July 2018 Community Showcase

With the release of the latest Living World episode, “Long Live the Lich,” a number of players have had a chance to experience the amazing roller beetle mount. And, as you might expect, creative folks have gone wild in creating some very cool art.

So let’s consider this month’s Community Showcase an opportunity for a theme, with these examples—and many others on our official forums and Tumblr—showing a lot of love for our friend Petey!

commanderyes is pretty excited about their beetle bike friend!

Chaz Targrin’s charr seems a little awed by the roller beetle acceleration.

Look at these great portraits and sketches by artkitt-creations!

Novakric enjoyed some sick tricks on their new mount.

Graspingdark says their Commander goes really fast.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these compositions as much as we enjoyed presenting them. It’s always a thrill to show off some of the amazing works of art and imagination that players from around the world create and share with us.

If you’re an artist, crafter, or maker of Guild Wars 2–related creations of any kind, please consider sharing your work on the official Guild Wars 2 Tumblr (easy submission guidelines here) or in our official Community Creations subforum.

June 2018 Community Showcase

We had a blast showing off lots of fantastic fan art during our early June Community Showcase Live broadcast. Our dev guest, Katelyn Isaacson, represented two firsts, as she was the first representative from the ArenaNet Audio Team and the first CSL guest who is a member of the ArenaNet intern program. You can catch the video of the June CSL here.

Let’s take a look at more amazing creations by our community of players.

This noble-looking charr is one of five terrific portraits by artist snoonstime. You’ll find the other four in the linked Tumblr post.

c3832tumblr_p9zdlg548a1uhvik4o1_1280-590

Artist space-squib created this image of Mottal discovering some gems. They called Mottal “the cutest little geologist in all of Tyria.”

ff424space-squib-590x590.png

Creating an image that captures the sylvari vibe and incorporates so many lovely variations of green, kicuka says they are quite the fan of Trahearne…and of his eyes.

e3654trahearne-590x827.png

Artist gaymmanders wishes everyone a happy Pride Month in this image of two commanders.

17ccatumblr_p9okazlJlu1wxaiefo1_1280-590

There’s a great feel of fluid motion in this portrait of Luxerik, a thief using Death’s Retreat, by tsuiraku-o.

beff6tumblr_p97vqwtHRR1rm61fio1_1280-590

Here’s a double treat: you can watch a speedpaint that artist gold-storm offered of their mesmer, Lyknvi, and view the finished product here.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these compositions as much as we enjoyed presenting them. It’s always a thrill to show off some of the amazing works of art and imagination that players from around the world create and share with us. Upcoming fan art projects include a blog post in late July or early August, and our next Community Showcase livestream will be in August as well.

If you’re an artist, crafter, or maker of Guild Wars 2–related creations of any kind, please consider sharing your work on the official Guild Wars 2 Tumblr (easy submission guidelines here) or in our officialCommunity Creations subforum.
