There is a whole bunch of art from the rest of the gang to see so check it out.

KEKAI I LOVE YOU BUDDY (artistically speaking!). I've watched the video as soon as it was out, and donno if you got my email or not :) During the video I managed to guess which ones were yours.

You leave me with no words Cake - you are my hero for sure. I feel I can paint for a month without stopping with such an amount of inspiration. Thank you so much man. If you have a minute can you tell me how much it took you (approximately) to make character concepts like that "CArmor2", or "CharrKnight" for instance?
thanks again for sharing.

Lovely pieces of art there! Really makes me wish I could draw as well. I suppose I'll have to stick to making films :p

And I find it great to check in here every now and then to get my daily potion of "blown away by the awesomeness of pure art".

Judging from the Part 1 of that video, I'd say that GW2 isn't only going to look great, but also sound great :)

The lack of sound in the second part got me a bit surprised though. Was something missing, or was the sound added to the first one as post-production work?

Thanks, from the Shiverpeaks. *cough* Sorry, Sweden. ^^

Haha. You guys are going to have to publish another art book. There's so much in the videos I haven't seen before, and it's all great stuff.
