Enormous monsters. A haunting landscape. Mysterious figures. All hallmarks of classic PS2 game Shadow of the Colossus, all the stars of this batch of concept art for the game.

While there's been art floating around for a while now (the game was released in 2005, after all), courtesy of promotional material and books from Shadow's launch, it's never been concentrated in one place like this. FOr that, we've got the translators at GlitterBerri to thank, who have scanned in not only art for the game's characters and environments, but most exciting, unseen and never-used Colossi sketches.

Also keep an eye out for logo design and some icon work, drawing from the team's work on the game's predecessor, Ico.
