Drake's Attic - Uncharted 4, artwork by Naughty Dog
"Had a blast doing this one", Naughty Dog concept artist John Sweeney wrote in a blogpost about the art of Uncharted 4. "The prompt was to create a concept for Nathan Drakes man cave above his home with Elena. Trying to incorporate iconic things from previous Uncharted games like Nate's jacket, Tibetan Flags, and various hidden treasures from the game world, I had initially had the hanging sheets of paper as various treasure hunting job's that Nate had to pass on because of him being settled down." However, the Uncharted 4 team decided this was a bit too depressing for the game, so Sweeney was asked to change them to drawings of various foe’s from Drake’s past.
Sweeney next added a personal touch to make the concept art for Nathan Drake’s Attic even more intimate. "I wanted the mood of this to feel inviting, so I picked a lighting situation similar to my childhood living room in evening light, when I'd generally play video games alone in the house while I waited for my parents to come home from work."
Drake's Attic is an original art print from concept art used in the production of Uncharted 4. This museum-grade limited edition is hand-numbered and comes with an artist-signed certificate of authenticity.
