We've featured the concept art of Guild Wars 2 here twice before, showcasing the talents of concept artists Levi Hopkins and Kekai Kotaki. Today, then, let's do it a third and final time.

Think of it as a trilogy, with the final act the contributions of the series' Creative Director, Daniel Dociu.


Dociu, born in Romania, has been living in the US since 1990, and prior to his work on the Guild Wars series was employed at studios like Square, Zipper and EA.

He's something of a legend in the world of concept art, having been recently honoured with EXPOSÉ'S Grand Master Award for lifetime achievement, putting him alongside the likes of Syd Mead (Blade Runner), Ralph Macquarrie (Star Wars) and HR Giger (Alien).

Oh, and fun fact: he was also the face model for Half-Life 2's Father Grigori!
