The final product rarely met those expectations, and will be shuttered on January 31, 2012. While the game will soon be gone, though, that early stuff — like this concept art — will never die.
This early concept art was done by Netdevil’s Dave Kang, who in addition to his work on LEGO Universe has done pieces for Jumpgate Evolution, Fortune and an online game based on Avatar (the cartoon, not the movie).
You can see more of Dave’s awesome art at his personal site.
Fine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists.
