Shaowei Liu, concept artist currently working at Crystal Dynamics, posted some very interesting concept arts of an unknown level, very asian oriented, as well as a 3D model of an vase that really fits in the TRIX world..... So is it, or is it not?

At the general demand, here's a thread to discuss the two very japanese style oriented artworks.

Those looks beautiful, if the game looks like that it would be really interesting. Seems like there will be no limits for you to explore and that there will be such a great atmosphere :)

I really like these concepts. I hope they are for TR9. If they are included and are kept as much like this as possible, it means the Japanese Island won't be all doom and gloom. There should be contrast, light and dark in the game. The second picture with the bridge in particular is so lush and colourful. And hopefully the areas will be as vast and explorable as they suggest.

I think there very good looking :tmb: Hopefully this means the entire island isn't one big gloomy dark place.

Does it remind you of Inuyasha? Beautiful Artwork though :jmp:

23-09-09, 22:16
yes it seems as thought it would be very different from the gloomy

if this is for TRO this looks to be morning time:D

I loovveee it, and that is a really neat pot...I can imagine it to have a fire lit in it or something:D

hhhmmm, did she work on legend concepts or just underworld?

because these concepts remind me of the ultra realistic style concepts for legend.........

I just got that fealing I had when I played china in TR2, this is magnificent, the concepts of TRIX are reaaaaaaaaly promising :D :D :D

I'm glad to see some people slowly being persudaded to the idea that the game isn't about being a copy of anything else but a true artistic release especially if these concepts are anything to go by. At this early stage, nothing concerns me. :)

↑ That can be our little secret :cln:
I'll leave the job to someone else though, but I think that if she is working for CD and TR IX she surely won't say much about it :)

I just got one question. Why are the Underworld screen shots in cheat mode? Lara is floating on some of them. I'm guessing they just used it to get the camera angle right? :confused: It just looks a bit unprofessional to me. Just a thought. :p

Love the artwork, I hope that the games looks a lot like them. I hope the game is based on them most importantly! :D

If it is TRO concepts I really hope they can convey the environmental diversity (forest, swamps, buildings and other stuff all in one place) shown in those shots to the game.

The pictures look like Hinamizawaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....~ *Don't know? Search Higurashi! :jumper:*

This is absolutely beautiful. I had to skip homework for this.

Lush beautiful and definitely something to look forward too. Looks like the next game will be exceeding our expectations after all. :jmp:

So what kind of unfriendly wildlife could we expect on an abandoned island off of Japan?

Mmmm...I am pretty sure that those concepts are from TR2 movie.The first one looks like the water mill on China where she gets her bike and stuff.

24-09-09, 14:40
Looks nice. Dosen't fit in with the horror-esque concept art we saw before, but i think we all just assumed it was gonna be a bit horror. Also i couldn't help but notice there is some Japanese looking features in there.

Still too early to say anything. It's pretty, sure.

But like Legend; pretty artwork, thrilling trailers but the final product = meh. :/
I only care for the final product.

I think he/ she was reffering to the scene with the water mill....

however I was not aware that was an incense burner...it looks like it would be..rather large to be a incense burner...:p

It's the new design of the pots that will contain the millions of artifacts they're planning to put in the game :eek:

Another Pot Raider!

Let's hope it's some sort of cauldron to make healing potions in, or better, just for decorating purposes (destroyable preferably :D)...

The artwork looks nice but I found it strange that she would be allowed to put them up on a website if they are from TR9, it feels like they should make an official statement first. :confused:

Mytly
24-09-09, 20:15
I hope these artworks are from TR9 - they look very pretty, and completely unlike the dark and "gritty" horror type environment seen in the earlier concepts, which I was dreading. If TR9 manages a good balance between beautiful areas set in daytime, and more horror style areas in the night, I think I could even reconcile myself to the "gritty" bits. ;)

Those are absolutely the most gorgeous concept arts, I have seen for a game! Even better than Underworld! :eek:

I think if they are for TRO they will look alot different ingame , if the include a day/ night cycle:D

Personally I doubt they have anything to do with TR9 so I would not be getting to fond of them. Lots of concepts are looked at in pre-production, they were probably done for TRU, or even Legend.

Nice concept arts, i hope they are for TR9;)
Thanks for shareing:hug::D

Wow, there some interesting looking concepts. I hope there actually for the game as the second one looks really nice. That looks like it would look pretty damn amazing in the actual game graphics. I want a dark game, but it does seem nice to see some pleasant looking levels.

Golden Laurel
26-09-09, 20:41
hmmm, its beautifull, but i want tombs too, and some like huge towers to climb, it seems to me like this game might be more flat, not allowing lara to climb as much as she did. but maybe im jsut a little paranoid. still cant wait for the game though (WE NEED OFFICALY NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Rai
26-09-09, 20:45
You have to remember that firstly, this is just a concept. IF they are part of TR9 the area seen here will only be a small part of the island. Most likely there ill be areas where Lara can climb away to her (and yours) heart's content. :)

From TRU or Legend, it's way too difficult. We know that some levels were cut off from both games, but we did never know it was Japanese related. And I believe if they were from Underworld or Legend, he/she (concept maker) would probably mention it.

It does seem flat, but nice and quaint. However I'd like to see more depth. I like looking off into the distance and seeing the adventure ahead of me. It's just 2 pics though so I'm not worried.

larafan25
27-09-09, 01:17
^welll they are only concepts, the concept artists don't think about what players want to see in the art, they focuse on how that certain area will look or an overall idea of that certain region:)
