GOD OF WAR 3!



So Sony just did a whole big press announce thing where they showed off the extended full trailer as well as actual gameplay to the press (of which only the trailer was released to the public- wait till you see the gameplay- crazy!). Coinciding with the big press announcement, God of War III is also currently featured in two magazines- Game Informer and PSM3 (a French magazine). I was fortunate enough to be able to have my art featured on both covers. So here's the artwork I did for the covers with and without the logo and type. The articles inside also showed some of my concept art so here it is for you to check out. But if you get a chance check out the actual magazines, cool? Oh, and I included some of the concept mood boards I did for the trailer too.

I can't wait for everyone to be able to see and play the actual game. The guys over here at Sony Santa Monica are truly some of the most talented guys out there in the business. I think people will be blown away once they see the final game. But until then you can only see some of the concept art. Showing concept art is like a big tease to what the final product will be. For example, wait till you see the Chimera actually moving around and going crazy on Kratos. It's awesome! Until then enjoy the tease! =>

Elías said...

Hi Andy Park!

My name is Elias and I am a big fan of God of war, but I'm more fan of you.

When I heard you were involved in the artists in this saga, I was very excited.

I love your illustrations are a pass. I'm studying Fine Arts and I would love to someday be able to get what you do, it's my dream. So for me you are worthy of admiration. Your work inspires me and makes me want to do better every day. You are very good

So I wanted to give you my greetings, and still, you are very very good.

Greetings artist, a beloved fan

P.D. Forgive my English but I did not manage very well

Andy Park said...

Edward- haha- thanks man! Silvestri is a top notch guy. I had the best time working over at Top Cow. Thanks for the comments dude!

Jackson- Thanks! One day...one day!

Charles- Thanks Charles! I had tons of fun painting that one up.

Anthony- Thanks! I appreciate it!

Joel- Thanks Joel! I love painting up those kind of images- esp when it's not over a 3D base (those aren't fun).

Elias- Thanks for the kind words. They're totally appreciated. And your English is fine. => Good luck with your studies!

Mimi Cortazar said...

Great cover's!

Gavin said...

Hey Andy, I just played the GoW demo - incredible! The concepts really shined through with the moody animations. It was actually quite unreal to see all the cool concepts realised in the level. The shot with the huge molten creature that you did with Jung Park was some sight to see!

Hope things are well and congratulations man, only a few months left! The game looks so great I can't wait to pick it up myself :) I hope you can show more concepts in due time!

Hey Andy, it was good to finally meet you in person. Hope you had a good year.

Keep in touch.

Mr. Park, I have to say these cannot even be described with words. They're divine!

I do have a question which I would like to ask you: what qualifications do you need to be accepted as a concept artist? I'm currently first year in high school and I really want to become at least a bit of what you are now.

You're my idol!

B.W.
