This Video Game Art Is Entirely Off-Topic (Sorry, Darksiders Fans!)

Thought I'd try something a little different with today's Fine Art. Instead of showing the art of a video game, I thought I'd show off some of the art of video game artists.

Which aren't always the same thing!

On the night of Friday, Sept. 23, Vigil Games—developers of the Darksiders series—will be hosting a party/concert/art exhibition at The Art Department in Austin, Texas. Despite carrying the label of the development studio, it's got nothing to do with video games; instead, it's a chance for the art team at Vigil (including comics star Joe Madureira) to show what they do outside of drawing big monsters and big swords.

In addition to the booze and music (Austin funk band Hard Proof will be playing), all the items on show will be on sale.

Entry is free, so if you're in the area, it sounds like an awesome way to spend a Friday night!

Fine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists. If you're in the business and have some concept, environment or character art you'd like to share, drop us a line!
