I don’t exactly remember when I started working on this one but I was big into playing Guild Wars 2 at the time. Hence the title and the inspiration for this one. Great game and exceptionally detailed world you seriously can get lost in.

When I started this pic a long time ago (almost 2 years ago), I haven’t had done any big Fantasy projects in a while and focussed entirely on Scifi. So it was about time to expand a little and try something different. The outcome looks fine I guess. Played with terrains and a colourful daytime atmosphere. Right now I’m actually very tempted to rework the colours to be a little more reduced but that’s the mood I’m in these days. Back then I found them to be right and therefor I will keep them.

Technically it’s business as usual. Vue to create a plate and Photoshop to refine, composite, overpaint and fix things.

OMG YES! To this day, I have quite literally Memories of Ascalon. Years ago, when I started playing Guild Wars (1, so, Prophecies), the design of Ascalon was so provoking, it made a huge impression on me as a young gamer. No other game has impressed me as much as Guild Wars, both in design as in gameplay.

I never played GW1 but noticed that they implemented some rewards for GW1 players within GW2. Found that pretty cool. Like a little thank you to the die hard fans. The game design works fantastic with all the dynamic events and everything. A system I hoped for in Borderlands 2. Since BL2 literally screams for a dynamic events system for some really good coop play. But no... they used the 'stone age' system from Borderlands 1. Still good games with awesome characters. From what I heard there's an expansion planned for GW2... that may be the point when I'll go back and risk a look again. =)

Haha yea, so I've heard as well. But dunno, I really got bumbed because of the pvp. I dunno, for some time the pvp in gw2 seemed pretty cool, but if you aren't up to date and visit back a while later, the meta COMPLETELY changed. Like, it was a total different game and they even were mad at me for not running the exact the current meta, so I was like: ok, what kind of shit is this? The pvp in gw1 was maybe a bit simpler, but way more fun, in the end. Also, the game is called Guild Wars.. where the fuck is Guild vs Guild pvp then? :D They had this in gw1, and it was great fun. Guilds don't really seem to be the main focus in gw2. It's more about spamming content, which is actually pretty nice as well, if you invest a lot of time playing it, but to an outsider (or an inactive), it feels a bit too much, you know?
