When we were contacted by a representative of Titan Books and asked if we’d like some exclusive images of some concept art from DC Universe Online we didn’t have to think about it. Concept images from one of the first huge releases of 2011, a console (as well as PC) MMO based in our beloved DC Universe? Yes please.
So here they are, drawn by the legendary comic book artist, Jim Lee – who is my personal favourite comics artist and one of my favourite artists in any genre. The images include concepts for a pumped up version of Doomsday, facial expression reference designs and a re-imagining of Metropolis.
There’s also a 3D capture of the final model for Doomsday modelled by David Russ at SOE.
If you like this concept art, or indeed the final versions that made their way into the game, then you might be interested in the Limited Edition Icons book of Jim Lee’s art from DC and Wildstorm books.
My pre-Christmas hinting seemed to go unnoticed so I think I’ll break out the plastic and order it myself right now…
