For Honor : Forest Clearing
A forest study made during the early production of For Honor.
Trying to exagerate the scale of the environment to make the characters feel vulnerable in this world.

For Honor : Arena - Great Oak
A tree design on For Honor for an early propotype map, done in 2013.

Playing with the abundance of roots to suggest a very ancient oak that took years to grew up, in this high altitude scenery (you have to imagine this part : ).

Photoshop (2013)

For Honor : Village Under Attack
An early concept art done during the pre-production of For Honor : a rather classic battle scene taking place in a viking location.

I started this image with a dark background and brighter houses in fire, but it was lacking strengh, so I decided to invert the effect by having instead a bright background in fire and dark-silhouetted houses, to bring a better effect and contrast.

Done in 2013

For Honor : High Lands
A concept art of the 'Waste Land' area in For Honor.
Unlike my personal work, I tend to use photos and textures when in production, in order to work faster and to bring richer details in the image. 
The fundamentals remain the same though : focusing on composition, lighting and color to provide the right emotion.

I did this in 2014 , and I hope it's not too late to share !

For Honor, the video game I'm presently working on has finally been announced !
ForHonor : Courtyard's Battle by MaxD-Art
To help understanding the process of concept art involved in the creation of the environments for the game, please check the article below :

Note : The website will ask you the first time you visit to enter you date of birth, this is because some videos of the game are rated 18+ because of the violence of some action scene, but nothing in the article about the concept art should offend you !

Enjoy the read !
