Mystery of the new concept art

I'm sorry but this is getting annoying. This stuff is just getting lost in numerous threads. I demand closure on this subject.

For some reason the original barneyinblue link was replaced with this image...

Original link...

What is that art for, where did the second image originate? Why is there a watermark of what looks to be a well-dressed man and someone else on the concept art?

Looks to me like its just the artists displaying their creativity. They wouldn't display concept art on walls free to have their picture taken.

They're from user PoliticalGamer, who visited Valve recently.

The second link doesn't work for me, it shows some sort of in-game screenshot of a painting.

Here you go.

I don't understand why I'm seeing this.

In the 'Half-Life 2: Episode 3 -- Where are You? (Part Deux)'-thread I was able to see the image, but now I see this weird image again.

Maybe some sort of imageshack replacement image?

The second pic looks more like something from GoldSource, not anything current. The FIRST pic, I have no clue at all. Some bits look a little Combine (the ships), but this really does not look like something from Half Life unless Gordon and Alyx make a huge time jump sometime. sm

The picture with the oil painting in it looks like a screenshot from some other game.

I don't know why but it reminds me of Deus Ex or System Shock 2 or something.

Didn't Valve just hire the designer for those, and Thief.

I'm calling it now, just because if I turn out right, that would be epic....

ARG!!!!

Now where the hell did barneyinblue get that image and how does the same link now have a new image?

Barnz must have removed the picture and it now redirects to one of his other images. This particular screenshot is from SiN, which Barnz is a fan of.

SiN is a great game. This is not an ARG. It's not rocket science.
