The Explosive Art of Modern Warfare 3

Like its predecessor, Black Ops, don't assume that because Modern Warfare 3 is a game starring explosions and ruined buildings that it doesn't have gorgeous concept art.

Because like its predecessor, its art is moody, vibrant and, most surprising of all, colourful.

These images are all the work of concept artist Robin Chyo and are mostly environment pieces with the exception of a few storyboard shots.

Most of the scenes made it into the game in one form or another, and they all look great. What I like most, though, is how he manages to sneak a few gags in, something you wouldn't expect from such a humourless series. Keep an eye out for a Frenchman in a bathtub, for example.

You can see more of Chyo's work at his personal site.

To see the larger pics in all their glory (or so you can save them as wallpaper), right-click on the "expand" icon on the main image above and select "open in new tab".

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!
