A lot of the time in video games you get the impression the art direction is handed down from corporate headquarters. The company bigwigs have decided on a committee approved aesthetic and the artists at the low end of the totem pole are ordered not to deviate from the plan.
I’ve always gotten the impression it’s the opposite at Arenanet. How else to you explain the wide gap between what a corporation might find marketable and the races of Tyria like charr or asura. The artists lead at Arenanet, and the guys at the top get behind them.
As a result you see artistic pieces that not only look beautiful but are often translated straight into the game.
The Arenanet blog has a post just throwing up some landscapes for fun.
