Behold, Torchlight II’s Cover Art
Torchlight II finally has feature cover art. Developer Runic Games has been working on the art for some time now (and keeping it pretty well guarded), and now finally has an image it’s ready to show the world. The image is the work of concept artist Kyle Cornelius, and was fully detailed on Runic Games’ official Torchlight II site.
Here’s a quick description of the piece above from Cornelius:
This is actually the second iteration of of this particular cover. The goal with this version was to more prominently feature our player classes in a very comic book style layout. The team has done an excellent job of creating a diverse group of heroes, each with unique personalities, and we thought it best that they be the focus. The Torchlight cover did this well, and we thought it best to keep the familiar feel, while showing off the more refined art style for the sequel.
And from Torchlight II art director Jason Beck:
We tried a couple different compositions. One featured our villain looming over the four player characters, which was nice in its own right, but we went with this version of the cover because of a greater focus on the four. We wanted it to have some similarities to the Torchlight cover and since Torchlight II is now a multiplayer game it felt right to keep the focus on the characters working as a group.
