The Art Behind Star Citizen, Space Gaming's Triumphant ReturnS

Forget the most exciting thing I've heard this week. The announcement of Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts' return to space-based PC games, complete with bombastic trailer, is the most exciting video game news I've heard in years.

So it's a pleasure in tonight's Fine Art to be able to share some concept images from the game's production thus far.

If you thought some of the images in the trailer reminded you of Wing Commander, well...that's not going to change here. Those fighters are Kilrathi in everything but name.

To see the larger pics in all their glory (or, if they're big enough, so you can save them as wallpaper), right-click on them below and select "open in new tab".

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