the game will be digitally reinserted as a Jedi ghost?

    If we weren't already upset enough that Star Wars 1313 got canceled, a concept artist who worked on the game recently posted a bunch of the work he did for it on his personal website. It's an interesting—and slightly painful— look into a Star Wars game that looked awesome, but one that we will never get.

  11. Here’s a Bunch of Concept Art From the American-Set Akira to Remind You That Someone Thought it Was a Good Idea


    Yeah, you'd just managed to forget that Warner Bros. was developing a live action Akira movie removed entirely from its context of postwar, post-nuclear horror Japan and set instead in New York with white American actors in the leading roles. Now that you've remembered, you might as well feed that anger this concept art.

  12. This Hobbit Concept Art Will Make Your Hometown Look Really Boring

    There And Back Again

    I would absolutely want to live in Middle Earth. I mean, sure you have orcs and goblins and a force of ultimate evil or two. And perhaps worse than all of that: No internet. But also: Hobbit holes. Picturesque woods and mountains. Hobbit holes. Cities built around waterfalls. Hobbit holes! This concept art for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, by John Howe and Alan Lee, serves as an excellent reminder of how beautiful it is over there. Meanwhile my city has dog poo and trash-filled gutters in abundance. *sigh*

  13. Robocop’s New Suit Doesn’t Look Like Batman Anymore

    A couple of months ago, we were shocked and disturbed when images leaked from the set of the upcoming Robocop remake revealed that the cyborg hero's iconic look had been replaced by a black-plated suit strongly resembling Batman's costume in the Christopher Nolan trilogy. We're now happy to find that new concept art has surfaced, indicating that Robocop will, somewhere down the line, get some silver armor that looks more like the original than a generic "super-suit."

  16. A Plethora of Assassin’s Creed Concept Art Created 3 Years Before the Game’s Release

    Ubisoft has a cache of Assassin's Creed concept art, giving us fans of hidden blades and parkour assassination an eye-pleasing treat. Though the original game was released back in 2007, the concept art comes from 2004 and shows off more of a Prince of Persia style, a female assassin, and much more. Interestingly, the concept art was created so long before the game idea was cemented that the team thought they were creating a Prince of Persia spin-off. Each piece of concept art was drawn by Khai Nguyen, who seemed to have a pretty good idea what the game should look like, considering the final build turned out fairly similar to the 2004 concept art. Check out the rest of the pretty art below the break.
