  • On the one hand, I love looking at these concept arts because of how awesome they look. On the other, I can't shake the feeling that so many of them look so much better than the final product. Those alpha Weaver designs were absolutely fantastic, very surreal and alien, yet also recognizably insectoid, which suits Weaver's theme perfectly.

    • I looked over the entire thread and I must say that I completely love it! The thing that made me laugh the most was the Skeleton King picture with the "fun icons", his ultimate was basically "flipping the bird" to his enemies.

      • I have several saved Dota-related images that I can't identify. Can anyone help out?

        No idea what this one is:


        These look like a mix between Treant and Tiny to me!


        My guess is that these are concepts for Undying's ultimate form.

          No idea what this one is:
          Terrorblade aka soul keeper ... in his demonic form
          the normal model should be simmilar to AM...since the're brothers
          If it wasn't for LoL, there'd be no Dota2.
          If it wasn't for DotA, there'd be no LoL
          If there was no AoS, there'd be no DotA.
          It's a genre:
          Just because its different doesn't mean its wrong.
          Just because its the same, doesn't mean its wrong.

          • The first picture has been identified as the earliest Night Stalker there was; as for the rest, you seem to be pretty spot-on. The stony things look like they're from the ancient camp as of me.
            Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

            • those are some crazy designs for Treant, if they are him, wow.

              The second one almost resembles modern Treant. It's got a beard and a little bird, but it walks hunched over like a gorilla. That particular art doesn't look like an ancient camp to me, just a very rough, early idea for Treant as more of a hunched over old man type creature, probably more inspired by Treebeard (although he wasn't hunched over, he was very old).

                  Pit Lord, labeled as "Abyssal Underlord":


                  Brewmaster. I remember the first week he was out, he still used the black-and-white color scheme:



                  Death Prophet:


                  Elder Titan:



                  Enchantress:

                  Lifestealer:


                  Lycan (apparently final):


                  Magnus:



                  Medusa:


                  Luna:


                  Necrolyte:


                  Phantom Lancer:


                  Queen of Pain (I believe):


                  Razor:


                  Tidehunter (note the flattened face in the profile portrait):


                  Witch Doctor:



                  Edit: And creep and map concept art as well:

                            • Am i the only one who thinks those Undying ulti forms (especially the second one) are waaaaay better than the one we ended up having?
                              I personally hate the one that is in game. It's so out of context with respect to its normal form. Looks like a giant dumb scooby-dooish monster. And why do the teeth change from scary point ones to goofy squared ones i'll never understand.
