Saul's Demon is the final raid boss in the Guild Wars 2 raid Bastion of the Penitent. It was released alongside the Living World chapter "The Head of the Snake" on February 8, 2017. This creature is the manifestation of the all the inner demons of the character, Saul D'Alessio.
I was responsible for the concept, model and texture. Additional concept guidance was provided by Tsveta Komaticheva and Carlyn Lim.
This was my first task done for Arenanet. It was a great challenge and a lot of fun. The hand motif was used in the design to symbolize the fallen soldiers that died at Saul's hand. They also served as a way to show the inner turmoil and torture going on in Saul's mind. The hands resting like a mantle around the demon is also a visual nod to the White Mantle which imprisoned Saul.
