The Many Faces Of Trip And Other Enslaved: Journey To The West Artwork

By Spencer . January 3, 2011 . 12:38pm


Ninja Theory artist Alessandro Taini posted pieces of concept art for Enslaved: Journey to the West on his blog.


A couple drafts show different designs for the game’s two protagonists, Monkey and Trip.

This artwork is akin to their final design.

Taini is hoping to put concept art of Enslaved and Heavenly Sword plus personal works in an art book called "Talexi’s World." Anyone interested in seeing more of his art?

    Yeah, that first picture where she grows them heavily noticeable tears?

    All I could think was “She’s turning Emo?”

    …Yeah, it sort of colored my expectations for the rest of the gallery.

    So, in the end Ninja Theory decided to give Nariko from HS new clothes and a new hairstyle.

    I would very much like to get this artbook. The green poster w/ Trip on Monkey’s back and the dragonfly is supposed to be the cover for the soundtrack, but it’s only available digitally.. otherwise I would get the CD w/ that cover art..

  • Would love to see more of his work. Adored Enslaved and everything about the characters (certainly design was a big part of that).

  • Emo trip is scary :(

    Really though this is very good artwork. The one with Trip piggybacking on Monkey and Trip in her bedroom I would love to own as a canvas or a glossy poster.

    looks nice ^^

    too bad ninja theory is lacking on the gameplay department, i wonder how the DMC game will fare on the previous titles?
