Look from the possibility I made look like an idiot, lock if old news by the way however I haven't seen these posted anywhere before.

 

I came across this dump of RDR2 concept art which was posted by former Senior Art Director Daren Bader 2 months ago. An interesting look into the creative process of the elusive Rockstar Games. 

I was going to Embed the whole lot into this thread but there is way to many lol.

Dude a lot of these concept arts have names, "guamawest" "guamaeast" "guamamonastery", you've just stumbled upon a gold mine of cut things and initial concepts for us to analyze

This guy is one of the very first concept art pieces of Arthur Morgan, if you download the image it's titled "arthurmorgan04"

TBH those were probably posted with permission, could be a good sign we're still seeing that artbook, or R* let him post it. He worked on RDR1 as well and he has no concept art for that, so permission may have been involved.

Bro, Guarma was absolutely going to be the “Mexico chapter” of RDR2.

 

Damn, what could have been. This is more upsetting than never getting that SP DLC for GTA V lol

I covered iron cloud and beta grizzlies a bit in this and found Adlers ranch was a family ranch not too long ago, this concept seems to confirm that.

Arthur concept also looks like Micah. La Capilla looks like it had a crypt that maybe led down to El Hueco? Possibly also the floating corpse i found in beta guama location.

One of the shots in the teaser trailer is called "Canyon"

 

Besides some vegetation theres another script moment of "Canyon Talk"

No way a veteran dev would violate an NDA so I think someone just got angry this got popular... Wouldn't have posted it if he knew he couldn't.

Exactly, as far as I remember the page said the artworks post was published 2 months ago and nothing happened until now... That's clearly someone who got angry when that came popular

The names of the images were very telling. I think this probably had something to do with that Artbook.

 

I saved them all just to read the names lol
