    The first one, the “Hub of Time” is so amazing I just can’t get over it. Just imagine a city on top of all the gears, the gears slowly grind away as the cities on top slowly spin with them.

    Just seems like something that would be amazing in a video game 🙂

  17. foozlesprite

    Heh…guys, he’s already got a job with ArenaNet, and they pay him to draw this exact stuff. Of course it’s as good as what you see in games; it IS what you see in games!

    wow! i love your art so much it’s very inspiring. i hope that one day i will be as good as you ;p

  30. Noah

    Wow these are absolutely incredible! I was playing a Star Wars video game recently, and you could unlock art and drawings and your artwork was as good as theirs or better! I think Halo has art like that too. I honestly think that you should contact Lucasarts and/or Bungie and send them some of your art. Perhaps you could get a job at one or both of them.

  31. gaby

    “Big Ass Structure” eh?

    wow what a silly name for such art

  32. Ravi

    Awesome and incredible! !!!

  41. Rob Wallace

    I can’t fathom the amount of talent it takes to create these illustrations. I fear there is little money in it — I could be wrong, I hope so.

  43. Roar

    normaly I don’t comment on stuff I find via StumbleUpon, but this time I wish it had more than two buttons..In addition to “dislike” and “I like it!”, I’m missing a button called “awestruck!” hats of for an amazingly creative mind, and skillful hand!

  44. sona

  48. fish

    If I ever came across one of scenes in a video game that would be it for me I would be hooked.

  49. Donald Speer

    This is real art!

  50. kealini

    Only attracted to the dark side, as so many are. It’s so easy, so tempting.
    Your art is sad, it depicts sad stories of power and violence. Only the dark sides of humanity.
    How do you think your pictures influence the next generation?
    Try the other side. Draw nice and enjoyable lives, make us smile, laugh.
    Make the future a better place, by drawing better places.

  51. cami
