The mildly-bizarre partnership between Mass Effect 3 and...Kingdoms of Amalur was announced with a wonderful piece of art. That piece was the work of Mike "Daarken" Lim, a freelance games artist whose stuff we'll be looking at today.
Beginning his career in 2004 creating monsters for Wizards of the Coast (creators of Magic: the Gathering), in 2007 Daarken moved onto Mythic and worked on Warhammer Online, before eventually going freelance and working for clients like EA and Blizzard.
In the gallery above you'll see his work for Warhammer Online, Kingdoms of Amalur, Blizzard's World of Warcraft card game and Magic: The Gathering.
