Is this early official art?

We can see here multiple dragons with dragon riders. This is certainly not canon, but I wonder if this is official in the sense that it was provided by Sega / Team Andromeda?

I dont think it is

An ex co-worker of mine made CG illustrations for magazines (covers, story intros) in 1990s and early 2000s and he was amazed how often his work was assumed to be official, when it was just something he was contracted for the article and had no team feedback on

Magazines need really clean images or they print bad, and in those days even the CG (or even concept art) for in development games wasnt rendered / scanned crisp enough for print . So they’d make some background things and layer screenshots on top of it
