Apparently I can't upload to the gallery without breaking everything. When Inde wakes up I'll nudge her to put them on there.
Good find Shew!
Wait... what? I can only guess what this is of, but I'm seeing skyscownrs in the background there. I don't think any cultures we know about have those. The whole thing looks exceedingly modern, actually.
Is this really GW2? I can't help but wonder if it has something to do with Kaineng City/Cantha. If that is the subject of the artwork, then it honestly surprised me.
That said, what you see in concept art doesn't always make it into the game... at least not exactly.
Description from the thread (which I've edited into a couple of posts above):
The second piece is a selection for this year's Into the Pixel exhibition. It also earned the Master Award in Expose 7. It's an exploratory piece that was less concerned with the Guild Wars setting but rather scale and energy of the environment.
I really wouldn't read a lot into the content of that piece.
oh, and you forgot the dredge caves
Where does it say they are Dredge caves?
