Ito-san apologizes that he couldn't upload the "high-reso version" of the art. It's small, but work's reveal remains more than we would have received without his tweet.

Masahiro Ito has been designing monsters and art for Silent Hill titles since the original installment. His work as an art director for Silent Hill 2 brought to life one of the most recognizable figures from the entire series: Pyramid Head. Today, Ito-san revealed a piece of concept art, albeit a small one, from a since cancelled Silent Hill game.

Revealed via Ito-san’s Twitter account, the the text accompanying the image tells us that the art was for an early section of a game being made in 2013. While fielding some responses to the tweet, Ito-san pointed out that he couldn’t talk about the art too extensively since it would reveal “some metaphors of [the game’s] story.”

However, one detail Ito-san did point out was that he was not involved with P.T. It seems that this would imply that the concept art was to a completely different Silent Hill title cancelled before the Silent Hills‘ playable teaser was released in 2014.
