After the recently leaked boss art for FromSoft’s latest “Soulsborne” title, an artist who worked on the still-singular trailer has released Elden Ring concept art.
“Most of these [artworks] were made for internal discussion at Digic Pictures between the Art Director, Director, Producer and Leads. When they were happy with something they would then share those concepts with the client. In the end FromSoftware would more or less provide us with most of the concept art in any case”, he says.
Sternstrom understood the gravity of posting Elden Ring concept art to the r/Eldenring subreddit, infamous on the Internet for the long silence since Elden Ring’s announcement in 2019. As a result, her urged fans not to use his work as the bases for any new grand Elden Ring theories.
“You can read into the concept art as much as you like, but I really have no knowledge of the game”, he clairifies.
It should be noted that unlike the last concept art reveal, this isn’t a leak. Digic Productions themselves have posted up their showreel of their involvement with the project, meaning that any NDA barring the studio from talking about Elden Ring has likely lapsed.
Redditors have asked Sternstrom as much in the Reddit thread where he posted these, however as of writing he hasn’t commented on the matter. Considering he’s using his real name and Artstation though, it seems likely.
