CallingTheWildOnes 580x326 Guild Wars 2 Concept Art: Call of the Wild

Guild Wars has been a gave I’ve been with since the beginning, and the first character I ever made was a hunter. It should be no surprise that when I decided to do a piece of digital art inspired by the game that Call of the Wild was the instinctive choice.

Creating “Calling the Wild Ones”

To effectively do a piece of artwork for Call of the Wild I had to capture the essence of what it means to summon nature itself as an ally. I spent a lot of time working on colors and tonality to bring the concept to life and give each piece within the artwork depth and make it vibrant and engaging. I ultimately chose blue and gold to make up a good deal of the color scheme in order to not only contrast with the brown, but to really demonstrate the spiritual aspects of a Hunter and Ranger and the concept of summoning.
