NEW: The Classics Collection
Hello everyone! The last few months I have been digging through tons of archived sites, videos and reverse image searches in search of one thing. Concept art. I am obsessed with concept art, and I believe more people should see the early drafts of what inspired their favorite games and levels.
I would like to do some explaining as to everything that went into this, some decisions made and more but I will save that for a reply when this is posted. This is a thread for specifically rare-uncommon renders, concept arts and promotional arts. A few common ones are tossed in however.
Hitman Codename 47 Concept & Promo Art
(Credit to @GamersEatCrisps for this picture above and some of the other unshaded linearts.)
(I apologize for my guesses of the what order these were created in getting messed up at this point. Trying to keep it just a little organized.)
(Thanks to @Luiluix for this one above, he also provided another render or two you will see soon in the Blood Money section. I apologize if any duplicates get in here.)
There is a lower-res version of this with no watermark.
This extremely rare render of Ochoa is only preserved in a very small form, unfortunately.
(The bullet hole is not a part of the original image.)
(This is also from Luiluix.)
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin Concept & Promo Art
Added the remaining character renders in an update reply.
Alternate render of the Tunnel Rat loading screen? There will be a few alternate renders.
Added the rest of these drawn concepts in an update reply.
I do not know what game this one below is for. I believe it is H2:SA.
Alternate render. There is a full version somewhere.
Here is a more full version (in terms of height, at least) of the St Petersburg Stakeout loading screen.
Two renders snipped from the Prima Game Guide.
I added the remaining H2:SA posed character renders in an update reply. Thank you to @Firepower for uploading some of the high-res versions!
Thank you to ZT1 for uploading the high quality version of this.
Hitman Contracts Concept & Promo Art
A version with no tree or bed.
I cannot confirm if this one is for Contracts above. I believe it is.
Higher-res alternate render.
A few of these aren’t that lost, only if you know where to look.
Full version of Frantz’ target picture.
The Contracts trailer, the Spas-12 render I posted above and this alternate render all have an earlier head model.
Thank you to Luiluix for these next two.
These next few are textures from Rendezvous in Rotterdam, I could not tell if they were concept art or not but after seeing the one above posted by ZT1 I believe they are.
There were also a few others with IOI game-related logos.
Hitman Blood Money Concept & Promo Art
Credit to @getro_gamer for some of these next ones if I remember correctly.
(Credit to Luiluix for these next three)
There are a few more, though I haven’t really seen most of them other than in this big compilation image below.
Might as well post this one.
There is a version of this above where he the guns are not drawn, used on one of the Steam sale promotions.
Hitman Absolution Concept & Promo Art
I apologize for my bad cropping jobs.
Again I am sure there are higher quality and higher res versions out there, please do post if you come across any.
I will have to start updating this thread in replies as I am reaching the character limit. I will hopefully be able to post links to all of these replies here. The WOA is coming eventually.
