Guerrilla Games' New Character Artist's Amazing Art Shows that They Have Great Talent for Monsters

Guerrilla Games has been hiring a lot lately, bringing new blood into the team in preparation of the launch of its new IP, and one of those new hires is the extremely talented Benjamin Erdt.
Erdt graduated at the Vancouver Film School in 2012 and almost immediately landed a job at Guerrilla as a Junior Character artist in 2013, losing the “junior” in the title definitely fast, two months ago, and looking at his art it’s not difficult to understand why.

Bring on the sci-fi game!!! So eager to see their new IP. Gamescon isn't that far off

I'm really looking forward to seeing their new game too.

I actually really enjoyed Killzone Shadow Fall and don't understand all the hate it gets from some people. It's not the best game I've ever played, but it was fun and it looked amazing. I think Guerrilla did a really great job on the game considering it was a launch game.

I can't wait to see what they can do with a new IP. I'm glad it is supposedly a sci-fi game.

Couldn't agree more. The single player campaign wasn't the best in the series, despite having some great moments, but it was quite an accomplishment considering they were developing the game well before they even had a final devkit available.

Never thought I'd say it, but I wish it had a more "COD-like" multiplayer set up, because that lack of instant gratification with the frequent rewards and leveling seems to have hurt it's support.

Gameplay wise, it's one of the best multiplayer FPS' I've ever just 'feels' fantastic. Zero autoaim and phenomenal registration with accurate hitboxes. Just extremely satisfying gunplay overall.

I disliked kzsf on my first playthrough, but after the second I thought it was alright.

XiSasukeUchiha1667d ago

This beauty art is what you called Sony AAA 1st party :)

HonestDragon1667d ago

I agree. Those character models look amazing! Bring on the new game!

PaleMoonDeath1667d ago

Guerrilla can design villain's damned well.

ravinash1666d ago

How do you know these arn't the good guys?

Whitefire1667d ago

These types of articles are more like fanboys rooting for their team, and showing anything about them just because they like Sony. Do we really need an article about concept art, of which we know wont be in a game at all, simply because they work for Guerrilla Games?

Bathyj1667d ago

Did you really need to come in here for no other reason than to tell us that? What do you care if someone is excited for something?

morganfell1667d ago

His work looks amazing. And seeing how it will influence Guerrilla's new IP it is definitely news.

Just mark his comment as OT.

Whitefire1667d ago

It never bothered me if someone is excited. I'm just saying these articles aren't really needed. They don't do much. Also don't use parts of my sentence when I literally just said it. It looks stupid.

Bathyj1667d ago

Well Im just saying your comment wasnt really needed and didnt do much.

Damn, I did it again. I AM stupid.

ravinash1666d ago

"these articles aren't really needed. They don't do much".

They show us what some of the talent that you would otherwise not see are able to do.
It would be such a shame for this work not to be seen as it's really good.

I'd much rather see this than the endless my version is better than your version items you get on here.

Appreciate an artists work, either Microsoft or Nintendo could show something just as nice and be just as appreciated, show respect man.

Whitefire1667d ago (Edited 1667d ago )

I never denied they looked good, (which they do) nor am I disrespecting the person who made them. I'm talking about these types of articles. Don't paint people as disrespectful/against companies because they have an opinion.

PaleMoonDeath1667d ago (Edited 1667d ago )

@ Whitefire,

Throwing fireballs at Sony, Guerrilla games, and people who enjoy both, pretty disrespectful and out of the blue right? the sheer number of disagrees follow upon what I mean, opinions are sweet as can be, but attacking three groups of folk at once is disrespectful dude.

elninels1667d ago

I like concept art in general. If it was black tusk, or Nintendo ead (oooh boy) concept art I'd be down to see it too.

Kotaku often shares various concept art pieces from devs. Its pretty cool to see their imagination roam.

JWiLL5521667d ago

Yeah...why would a site dedicated to videogames show off the work of some of the industry's most talented artists?


Silly gameAr1667d ago (Edited 1667d ago )

I'm so tired of comments like yours and all of these dup accounts.If you hate to see people give props to a dev or company that you don't like, don't click on the article.

solidjun51667d ago

yep. It's funny how his account is "active" after 3 months. It's like they remembered "oh yea, I got another account."

I find it also funny he's railing against concept art related to videogames on a videogame website.

CrowbaitBob1666d ago

I remember growing up with Nintendo Power and EGM and any other video game magazines I could get my hands on. Back in those days I just loved absorbing as much gaming information as I could, including screenshots, concept art and even just text describing early concepts of potential games that may not ever see the light of day. That's what I call gaming news, and I love it.

As a gamer, this is exactly the kind of thing I want to see every day of my life, as opposed to the onslaught of crappy opinion pieces posted by internet trolls that somehow passes the review process on N4G.

This concept art is something that actually exists, was actually created by a game developer, and could inspire elements of an actual game in the future. If this isn't worthy of N4G then WTF is the point of N4G?
