MOTHER 2 / EarthBound Concept Art:

In June 2003 the MOTHER 1+2 Art Book was published to go along with the release of MOTHER 1+2 for the Game Boy Advance. This book contains many concept sketches and pictures from the early stages of MOTHER 2's production and locations such as Dalaam and Winters can be viewed here as they once existed in the minds of the game developers. It is interesting to compare the concepts with that which was ultimately included in the game as some of the sketches are very different.
  • conceptart/Dungeon Man

    Dungeon Man

    A closeup of the top of Brick Road’s Dungeon Man. It looks as if an entire fortress was meant to be built on top of his head at one point! Also, we can see that the environment is very different than the desert of Scaraba where he is found in the game.

  • conceptart/Dalaam1

    Dalaam 1

    Instead of clouds, Dalaam may have been perched atop a giant rockform elephant. And is that Poo meditating up there?

  • conceptart/Dalaam2

    Dalaam 2

    Another early concept of Dalaam. This looks more like the actual kingdom with its tiered design. It's interesting to note that there seems to be a similar mountain top settlement in the background of this sketch.

  • conceptart/Lab

    Dr. Andonuts's Lab

    An early idea for Dr. Andonuts's lab. Looking much more outlandish than its final version, the words "Mad Scientist" are actually written around the door. Perhaps the rocket in the background was meant to be the first Sky Runner.

  • conceptart/Ness’s House

    Ness's House

    A simple sketch of Ness's house and the mountains behind it.

  • conceptart/Saturn Valley

    Saturn Valley

    A view from the top of Saturn Valley. In the background we can see the hot springs and a number of Saturn homes, even a Mr. Saturn UFO!

  • conceptart/Stonehenge

    Stonehenge

    A sketch of Jeff inspecting Stonehenge. There’s no snow around, so it seems as though the rock formation was not initially meant to be located in winters. This is the second sketch in which we see Jeff with a bicycle which suggests that he may have been slated for a much more involved solo adventure at some point.

  • conceptart/Lost Underworld

    The Lost Underworld

    A picture of The Lost Underworld from a ground-level view. Although an early concept sketch, the designs for the Chomposaur and Wetnosaur enemies remained practically unchanged.

  • conceptart/Winters1

    Winters 1

    It seems that Winters may have, at one time, been a farming village instead of the densely forested area we know from the game. The livestock in this sketch appear to be much less “gruff” as well.

  • conceptart/Winters2

    Winters 2

    A much more familiar Winters scene. Jeff, now depicted in his classic green suit, comes upon a campsite near the lake with Bubble Monkey in tow.

  • conceptart/Lake Tess

    Lake Tess

    In this sketch we can see Jeff riding on the back of Tessie (spelled Tassy) out on the lake being observed by a Tessie watcher. Once again, there is no snow so this area may not have originally been in Winters.

  • conceptart/Tessie

    Tessie

    Jeff meets Tessie in a different way in this scene. It seems as though Jeff was riding in a small boat when Tessie came and surfaced right beneath him! No sign of Bubble Monkey here so this could have been the original idea for that part of the game.
