That's not raven form. It's just concept art.

However, I am in LOVE with this:

It's what monks should have looked like in Guild Wars.

This is early concept art of Dwayna's Regalia

Several of these images were seen in the GDC 2010 Art Presentation.

WRONG.

The concept armor above is in the Guild Wars 2 section of his website.

That costume armor is from Guild Wars 1.

I'm expecting something else.

If you look, you'll see the Grenth version is also in the GW2 section despite being a GW1 costume.

No, I'm talking about the Armours.
The Charr profession was speculated to be the Gunner Profession and the armour in the Concept Art seems to fit that style that best from what I've seen.

Also, The Person in the Concept has something on it's back. And to me it seems like the Charr has too.

They don't look equal, just look at the girl... they're completely different. But I could be wrong :(

I would love having that armor being a "Blue Mace Lady", but it could be a Mesmer as well. But again, in their "Personal Profile Questions" various professions ask you something about your headpiece, and this one has wings so it fits with the blue concept art. Perhaps masks aren't restricted to Mesmers only...

This is a very interesting piece of our profession puzzle, or maybe not :zzz:

The design that was implemented was Kristen Perrys which is why it looks different.

Just to toss an option out there...could we not see the costumes for Dwayna and Grenth become armors? I mean they were popular, but clearly they didnt translate all the cool from the concept art to the designs, GW2 would possibly allow that.

I'm willing to bet that we will see something like those 2 outfits as armors from dungeons...

Yeah if I had to guess Kristen has the biggest control of the player/profession armor and looks, not Kekai.

Nothing says that armor can't be in GW2 as well, hopefully looking more like the concept art.

Kekai has updated his website with some very awesome GW2 art which has not appeared anywhere else before. Thought this would be of interest to many.

Oh, yes!  It is very much, of interest.  Thanks.

It seems like somewhere there was a statement indicating the winged helmets were part of a special group, Seraph, or somethihng?

They both look like Norn armor to me, so I doubt it. Also, one is more nature themed while the other has this death theme going on.

Well the blacker one is almost certainly human, norns have a much more broad chest.

and i made this

and I'm not claiming to know for sure that they are from the same dungeon set, but imo, they certainly could be. They each share some common features, but at the same time hold characteristics from their own race. It's also possible, because these were made by the same person, that the similarities are just a coincidence of the artist's style.

I dunno, it's just something to think about.

My opinion means nothing, but it would be that they're two different (area) armor sets.  The material and overall construction just looks too dissimilar.  One appears to be a steel like weave while the other is stacked onyx/obsidian-ish...
