Wild Hunt

Hello,

This is my first post here. 

Below is a concept I did for the MMO Warhammer:  The Age of Reckoning.  Actually this is an "unapproved" version of the concept.  I recieved a ton of "feedback" and had to make many changes before it was approved.  You can view the "approved" version here, if you wish:

Thanks for looking,

Eric Polak

I saw this on the Warhammer Online website and loved it! But now I think this one is so much better. Gotta love art direction sometimes huh? Haha!

your version is really great,
the WAR one really sucks... in comparison! =)

Looking great man, love your first interpretation :) makes me want to try another paintings !

I like parts about both paintings, but this one does have a more interesting and crankier character. Welcome to the blog!

Wow, this version is amazing. The other one has all the oomph taken out of it.

August 12, 2009 | Unregistered Commentergarg

Yeah, well.. there's really no comparison between the two eh. Your version kicks mighty ass.

WOW, your version is SO much better! Looks great, love the details.

Clearly, they just wanted you to neuter this guy. A shame since you'd done such a cool job with... well... with every single bit that they asked you to change. All that braided jowl-hair is so frikkin cool. Great job!

That looks really great! Just as everyone has already said, your version rocks!

Egads, what were they thinking?! The original was world's more interesting!

Hi there. I've write a short blog post about those artworks here - http://ilustracje-conceptart.blogspot.com/2009/08/na-pewno-chcesz-byc-profesjonalnym.html The orginal piece is so much better;)

Yeesh, they neutered it. Love your original vision.

The "revised" version is relatively boring. There's so much more exciting detail in your version. They must have forgotten what great art concepts look like when they see it. Or the focus group they're aiming for are easily impressionable children who are susceptible to nightmares...come on art director, it's called "War"hammer, not Peaceduckies.

Your original version is superior - better detail, dynamic, arresting. Amazing how a few changes makes such an enormous difference - basically looks like someone had you take a great painting and dumb it down for the masses. Speaking as one of the masses, I prefer great art with the great left in it.
