TDSpiral shared a host of Daniel Chavez's work for Destiny that the artist has recently released. Some beautiful and mind-titillating stuff in there! Warning: lots of large images.
B.Org regular, The Lionheart, showed us one of his coworker's woodburnings that highlights the game that's on all of our minds right now. Pretty neat!
CM Roach cobbled together a montage of the animated concept art we've seen sprinkled throughout Bungie videos and set it to some ambient music. Nice way to immerse yourself in the art direction for two minutes. Originally sighted on Reddit by Lord Owen.
A couple of days ago, Missoula radio station KMMS interviewed Paul McCartney (who was in town for a concert) - it's a 12-minute interview, and four of those minutes are devoted to Paul's involvement with Destiny! Amazing. It's a great interview in its entirety, but if you're short on time, the Destiny portion begins at about 6:25. One of the most fascinating tidbits buried in his discussion was the fact that McCartney was asked (and agreed) to contribute an entire song!
Eventually they said, "we'd like a song." So that was exciting, you know, I said, "Okay, show me the ballpark, what's the song going to follow, what's going to happen?" So that was great, and we did that.
They don't explain where they got this info... but we'll keep our eyes open and report any new details.
Update: Looks like AotF found this in the New York Times. Huh.
Deej just posted a hoedown of renders for you visual-minded people out there (and even if you're not one of those, you'll probably still find this cool). There's orthographics aplenty here, with guns and armor of all different shapes and sizes, and from every angle! A few more can be found in the Destiny media gallery as well. Fan artists, collectors, and catalogers, get to downloading.
INSANEdrive brought our attention to some fan-created minimalist box art for Destiny, both PS4 and Xbox One versions. You'll find links to all flavors in this post at Bungie.net (thanks, DaDerga) - really nice stuff.
Environment Artist Jason Sussman talked to GamesBeat about the art style for Destiny - it's a great piece! Reading his answers, I was reminded of the art style (and the rationale) behind Halo, back in the day - the vibrant colors, the conscious choice between 'bleak' and simply 'abandoned'. Go read! Thanks, Xenos.
Bungie.net user Irish Liberty unleashed a salvo of gorgeous wallpapers for everyone to download and share. You can find all five images in this gallery, so adorn your desktop with the textures of your favorite class!
Deviant art user shrimpy99 made this stunningly simple Destiny poster that would look great printed out as alternate box art. I'd take credit for finding this, but naturally Hedge pointed it out over a week ago!
Our own Beorn decided to recreate some banners hanging in the Tower in a Destiny screenshot released last week, in a way appropriate for phone and desktop wallpaper. You have a LOT of choices - go take a look!
Dan De Board needed to model something for his portfolio - and he settled on a Destiny weapon. I'm not a 3D expert - but I think it's fantastic! Check out his renders - and (in response to another fan's request) some of the underlying work!
The big Destiny news of the week, so far, has been the firing of Marty O'Donnell as Audio Director; neither side is offering details on the event (though Bungie has confirmed that Marty's music will remain in the game). We had a chance to talk to Marty this morning - and while there aren't a lot of answers for fans who want to know what happened behind closed doors, it was comforting to hear Marty's positive comments about the game, and about the people he's worked alongside for so many years. More than anything, we want the best for both sides - we're fans of Bungie as well as of its games, and we count many of their employees among our friends. Go read.
I'm not at all sure what to write here - so I'll present the facts, as we know them. Last night, Marty O'Donnell, the man behind Bungie's music since 2000 (well, 1997, really), tweeted this:
I'm saddened to say that Bungie's board of directors terminated me without cause on April 11, 2014.— Marty O'Donnell (@MartyTheElder) April 16, 2014
And a little later, Bungie put up a post on Bungie.net that doesn't really explain anything, but does suggest that the Tweet is not just a joke.
For more than a decade, Marty O'Donnell filled our worlds with unforgettable sounds and soundtracks, and left an indelible mark on our fans. Today, as friends, we say goodbye. We know that wherever his journey takes him, he will always have a bright and hopeful future.
We wish him luck in all his future endeavors.
Whatever this means, it saddens me, personally.
Again, good ol' Hedgem0ny does the hard part for us and we reap the rewards of a fancy news post. This time he brings us a beautiful digital painting inspired by Destiny by Jorge Jacinto called "Arrival".
... Is the title of this piece by VulcanRaptor as posted on his DeviantArt (which also showcases some Bungie-style Halo fanart as well). I love the fun, free-flowing style of the piece! Click the image to see it in its natural habitat.
Hedge pointed out that the image I posted earlier today by Wahine808 was one of the entrants in the Spring Art Contest held by Bungie.net group "Art and Stuff". We missed this when it was first announced, but First Place went to The Cyan Hawk for crafting the colorful Hunter piece posted above. Congrats! Be sure to check out the full gallery of winners over in this forum thread. (Happy now, Hedge?)
Destiny Time! C'mon, grab your friends; we'll go to very distant lands. With Jake the Titan and Finn the Hun-ter, the fun will never end; it's Destiny Time! (KL45H is the mind behind this awesome Adventure Time crossover, and you can check out the full image over on Deviant Art. Much love to Hedgem0ny for finding this gem!)
This model might look like it belongs in Team Fortress 2, but it wasn't built in the Source engine - it's a 6.75" statue made from metal wire and Jumping Clay! If you want to see more pictures of gunnhed's creation, you can find a few over on deviantART. I'll just sit here and patiently wait for an Aardman style stop-motion short...
