Hey Guys! First of all, I know this post is coming out of left field. You could say it’s more exciting that way? But I guess a proper introduction is needed. The name’s McMaxxis. Just call me Max. I’ve been on the team for quite a while in the background, with other new recruits you have not yet met. I have been doing some vital work along with the other artists since the pixels were remixed. I’d like to begin my post with saying thank you for your patience with us all this time. You guys are amazing. We are trying our best to put that signature Itoi aesthetic in this game.

It’s a delicate process to compile a concept art update, mainly because 99 percent of everything I do is strictly confidential. The concepts are meant for games, not for hype. It’s kind of frustrating in that manner, as all the really cool stuff that I’d love to show off has to be kept under wraps until the game’s release. Still, I think concept art is an interesting subject, and I’m sure none of you would object to more goodies- even if it’s just a taste of what’s to come.
In trying to come up with a way to spoil you all without spoiling you all, I have decided on 4 images to show off just three of the many types of concept art it’s my job to produce.
